La Casa de Pedro in Watertown Has Closed

by Marc Hurwitz

What was once a pair of Venezuelan restaurants has now apparently disappeared from the landscape, at least for now.

According to several sources, including posters within the Friends of Boston's Hidden Restaurants Facebook group page, La Casa de Pedro in Watertown is no longer in operation, with the Watertown News confirming this while a post on the restaurant's Facebook page states that "Today, the doors close to create a new adventure, for you! Stay tuned, watch closely, for we want you to be our first to share our table once again, friends of La Casa de Pedro." It is not known what could be coming into the Arsenal Street space, nor is it known if the owners of the dining spot will be opening something in that space or are looking to open a restaurant elsewhere; as soon as we find out more, we will post an update here.

La Casa de Pedro first opened in Watertown Square approximately 25 years ago, eventually moving to what was its current location in East Watertown; another location in Boston's Seaport District closed last summer and a company affiliated with the dining spot filed for bankruptcy.

The address for the now-closed La Casa de Pedro in Watertown was 343 Arsenal Street, Watertown, MA, 02472.

[March 6 update: The Boston Globe states that La Casa de Pedro in Watertown shut down in the wake of bankruptcy proceedings, with the restaurant having to be sold off in order to pay off debt that was amassed from the now-closed Seaport District location.]
