Garbanzo Is Opening at Arsenal Yards in Watertown

A Colorado-based restaurant chain that focuses on Mediterranean food is opening a second Boston-area location, and this one will be in a new complex near the Boston line that is slowly but surely becoming home to a number of other dining and drinking spots.

According to a press release, Garbanzo is planning to open at Arsenal Yards in Watertown, joining another outlet that debuted on Boylston Street in downtown Boston last month. Once it opens (sometime later this year), expect to see such items as salads, stuffed pitas, wraps, gyros, baklava, and more at the new location.

Arsenal Yards is currently home to Shake Shack, Pepe's Pizza, Ben and Jerry's, Chipotle, and City Works Eatery and Pour House, with more new restaurants on the way including Kura Sushi, The Gallows, Tori Jiro, Condesa Restaurante Mexicano, and Pokeworks.
