Mezcala Tex-Mex Grill (Formerly Zuma) in Boston's Faneuil Hall Has Apparently Closed

A longtime Tex-Mex restaurant in the heart of Boston that recently changed its name appears to have shut down permanently.

According to a source within the Friends of Boston's Hidden Restaurants Facebook group page, Mezcala Tex-Mex Grill in Faneuil Hall has closed for good, with a Facebook post from Steve Harnish (who had been a General Manager of the place) saying that "the run is over. It took a worldwide pandemic to kill it, but its officially over. Just was too hard to see a path forward." Mezcala, which has been closed since the outbreak of the coronavirus in March, had been called Zuma Tex-Mex Grill until changing its name early this year after settling a naming controversy between it and Zuma Boston, a high-end Japanese restaurant in the Back Bay that opened last year.

Zuma first opened in Faneuil Hall approximately 20 years ago.

The address for Mezcala Tex-Mex Grill (and the former Zuma) was 7 N Market Street, Boston, MA, 02109.
