A burger spot that temporarily closed a few years ago has apparently closed for good, and it looks like a Mexican restaurant with a somewhat similar name will replace it.
According to a poster within the Friends of Boston's Hidden Restaurants Facebook group along with a couple of sources, Bruno's Bar + Burger in Lynn is no longer in business, with this being confirmed within the North Shore Eats Facebook group. Another poster within the Friends of Boston's Hidden Restaurants thread mentions that a new spot called Bruno's Tequila Bar & Cocina is taking over the Western Avenue space, and a Facebook page for the place shows that it will indeed be opening there, classifying itself as a Mexican restaurant and saying that it will be "serving the freshest Mexican and Latin food with rumba and drink of all types!" The poster says that the new spot could be opening sometime next month, though no specific opening date has been given as of yet.
Bruno's Bar + Burger, which first opened in early 2015, closed its doors in August of 2016 but reopened--apparently under new ownership--a couple of months later.
The address for the upcoming Bruno's Tequila Bar & Cocina is 858 Western Avenue, Lynn, MA, 01905. Its Facebook page is at https://www.facebook.com/brunostequilabar/
April 25 update: A Facebook post from the place indicates that Bruno's Tequila Bar & Cocina could be opening as soon as the first week of May.
