A small local chain of upscale restaurants may be opening a new location, taking over the space where a location of a chain of Australian-themed restaurants had been.
The Framingham Source is reporting that Burton's Grill is looking to open in the former Outback Steakhouse space on Route 9 in Framingham, with the License Commission looking into the proposal later today. If approved, the 190-seat restaurant would offer contemporary American fare including sandwiches, burgers, steak, and seafood--along with gluten-free and vegetarian options. Currently, outlets of the Andover-based Burton's can be found locally in Burlington, Hingham, North Andover, Peabody, Shrewsbury, Westford, and Nashua, NH, with a handful of others being in Connecticut, Maryland, Virginia, and North Carolina.
Outback's Framingham location shut down in early 2017.
The address for the proposed location of Burton's Grill in Framingham is 30 Worcester Road (Route 9), Framingham, MA, 01702.
November 26 update: Wicked Local states that Burton's Grill hopes to open in April of 2019.
