    Wachusett Brewery Opening in Former John Harvard's Spot

    This week's Restaurant Roundup: a new test kitchen/cafe and another crêpe spot in the Seaport District. (Published Monday, July 8, 2019)

    A chain of hamburger places that closed one of its Boston-area locations last year is apparently reopening the place.

    According to a source, Johnny Rockets is returning to its space in the South Shore Plaza in Braintree, with a page within the site confirming that the restaurant is planning to open back up on August 16. The dining spot, which closed down in early January of 2018, will rejoin existing locations in the region in Acton and Burlington.

    Johnny Rockets, which is based in California, is known in part for its burgers, fries, and shakes.

    The website for the chain can be found at
