A Mexican restaurant that our sister site has featured as an under-the-radar spot to check out is going to be opening a new location.
According to a source, La Siesta in Winthrop is planning to open in Peabody, with a Salem News article stating that it will be moving into a building in the downtown area that is in the process of being redeveloped. The post says that in addition to La Siesta, Brodie's Pub will also be moving into the Main Street building as well, with its space being a larger one than its old location which is a block away on Lowell Street. Based on the Salem News article, it appears that this is a second location of La Siesta rather than a move, and that the new spot could be opening in three months or possibly a bit less if all goes as planned.
La Siesta has been mentioned on the Boston's Hidden Restaurants site as a hidden place to go to for Mexican cuisine, with the review being found at the following link:
The address for the new location of La Siesta will be 1 Main Street, Peabody, MA, 01960; the website for the original location in Winthrop can be found at http://www.lasiestarestaurante.com/
