It looks like a trio of Mexican restaurants will be opening a fourth location, with this one moving into the space where a Mediterranean eatery had been.

According to a Twitter post from @TheDrewStarr (via a tweet from @JohnSPepper), Amelia's Taqueria is opening in the old Zest Mediterranean Grille space in Boston's Back Bay, with the tweets indicating that it will also be moving next door to a location of Boloco, a group of dining spots known in part for their burritos. Based on the menu at the other locations of Amelia's in Allston, Cleveland Circle in Brighton, and by Northeastern University, expect to see burritos here as well, along with nachos, tacos, quesadillas, chimichangas, tortas, fajitas, and more.

The space that Amelia's is moving into had once also been home to a location of Spike's Junkyard Dogs.

The address for this upcoming Mexican restaurant in the Back Bay is: Amelia's Taqueria, 1076 Boylston Street, Boston, MA, 02115. The website for Amelia's is at
