A suburban restaurant that gained national recognition last year has been shut down, and it is not known what the future holds for the place.

According to an article from Wicked Local, Villatoro Restaurant and Cafe in Marlborough is closed after being seized by the Department of Revenue for nonpayment of taxes, with signs out front saying that it is now in possession of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. A Facebook page for the Lincoln Street eatery has posted a note about the issue, saying the following:

To our loyal patrons, we will be closed until further notice....What we thought was a turn key restaurant ended needing major renovations that delayed our opening almost a full year and used up our savings....In the end we owe money to the state for meal taxes....I have confidence with a little more time we could fix this problem, but we need help. If anyone knows anyone that is interested in investing in us, please have them contact me."


Villatoro Restaurant and Cafe, which first opened in September of 2016, is known in part for its Guatemalan dishes along with American and regional comfort food items. The eatery was chosen by Travel and Leisure as one of the 25 best diners in the United States last June.

The address for Villatoro Restaurant and Cafe is 353 Lincoln Street, Marlborough, MA, 01752.
