Margaritaville Boston to open this summer

From Boston.com: “Boston will soon be home to Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville

Own a Hawaiian shirt? Good. You’re going to need it when Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville opens in Boston this summer.

On Thursday, the company announced on Facebook that the tropical-themed chain would be opening its doors in Boston this year, stating “It’s about the attitude, not the latitude. Boston’s getting a Margaritaville Restaurant this summer!”

No further details were given regarding where or when the restaurant would open. The company did not immediately respond to Boston.com’s request for comment.

When it opens, Margaritaville Boston will be the restaurant’s first New England outpost, and will likely include similar dishes found at its other locations: fish tacos, chicken fajitas, crab cakes, and teriyaki sirloin, plus a vast selection of margaritas and summer cocktails.

Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville hospitality company launched in Key West, Fla., in 1985, and operates retail outlets, vacation clubs, hotels, rental homes, and casinos, as well as restaurants that, in addition to its namesake Margaritaville restaurant, include Air Margaritaville, Landshark Bar & Grill, 5 O’Clock Somewhere Bar, and Cheeseburger in Paradise. There are currently close to 30 Margaritaville locations, many attached to resorts in places like Atlantic City, N.J.; Paradise Island, Bahamas; and Montego Bay, Jamaica.

Stay tuned for more information on when and where Margaritaville will be opening in Boston.
