BOSTON - After so many reports about restaurants across the state closing, it is refreshing to see the success of one restaurant go over so smoothly they will be expanding into a second location. Tomorrow, Yellow Door Taqueria opens up its second spot for serving hungry guests in Boston, thanks to a report that was first delivered by Maureen Dahill of Caught in Southie.
That's right, tomorrow is the opening date for Yellow Door Taqueria's second location on Harrison Avenue in Southie. This is in addition to the first location of Yellow Door located in the Lower Mills area of Dorchester.
Yellow Door is a Cali-Mex type restaurant that provides delicious cocktails and award-winning (Best of Boston 2019) tacos. At the new spot, dinner will begin at four in the evening and delivery services will provide. Unlike the Dorchester location, Southie's spot will be open to reservations, as well.
Yellow Door Taqueria is set to celebrate its grand expansion efforts in a location that was formerly the home of Lion's Tail. Fortunately, it was not one door closing for one group and opening for another, but rather it was the same group experiencing the overturn. Yellow Door and Lion's Tail were sister restaurants, but the team behind them saw more value in propping up Yellow Door.
This group consists of Ken Casey, the lead musician of the Dropkick Murphy's, and Brian O'Donnell, who own the two Yellow Door locations, as well as Jarek Mountain, who owned Lion's Tail and served as the general manager. He will continue to be the GM for Lion's Tail. Andrew Toto is the GM of the other Yellow Door spot and he will work with chef Carolina Curtin to ensure that the Southie experience is a satisfactory one.
On December 30, Lion's Tail closed and it was reported by Boston Magazine that Yellow Door Taqueria would be replacing it. It didn't take long for that to happen because the day is almost here for Southie foodies to experience the new Yellow Door!
