It’s been a while since the neighborhood meetings for the new Tenoch Mexican take-out restaurant at 1-3 Lewis Street by Alvaro Sandoval. We ran into the owner recently at his Greenway food truck. He said his city approvals were coming along and expected to open this Fall.
In the last week, the storefront has been covered with “Coming Soon” signs and a similar notice appears on Tenoch’s Facebook page. Sandoval also operates a Tenoch restaurant in Medford.
Tenoch (http://www.tenochmexican.com/) would be the only Mexican restaurant in the North End and the first since the closing of El Triunfo at 69 Prince Street last year. The location was most recently clothing retailer Ball & Buck and previously a coffee shop, Flamepoeira, and years ago, Nick’s Tavern. The small space on Lewis Street is between Fulton and Commercial Streets.
