Naked Fish stripped...to become Pedros?

Just drove by Naked Fish in Burlington and sign says "Pedros" coming soon.
......I just googled and found out its Casa de Pedro from Watertown. OMG
this is fabulous news for the Burlington area. I remember Pedro's original
little spot in Watertown...then he moved to new local. So great to hear a second
incarnation is coming. I could bathe in that chocolate flan they make.

    Pedro took over a Naked Fish location at the Watertown Arsenal complex. so history repeats itself.

      I believe I read somewhere that the Naked Fish location in Framingham is going to be an outpost of the chain Margarita's.

          Honestly for chain mex it's not bad. Better than Naked Fish IMHO.

        Pedros is one of the worst restaurants I have ever eaten at. It's overpriced and lacks good flavor. For the money they charge I would rather eat at a much better restaurant.

                But I have to admit that Naked Fish had good fries. I don't really like fries, but I liked theirs.

                I wanna like Casa de Pedro, but agree that most dishes are pretty lame. The Pabellon Criollo is not bad, not great, but not bad. The fried empanadas are also okay, again, not great.

                  They have a braised short rib dish that's pretty good (again only pretty good), but I often see theater performances at the theater next door, and it's easy to grab a quick bite and margarita or two before the performance. That said, I wouldn't go there unless I was attending the theater.

                    I agree that most of the food is nothing special, but as the OP mentioned, they do have great flan.

                    That's too bad. The original location was pretty good when Pedro would do his own market shopping and cooking.
