Besito Mexican, the authentic Mexican food concept from restaurateur John Tunney III, is opening its first two Massachusetts locations in Burlington and in Chestnut Hill later this summer.

Tunney currently has three Besito Mexican locations in New York and Connecticut, but has been looking to open a restaurant in the Boston area. Besito Mexican at The Burlington Mall will open its doors on June 17 followed by The Mall at Chestnut Hill location in September 2014. Both restaurants will boast over 100 seats and have a full bar with over 75 tequilas available for margaritas, sangria, and even tequila flights.

The menu developed by executive chefs Carlos Arellano and Scott Wojcik includes appetizers like tableside guacamole, a jumbo lump crab cake with roasted habanero cream sauce, and shrimp taquitos with chipotle cream salsa. The eatery’s menu features an assortment of tacos and enchiladas such as tacos al pastor with pineapple and guajillo marinated pork and enchiladas suizas with shredded chicken, tomatillo cream sauce, and queso Chihuahua. Entrees include staples like Pescado Veracruzana, a rotating selection of fresh local fish cooked in a light Veracruz sauce with tomatoes, sweet peppers, olives and capers; and Filete de Res al Chipotle, a Negra Modelo marinated filet mignon with chipotle salsa, queso Chihuahua, nopales, and plantains.
