A new restaurant called Rincon Mexicano ("Mexican corner") will open at 99 Broadway in East Somerville this Wednesday, March 5, according to a tipster, who also notes that a sign in the window promises 50% off all menu items on opening day. It appears that the space was formerly home to a convenience store called Capital Brasil.
There are a number of restaurants around the country that go by the same name, but this doesn't appear to be connected to any of those. Hit up the tipline if you have any intel or get your hands on a menu.
UPDATE: A reader visited on opening day and shared some details about the menu — there are tacos ($2/each); appetizers and smaller plates (about $4-$7), including "excellent" flautas; tortas; chile rellenos; and more. The homemade salsa is the best the reader has ever had.
