A Somerville burger restaurant under the direction of a local restaurant group has closed, but it’s not gone for good. Burger Dive (702 Grand Union Blvd.) shut down on Sunday, August 11, after seven years operating at Assembly Row, according to Chris Damian of the Legendary Restaurant Group, which operated Burger Dive and runs Papagayo and Sip Wine Bar & Kitchen.
“That brand is near and dear to us,” Damian told Eater, sharing that though the physical footprint of Burger Dive is gone, the hospitality group will continue to operate it as a catering arm while seeking a new location for the restaurant, possibly in downtown Boston or the Seaport District. Damian said he would consider the possibility of a full-service Burger Dive, keeping options open for fast-casual as well.
A message posted to Burger Dive’s website thanked customers for their continued support. The restaurant served a lengthy list of burgers in the $5 to $8 range, with specials and build-your-own options, as well as hot dogs, chicken sandwiches, fries, sides, salads, and milkshakes. Burger Dive also served spiked milkshakes, in-house only.
The Burger Dive restaurant in Somerville will become a Chase bank, which will open in December. Stay tuned for further details on a potential new location for Burger Dive.
