El Pelon Taqueria, whose Fenway location was destroyed in January’s massive Peterborough Street fire, has filed for permits to reopen in Washington Square, reports the Brookline TAB Blog. El Pelon’s Jim Hoben confirms that, while a lease hasn’t yet been finalized, the taqueria hopes to open at 1669 Beacon Street by fall. Furthermore, Hoben tells us that El Pelon will reopen on Peterborough Street in approximately a year. This is excellent news for Boston burritophiles who were devastated by the loss of El Pelon. By the by, for those of you who are keeping track at home, this will be Brookline’s ninth taqueria.
