Villa Mexico Cafe in Somerville

Less than two months after shuttering its storefront at Grampy’s gas station on Cambridge Street, Villa Mexico Café will return as a “pop-up” restaurant, setting up shop at a Somerville’s Daddy Jones next Wednesday, March 27.

According to an e-mail from Julie King, who owned and operated the popular eatery with her daughter Bessie, a four-course Mexican meal will be offered, along with drinks crafted by Daddy Jones owner Dimitra Tsourianis. Daddy Jones, located at 525 Medford St. in Somerville., will be closed for the evening, allowing Villa Mexico Café  complete use of the space. Seatings take place at 6:30 and 8:30 p.m., and the cost is $50 per person, which includes dinner, fees and gratuity. A cash bar will also be offered. Tickets are available online on a first-come, first served basis at

Julie King also wrote she had been “busy with letter of intent meetings and researching other ideas.”

In January, King wrote Villa Mexico Café would continue with plans to relocate to a street-level storefront at 309 Cambridge St. between The Liberty Hotel and Massachusetts General Hospital’s Paul S. Russell, MD Museum of Medical History and Innovation.  The Beacon Hill Civic Association  board voted not to oppose the proposed move one month earlier.
