Wahlburgers will open in the Hingham Shipyard part of town, across the street from their other group restaurant venture, the 2-year-old Alma Nove.
The punny name Wahlburgers was previously trademarked by Rochester, N.Y.-based restaurant chain Tom Wahl's, which offers a product called the "Wahlburger." St. Croix says this surprised him and his partners, as opening a restaurant called Wahlburgers "was a thing we had talked about for several years."
This group has since secured a "full spectrum" use of the Wahlburgers name. They are also looking into opening a pizzeria in Boston next spring.
