Reports of Olecito's Demise Are Greatly Exaggerated

A Chowhound poster is wondering if the Brookline Village Olecito has shuttered. The thing is, it hasn't even opened yet. Chowhound nader reported that the Cypress Street Olecito has "been closed on the two occasions I've gone so far - both being in the evening at suppertime (6-8pm), once on a weeknight and the other this past Saturday night. Has anyone heard what's going on here? Are they in trouble already??" Nope! Chef Erwin Ramos told us recently that he expects to open Olecito Brookline (along with the BU location) in the first week of September. In the meantime, perhaps we can all dial the alarmism back just a touch.
