Rainforest Cafe in Burlington Mall Closes Doors
By: Rich Hosford
A well-loved location for family dining has closed.
The Rainforest Café in the Burlington Mall closed over the weekend.
During last Thursday’s Planning Board meeting representatives of VHB Inc. and Simon Mall were there for a minor engineering change in regards to a new furniture store that will take over the location. They were seeking permission to move a transformer to two parking spaces and to create an exterior doorway for furniture pickups by customers.
People expressed both surprise and sadness over the restaurant’s closing on a popular Facebook page for Burlington parents.
“That is too bad. That was one place my niece with a dairy allergy could go to because they had dairy free buns on the burgers and the fries were cooked in separate oil,” one person wrote.
“Oh no! My kids love it, even when we're not eating there, we visit it,” said another.
During the Planning Board meeting it was not stated which furniture store would occupy the site.
