Congratulations to Paul Wahlberg, former chef at Nathans, who opened his Wahlburgers burger place today near home in Hingham, MA. His business partner is brother Mark Wahlberg.
After Paul left Nathans he and his wife returned to the Boston area. For a while he was back in the restaurant biz, and then for a while went on location to cook for his actor brother (sound familiar? as in "Entourage") and then returned to Hingham to open his own place, Alma Nova (named after Mom, Alma). Alma Nova is next door to the prototype Wahlburgers.
I hope for Paul that this is just the first installment of his burger business. Go Paul! Open one in DC. Then, Top Chef!
