(Springfield, MA) — Claudio Guerra says he’s closing Mama Iguana’s in Springfield because the Mexican restaurant concept doesn’t work in that space. The restauranteur tells the “Springfield Republican” a broader menu would be needed to fill the 350 seats there every night. Guerra said investors were leery of getting involved because of potential competition from the proposed MGM casino. He also referred to the Plan B Burger Bar that recently opened across the parking lot from his establishment. Mama Iguana’s closed Saturday after more than two years at the site not far from the Basketball Hall of Fame. The Northampton location remains open.
