A return to no-money-down mortgages?

The popular Vila Mexico Cafe at the Grampy’s Gas Station on Beacon Hill recently closed and was supposed to reopen across the road on Cambridge Street, between the Liberty Hotel and MGH. But it’s recently opened a “pop up” restaurant on Medford Street in Somerville. No word about opening a permanent site on Cambridge Street.
