According to NECN.com, an unnamed business has reached agreement for the Hilltop Steakhouse property and liquor license. Could it be Tuckaway Tavern & Butchery out of Raymond, who have made no secret of their interest in moving to the famous Saugus site

A confidentiality agreement precludes us from knowing much, but one piece of information indicates the buyer is publicly traded company. This doesn't preclude Tuckaway, as they may have partnered with an investor and announced the launch of their new franchise model earlier this week. They also dropped this not so subtle tidbit.

We should know within a week or two, but wouldn't it be great if Tuckaway Tavern could resurrect Hilltop? The sign is ready!
