Sweetgreen Is Opening in Boston's Back Bay
A chain of "farm-to-table" fast food places that is based in Washington, DC, is on its way to Boston.
The Eater Boston site reports that Sweetgreen is going to be opening in Boston, with the article mentioning that Craigslist recently had a job posting for the eatery, which focuses on salads and frozen yogurt, but neither a location nor and opening date were given for the place.
[October 29 update: An article in the Boston Magazine Chowder blog indicates that Sweetgreen will be opening at 659 Boylston Street in the Back Bay, taking over the former Ritz Camera space. It looks like the new spot could be opening sometime in the spring of 2013.]
[June 20, 2013 update: The Restaurant Hub blog of The Boston Globe is reporting that Sweetgreen will open in the Back Bay on June 26. The article also says that customers can pay what they want on opening day, with all proceeds going to One Fund Boston.]
[June 26, 2013 update: A Twitter post from Sweetgreen indicates that the new shop in the Back Bay is open today from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM.]
Sweetgreen started out in Washington in 2007 and currently has several locations in DC, as well as a handful in Maryland, Virginia, and Pennsylvania. The website for the chain can be found at http://www.sweetgreen.com/
