Pret a Manger to Open in Boston's Longwood Area
It looks like a London-based chain of sandwich shops is going to be expanding further into Boston, with a new one being planned for the Longwood Medical area of the city.
According to a Licensing Board page within the City of Boston website, Pret a Manger is looking to open at the Longwood Center at the corner of Brookline Avenue and Longwood Avenue, with the eatery having an indoor dining area on the ground floor of the building as well as a seasonal outdoor patio. Once it opens, the new location of Pret will join others in Boston's Financial District (Arch Street, Federal Street, Franklin Street, and State Street) and in the Back Bay (Boylston Street).
As mentioned earlier, it appears that the Longwood Center will also become home to a new location of b.good as well (that spot hopes to open later this summer).
[September 14 update: Eater Boston mentions that the new Pret a Manger in the Longwood area has its official opening on Friday, September 18, with "Guinea Pig Day" (its soft opening) being on Thursday, September 17.]
The address for this upcoming sandwich shop in the Longwood section of Boston is: Pret a Manger, 354-364 Longwood Avenue, Boston, MA, 02215. The website for the chain can be found at http://www.pret.com/us/
