Sweetgreen Is Opening in Boston's Fort Point Neighborhood

[Ed note: This article was updated on December 10 to reflect confirmation of the restaurant coming to Fort Point, as well as a slight adjustment in its address.]

A chain of "farm-to-table" fast food places that opened its first Boston location over the summer is now looking to open another shop, with this one being in one of the hottest neighborhoods for dining in the city.

The Boston Hospitality and Tourism Industry Blog is reporting (via @FortPointer) that Sweetgreen could be coming to the Fort Point area, possibly opening at the new Marriott Residence Inn on Congress Street. A public hearing PDF page from the City of Boston confirms this, mentioning that a design review hearing for installment of signage, canopies, and louvers in the window openings will be taken up next week.

[December 10 update: Eater Boston mentions that Sweetgreen is indeed going to be opening in Fort Point, though the address is going to be 372 Congress Street, not 370 Congress Street as had been originally thought. This puts it next to the Marriott, not inside the hotel.]

[March 31 update: A new article from Eater Boston states that Sweetgreen will have a soft opening for its new store in Fort Point this Wednesday (April 2), with its official opening being Thursday. (The soft opening will be "pay what you want," with all proceeds going to the Mass. Farmers Markets.)]

The Washington, DC-based Sweetgreen, which first started out in 2007, offers salads, wraps, juices, and frozen yogurt, using locally-sourced and organic ingredients for its food and drink items. The chain opened its first location locally on Boylston Street in the Back Bay in June, and also has locations in Maryland, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Washington, DC.

The address for this new eatery is: Sweetgreen, 372 Congress Street, Boston, MA, 02210. The website for the chain is at http://www.sweetgreen.com/
