b.good to Open in Newton; Waterfront and Longwood Medical Area Locations Also in the Works

A small local chain of restaurants that features "real" fast food continues to grow larger, with a new location getting ready to open west of Boston and two others possibly opening within the city itself.

The Boston Business Journal mentions that b.good is going to be opening a new shop on Needham Street in Newton and is also working on leases for locations along the South Boston Waterfront as well as somewhere in the Longwood Medical Area near the Brookline border. Once the Newton location opens--and assuming the two proposed Boston locations do--they will join a number of other shops in the area, including in Boston's Financial District, Downtown Crossing, the Back Bay (three), Harvard Square in Cambridge, Bedford, Burlington, Dedham, and Hingham.

[February 5, 2015 update: Eater Boston states that the Newton location of b.good is opening tomorrow, and its exact address is 71 Needham Street.]

The BBJ also says that the b.good chain has been shifting its focus from being seen mainly as a burger spot to one that offers a variety of healthy items (though burgers, fries, and shakes are still on the menu).

The website for the b.good chain is at:
