Veggie Grill to Open in Cambridge's Harvard Square

by Marc Hurwitz

It looks like a California-based vegan restaurant chain is opening its first location on the East Coast, and it will be located right in the heart of Cambridge.

According to a poster on the Friends of Boston's Hidden Restaurants Facebook group page, Veggie Grill is planning to open this fall in Harvard Square, moving into a space within the Crimson Galeria on JFK Street. Once it opens, expect such items as a taco salad, avocado toast, black bean soup, veggie burgers, a masala bowl, Korean tacos, crispy cauliflower, nachos, and roasted yams.

Veggie Grill debuted in Irvine, CA, in 2006 and is now headquartered in Santa Monica; the chain currently has approximately 30 locations, mostly on the west coast.

The address for this upcoming dining spot in Harvard Square is: Veggie Grill, 57 JFK Street, Cambridge, MA, 02138. The website for the chain can be found at

[February 28, 2019 update: According to a source, a sign is now up in the window of the Harvard Square space showing that the Veggie Grill is on the way, while the locations page for the chain indicates that the new outlet plans to open this summer.]
