Tender Greens last week opened a new flagship location in Century City, Calif., debuting a fresh restaurant prototype for the 25-unit emerging chain. Read on to see more.
The new unit design is aimed to maximize speed and hospitality for in-restaurant and takeout orders, as well as to facilitate app ordering, the chain says.
The location offers chefs’ specials that rotate twice daily, including a housemade pasta on Wednesday nights. Most menu items fall within the $12 to $15 range.
Housemade sodas, agua frescas, mint lemonade and green juice are on offer, along with wine and craft beer.
The unit’s dining room is 3,000 square feet and provides seating for 36.
Health authorities say an investigation of the situation is continuing.
The Bottom Line: Overexpansion, marketing problems and intense competition have hurt the chain's sales. But it can recover.
When the happy talk is all about taxes, you know this was a good spell for restaurants. Also on the plus side: a cover-up for breastaurants, a lovefest for the big burger chains and bitcoins make an inroad.
