California-born and fine-casual pioneer Tender Greens opened its doors in Boston’s Copley Place Wednesday, December 12. This location is serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Steps from the Orange Line, Tender Greens is positioned to be the go-to spot for commuters, shoppers, and local businesses looking for good, whole, real food.
Tender Greens keeps sustainability and community at the core of all the choices it makes. By working with local farmers, Tender Greens is not only able to acquire the freshest ingredients for its food, but is also able to help the local Boston community in the same breath. Thinking “local first” also allows consumers to experience fine-casual dining. This means farm-fresh ingredients, prepared, and cooked by the restaurant’s executive chef Todd Renner, but in a casual atmosphere that won’t cost a fortune.
Beyond its food, sustainability is infused throughout the restaurant; the reclaimed wood for the tables, biodegradable containers, efforts to properly sort through recyclables, and much more. The space also features unique murals by local Boston artist, Mia Cross. The restaurant seats up to 89 people, including both indoor and outdoor patio dining spaces.
“Boston is one of my favorite cities. The site of the American revolution, one of the world's earliest global trading posts, some of the best colleges in the world, and the place where I enjoyed my first lobster roll. I couldn't be more excited to open the next Tender Greens in a place that has such a rich role in history. I'm hopeful that Tender Greens will make an impression on Bostonians. We are on a mission to free people from eating poorly sourced, bad for the environment, and processed ‘food.’ At Tender Greens we actually make food. Join the revolution,” says Denyelle Bruno, CEO of Tender Greens.
