Tender Greens to open WeHo outpost this month

March 10, 2009 | 12:10 pm


Tender Greens, the fast-casual restaurant already popular with Culver City office workers and residents, is hot for West Hollywood.

The latest addition to the growing chain may debut in WeHo as soon as Monday (if all goes well with inspections), reps for the eatery said today.  Those who use Twitter might want to "follow" the restaurant here to get up-to-the-minute news regarding when Tender Greens WeHo officially swings open its doors for the first time.  Their Twitter page already gave followers a sneak peek of the interior earlier this month.

The Santa Monica Blvd. location, inside the Hancock Lofts at Hancock Avenue, marks the third Tender Greens location (an additional location is in San Diego).   According to a news release, the forthcoming West Hollywood restaurant will feature "eco-friendly design consisting of reclaimed and recycled materials used in the restaurant’s chairs, tables and other surfaces."

Expect the menu to carry the same dishes served up to hundreds daily in Culver City and San Diego, such as their “Big Salads” (using fresh locally grown produce) and the well-liked $4 soups (chicken soup with lemon thyme, anyone?).

Tender Greens, 8759 Santa Monica Blvd., West Hollywood.  (310) 358-1919.
