Upscaling continues on Kenmare Street unchecked, from the controversial Nolitan Hotel to Ken & Cook and the Butcher’s Daughter. As such, the demand for retail units along this four-block stretch hasn’t yielded in years. The newest entrant into the increasingly crowded four-block stretch is DC-based health spot, Sweetgreen. The chain-let is on a roll of late, having just secured $18.5 million in venture capital funding.

100 Kenmare Street (aka 400 Broome) is the fourth city outpost for Sweetgreen, bringing with it an alliterative slogan – “Kale on Kenmare.” This new location – under construction the last few months – will boast a large storefront patio with outdoor seating, as well as the usual salad bar, juice, and rice bowl offerings. The whole area is buzzing with activity; it should open any day now. The short-lived plywood shed was removed last week…

Last October, Three holes were punched into the hindquarters of 400 Broome Street to create this additional space. Winick, the self-crowned “retail specialists” spent the last year hawking the property. It was only this past June when they finally netted a taker.
