LA-Based Health Chain ‘Tender Greens’ Comes to NoHo

Posted on: March 12th, 2019 at 5:00 am by

More west coast vibes are coming soon to NoHo. Tender Greens, the fast-casual health spot with minority backing from Danny Meyer, is angling for the northwest corner of Bleecker and Lafayette Streets. 

The business appears on the Community Board 2 docket this month for beer-wine license consideration. And with it, 59 Bleecker is fast becoming stocked with trendy businesses in the wake of its multimillion-dollar restoration. As first reported here, Levain Bakery and Core Power Yoga also signed leases in the one-story wraparound property. (No return of a hardware store, alas.)

The Gold Coast needs its fuel, after all. 

Tender Greens is equally homogenous as Dig Inn, Sweetgreen, or Just Salad. There are more than two dozen national outposts, the majority of which are headquartered in California. This spot on Lafayette Street would be the second in the city, and first below 14th Street.
