We received a heads-up this weekend from the good people at Green Tango, alerting us to their business' news that also ran in Saturday's Business Buzz column over at the H-S. The Durham-based salad restaurant will open its third outlet in September over at Pavilion East at Lakeview, the Duke-adjacent mixed-use center with TGI Friday's, Chipotle, and Dunkin' Donuts. (And a Noodles and Company soon to open.)
In the midst of a hegemony of chain restaurants, it's good to see a local business set up just its third location here in the Bull City. (Green Tango also has locations on Shannon Rd. and in Northgate's food court.) If you're not familiar with them, Green Tango provides quick, fresh salads that make a decent lunch stop.
Given the sometimes out-the-door crowds at Chipotle and the massive employee base just a few hundred feet away at the hospitals and Duke's campus, we'd be surprised if this didn't become a very busy outlet for the Green Tango folks indeed.
A late summer/early fall opening is targeted for the latest Green Tango. If you're just wilting at the idea of waiting for more details, check out the Green Tango blog documenting their construction and opening process.
