H-S: Walltown rec center creeps forward
Free gas Thursday -- we'd suggest a car that's armored

Green Tango set to add third Durham location off Erwin Rd.

Greentango_2 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.

I've had salads 2 or 3 times at Green Tango at the food court at Northgate Mall and I have to say they make very yummy salads.

You watch them while they are making the salad for you so you know exactly how it's being put together.

Glad to hear they are doing well and expanding.


Boy, it seems like one of these, and one of those Noodles and Company establishments would be a perfect fit for downtown Durham. You could grab a bite to eat and sit out on the See Say Be plaza or the Five Points park and enjoy the beautiful spring weather while you eat your lunch.

and maybe a pizzeria where you could walk up to the window on the street and order a slice and a coke.

oh, who am i kidding.
