“Sweetgreen is opening a restaurant this week in Lincoln Park.
“The Sweetgreen opens Tuesday at Lincoln Common, 2361 N. Lincoln Ave., Suite A1-110.
“The 2,769-square-foot space is a former 1930s boiler house that was rehabilitated and renovated to keep its industrial-era elements, such as exposed brick, beams and piping, according to Sweetgreen.
“The dining area features a double-height ceiling, handmade tiles and custom millwork, company leaders said. It has room for 26 diners. (Wittich, Block Club Chicago, 10/31/22)
