It’s been almost a year since we reported that Simply Salad was opening their second location in the Old Bank District at 4th and Main in the Medallion Apartments. After a few delays, the fast-casual, build-your-own salad shop finally opened this week on Monday, Jan 28, 2013. Apparently, the delays stemmed from unforeseen infrastructure challenges, including the need to install new plumbing, etc. that will now likely benefit other future restaurants opening in the building (like Sushi Zo and Dr. J’s Vibrant Cafe) since the deficiencies are now mostly met.
Simply Salad, according to their site, specializes in “the freshest custom-built signature salads and wraps with over 65 toppings and over 25 salad dressings” as the perfect alternative to “food-coma inducing burgers and burritos.”
The first Simply Salad location opened in 2010 in South Park at the Market Lofts, which did very well serving the large lunch crowd being so close to the Financial District in addition to so many residents living nearby. The new location in the Old Bank District focuses instead on serving more residents than office workers. Hours are currently still in flux as the co-owner, Cameron Lewis, feels out the local demand. Nevertheless, the light-fare eatery is open for dinner with a goal to stay open until 9pm.
