Announced last summer, Green Grotto Juice Bar officially opened earlier this month inside the beautiful Broadway-Spring Arcade. The 900 square foot space with outdoor patio seating (even though the whole arcade is technically indoor) sits next door to forthcoming British pub Royal Clayton’s and across from already popular eateries Gelateria ULI and Guisados, both added to the arcade in 2014. Green Grotto keeps its menu simple and refreshing. The juice bar offers, what else, but fresh organic juices made-to-order as well as smoothies and acai bowls for health-conscious downtowners. The owner, Keiran Roberts, has made the diminutive space packed with comfort with free WiFi and charging ports for added convenience.
The transformation of the Broadway Spring Arcade is finally picking up steam now! After years of dormancy, it’s finally starting to feel like the historic arcade is speeding up its revitalization process akin to what we’re seeing at the amazing Grand Central Market up the street. Just this week, the much anticipated Guisados tacos shop opened with great reception from the downtown community (aka long lines). And the long-long-stalled Royal Claytons to open across from Guisados will also begin construction soon. Now, a new healthy eatery will be opening this fall called Green Grotto Juice Bar that will begin construction this month in a space directly across from Gelateria ULI. “Coming soon” signs were posted on their windows earlier this week.
