Look Inside Boston’s First Honeygrow
A Philadelphia company debuts its first stir-fry shop in Boston today, though it won’t be the only one. Honeygrow, with nearly 20 locations since it debuted in 2012, is in expansion mode, and is eyeing Back Bay, the Seaport District, and some populous suburbs to continue growing in this area, says chief brand officer Jen Denis.
But today, get your first taste from the Philadelphia-born company with a noodle bowl, like the sesame garlic, with whole wheat noodles, Creekstone Farms beef, mushrooms, broccoli, scallions, and sesame seeds; or the Boston exclusive Maine Lobster, with egg white noodles, the eponymous seafood, lobster-tomato broth, fennel, cherry tomatoes, bell peppers, red onions, peas, and herbed bread crumbs. Honeygrow also offers some rice and grain bowls, and salads, plus the Honeybar, its build-your-own range of fruits, yogurt, toppings like dark chocolate chips, and local honey drizzle for dessert.
The high-tech shop has a few unique features, including a setup of proprietary ordering screens that cut facetime and ensure accurate ordering; as well as a downloadable app for ordering ahead.
On opening day, the first 100 guests get free lunch, with the cost donated to the Boston-headquartered Appalachian Mountain Club. Honeygrow is open daily from 10:30 a.m.-10 p.m.
