Just as every week last year brought word of a new froyo shop opening up, it's all about the juice this year. The latest announcement: Juice Press. The growing five-year-old chain has more than 20 New York locations and one in Greenwich, Connecticut, and the first Boston-area shop is slated to open this summer at The Street in Chestnut Hill (33 Boylston St.) In addition to a range of juices and smoothies, Juice Press also serves soups, salads, and raw foods.
According to a press release, Juice Press will occupy 3,100 square feet of space, offering some room for customers to sit down and drink juices like the "Mother F&*%in' Fireball," which combines two of the chain's most popular juices, "Mother Earth" and "Ginger Fireball," to result in a combination of cucumber, celery, swiss chard, kale, dandelion, parsley, orange, ginger, lemon, cayenne, and oil of oregano. On the less liquid side, there are raw dishes like acai bowls, hummus wraps, kelp and noodle salads, coconut ceviche, and avocado toast.
Meanwhile, Liquiteria is also in the process of expanding here from New York, starting with a Harvard Square location; Squeeze has three or four locations on the way in the coming year, starting with South Station; Revolution Juice is opening any day now in Back Bay; and Pressed opened in Beacon Hill last month, to name just the most recent developments.
