Boston’s train travelers will soon have a new quick dining option at South Station. Pret a Manger will open its seventh metro location in a vacant stall that once was home to the grilled cheese restaurant Cheeseboy, according to a tweet from Adam Castiglioni, who runs the Boston Hospitality Industry blog.
Pret, which is based in the UK, has four locations in downtown Boston, one in Back Bay, and one in the Longwood Medical area. Its new South Station location is currently shielded from view, with signs indicating that the restaurant is opening soon. Pret a Manger is known for serving a broad range of cafe fare, including salads, soups, wraps, sandwiches on bread and baguettes, mac and cheese, and more. Pret’s Boston-area locations are open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
The South Station stall has been vacant since Cheeseboy closed in early November. Eater has reached out for more details on an exact date for Pret a Manger and will share any information when it is made available.
