A New York-based fast-casual chain focused on seasonal and sustainable ingredients opens its newest Boston location next week. Dig Inn debuts its Seaport District restaurant (25 Thompson Pl.) on Wednesday, June 12, and the restaurant will offer a selection of free veggies from its farm in Chester, New York, for the first 100 customers.
Dig Inn already operates three restaurants in Boston: two in Back Bay at 557 Boylston St. and 800 Boylston St. (the Prudential Center) and a third in Downtown Crossing at 277 Washington St. The Thompson Place restaurant will open serving Dig Inn’s spring menu, operating from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. seven days a week.
Dig Inn’s menu centers around build-your-own “marketbowls,” which start with a base like brown rice or greens and includes assorted “market sides” that rotate with the season, including cauliflower or sweet corn. Customers can also choose from proteins such as meatballs, chicken, tofu, and salmon. There are also various soft drinks and some desserts.
Dig Inn’s Seaport location will join a crowded fast-casual scene catering to the burgeoning area’s growing workforce: Sweetgreen, Chipotle, Shake Shack, and Flour are all steps away, among other dining options.
Update, June 12, 2019: Another new location could be on the way — paperwork filed with the city of Cambridge indicates that the company hopes to open a Dig Inn at 82 Mt. Auburn St. in Harvard Square.
