Sweetgreen will open its 12th location in Boston on Tuesday.

Known for its healthy meals and unique salads, Sweetgreen is headquartered in Los Angeles but operates in 12 states plus Washington, D.C. They serve salads, hot bowls and sides, with some cult favorites like their cashew dressing .

Located in the former SoulCycle space at 300 Cambridge St., Sweetgreen will now bring its fast and casual salads to Beacon Hill.

While the 3,661-square-foot location will seat 23 diners on-site, take-out orders make up the bulk of the chain’s business, especially for office buildings at lunchtime. Sweetgreen has four other locations in the Financial District alone.

The new Beacon Hill location debuts Sweetgreen’s new spring menu, including their Mushroom Chimichurri Bowl, Chimichurri Protein Plate and limited custom bowls created by athletes Naomi Osaka and Devin Booker.

Other favorites on Sweetgreen’s regular menu include Caesar Salad with Kale, Guacamole Sheets, and Harvest Bowl.

Sweetgreen has partnered with an artist from Massachusetts Kristin Texeira for the venue’s interior artwork. With a BFA in Painting from MassArt, Texeira has showcased her colorful and geometric work in other collaborations with brands such as keds.

The restaurant will hold a preview day on May 23 before its grand opening on May 24—RSVP here. On the RSVP link, customers can choose a ticketed option for an in-store preview, or choose to grab a $5 app credit to use during opening week.

For every meal sold on opening day, May 24, Sweetgreen will donate a meal to About Fresh, a local organization that aims to bring healthy, fresh food to the communities that need it most.

Last August, Sweetgreen bought Boston-based catering company Spyce, a fast-casual concept at Downtown Crossing and Harvard Square where robots assembled bowls for customers.

Sweetgreen would be using Spyce’s robotic technology to automate certain parts of its operations, by developing its own robotic kitchen.
