Boloco Davis Square closed - Green Tomatoes 2 taking it's place

As those around Davis Square may have noticed Boloco has already closed their doors. In my opinion they won't be missed as there are better options in the area such as Blue Shirt Cafe. Green Tomatoes 2 will be taking the place of Boloco. I learned this upon getting take out from the Green Tomatoes in Reading last week. I'm looking forward to it as I've consistently enjoyed the food from their Reading location...even though I've gotten mixed reactions from friends I've introduced it too. Complaints being that they are to slow, its to messy(they slice the wraps into many bite(2-3) size pieces), the portions are to big...while others seem to be more in my camp and don't mind waiting 5mins for their wrap to be made or saving leftovers for a second meal. While I think the Reading location thrives mostly on catering and take-out for families I hope they can do well in this younger neighborhood also. The Reading location serves prepared items such as stuffed chicken(or other meats) w/ sides, quiche, chicken/eggplant parmesan etc. They also make wraps and salads. My favorite wrap being the chicken w/ fried eggplant, roasted red peppers, and mesculin lettuce on a wheat wrap with balsamic dressing. In general nothing fancy but I've always thought it to be a good place to go, especially given the limited options in the Reading area. From what one of the employee's told me at the Reading location they will also be serving breakfast at the Davis Sq location. They are supposed to open around August 1st. So if you were wondering what was happening with the Boloco building there u have it...
