A restaurant called b.good will open its first Charlotte restaurant uptown at 400 S. Tryon, the 33-story office tower that’s in the midst of major renovations.

Property records show b.good will be in the uptown building, though the exact size of the restaurant wasn’t immediately clear. It’ll be in the retail space at Martin Luther King Boulevard and Church Street, facing Romare Bearden Park and next to Rhino Market’s second location.

b.good’s menu consists of items sourced from local farms, including house-ground burgers, kale and grain bowls, sweet potato fries, all-natural shakes and seasonal salads, according to its website.

The restaurant chain operates two locations in Raleigh. B.good, based in Boston, was started in 2004 by longtime friends Jon Olinto and Anthony Ackil.

The uptown Charlotte building is owned by a joint venture between Trinity Capital Advisors and DRA Advisors LLC. The retail space was marketed by Legacy Real Estate Advisors.
