b.good Restaurant Reopens in Bedford Marketplace

b.good restaurant which closed last August as part of the Bedford Marketplace renovation, has reopened in a new building at 158 Great Road. The new restaurant is in a premium corner location with frontage on Great Road.

The new location has two entrances, including this one along Great Road
While the menu has stayed fairly consistent, the number of b.good locations has continued to grow to about 40. The chain has recently expanded to Canada and Switzerland.

The Grand Opening included Free Samples and Giveaways.
The new space is much more modern and includes about 60 seats. Outdoor dining has been expanded as well.

The interior features butcher block tables, lots of windows and high ceilings giving the restaurant an open feel.
As before, the menu focuses on burgers, fries, salads, shakes and vegetables. Most of the food is locally grown. In place of Heinz condiments, b.good features Sir Kensington's Ketchup, Mustard and Mayonnaise. The restaurant is open from 11 am to 9 pm daily except closes at 8 pm on Sundays.

The new outdoor seating area is much larger and no longer adjacent to the parking lot.

The new drink area is larger and has additional selections including four types of Lemonade. 

Most of the menu is sourced from the New England area.

First view of Bedford Marketplace's new "Greenway". Grass and additional landscaping is coming soon.
The new Greenway path uses stones in place of asphalt. 

While most of the Bedford Marketplace has undergone renovation., the current sign has
become ramshackle and is in need of replacement
