b.good Opens! | Garden City
B.good touts its sustainable bona fides, calling itself a “farm-to-table restaurant chain recognized for fresh food made by hand and sourced from local suppliers.” The Garden City location uses potatoes from Sidor Farms in Mattituck; other named suppliers are in the Hudson Valley or South Jersey. According to co-founder Anthony Ackil, dressings and other menu elements are either prepared in the individual stores, or in the company commissary in Maldon, Massachusetts, and then shipped through the national food-service distributor U.S. Foods.
In 13 years, the Boston-based chain has grown to 60 locations throughout the Northeast and mid-Atlantic. Anthony Ackil said that the company was planning to open four more Long Island stores in Woodbury, Lake Grove, Farmingdale and Commack.
