Playa Bowls Launches First Location in Center City Philadelphia


Beachy New Eatery Serving up Healthy, Sustainable Eats at 1804 Chestnut Street

June 29, 2020 [Philadelphia, PA] – Playa Bowls, a popular sustainable foodservice establishment along the East Coast, has recently opened its newest location in the Philadelphia CBD. This quick-serve restaurant is bringing environmentally conscious cuisine to returning Center City lunch crowds and Rittenhouse area residents. 

Playa Bowls provides healthy, eco-friendly food options to its customers and prides itself on educating its patrons on how to live more sustainably. Its mission to lessen its impact on the environment is also embedded in its menu and operations—its stores are built with 100% LED technology and 50% reclaimed or refurbished materials while its menu items are served using plant-based tableware.  

Health-conscious foodies can get acai bowls, pitaya bowls, smoothies, soups, salads, and superfruits galore in store at the new location at 1804 Chestnut Street – joining an established row for foodies neighboring Saxby’s, DiBruno’s, the Continental and Sweetgreen.
Those not ready to make the leap to in-restaurant dining can still get their fix through the location’s listing on popular delivery services GrubHub and Uber Eats
