Fresh off the opening of the upscale Z’s Fusion restaurant on Market and Fourth Streets, we bring news of another eatery planning to open soon. This time, its Chop Shop Salads on the corner of Market and Fifth Streets. The restaurant is so new, its web site hasn’t even gone live yet. As far as we can tell, the place makes, well, salads.
The Chop Shop will join a slew of other lunch spots that have opened recently downtown. The restaurant takes the place of Roy Steele’s Shoe Repair, which moved around the corner last year to a new shop on Fifth Street. A new store front has been installed and the interior has been gutted. They covered up the windows pretty well, so it’s difficult to see inside, but there’s all sorts of construction going on with a few new walls going up.

I am so excited about this place. My sister (Erin Gulley) is the lead designer on the project. She has given me low down on how it operates and sounds like just the place to go for lunch come spring and summer!!
