The all-you-can-eat soup and salad restaurant chain Sweet Tomatoes opens April 2 in Old Town Shopping Center, 5500 Greenville (Greenville north of Lovers), right next to our longtime advertiser Another Broken Egg.

If you can’t wait until the “official” opening, you can stop by for a $5-per-person sneak peak (no reservations, all you can eat) from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. and 5-7 p.m. Friday, March 30, and from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday, March 31.

A Sweet Tomatoes spokesman says all proceeds from the March 30-31 event benefit the North Texas Food Bank. The restaurant will typically be open from 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 11 a.m.-11 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 9 a.m.-9 p.m. Sunday.
