Earlier today, we reported that a new everbowl restaurant is coming to Iowa City. The healthy eatery will be opening at 312 S Madison Street across from the Campus Recreation and Wellness Center sometime within the next 90 days. But, everbowl is only one of the new restaurants headed to Johnson County in 2023!
