Sweetgreen salad shop to open in New York this summer

Washington D.C.’s farm-to-table salad shop, Sweetgreen, is headed to Manhattan’s NoMad Hotel this summer, where it will serve as a quick and penny-saving foil to Daniel Humm’s fine dining experiences.

The environmentally-friendly joint, founded by Georgetown University students in 2007, has 16 locations in the DC area, all designed with reclaimed materials.

Its menu is all about fresh, organic produce sourced from local farms. And the focus is on salads, like the District Cobb, a souped-up version of the classic that includes kale, romaine, roasted chicken, and other Cobb staples tossed in an agave Dijon vinaigrette.

The menu also includes cold-pressed juices (woot woot), seasonal soups, and frozen yogurt. And prices are modest with salads starting at about $8 at the DC locations.  —Amy Eley
