Sweetgreen expanded its New York presence with the opening of a second location in Tribeca this week, and it comes with a bonus feature: outdoor seating.
The DC-based chain has seriously upped the grab-and-go salad ante in terms of quality, nutrition, and flavor. It debuted in New York with a Flatiron location last summer. Tribeca, its second spot in The Big Apple, officially opens Thursday, May 15 (but it’s hosting a “Pay What You Can” day on Wednesday, May 14, from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., with all proceeds benefitting Edible Schoolyard NYC). A Williamsburg outpost will open this fall.
In Tribeca, it built on the neighborhood vibe, with a cozy, corner location adjacent to cobblestones. The shop is much smaller than its uptown spacious sibling, with just a small bar for indoor seating, but a healthy amount of outdoor tables will make it prime lunch space during warmer months. The menu, stocked with as much produce as possible from local farms, is the same.
It’s also positioned itself on what is quickly becoming Tribeca’s wellness corridor, with Flywheel, Tracy Anderson, and Juice Press all less than a block away—so it probably won’t hurt for healthy foot traffic.—Lisa Elaine Held
