Fast food without the guilt. When you need a fast meal option at a good price but without the guilt of extra calories and derailing your diet, head to Sweet Green. Great salads, healthy options, and the yogurt is amazing! Finally, a healthy fast food place!
CItysearch Editorial Reivew. Founded by a group of Georgetown University finance-and-marketing graduates in 2007, Sweetgreen serves up a selection of fresh, locally sourced, design-your-own salads. This small green-roof cabin (a historic structure salvaged from a farm in Virginia!) is a popular take-out joint with a bright and healthy feel. Patrons direct members of the staff in preparing a generous salad with chosen greens, vegetables, proteins, “crunches," and homemade dressing. Feeling uncreative? Choose one of the restaurant's signatures--the “Chic P” and the “Guacamole Greens” are the most popular. The whole operation is eco-friendly to the extreme: it uses biodegradable forks and spoons, reusable bags and salad bowls, and menus made from wildflower seeds that you can plant and watch grow.
So Fresh and So Green.
I'm not one to normally crave salad or even order one when I'm eating out, but Sweetgreen is great for when you need something light, healthy, and tasty. They offer an array of salads made in front of you (or you can make up your own combo of ingredients if you want). Their frozen yogurt is nice and tangy and you can get it with a number of toppings, from fruit to coconut to chocolate chips.
There have been times when my salad became a bit wet and soggy due to an excess of dressing and on another occasion the little pieces of pears in my salad were a bit brown (I guess they had been left out too long and started oxidizing). Little things, but if they put you off then just be specific about how much dressing you want or if you don't want a certain ingredient in your salad. But overal, Sweetgreen is great for getting a good bite to eat without feeling too full afterward.
Fresh from the farm. While I go to Sweetgreen for their Fro-yo more often than their salads, everything about this place it great! First off they actually are GREEN - they use local produce, encourage recycling, use recycled utensils, etc! Second, they use what's in season, so the produce rotates (which encourages moi to play around with my usual fro-yo toppings). And finally, they are locally owned (holler DC!)! Try one of their many DC locations, and get your (sweet)green on!
