SweetGreen Opens Tomorrow



The latest entry into the Logan dining scene opens tomorrow. SweetGreen, the DC-based salad and frozen yogurt shop, will be open for business as of noon tomorrow at their new P Street location, located across from Whole Foods in the Metropole building.

SweetGreen's menu consists of a variety of gourmet salads, such as "the bondi" (arugula with chicken, avocado, sweet corn, hearts of palm and wasabi peas) and "la scala" (romaine, salami, mozzarella, chick peas, grape tomatoes and chopped basil). The frozen yogurt comes in one flavor--tart--and can be dressed up with any number of combinations of fruit and other toppings. The Logan location is their fourth; other locations are in Georgetown, Bethesda and Dupont.



It will be interesting to see whether SweetGreen will be able to carve out a niche for themselves in their new location. With Pitango Gelato right next door, it's questionable how much P Street needed a fro-yo place, and the presence of Whole Foods and their salad bar presents options for diners looking to pick up some greenery. But SweetGreen's salads have drawn rave reviews, and the prospects of being able to get a healthy dinner option that doesn't involve fighting the masses at Whole Foods is indeed enticing.

Curious to find out for yourself? Stop by starting tomorrow and see what you think.

I eat at SweetGreen here in Georgetown at least once a week: amazing salads -great quality. It beats the whole foods salad bar by far. My favorite is the scala salad -try it with arugala instead of the bland green leaves it comes with.

I question whether P Street really needs a Sweet Green. The number o banks on that street is also a little boring.

I went to check it out for dinner last night, and it was closed at 8pm. No hours on the door. Just says it opens at noon.

I am so excited about the Logan / U Street area having a salad and wrap place. Stopped in today and even though I wasn't eating everything looks so fresh. Really excited they offer in season veggies that change on a regular basis.

this blog is so bourgeois.

"fighting the masses" => dealing with the riff-raff of the neighborhood.

LOL @ convexhull

Only if you consider the throngs of NW DC yuppies who descend upon the Whole Foods every night to be "riff-raff". Otherwise, you're straining to find something that isn't there.

i walked past thaitanic on 14th street (the one between N and Rhode Island, not the one in Columbia Heights where my friend found an 1 1/2 inch metal screw in his food) and saw a notice for a major change: They want to expand upstairs to add capacity for 100 additional people and extend their hours. More people and more drunks in our already gentrifying 'hood. ugh!
