Sweetgreen Nomad is set to open today! The DC-area favorite has set up just north of Madison Square Park at 1164 Broadway (between 27th and 28th Street). Sweetgreen features farm to table salads, wraps, frozen yogurt and pressed juice. As Yelper Cliff W put it, “this is Chopt’s older, cooler, and much hotter sister.”
It’s worth checking out their website and the July menu (http://sweetgreen.com/menu/?region=new-york) to get an idea of what they are about. They have an assortment of specialty salads/wraps, but you can also of course make your own. They also have a popular frozen yogurt that people seem to go there in pursuit of. The July featured salad is “organic baby spinach + shredded kale with local roasted veggies (zucchini, yellow squash, corn), radishes, shaved parmesan, organic basil, organic carrots, roasted chicken, parmesan crisp, pesto vinaigrette”. This month they also feature a blueberry basil lemonade and fresh gazpacho.
What’s nice about the location is that we really do not have a fresh salad place north of 23rd Street. It’s also along a stretch of Broadway with great lunch options such as No. 7 Sub, the upcoming Num Pang, and Hill Country Chicken. The first Sweetgreen opened in Georgetown in 2007.
We have not tried it yet but will report back with a review when we do!
