I stumbled across Sweetgreen on Instagram a few weeks ago and immediately wanted to try it. Trip and I went to their Nomad location for dinner. I really liked the aesthetic, the friendly staff and most importantly the tasty greens.
Since I’m a lover of all things chickpea, I obviously ordered their chick p salad. You can’t go wrong with a toss of organic mesclun and organic baby spinach with baked falafel (nothing like my falafel adventure), chickpeas, cucumbers, green and red peppers and pita chips and topped with a lemon tahini dressing.
Trip tried their seasonal September salad with organic arugula and shredded kale with local watermelon, heirloom tomatoes, cucumbers, organic mint, local feta, spicy sunflower seeds and champagne vinaigrette.
They were both delicious and filling which helped justify the cost. A $10 salad, but hey, this is New York, right? I’ll definitely be back. Hopefully soon they will have their sweetflow frozen yogurt in NY like they offer at their DC, MD, VA and Philly locations.
