if you followed along with this blog of ours when we lived in Washington DC, you’ll remember how much our family enjoyed going to sweetgreen. somewhere between fulfilling my every pregnancy craving while carrying samson (that little dude sure loved his greens in utero), the salad from last july that we’ve made 5 billion times since, and one too many cucumber limemade’s later, we have become big fans. we spent a lot of time there in DC. we got to know the founders, and they even sponsored our blog. we made a fun little video with them last year, too!
so when we moved back to NYC last august, we were pretty bummed to say goodbye to sweetgreen. we started hinting to them how much sweetgreen was needed in new york and they let us know they were already working on it! hooray! so we waited patiently.
people of new york city, the day has come! the first sweetgreen location in nyc officially opens this thursday, the 25th! and we think it’s definitely worth checking out. everything is organic and sourced locally, and you can tell because the food is delicious.
we got to check out the new nomad location and sample the new menu last week. we had a great time seeing the new digs as a family. it’s a beautiful space. we’re so excited to have you here, sweetgreen!
^^^check out this space! welcome, welcome!!!!^^^
^^^josh wants me to tell you that he officially endorses the kale, haha! i don’t even know who this man is anymore, swearing off ice cream for a year (still going strong 6 months in, PS) and now eating kale salads. but i like him.^^^
^^^these lemonades always get me into trouble. when i was in labor at the hospital in DC with samson, there was a sweetgreen around the corner so i kept having josh make trips all day long to keep fresh ice cold lemonades comin’! i think i downed 7 of those cucumber or mint limeades until the nurse told me i wasn’t allowed anymore. ;-) good times…good times…^^^
^^^learning to eat with a fork! but you know, sometimes it’s just easier with your fist.^^^
welcome to new york city, sweetgreen! we’re so glad you’re finally here!
