Sweetgreen is a pretty unique restaurant, even in an era of farm-to-table eateries and popular gastronomy. This cafe-style eatery not only sources its all-organic ingredients through local farmers, it also attempts to build meaningful relationships with customers who regularly dine here. As the restaurant itself says, Sweetgreen is a place “where passion and purpose come together.”
The menu at Sweetgreen’s Foggy Bottom location is seasonal, so it changes throughout the year, but you’re always likely to find a variety of healthy, veggie-centric items. If you visit for lunch, consider a winter greens salad, with mesclun, chopped romaine, roasted Brussels sprouts, and sweet potatoes topped with a cranberry vinaigrette and roasted turkey slices. If you’re looking for something heartier, try one of the grain-based bowls, and pair it with a bowl of creamy butternut squash soup. Wash it down with a glass of cranberry-pear fresca, made in house.
Located just moments from Residences on the Avenue, Sweetgreen is open 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.
