Nathaniel Ru, Jonathan Neman, and Nick Jammet (all “green” 22 year old recent Georgetown grads and creators of the new DC Sweetgreen restaurant) celebrated the opening of their take-out salad restaurant in Georgetown Friday night.
Green – organic – is the new black…and this salad shop is already taking off in a big way! So many attended the opening that the party had to be held in an adjacent vacant warehouse with small groups escorted over to the “standing room only” shop to sample the greens and yogurt inspired by L.A.’s Pinkberry.
The grab-n-go greens, touted as the “Chipotle
of salad bars,” could turn into the newest franchise in the District. The guys hope to sprout shops on the George Washington
campus, Dupont, and Bethesda should the Georgetown store stay in the “green”.
Sweetgreen is located at 3333 M Street (corner of M and Bank).
