Newsflash! The New Sweetgreen Menu Is Here!

Sweetgreen Menu

If you didn’t already know, Sweetgreen has recently introduced some new salads to their menu, including some seasonally inspired creations. Sweetgreen is the only place where, in my opinion, it is justifiable to pay $10 for a salad because they are just so freaking good. Earlier in October, the salad chain introduced three new signature salads, three fall inspired salads and three salads infused with delicious grains. Because of this menu revamp, Sweetgreen did retire some of their signatures, including the District Cobb, the Santorini and the Chic-P. But do not worry, fellow Hoyas, because you’ll be drooling once you hear about these new creations.

The Rad Thai: This salad is made with organic arugula and mesclun, sprouts, shredded cabbage, spicy sunflowers seeds, cucumbers, basil and citrus shrimp drizzled in a spicy cashew dressing. Yeah, seems pretty rad to me.

The Harvest Bowl: This salad incorporates organic wild rice with shredded kale, apples, sweet potatoes, toasted almonds, goat cheese and roasted chicken in a balsamic vinaigrette.  Not only will this salad fill you up, but your taste buds will be in a daze of pure bliss.

The Seasonal Pick: This Turkey Day-inspired salad has organic mesclun, roasted turkey, roasted brussel sprouts and roasted sweet potatoes, covered with a cranberry vinaigrette.  Yes, this could possibly put you in a Thanksgiving-like food coma. You’ve been warned.

Well, now you know what all the commotion is all about. Go ahead and venture away from your “usual” because these new finds are worth trying.

An Open Letter to the Leo’s Pasta Station

Dear Pasta Station at Leo’s,

When I met you during my first week at Georgetown, we hit it off right away. You were so popular and everyone spoke so highly of you, especially in comparison to the other options, and I found you compelling and exciting.

We had some great carb-filled evenings and I truly cherish the time we spent together, but I think it’s time that I move onto something new. The people that work for you get mad at me when I ask for more spinach and I literally have to wait for half an hour in line just to see you every night. I’m just not ready for that kind of commitment. It’s not me, it’s you.

I’ve found someone more accessible and independent who is constantly adapting to meet my needs. Please don’t get jealous, but the Salad Bar and I have been spending more and more time together these past few weeks and I think there’s a real connection there. The roasted red peppers, mint watermelon feta salad, edamame and grilled vegetable couscous are just too hard to resist. I’m sorry I had to tell you this way, but you just weren’t satisfying me the way you used to. I hope we can still be friends.

Sincerely,

Lindsay
