sweetgreen Debuts Test Kitchen at Dupont Store

From our friends at sweetgreen...

We are excited to announce that sweetgreen—the collection of 27 organic, farm-to-table kitchens—has debuted the “sweetgreen Dupont test kitchen,” where they will be crafting and testing innovative new salads as menu contenders for the other 26 stores (and counting!) The Dupont location, sweetgreen’s recently renovated second store that originally opened in 2009, is ideally suited as a test kitchen with its proximity to the Sunday Dupont Circle farmers market, located just behind the store.

The Dupont kitchen is currently testing three new seasonal salads, which will change five times a year (instead of a rotating monthly seasonal salad), and five new signature salads, featuring house-made dressings such as blue cheese dressing using local cheese from Firefly Farms. For now, these items are exclusive to the Dupont location.
