Previously, Sweetgreen spokesperson said the salad spot is slated to make its way to 90 Hudson Street by spring 2020, however, last week, the company shared with Hoboken Girl that they’d be opening on August 12th.

So, what can salad-lovers expect from Sweetgreen? Well, for starters: a whole lot of greens.

Of course, that’s not to say that Sweetgreen is purely vegetarian or vegan though it certainly is very veggie-friendly. While taking a peek at their current online menu, you’ll find seasonal options such as Chicken + Brussels — a dish of roasted chicken, roasted brussels sprouts, roasted sweet potatoes, apples, raw walnuts, organic mesclun, chopped romaine, and cranberry maple vinaigrette — Winter Squash + Blue Cheese Salad — featuring roasted squash, pears, shredded cabbage, basil, blue cheese, roasted almonds, raisins, shredded kale, organic arugula, and balsamic vinaigrette — Curry Cauliflower — featuring blackened chicken thighs, curry roasted cauliflower, shredded cabbage, cilantro, raisins, warm quinoa, organic arugula, Sweetgreen hot sauce, and cucumber tahini yogurt dressing Spiced Cider Fresca, and Spindrift Cranberry-Raspberry beverages.

The Sweetgreen menu is also made up of other categories like Warm Bowls, Salads, and Make Your Own — a build-it-yourself option in which the guest can pick their base, ingredients, premium ingredients, and of course, dressings. {And in case you’re wondering, the answer is yes — there are gluten-free options.}

While salad options like the Spicy Thai feature tofu, alternatives like the Kale Caesar and Guacamole Greens have roasted chicken. The Hummus + Tahina and Lentil + Avocado salads don’t come with proteins, however, and seem to be made up entirely of veggies.

Beyond Salads

For those who are not salad lovers but want to attempt eating a healthy vegan meal, The Shroomami Bowl is the sole veggie-only bowl on the list, made with organic wild rice, shredded kale, raw beets, cucumbers, basil, spicy sunflower seeds, warm portobello mix, roasted sesame tofu, and miso sesame ginger dressing. The other ‘Warm Bowl’ options include — Chicken Pesto Parm, Harvest Bowl, and Curry Chickpea Bowl — featuring chicken, while the Fish Taco Bowl features roasted steelhead trout. So, basically, options for vegetarians, vegans, pescetarians, and meat-eaters.
