Sweetgreen is Opening in Jersey City — Its 1st New Jersey Location

Written by:

Jersey City is about to get a whole lot greener! Famed salad chain Sweetgreen recently announced that it’s making a new home at 90 Hudson Street in Jersey City its first-ever venture into the State of New Jersey.

Sweetgreen is a super popular salad chain in Manhattan, with multiple locations throughout the city, so it’s no wonder that the salad company decided to grow roots here across the Hudson River. Though it’s originally from Washington, D.C., Sweetgreen has locations nationwide throughout Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, Washington, D.C., and of course, New York and Cali.

According to Jersey Digs, Sweetgreen spokesperson Maude Michel said Sweetgreen is slated to make its way to 90 Hudson Street by Spring 2020. However, no official timeline has been released.

So, what can salad-lovers expect from Sweetgreen? Well, for starters: a whole lot of greens. After all, it’s in the name!

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 myriad 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.

And that’s just the seasonal menu. 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.

Then, there are the Warm Bowls. The Shroomami 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 — Chicken Pesto Parm, Harvest Bowl, and Curry Chickpea Bowl — feature chicken, while the Fish Taco features roasted steelhead trout. So, basically, options for vegetarians, vegans, pescetarians, and meat-eaters.
