A Washington, DC-based salad chain will round out its planned growth in the Boston area tomorrow when it officially opens a location in Cambridge. Sweetgreen unveils its newest restaurant at 39 JFK St. in Harvard Square Tuesday, November 15, showering the neighborhood in salads and seasonal ingredients.
Sweetgreen first expanded to Boston in 2013, and tomorrow’s opening brings the grand total of Massachusetts locations up to 10. The Harvard Square restaurant is the final piece of a planned expansion that kicked into gear earlier this year and resulted in five new Sweetgreens for the city — two in Downtown Crossing, one each in Fenway and the South End, and now, finally, Cambridge .
The new Harvard Square salad spot held a handful of sneak preview days leading up to tomorrow’s opening, bringing in guests for a taste of the salad-centric menu. Sweetgreen has made a name for itself tying regional menus to produce that’s seasonally available, offering scratch-made sauces and more, and focusing on sustainability.
