Off The Menu: Sweetgreen to Open in SoMa


Hey San Franciscans, get ready to taste the season! This goes above and beyond your basic fall P.S.L. A new seasonal restaurant is coming to SoMa this week, called Sweetgreen. Write that down and get ready to bookmark it on Yelp. This place is going to bowl your mind – excuse the bad pun.

On a serious note, Sweetgreen is all about locally grown seasonal foods. Whether you order a Guacamole Greens salad bowl (an order which has a fan club all its own) or a Curry Cauliflower bowl, you can bet that the ingredients you devour will be prepared in-house from scratch every morning using ingredients grown by local farmers. For you to get a taste of the season, they have a section of the menu for seasonal bowls, which feature the best in-season fruits and vegetables. They also have warm bowls and salad bowls and customizable bowls, oh my! If you’re the type of person that gets overwhelmed by options, not to fear. Rumor has it, Sweetgreen’s cult-like following has the Kale Caesar and Rad Thai at the top of their list. No matter what you order - best to expect great flavors, fresh ingredients, and a behind the scenes team committed to providing you healthier, convenient, and delicious dining.


The overall goal? To build a healthier, locally-driven community. How are they doing this? Not only by using locally grown ingredients, but also by donating 100% of their opening day sales to CUESA, in support of beginning farmers. Proceeds are for plans to establish a pop-up for up-coming farmers at the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market.

// Go support Sweetgreen and your local SF bay farmers on Tuesday, October 11th! This SoMa location can be found at 171 2nd St.
