We’ll get right to it: Sweetgreen is coming to Miami. The fast-casual salad restaurant with 75 locations across the country finally (finally!) decided to bring its genius concept to the 305. The company announced it on its Instagram yesterday, posting an irreverent photo of a head of kale duct-taped to a white wall. It was one of too many parodies to come from Art Basel Miami’s #BananaGate, but we'll let it slide. Not even a played-out Basel joke could dull our excitement.
Sweetgreen—which was launched in Washington, D.C. in 2007 by two Georgetown grads—works directly with farmers to source quality produce for their restaurants. The vast selection of fresh ingredients are partly the reason why a visit to Sweetgreen is so delightful. The other? The staff. You can ask for double this and a drizzle of that or only a sprinkling of this and you won’t get the death stare. We can only hope the same goes for its place here.
In Miami, Sweetgreen is slated to open at the newly renovated CocoWalk (3015 Grand Ave) that’s set to open sometime in the spring of 2020. Sweetgreen joins the shortlist of other popular northeast transplants that have slowly found their way down to Miami, like Shake Shack and Little Beet.
See, Miami, we can have nice things.
