Rosemary Square will welcome yet another healthy eats restaurant this fall, adding to its recent crop of veggie-loving eateries.
Sweetgreen, a national fast-casual salad chain with a cult following, is expected to open at the downtown West Palm Beach plaza sometime in November, according to a restaurant publicist. The 60-seat, seasonally inspired restaurant will offer indoor and outdoor dining areas.
With Georgetown roots and its headquarters in the Los Angeles area, Sweetgreen aims to be the “Starbucks of salad,” as co-founder Nathaniel Ru has put it. The 14-year-old brand has grown to include more than 130 locations, including three in Miami.
Across from True Food Kitchen
The upcoming West Palm location will slip into the space between the Tommy Bahama and Casper stores, just across the street from True Food Kitchen, the most recent health-minded restaurant to debut at the renovated plaza. Other recent healthy spots at Rosemary Square include Planta and Pura Vida.
“Since its debut in Miami last year, Sweetgreen has been thinking about how it will continue to bring fresh, healthy food to communities throughout South Florida, and downtown West Palm Beach felt like the perfect location to call its next home,” said restaurant publicist Jess Davis in an email.
The advance team has hit the ground running, she said.
“The team has been immersing themselves in the community — meeting local suppliers, connecting with local businesses, and learning more about the local culture,” Davis said.
On the Sweetgreen menu
Diners can expect a variety of meals in bowl form, from composed salads to warm bowls. Some locally inspired bowls are offered at some Sweetgreen locations, including Miami. Exclusive to Miami right now is Sweetgreen’s Tropical Starfruit Bowl ($13.95), a salad that combines starfruit, roast chicken, tomatoes, basil, shredded cabbage, arugula, shredded kale, crispy rice, goat cheese and a pesto vinaigrette.
Other Sweetgreen salad options include a kale Caesar, a Buffalo chicken bowl and a Super Green Goddess salad that boasts lentils, chickpeas, roasted sweet potato, raw beets, shredded cabbage and other toppings. (Presently in Miami, salads are priced from $9.95 to $13.95.)
Warm bowls include a pesto protein bowl, a chicken tostada bowl, a harvest veggie bowl and a citrus shrimp and avocado bowl. (Miami’s current prices for warm bowls start at $11.95 and range to $14.45.)
Sweetgreen’s menu also offers a build-your-own bowl option.
