Staycation, day 1 (sweetgreen)

Vacation… What a wonderful word!

My sister and I are both taking time off this week.  And we’re both staying put, so we’ve decided to go out into the city everyday for lunch, and enjoy a food-oriented staycation.

Today, we went to Sweetgreen on Boylston Street.  Even though it was my suggestion, I was very unsure if I was going to like this place.  Sweetgreen, which has other locations in DC, Philadelphia, and NYC, is a salad bar that sources local and organic ingredients.  I love the “local” and “organic” facets, but I freely admit that I’m not a huge salad person.

First impression?  Don’t go between 12p-1p on a work day!  (^_^)

We got there around 12:15p and the line was reaching outside the door.  Luckily, most people were taking their salads back to their offices, and the line moved pretty quickly.  Still, there were probably at least 20 people in front of us.  I went to grab us a table while my sister ordered.  It probably wasn’t a necessary step as even the dine-in customers moved in and out pretty quickly.

Although I don’t have a photo of it, there’s a chalkboard on the far end of the restaurant that lists where some of their items are sourced from.  It’s kind of cool.
