The Back Bay A to H: Sweetgreen

When Sweetgreen opened in the Back Bay, my world changed. At the time, it was exactly what I needed. A decent salad place, nestled between my office at the time and my apartment. While their menu does look good, I almost always go custom. I trust the ingredients. Every sweet green I’ve been to has a board listing the sources for the various ingredients. A lot of the time, they’re organic.

Long story short, if you haven’t been to a Sweetgreen, I urge you to check it out. For about $10, you can get one of the best salads in Back Bay. On top of top notch products, they also offer a pretty decent reward program through their app. You can also order online through the app, which can save lots of time, especially if you’re trying to go between the hours of 11:30am and 1:00pm. You can always count on a line.


My go to is: Quinoa, arugula, onions, tomato, carrots, parmesan cheese, parmesan cheese crisps tossed with pesto vinaigrette. I highly recommend.
