Sweetgreen, a national chain for buzzy bowls and salads, will open a second Houston location in Montrose in addition to joining Rice Village’s revamped shopping center sometime next year.
The second area Sweetgreen outpost will replace Doc’s Motorworks (which closed last year) at 1303 Westheimer Road, according to sales tax applications filed with the state. D.C.-based Sweetgreen operates outposts in New York, Boston, Philly, Chicago, Los Angeles, and the Bay Area, and this appears to be its first foray into Texas. No word yet on when the chain is set to debut locally.
Sweetgreen has a menu devoted to warm bowls, salads, and seasonal bowl options. Menu offerings its LA stores include a warm chicken pesto parmesan bowl with roasted chicken, spicy broccoli, tomatoes, shaved parmesan, and warm quinoa, finished off with a pesto vinaigrette, which altogether clocks in at only 525 calories. The health-conscious offerings extend throughout the menu to the vegetarian-friendly “Shroomami” warm bowl with organic wild rice, shredded kale, raw beets, cucumbers, and warm portobello mix, finished off with a sesame ginger dressing. Diners can also find salads featuring lentil, avocado, and a plethora of other veggies, or a spicy Thai version with roasted sesame tofu, veggies, and spicy cashew dressing.
