Across from Sweet Green (which I also like) is IMO an even better salad place called Organic To Go. It has only been there for about 2 weeks and they are having some minor kinks (running out of ingredients, cash register not working, pizza chef walking out in a huff ) BUT they could not be nicer and eager to please- For example, when they ran out of beets for my freshly prepared salad, at my request, they opened a pre-packaged salad to use those beets, and when my calzone was slow to arrive they gave me a complimentary cupcake. My recommendations so far are the Lyon salad (arugula, blue cheese, walnuts, almonds, beets, thinly sliced green apples- and I have them add delicious strips of chicken.) The calzone (perfect size) w/ fontina cheese, tons of portobello mushrooms, spinach replaced because they were out of potatoes w/ dipping sauce (marinara or pesto) was excellent. The dough was thin and crispy. What I like better about the salads at this place is they prepare the ingredients in front of you- For example, slice the apples when ordered as opposed to having apples sitting there waiting for you to order.
I cannot wait for Georgetown Cupcake to move in next door in the Fall!
