Look at Sweetgreen, so crafty with ways to make their product — the lowly salad — one of the most exciting foods money can buy. Besides appealing to youngins with branded store sign verbiage (see: Beyonce and Kanye West references like “hot sauce in my bag, er, bowl” and “I made that peach famous”), they collaborate with big names in food — David Chang (Momofuku), Dan Barber (Blue Hill), Jessica Koslow (Sqirl) — to keep the menu fresh and relevant. It’s a pretty neat business model — even Kendrick Lamar has his own salad: Beets Don’t Kale My Vibe.
And on April 28th, Philly’s own Michael Solomonov will join these celebrity-types with Sweetgreen’s Zahav Bowl.
It’ll only be available for a limited time (through the end of May), but you’ll find it on the menus at all five Sweetgreen locations in Philly. For $9.95, you’ll get a super colorful bowl of hot chickpeas, kale, turmeric roasted cauliflower, roasted chicken, shredded carrots, almonds, hot sauce, topped with fresh dill, mint and lemon-dill-tahini vinaigrette — a topping he calls “as Israel as it gets.”
