Is Sweetgreen’s Zahav Bowl Worth Trading Your Custom Salad Order in For?

Around 12 p.m. today, like Santa or Oprah, the Sweetgreen gods dropped a gift into my lap just in time for lunch: The new Zahav Bowl, the product of a collaboration with Philly chef Michael Solomonov of restaurant favorites like Zahav (duh), Dizengoff, and more.

The bowl, available at Philly’s Sweetgreen locations through May, debuted today, and I’m not going to lie: I wasn’t particularly excited about. Literally every single ingredient in the salad is an item that, when I am at Sweetgreen crafting my custom salad (soooo, just about every day), I scan over and think to myself HARD pass on that.

YUM: Michael Solomonov Gets His Very Own Sweetgreen Salad

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.

Sweetgreen’s New Winter Menu Launches Today

SweetgreenWinter17

For all of you Sweetgreen junkies out there, I’ve got some news. Today marks the changeover to their East Coast winter menu, which includes a whole bunch of new warm and seasonal bowls, plus a brand new hot sauce for spiking your cold-weather lunch.

Now personally, I don’t understand people who eat salads. The places I hang out, the salad is just what goes next to the food so the tacos, crabcakes, fried chicken or whatever don’t look lonely on the plate. But still, some of these salads and bowls full of quinoa, kale and sweet potatoes sound like they might be kinda good.
