D.C. salad colossus Sweetgreen will be opening its tenth store in Foggy Bottom on Friday. (Guess the proprietors, Jonathan Neman, Nic Jammet, and Nathaniel Ru, weren’t content with merely being the subject of City Paper‘s recent cover story.) But the leafy greens giant isn’t the only new kid on this $175 million development block. Whole Foods, Circa at Foggy Bottom, Roti, Devon & Blakely, District Commons and Burger, Tap & Shake are all slated to shack up in the building, as well.
Sweetgreen will be among the early openers in the new development, located adjacent to George Washington University. And for this momentous occasion, organizers have promised food, music, and a free lunch for the first 200 guests.
