Now Open: Sweetgreen offers new salad options in Rice Village
The salad chain Sweetgreen opened its first Houston location at 2551 Amherst St., in the Rice Village, on July 23. The restaurant, one of almost 100 locations nationwide, is the first in Texas as well, with menu items drawing on locally sourced ingredients. Sweetgreen will donate 100% of opening day proceeds to Urban Harvest to support Double Up Houston, a program that helps food-insecure families buy more produce at local farmers markets. 832-720-7500. www.sweetgreen.com
