Talk about good-for-you. Since opening two years ago in the Georgetown neighborhood of Washington, D.C., Sweetgreen has been offering customers all-natural salads and frozen yogurts in biodegradable packaging—inside a small space powered by wind. Additional locations bowed this past spring in Dupont Circle and suburban Bethesda, Maryland. All three feature paneling and custom furniture made from reclaimed wood, some of it re-purposed from bowling alleys. The cafés are the work of Core Architecture + Design, which had previoulsy completed the interior of Founding Farmers, a notable LEED Gold—certified restaurant in the capital. All three feature paneling and custom furniture by Counter Evolution NYC made from reclaimed wood, some of it re-purposed from bowling alleys.
