The salad restaurant is rolling out a "Plates" menu to offer customers more healthy meal options besides warm and cold salads, including nine different plant and meat proteins and sides.
"We’re continuing to look for ways to evolve our offerings as the needs of our guests change due to the impact of COVID-19," Nicolas Jammet, Sweetgreen co-founder and chief concept officer, said in a statement.
He added that Sweetegreen's aim with its Plates menu "is to help create meaningful connections and good-for-you dining experiences during times where it may seem hard to do so. We hope these new items invoke the warm, comforting feeling of home-cooked food, paired with quality ingredients and rich flavors that are unique to Sweetgreen."
