You could stand on a corner and look around until a restaurant sign draws you in. But we've got a better idea. Each week, Patch picks a great restaurant either in town or nearby that is worth checking out. Here's this week's choice:
SWEETGREEN — It's still cold outside, but a Sweetgreen salad can transport you to a more exotic locale. Try the "Bondi," tossed with a miso vinegarette, avocado and hearts of palm. Or the "Curry Gold," with dried cranberries, beets and a curried pineapple yogurt dressing.
And the tart frozen yogurt, made with organic New Hampshire-based Stonyfield Farm yogurt, gives Pinkberry a run for its money.
It's open for lunch through the late-night hours, in case you're looking for a healthier alternative to the standard apres-bar burger and fries.
The Georgetown address is 3333 M St. NW. There's also a Sweetgreen at 4075 Wilson Blvd., Arlington, Va.
Open daily for lunch and dinner. Salads range in price, from about $8 to $12, depending on toppings. Check out www.sweetgreen.com for hours and other nearby locations.
