Beware of the Salad

Eating healthy can be one of the biggest social exclusions. When you are determined to eat well but have friends who scarf down pizza by the minute, it’s hard to finish a bowl of greens in front of them. Lucky for us, Georgetown’s culture is slightly anomalous — we love[Read More…]

The much-anticipated salad restaurant, Hilltoss, is gearing up for its grand opening. Preview tastings suggest that The Corp is turning out fresh salads that satisfy in a convenient location.

Corp’s Salad Venture Satisfies With Healthy Options

★★★☆☆ $ The Corp’s latest venture, Hilltoss, is by no means a new concept at Georgetown — Hoyas already frequent Salad Creations and Sweetgreen for their made-on-the-spot salads.

Now It’s Just a Salad That I Used to Know

Full disclosure: I love Sweetgreen. When I lived in LXR my sophomore year, I got a salad from the M Street staple at least once a week. (For the record, the March salad was my favorite salad of the month; I indulged in “Pickle Madness” at least seven times in four weeks.) In[Read More…]
