Openings: Sweetgreen, Granville Moore's

Now open in Georgetown, Sweetgreen (3333 M St. NW) offers "chef crafted" salads like the Chic P (paprika roasted chicken with mesclun, baby spinach, chickpeas, garlic pita chips and hummus lemon tahini dressing) and Le Parisien (arugula with roasted turkey, brie, grape tomatoes, pears, toasted almonds and Champagne vinaigrette).

Patrons can also create a custom salad from a long list of toppings that include artichoke hearts, curried chicken and wasabi peas. The shop's frozen, all natural Sweetflow yogurt sounds delicious, with mix-ins like blackberries, mango and Kix (yes, as in the cereal). Check out this Washingtonian Best Bites post for some background on the four recent Georgetown grads behind the fresh concept.

Across town, the rapidly growing nightlife scene marches forward on H Street Northeast with the Friday soft opening of Dr. Granville Moore's Brickyard (1238 H St. NE). More than 50 Belgian beers will be a big draw, along with a menu of mussels and fries.
