Sweetgreen is a chain that’s quickly succeeding in its mission to sell you a salad no matter what part of town you’re in. But we have to say, they’re really good salads. The Culver City location is in Platform and is labeled as The Lab, which just seems to mean you can try out their new ideas for bowls of green things. We end up at Sweetgreen when we want something healthy but also don’t want to have to think about what to eat, and we never regret it.
