There’s nothing wrong with build-your-own salad places, per se. But sometimes you’re just craving something that has a little more substance to it. That’s where Honeygrow is particularly useful. You can still make your own salad here, but at they also have off-menu items at the test kitchen that they don’t at other locations, like a buffalo blue stir fry that you should go out of your way for, even if you live down the street from one of their other locations.
