Little Beet Brands announced the openings of its plant-inspired restaurant concepts, The Little Beet in Arlington, Virginia, and Little Beet Table in Chevy Chase, Maryland. In an effort to expand across the D.C. area, the company is slated to open The Little Beet at 1100 South Hayes Street on November 14 and Little Beet Table at 5471 Wisconsin Avenue on November 19
“We’re striving to make a wellness lifestyle easier to adopt and maintain by making nutritious and nourishing food accessible to all,” says Becky Mulligan, CEO of Little Beet Brands. “With the D.C. metro area ranked as one of the healthiest cities in America, it’s an obvious choice for us to continue the expansion of our vegetable-forward concepts to the market. We can’t wait for our new neighbors to fall in love with our wholesome ingredients and flavors.”
The Little Beet, a fast-casual restaurant concept, features thoughtfully sourced ingredients like Organic Quinoa, Sesame Avocado, Delicata Squash, Farmed Maine Kelp, Shaved Brussels Sprouts and Beet Falafel. The restaurant will be located in the Pentagon City Mall, a sophisticated shopping mall located just moments from the nation’s capital and conveniently situated on the Washington D.C. metro system.
The company’s full-service dining concept, Little Beet Table, will be located in The Collection at Chevy Chase, a high-end, walkable retail destination. Little Beet Table features dishes like Wild, Alaskan Salmon, Charred Cauliflower, Sheep’s Milk Ricotta and a Crispy Spirulina Rice Bowl. Little Beet Table also offers a vegetable-forward cocktail program that includes drinks made with rhubarb, hibiscus, fennel, kale and beet syrup. Both restaurants will provide healthful, whole food menus with nutrient-rich ingredients that are 100% gluten-free and sourced from trusted farmers and purveyors. Geoff Kornberg, Director of Culinary for The Little Beet and Matt Aita, Director of Culinary for Little Beet Table are joined by Trevor Kunk, who was recently brought in as Director of Culinary Innovation for Little Beet Brands.
“It’s exciting to promote healthier food choices and overall wellness through creative, vegetable driven dishes that are good for you and full of flavor,” says Kunk. “We’re always working to create new and exciting menu items for our guests. Whether you choose to go to our fast-casual concept, The Little Beet, or prefer to dine at our full-service restaurant, Little Beet Table, you’ll notice we are thoughtful and playful while focused on taste and creativity. Our two new locations will provide guests in the D.C. area with a true culinary adventure.”
