Quality and Craveability Like You’ve Never Tasted

Fresh out of the Sweetgreen kitchen, guests can enjoy tender, juicy steak by beefing up their order with the new Caramelized Garlic Steak protein option. Featuring cuts of grass-fed, grass-finished tri-tip sirloin steak with a natural tenderness, the new protein provides a delicious complement to Sweetgreen’s beloved salads, warm bowls and protein plates. Sweetgreen’s house-crafted recipe, created by a Michelin-trained fine-dining chef, is expertly finished with a blend of slow-roasted caramelized garlic and onions, creating a mouth-watering flavor that hits all the right notes.

“Sweetgreen is known for combining simple, well-sourced ingredients with in-house culinary skill to bring our guests the best tasting food,” said chef Chad Brauze, Head of Culinary. “The key ingredient in our test menu is the premium, super-tender tri-tip steak that we toss with perfectly caramelized, house-roasted garlic and onions. Our new Caramelized Garlic Steak will take any of our plates, bowls, and salads to the next level.”

Classic Steakhouse Flavors, Bold New Dishes

Along with the option to add the new protein to guests’ favorite bowl or plate, the test menu explores a lineup of three entrées inspired by timeless and nostalgic flavors found at the lunch and dinner table. The limited edition menu featuring the new Caramelized Galic Steak includes:

  • The Kale Caesar (Steak) salad stars Sweetgreen’s beloved Caesar dressing with kale, romaine, crunchy parmesan crisps and a hint of zesty lemon.
  • The Steakhouse Chopped warm bowl is a protein-rich combination of warm quinoa, crispy onions, blue cheese and signature Green Goddess Ranch dressing.
  • The Caramelized Garlic Steak protein plate is a hearty and satisfying dish with wild rice, roasted sweet potatoes, spicy broccoli and arugula, and balsamic vinaigrette.

“Our commitment to craveability is all about testing new and exciting menu items with our fans,” shares Nicolas Jammet, Co-Founder and Chief Concept Officer. “Caramelized Garlic Steak delivers everything our guests love about Sweetgreen—high-quality ingredients with delicious and satisfying flavors.”

The steak test comes on the heels of Sweetgreen’s recent announcement of switching to extra virgin olive oil and avocado oil as its exclusive oils for all cooked proteins, grains and veggies. The announcement reflects Sweetgreen’s longstanding commitment to making high-quality ingredients convenient and accessible to its loyal customers.
