A T-Shirt for the Ultimate Salad Insider

Chris Black

Sweetgreen is collaborating with Nancy Silverton, the queen of chopped salads, and they’re doing a t-shirt to celebrate.

If you’re reading this, you’re probably a young-ish urban dwelling member of the coastal elite. You know what that means? You eat Sweetgreen a lot. My local location in Manhattan’s Soho neighborhood has become a scene, with the snaking lunchtime line covering all of the downtown bases: cool guys, models, actors, fashion types, PR girls, bozos, lunatics, tech dorks, hippies, rich guys—they can all be found salivating for a Shroomami (my personal favorite) or a Kale Caesar. Sweetgreen is the great equalizer, a meeting place, dare I say… a movement.

So I was very excited to learn that DEERDANA collaborated with the salad emporium on a Nancy Silverton shirt! Sweetgreen is adding Silverton’s famous chopped salad to the menu (she has been making it for like forty years), which is an important step towards educating millennials on what old-money types eat for lunch. If you have taste, you probably own a DEERDANA t-shirt—her clever illustrations have been seen on everyone from Jay Z to Henry Winkler (the range!). If you have taste, you love Nancy Silverton, the co-owner of the legendary Los Angeles restaurant Campanile, La Brea Bakery, and of course Osteria Mozza in Hancock Park, where the infamous chopped salad is served. She is infinitely likable and effortlessly cool. Three things I love: well-priced salads, chic successful women, and…t-shirts!
