After these tastes, we were happy to hear that Chop’t has three more Washington-area locations in the works. According to Ron Boatright, the company’s Mid-Atlantic director, the next to open (in early January) will be in downtown DC at 1300 Connecticut Avenue. Another is slated for mid-February at 1735 Lynn Street in Rosslyn. No opening date has been set yet for the fourth location, at 1105 19th Street, Northwest, but the Chop’t team is aiming for early spring.
With four Chop’t branches and Georgetown’s new Sweetgreen also in the mix, there’s likely to be a designer-salad spot near you by the time Washington’s summer heat rolls in.
