Chop’t Coming to the Rye Ridge Shopping Center


Chop’t, the choose-as-you-go salad restaurant, will open in the Rye Ridge Shopping Center in the spring. (The information, and photos, are from a press release I received from Win Ridge Realty LLC, the manager for the Rye Ridge Shopping Center.)

It’s the first location outside of New York or Washington D.C.

Chop’t offer an assembly line of salad options where customers can choose the type of lettuce, which of the 30 “Choppings” get tossed into the salad and which of the numerous homemade fresh daily dressing.

Once all the ingredients are selected they are passed to the “chopping station” and specially chopped with a mezzaluna chopper. Customers will also have the choice to have their salad rolled into a wrap sandwich.

The first Chop’t Location was opened in 2001 in NYC’s Union Square, the company currently has four locations in New York City and four locations in Washington DC. The company’s founders are obsessed with finding the freshest ingredients, crafting new salads, finding better sourcing and traveling the world searching for new combinations of spices, oils and vinegars.
