Stop by Chop’t in the Rye Ridge Center in Rye Brook and see what New York City and Washington D.C. locals have been raving about for years. Chop’t is a unique salad bar that allows customers to choose from numerous toppings and dressings. The ingredients are then chopped with a mezzaluna chopper to create the mixed salad of your dreams. Alternatively, customers can choose from one of the Chop’t Classics, such as the Santa Fe, Palm Beach Shrimp, Modern Greek or Fall Classic. The salads can also be wrapped up in a flatbread if sandwiches are more your style. The best part about Chop’t is the “better is better” philosophy, meaning that better ingredients make better food. The eco-friendly restaurant uses all farm fresh and organic vegetables, and the “freebird” chicken is antibiotic, hormone and cage free so you can feel good about that delicious salad you’re eating.
