Gusto Farm to Street, a Maryland based, multi-unit fast casual restaurant specializing in healthy, customizable farm fresh salads and fast fired pizzas has announced three new seasonal menu items debuting March 21, 2018.
To usher in the spring season, Gusto has created a new salad, pizza and handcrafted beverage which will be added to their chef inspired menu on the spring solstice. “Spring Chick,” the new seasonal salad, is Gusto’s playful twist on a traditional chopped salad. On top of a fresh spring mix and romaine blend lays pancetta, hard boiled egg, avocado, bleu cheese, cilantro, tomato tossed with a “skinny vin,” Gusto’s take on a champagne vinaigrette. Gusto recommends the Spring Chick be accompanied with their signature roasted chicken.
Gusto has partnered with Washington, DC-based Little Wild Things City Farm to supply the restaurants with their edible flowers. Topping microgreens, these flowers accompany thinly sliced roasted red potatoes for Gusto’s seasonal pizza, cleverly named “Sprouts and Spuds.” The pizza also features extra virgin olive oil, sharp white cheddar and gouda cheeses, pancetta and is topped with a honey sriracha drizzle.
When asked about the new partnership with Little Wild Things, Gusto’s Director of Operations, Ben Protheroe said, “we are very excited to support and source locally grown produce. Little Wild Things is the newest addition to our growing list of farms we source from locally.” Gusto currently partners and sources from five to eight local farms depending upon seasonality of their ingredients.
Gusto will be replacing their Cranberry Pomegranate Juniper seasonal handcrafted beverage with a Blueberry Rhubarb Ginger drink. “Our handcrafted beverages have become a staple within the Gusto dining experience,” said Protheroe. “We take the time to make sure each beverage is made to perfection using only the freshest ingredients. All of our beverages are made daily inside each restaurant.” Gusto offers a wide range of additional handcrafted beverages in all of their locations.
