Just when it seemed like salad chain Chop't had cornered the market on cutesy monikers — and that local chain sweetgreen had captured local hearts — there's a new competitor in town. At least, maybe. Meet Toss'd, the latest contender in the surprisingly pack'd (sorry) fast-salad restaurants. ARLNow reports that the would-be salad entrepreneurs behind this venture are looking for backing on Kickstarter to open a salad-focused restaurant in the new Beacon at Clarendon West apartment building. The plan, after raising $50K on the crowdfunding site, is to include late-night hours (like, 3 a.m. on the weekend) to cater to the post-bar (salad hungry?) crowd. [ARLNow]
