Vegan eatery expands into Seattle

Vegans and vegetarians in Seattle rejoice!

Plant-based eatery The Veggie Grill is expanding further into the Pacific Northwest with its newest location in Seattle's South Lake Union neighborhood.

The 3,000 square foot establishment offers quick -- but premier -- service and is located at 446 Terry Avenue North.  The Veggie Grill opens daily at 11a.m. and serves lunch, dinner - including business lunches, take-out, and also catering!

"Our guests are looking to eat food that is wholesome and clean as well as satisfying - whether they are carnivores or vegetarians. We think the timing is perfect to introduce Veggie Grill to two of Seattle's most vibrant communities," declared Greg Dollarhyde, CEO of Veggie Grill.

Voted the "Best American Restaurant" by the L.A. Times 2012 Reader's Choice, the Veggie Grill transforms ordinary plant-based food into the extraordinary.  The menu includes, but is not limited to:  salads, sandwiches, burgers, dessert, and organic teas.  Everything is plant-based meaning all of the food is free of animal fat, dairy, cholesterol, trans fat, and even high fructose corn syrup.

According to Dollarhyde,"The Veggie Grill concept and culinary philosophy are simple. We serve delicious and approachable plant-based food in a friendly and convenient setting.  People who try our food for the first time are always surprised to discover they don't have to sacrifice any of their favorite flavors."

Veggie Grill is headquartered in Santa Monica, Calif., with 11 locations dotting the West Coast. A second Veggie Grill will be opening in Washington State this fall.
