Veggie Grill, the popular West Coast restaurant concept known for craveable, plant-based food, opens its third Seattle location downtown at the corner of 4th & Pike St. on Wednesday, Sept. 11. Veggie Grill will be serving its better-for-you, fast casual cuisine seven days a week, opening at 11 a.m. To celebrate Veggie Grill’s arrival to downtown Seattle, and the opening of its 21st location, the restaurant will thank its first guests in line between 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. on September 11 with a Veggie Grill gift card. Additionally, 10 of those lucky guests chosen at random will win “Veggie Grill for a Year” (one Veggie Grill entrée per week for 52 weeks).
