Thursday's Meetup @ Veggie Grill in South Lake Union

When: Thursday, October 18,[masked]:30 PM

Where: Veggie Grill
446 Terry Ave North

This week we're making a stop at a place that sort of makes me think of what would have happened if a bunch of hippies went to work for Ore-Ida and Con-Agra and decided to create a fast food restaurant chain.

That sounds a little strange, perhaps, but I think the result is interesting. It's the only place I've ever been served a massive pile of steamed kale along with grilled tempeh (see the "urban plate" section of their menu) and they have lots of unusual re-interpretations of American comfort food using all vegetarian ingredients, plus familiar sides like sweet potato fries, mac and cheese, and so on.

This location serves the lunch crowd and is crazy busy in daylight hours, but should mellow out just for us by the time we arrive.

We'll ask people to order at the counter so that I don't have to deal with any bill complications, but you can always arrange to share some of the nifty appetizers they have with your friends and neighbors at the table.

I can't remember if they serve any alcohol, but they have some nice iced teas and juices, and we may make a trip to Brave Horse Tavern for a fancy nijikai.

You can eat fairly cheaply here; if you're on a budget, I'm sure you can leave quite full on about $10-13 or so. It's a little more if you order an iced tea or appetizer.

You can easily get here from downtown using the South Lake Union Streetcar, or several of the Fremont or U-District bound buses that run along Fairview. Buses that run along Denny, like route 8, require only a short walk. Parking is relatively inexpensive here; street parking is about $2/hour before 8pm, and fairly plentiful at night. Some paid lots are available nearby as well.


This Meetup repeats every week on Thursday.

If the changes affect your plans to attend, please take a moment to update your RSVP. (You can RSVP "No" or "Yes".)

You can always get in touch with me through my group profile on Meetup.
