The new location (in the mini-mall where Pat & Oscars used to be) will be the company’s 23rd restaurant and they’re giving out a few gift cards to celebrate the opening.

. . . the restaurant will thank every guest in line between 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. on Jan. 22 with a $20 Veggie Grill gift card. Additionally, one lucky guest chosen at random will win “Veggie Grill for a Year.” . . . “Consumers are more aware of the nutritional benefits of clean eating than ever before and they’re looking for dining options offering delicious food they can feel good about,” said Greg Dollarhyde, Chief Energizing Officer for Veggie Grill. “The support from the San Diego community has been instrumental in our mission of giving guests a new way to eat well and engage in an active lifestyle.”

We’re not fans of chain restaurants nor fast-casual order-at-the-counter spots, but all-veggie food is all good (plus they serve “locally-produced craft beer and wine). So there’s that. For the official word from Veggie Grill follow the jump. [click to continue…]
