The Veggie Grill
Photo Release -- The OC's Hottest New Restaurant Marks Its Debut in Irvine
IRVINE, Calif., Nov. 17, 2006 (PRIMEZONE) -- The owners of a new restaurant are betting that the public will embrace "the next step in the evolution of American dining" as The Veggie Grill marks its debut at the University Center in Irvine (4213 Campus Drive, near Trader Joe's). The brainchild of Internet entrepreneur T.K. Pillan, investment firm owner Kevin Boylan and veteran restaurateur Ray White, The Veggie Grill features a menu of classic American food with an exotic twist. The sandwiches, burgers, salads, decadent desserts and other casual fare contains ingredients rarely used in Western cooking that are flavorful, boast exquisite textures and do not contain any of the harmful elements found in so many of today's foods. White expects that The Veggie Grill will distinguish itself amongst others in the genre much like his previous endeavor, Native Foods, did when it earned USA Today's "best vegetarian restaurant in the nation" designation.
