Li'l Woody's, the local burger chain that has locations on Capitol Hill and in Ballard, will open a third spot on Monday, November 14 in South Lake Union, at Thomas and Boren. The restaurant has made itself an essential part of Seattle's dining landscape with outlandish, messy, delicious burgers made with Northwest-raised grass-fed beef and fries that come with a side of "crack," a mini-milkshake with Full Tilt ice cream for dipping.
Joining Li'l Woody's at a new food court called The Deck will be fellow fast-casual restaurants Jujubeet and Evergreens, also opening Monday. Jujubeet, which has three Eastside venues and one in University Village, will offer cold-pressed organic juices, smoothies, and vegetarian meal options. Evergreens focuses on locally-sourced, seasonal salads. This is the business' fifth location in Seattle.
The three eateries will share an indoor and outdoor dining space. The idea of outside space may not be particularly attractive this time of year, but this one does have heaters and a fire pit to make the prospect more inviting.
Grand opening events will be held November 14 through 18 with a daily DJ from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. On those days, Jujubeet will offer complimentary tastings, Evergreens will offer complimentary cookie or chips with the purchase of a salad, wrap, or quinoa bowl, and Lil Woody's will give away free fries with the purchase of the SLU burger, a signature at this location: a housemade turkey burger with harissa yogurt sauce, cucumber, tomato, and lettuce.
The Deck is located at 1051 Thomas Street. All three restaurants are open Monday through Friday. Hours for Li'l Woody's will be 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Jujubeet 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Evergreens 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
