SEATTLE, Oct. 06, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- University Village today announced the addition of new restaurants and pop-up stores for Seattle shoppers.

This fall, University Village will welcome Juice Press, a premier organic grab-and-go health food shop with a selection of organic, plant-based food and beverage products. The U Village location will be the first on the West Coast, and will be located next to Aveda and Microsoft.

Even Stevens Sandwiches, a sandwich shop with a cause, will also open this fall next to Kid’s Club in their first Washington State location. For every sandwich sold, Even Stevens will donate one to a local non-profit partner. Since 2014, the company has donated more than 1.8 million sandwiches.

These new eateries will join recently-opened additions to University Village’s dining scene, which include Hokkaido Ramen Santouka, a delicious Hokkaido-style ramen restaurant known for its signature white broth that is never boiled.

Ba Bar, with its ever-popular Vietnamese street food, is now open daily for cocktails, phở, bánh cuốn, coffee, fresh pastries, and more in University Village’s South building, below Virginia Mason.

Also, Seattle favorite Rachel’s Ginger Beer, featuring Ma’ono fried chicken at the U Village location, is now open across from Pottery Barn.

Just in time for fall temperatures, the Escape Outdoors Pop-Up recently opened next to Anthropologie, and features a large selection of outdoor apparel including Patagonia and Arc’Teryx, as well as local brands such as Casual Industrees and Northwest Riders.

With their first location in Washington State, WILL Leather Goods Pop-Up is now open near the popular kid’s play area, and features a collection of bags, belts and leather accessories that are uniquely American. The family-owned lifestyle brand, based in Eugene, OR, is known for its fine leather craftsmanship and pieces that will last a lifetime.
