Two new restaurants open at Cedar Hills Crossing in Beaverton
Cedar Hills Crossing in Beaverton is offering two new spots for people to grab a bite in town.
The two restaurants, Evergreens and Shake Shack, offer different dining experiences for people looking to order some food during lunch or dinner.
Evergreens — a fast-casual salad concept started in Seattle — opened its doors just in time for spring at 2725 S.W. Cedar Hills Blvd. The restaurant offers made to order salads, wraps and warm grain bowls.
"We are basically your answer to everything healthy, but we also add some fun crunchy items in there," said Hilary Hartford, Evergreens director of administration.
Evergreens has nine signature and recipe salads with the option of customizing your meal. The menu features items such as El Sombrero, which is a salad, wrap or bowl made up of romaine, avocado, grape tomatoes, fire-roasted corn and other Mexican-style toppings.
Started in 2013, the restaurant currently has seven locations in the Pacific Northwest, with a handful set to open in Portland this year, according to the company.
The Cedar Hills location gives Evergreens a foothold on Portland's Westside, with plans to expand further.
"We have another location in Hillsboro, and this was a great opportunity because it's an up-and-coming area," Hartford explained. "There are a lot of great food options around here, and we thought it would be just a great fit to bring to the Beaverton community."
Whenever possible, Evergreens also tries to include locally sourced ingredients throughout the Pacific Northwest, added Hartford.
"Evergreens fits into everyone's lifestyle, and accommodates a wide range of dietary needs, including vegan, vegetarian, gluten free, dairy free, and WHOLE30," said Evergreens in an announcement of the restaurant's opening.
The highly anticipated Shake Shack is also now open for business.
With its bright green burger logo and patio deck ready to go, the restaurant held a ribbon cutting on Friday, April 16.
In accordance with state and county regulations, Shake Shack said that its Cedar Hills Shack will allow guests to dine in at limited capacity.
The restaurant features a large covered outdoor patio for guests, as well as to-go orders, pre-order for pickup or delivery via the Shack app.
Web ordering will be available in the coming weeks, said the chain in an announcement.
"We are ecstatic to open our first location in Oregon," said Andrew McCaughan, Shake Shack's chief development officer. "Portland is such a special and booming community. We're ready to serve up our classic burgers starting in Beaverton. With our West End Portland Shack on the way as well, we hope the community is just as excited as we are!"
Shake Shack will be opening that location in Portland in early 2022. The Portland restaurant will also feature an outdoor patio.
At the Cedar Hills location, people can also use curbside pickup as part of the restaurant's new Shack Track, Shake Shack's digital pre-ordering service.
People can pre-order using the app or website and pick up the order using the drive-up window, walk-up window, curbside pickup or via pickup shelves.
Cedar Hills Shack's menu will feature the ShackBurger — a single or double cheeseburger topped with lettuce, tomato and ShackSauce — crinkle-cut fries, and hand-spun shakes. The restaurant chain says that its avocado bacon burger and Avocado Bacon Chick'n Shack will also be available as limited time offers.
"The Shack will also feature seasonal lemonades and shakes, including strawberry rhubarb shake and chocolate pudding shake," said Shake Shack in the announcement. "The Cedar Hills Shack will also offer an array of local brews including select beers from Breakside Brewery, Ecliptic Brewing and Occidental Brewing."
You can find the restaurant at 2597 S.W. Cedar Hills Blvd. in Beaverton.
Shake Shack will operate from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday to Thursday and 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays.
