The Wild Cow Vegetarian Restaurant opens tonight for its first dinner following Saturday's grand opening party.

The East Nashville eatery, located across from Rosepepper Cantina on Eastland Avenue, aims to serve Nashville's sizable (and largely ignored) vegetarian and vegan community--while offering enough creativity and fresh ingredients to lure diners of all persuasions.

John and Melanie Cochran are the owners. The menu, which can be seen on the website, features vegetarian sandwiches and entrées (tofu and tempeh take a starring role in many), dips and salads. Melanie Cochran says daily specials will also be key. At the opening party, the special was lasagna, in both vegetarian (with cheese) and vegan (dairy-free) versions.

Cheeses are organic and come from free-range cows; Cochran says the restaurant aims to serve only cruelty-free products.

The Wild Cow also offers something rare: vegetarian Sunday brunch. Cochran says mimosas will make the meal even more convivial. The restaurant serves wine and hard cider, but no beer or spirits.

The restaurant will be closed tomorrow and every Tuesday from now on. Hours: 10:30 a.m.-9 p.m. Monday and Wednesday-Saturday; 10:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Sunday.
