From our intern Carly Stewart:

What’s a newly transplanted veggie-lover to do?

Having spent the last three years in Atlanta, I have to confess that I’ve been spoiled by really great vegan and vegetarian food. The Flying Biscuit has a tofu scramble so perfectly seasoned and veggie-stuffed that the restaurant's towering, buttery namesake seems like an afterthought. Sevananda, the grocery store in hip Little Five Points, has tons of delicious, shrink-wrapped vegan sandwiches, wraps and desserts to go. The World Peace Café offers a ridiculously good veggie Peace Burger, made from scratch, with thick sweet potato fries. R. Thomas stocks a sinfully sweet vegan hummingbird cake. Avid vegetarian restaurant connoisseur that I am, even I haven’t plumbed the depths of the veggie wealth in the ATL — but certainly not for lack of trying.

Maybe I’ve been overlooking your treasures, Nashville, but I have to confess that I keep returning to the Green Hills Whole Foods hot bar in lieu of a better option. I did find some fine vegetarian cuisine: the veggie burger at J. Alexander’s, the sandwiches at Fiddlecakes, the eggplant sandwich at Savarino’s. I even stumbled across a few baked vegan goods in the Belmont area, but it’s pretty hit-or-miss.

So tell me what I don’t know, Nashville: Where is the good vegan/vegetarian food?
