This week yields a lot of great news for vegetarians, vegans and the veg-curious. Here’s a round-up of of what you need to know:

Sunflower Cafe opens for dinner

Starting tomorrow night, April 17, Sunflower Cafe, the vegetarian and vegan cafe in Berry Hill will be open for dinner. The restaurant will now be open Monday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Carrington Fox visited the restaurant shortly after it opened; read her review here. I also have it on the good authority of multiple herbivores and omnivores that they have a wonderful veggie burger. I hope to get by there for it soon.

Sunflower Cafe
2834 Azalea Place
Monday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Vegetarian VEA Supper Club
This Saturday, Vivek Surti’s popular pop-up, VEA Supper Club, will feature guest chef Lata Surti, Vivek’s mother. The menu will consist of vegetarian Indian specialties. Even if you are an omnivore, you don't want to miss this opportunity to have authentic, homemade-quality Indian food.

Ryan Moses of Drink Music City will once again be on hand for optional drink pairings as well. I’ll be there, and if you want to join as well, you should act fast; last I checked, only six four tickets were still available.

Saturday, April 20, 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Nashville Farmers’ Market
900 Rosa L. Parks Blvd.

The Front Vegan Cookie Delivery
There was a lot of excitement a while back when word got out about Jake’s Bakes, the cookie delivery service. Now — just in time for college finals — a new business is giving vegans an option for late-night cookie fixes, as well. The Front started delivery service this week with a selection of vegan cookies that sound delicious. Deliveries are made via bicycle, so the delivery area is limited for now, but the service will accept orders up until 3 a.m. and will even accept orders to pick up (non-age-restrictive) convenience items on the way. Check their website for flavors and ordering information.

Celebrate Thy Vegetable at The Wild Cow
Celebrate Thy Vegetable, the gourmet vegan pop-up restaurant, will be making its second appearance April 30 at The Wild Cow. This time around, Dan Forberg will be featuring the cuisines of Mexico and Africa in five courses, each with a wine pairing. Check out the Facebook event page for more information.
