  1. I didn't know they let vegans into Memphis?

    1. There are actually quite a few options depending on where you are in town. Midtown has a lot of vegetarian options - Jasmine Thai, Cafe Ole, Do and Big Lou's Pizza Pie are all in Cooper-Young and have vegetarian options on the menu. Most of the other restaurants in midtown will prepare vegetarian dishes if you let them know what you're looking for. Central BBQ even has a Portobella sandwich on the menu along with great veg sides. Out in Germantown, Las Tortugas has cheese and avocado sandwiches on the menu and does specials like black bean tostadas and tamales. Downtown, Majestic Grille and Sole in the Westin both do great things with local produce. In east Memphis, Interim, Grove Grile, Andrew Michael and Napa Cafe have vegetarian options for dinner, Lucchesi's would be great for lunch. And don't skip Muddy's Bakeshop for pies and cupcakes.
