Creative Vegan / Vegetarian in Tampa?
Other than Grass Roots? I have a friend visiting that "doesn't eat anything that had a face" that I want to accommodate (and suppress the desire to eat a burger in front of). I know there are ethnic places that are veggie-friendly (Indian mostly), but are there any contemporary, creative spots like Pure Food & Wine (NYC) or Cafe 118 (Winter Park)?
Consciouness Blossoms in Palm Harbor is amazing! Also, Ella's American Folk Art Cafe in Seminole Heights in Tampa has wonderful atmosphere, food and service and caters to vegetarian & meat eaters. Bern's offers great options for a vegetarian: Hello truffle mac & cheese and goat cheese ravioli!
