Do they actually exist in your city??

I'll be flying in for a conference and want to seek out some restaurants prior to my arrival.

Thanks for your help and I'm looking forward to visiting your great city!

      There's Woodlands Restaurant <http://www.woodlandsnashville.com/>, which is South Indian and completely vegetarian; Grins Café <http://www.bongojava.com/grins.php> on the Vanderbilt University campus, which is kosher vegetarian, and the Wild Cow <http://www.thewildcow.com/twc/> which is vegetarian despite its name. I'm not aware of any other strictly vegetarian restaurants here, but most places have vegetarian or vegan options.

        Was in town for few days a couple of weeks ago. Had a quick and very enjoyable dinner at The Wild Cow. Two of us ended up with more food than we could eat:

        Starter - Hummus Plate: Homemade hummus of the day; served with raw veggies & tortilla chips $5.50. -- With rosemary during our visit. Chunky style. Very good.

        Sandwich - the Wild Rueben. Marinated & grilled tempeh or tofu, sauerkraut, shredded carrots, spicy mustard, homemade 1000 Island dressing, & Swiss cheese OR vegan cheese on rye bread; served with one side item $8.25. -- I had mine with tempeh and Swiss cheese. Very tasty and evocative of the "real" thing. Served warm. Filling.

        Entree - The Far Eastland Bowl: Grilled tofu with garlicky kale, carrot-daikon slaw & sesame seeds; topped with peanut sauce and served over brown rice $8.50. -- Kale was especially enjoyable. Also very filling.

        Side - lentil stew with carrots, onions, and garlic. -- Deep flavor, somehow smoky and sweet.
        Side - chickpea salad. -- Ok.

        Specials of the day for entree, soup, vegetable, juices, and desserts.

        Highly recommended.
