The Best Restaurants with Vegan Options in Nashville

The OpenTable Team

People come to Nashville to visit honky tonks, see the Grand Ole Opry, and tour the Country Music Hall of Fame, but Nashville is more than music. This popular city is also home to must-try food. In recent years, stellar chefs have opened restaurants in a wide variety of cuisines throughout the town. But where are the smartest, savviest diners eating out? Welcome to our Tastemaker Lists. We’ve pulled data from thousands of restaurants to find the top spots among OpenTable's most expert, seasoned diners. Nashville's well-known for having great southern food, but the city also has a surprisingly large number of restaurants that cater to vegan diners, serving dishes centered on plant-based proteins like tempeh, tofu, and edamame. Here are some of the best places in town for vegan eaters.
