Veg-friendly Tacoma. That’s a questionable notion for plant-based eaters facing a dearth of fine dining restaurants in Tacoma that take the meat out of the menu.

That’s not to say vegetarian eating can’t be found here. Tacoma’s Quickie Too and Caffe Dei cater to that eating style on a casual level, and myriad restaurants list streamlined choices for non-meat eaters. But fine dining vegan or vegetarian with extensive menus? Not in Tacoma.

Until now.

While neither is fully vegetarian or vegan, two new restaurants offer deeper choices for high-end veg dining than I’ve ever seen in Tacoma. AmeRAWcan Bistro and Marrow Kitchen Bar both opened this month with trendy digs, polished dining experiences and lengthy veg-friendly menus.

Today, I take a bite out of the two new veg-friendly fine dining restaurants and tell you about the casual options already available in Tacoma. Click the posts above to read more about Caffe Dei, Quickie Too, Marrow and AmeRAWcan Bistro.
