71 South provides vegan-friendly fare

This was a spot I had my eye on for some time. I’ve heard overwhelmingly constructive issues about 71 South, and a youthful Grub Sprout and his girlfriend dined there a month or so in the past, and have additionally praised the South Knoxville restaurant that borders the Baker Creek Reservation. Grub Partner and I went to dinner this previous weekend to see – and style – for ourselves.

Though we did some menu analysis on-line previous to our go to, we took a couple of minutes to undergo the grub and make our remaining selections. We selected the zucchini latkes ($8) as our appetizer. They’re deep-fried dumplings made with potatoes and zucchini topped with chunks of scallion and splashes of chipotle cream sauce. Different contenders on the app embody crispy Brussels sprouts, roasted pink pepper hummus, buffalo-flavored cauliflower bites and two totally different toppings on fries.

One dessert option at 71 South is a sandwich made with vanilla ice cream sandwiched between two homemade cookies and topped with whipped cream.

For our appetizers, I centered on sandwiches, whereas The Partner thought of an array of predominant dishes, together with cornbread-based Tennessee tacos, penne pasta, and Tuscan rooster. Husband narrowed it right down to grilled portobello and cauliflower steak earlier than choosing the latter ($13), primarily based on our server’s descriptions and suggestions. Steak is served with quinoa and mashed potatoes.
