The Grit, located in the quintessential boho town of Athens, Georgia, is known far and wide as the touring musicians' restaurant of choice. This classic cookbook features 150 of The Grit's most requested recipes, including 20 new recipes to celebrate the 20th anniversary of this famous establishment. True to its Southern roots, this hip vegetarian eatery combines soul-food sensibility with meatless cuisine, and while there are plenty of Italian, Indian, Mexican, and Middle Eastern favorites to satisfy the well-traveled vegetarian, the heart of this cuisine maintains the down-home, soul-food feeling of simple foods and classic combinations that are guaranteed to please.

I've never been lucky enough to visit Athens, GA and eat at this restaurant, but someone who has gave me this amazing cookbook. Being vegan, the recipes I love the most are the ones easy to make without dairy. My absolute favorites, which I've made dozens of times each are the white gravy and sausage, and the corn and potato chowder. Both are always favorites! Thank you Grit!
