Nashville is an underrated vegan city and I’m lucky enough to call it home.  I’ve eaten at all of the vegan & vegetarian restaurants many times and plenty of vegan-friendly restaurants and made this awesome (and hunger-inducing) guide to Nashville’s vegan scene.  Avo is one of the all-vegan restaurants in Nashville and an excellent choice for your next visit!

Avo sits just off Charlotte Avenue and is part of OneC1TY – a vibrant, growing urban community in Nashville.  Everything in the community caters to the idea that mindful healthy living can be made easy.  The design of ONEC1TY shows that sustainability is important.  You’ll find lots of green space, a community lawn and plenty of space for walking, biking and enjoying the outdoors.  Additionally, all design has been planned and constructed with plans to be LEED Neighborhood Development certified. 

Avo is part of the container village in ONEC1TY and is literally home to a shipping container.  Right next door is Crossfit Nashville and Nashville Sports Leagues – also in shipping containers.  In the little container village, you’ll also find sand volleyball courts.

Avo is very refreshing with its beautiful natural light, bar with greenery and Instagram-worthy interior.

I’ve been to Avo several times and each time the food has been delicious and almost too pretty to eat.  I said almost. Don’t worry, I still ate it all.  The latest time, I got the Lentil Walnut Cheeseburger, the Strawberry Caprese and an Avo Margarita (signature cocktail!).  I’ve also had the cheese plate and pad thai before and it was all phenomenal.

That was probably one of the best veggie burgers I’ve ever had.  Definitely in my top 3.  The patty, made out of lentils and walnuts, was unlike anything I’ve had and so melt in your mouth good.  Their vegan homemade cheese is so good and everything tasted so fresh and healthy.  That’s homemade beet ketchup too, y’all.

Strawberries, vegan mozzarella, mint, oil and vinaigrette pearls. I didn’t even know there was such a thing.

Their signature drink is the avo margarita and it is not to be missed!  It’s perfect and don’t skip it if you don’t like avocados or tequila because I don’t like tequila and it’s still amazing!

I hope I’ve convinced you to give Avo a chance while you’re in Nashville next!  It’s definitely worth a visit.  They also just became kosher certified as well!

    That walnut burger looks like something my son would make. He added an entire vegan menu to his college’s cafeteria. Being both vegan and gluten free, he needs to be careful of the binders they use in most store bought meat substitute patties. So much so, he often makes his own with fabulous results.

    These container stores are really becoming a trend! This one even has a volleyball court! That avo margherita looks pretty and sounds like a healthy drink! I bet it tastes yummy too!

    I’m so glad to learn about places like these because I doubt it’s someplace I’d find on my own. I love the concept of OneC1ty. Very socially conscious. More and more places like this are popping up, I think, but it’s hard to find them.

    I’ll definitely stop in Avo when I’m in Nashville. I want to try that margarita. It looks delicious!!!

    Ashley — great food photography. All of Avo’s offerings look very tempting, especially that burger. Now, I would have to say I not so sure about avocado IN my margarita. that said, I’ve never met a margarita I wouldn’t try!

    Love, love, love the Avo margarita! Though it looks really thick, I actually had a cocktail in Iceland with avocado in it, and I appreciated that the consistency caused me to drink my cocktail more slowly & actually enjoy it. The lentil walnut cheeseburger looks pretty good, too!

    Oh yes, an avo margarita sounds like heaven, looks pretty good too! I like veggie burgers, and you’ve eaten a lot, so if you say this is the best you’ve had, I believe it should be good!

    Sad that Avo is no longer a Raw Food Restaurant. Avo’s Raw Food Menu was good while it lasted

    I saw a container village like that in San Francisco, such a cool concept. I’ll keep this in mind for my next trip to Nashville!
