Beyond the Edge has a fantastic beer selection. They also have a fantastic buy-one-get-one happy hour special. And they have fantastic vegan food. I’ve written about this East Nashville gem before here and I will likely write about it again. It’s good, and it’s one of those places that keeps me coming back with varied menu options and, frankly, an awesome beer selection. Look at all those taps! And they have four kinds of Yazoo! It’s the only place in town of which I am aware where you can sample Yazoo’s A Beer Named Sue, which is a mysterious dark confection, and can potentially attribute the gravel in its guts and the spit in its eye to that name.
A commenter on my last Beyond the Edge post informed me that the buns the restaurant uses are not vegan. I’m not sure if they are or not (as when I asked I was told they were) but to be safe, I opted for a bun-less meal this time. What you see in the photo is not on the menu. It’s kind of a cross between the veggie wrap and the veggie burger pizza wrap. Kudos to Beyond the Edge for (1) accepting a custom order; (2) not messing up a custom order; and (3) adding stuff to a custom order to make it even more awesome. I basically asked for the veggie burger pizza wrap but with more of a Tex-Mex twist. Since the veggie burger is a black bean patty, I thought it would be complemented nicely by avocado and salsa (instead of the cheese and marinara that came with the pizza wrap). The cook really went above and beyond, filling the wrap with lettuce, tomato, onion, carrots, and red cabbage. I dipped it in the little cup of salsa that came on the side. It was AWESOME. The blend of flavors was really fantastic – spicy burger and salsa, cool avocado and veggies. The carrots gave it a nice crunch factor. Plus, Beyond the Edge has my favorite fries in town. Look how delicious they are! This was one of the better lunches I’ve had in a while. I’d love to see it on the menu permanently … so you should go there and ask for it.
