Every once in a while I am fortunate enough to stumble upon a fabulous vegetarian eatery.  I've actually dined at this one, VEG,  numerous times and sampled a variety of dishes, from appetizers to main courses.  This restaurant is located in Sarasota, Florida.

Marty and Maggie Glucklich, while living in South Africa, had a dream.  They have the goal of supporting local growers and producers and are ever so mindful of global sustainable fishing and farming practices.

Their menu says it all :

"Our philosophy, quite simply, is unpretentious.  Veg offers a variety of seasonal, creative and flavorful foods that bring a fresh perspective to vegetarian, vegan and seafood cuisines."

On this particular day I started with a South African red wine, a cup of mushroom barley soup and the fish tacos.  These tacos are made with the fish, BASA.  They are served in a soft corn tortillas with cabbage salsa fresca and an oriental ginger dressing.  YUM!

Check out their site:
