Best restaurant for vegetarians: Marrow
2717 6th Ave
It’s awkward to suggest a place named after the meatiest of dishes is a sweet spot for vegetarians (no, it’s not named for the British word for squash), but the fact is it's turning out multiple hand-made pasta dishes, herbed barley, and bulgur succotash good enough that even the wild boar tenderloin and namesake bone marrow pale in comparison.

The vast majority of places in Tacoma would feel completely out of place if dropped down in the middle of say, Manhattan, but Hilltop’s elegance, excellent craft cocktails, incredible list of mezcal and tequila, and Latin-inspired food would fit in just as well anywhere. Tacoma’s just lucky that’s where it ended up.
