Avondale is one of our favorite neighborhoods for bites and sips. Before heading to the brewery, stop Avondale Common House for a few bites without meat.

You wouldn’t even know that some of these dishes are vegan. With hits like the Buffalo Cauliflower, Chimichurri Wrap, Fried Green Tomatoes, and Italian Pasta Salad, you’d better be hungry.
