What the Main Ingredient lacks in pizzaz it makes up for immediately when you get the food. Located on Tharpe, near the High Rd intersection, Main Ingredient is little more than a converted garage with indoor and outdoor seating for those comfortable summer afternoons. The food is the main star here, as you pick your main ingredient (hence the name) from a list of beef, chicken, fish, and veggies and then choose from a selection of preparation styles. The food is always fresh and made to order. The meals are reasonably priced and dinner will run you about $8-15. This is a great place to take the picky eater(s) in your life, as they can accomodate almost anyone's taste. They also serve beer and wine. The wait staff is friendly and knowledgeable, but expect a wait during lunch and dinner rushes as the kitchen prepares your meal to your specifications. My final verdict: definately one of Tallahassee's gems.
