highish-end vegetarian-friendly restaurant

my friend is seeking a nice romantic place to take her veg. hubby to for their anniversary. she is not a veg. and is looking for somewhere that has both options but more than just a bowl of pasta for him.
i sugggested aureole as they do a great veg. tasting menu but that was a little too upscale and too upper east side-ish.
any suggestions i can pass on?
perhaps lupa? the vegetable starters and sides i've had have been amazingly well-prepared, and the pastas are superb - all far from the sad afterthought veg options are at other restaurants.
I suggest Hangawi or Craft
Lovely atmosphere, and a wonderful menu.
I also suggest your friend studies the menu ahead of time,
it is the type of place where your meal can range from
exceptional to average, depending on what you order.
I haven't been there recently, so I hesitate to make menu
Craft is veg-friendly. If you get a reservation, you can
call and discuss veg options available. yummy.
You are not correct about Pure Food & Wine. The fact is they are strictly vegan.
My suggestion would be Devi. The superb Indian cuisine is perfect for both carnivores and vegetarians. In addition to the a la carte menu, they offer two tasting menus, one of which is vegetarian. Service is friendly and efficient. The space on two levels has unusual, elegant decor. Sitting in one of the two small curtained alcoves at the rear of the main level adds a feeling of romance.
