Boca Raton/ Delray Beach : Restaurants with vegetarian-friendly menus?

gozu Feb 20, 2007 01:58 PM

Hi there,

I'm taking a couple of friends out to dinner tomorrow and one of them is a vegetarian (who eats fish as well). Could you recommend me good restaurants with vegetarian-friendly menus in the Boca Raton/ Delray Beach area? I'm looking for decent settings and prices in the inexpensive to moderate area.

PS: Not chinese restaurants though. And preferably no sushi

      Sure, greek, indian, lebanese, thai among others are vegetarian-friendly cuisines. However, I'm looking for actual restaurant names (good ones).

      There's a consistently good Italian spot on the border of Delray/Boca called Cucina Rosana, on Jog Rd. between Clint Moore and Linton. They've got great salads, pizzas, pastas.

        I'm a vegetarian who likes to eat in moderately priced restaurants and lives in NE Boca. I like this question! A few ideas:

        Taverna Kyma -- delicious new Greek restaurant from the Taverna Opa owners. It's on Federal ~1 mile north of Yamato. They feature fresh seafood/fish and have lots of delicious veggie mezes on their menu. And no dancing on tables, loud music like opa.

        Lilly's -- Palmetto Park Rd east of US-1. Little trattoria with delicious pastas (MANY vegetarian pasta options, including wheat pasta, butternut squash ravioli, etc). Their generous portions include a house salad (and their bread and salad is very good) and most entrees are under $15. Also great eggplant dishes, and fish.

        Inca Grill - Peruvian restaurant on Federal Hwy about 1/2 mile north of Glades. It's in a strip center that doesn't look like much, but inside it's nice. Very delicious food including ceviches and an amazing avocado salad.

          Eilat Cafe on SW 18th St in Boca is fish and dairy only (kosher so no meat fats are used). Lots of vegetarian things to eat and on the water too with a nice deck. Pastas, pizzas, fish and salads.
