      1. For a casual atmosphere and good food, I really like Red Bamboo:

        I recommend the Creole Soul Chicken appetizer and the Collard Green Rolls

          I second Red Bamboo. Also, Vegetarian Dim Sum House.

        2. I vote against Angelica. I have been there twice and the food is horribly bland. It's the epitome of what people think of when they hear the words "health food."

          I love the South Indian vegetarian places on Lexington between 25th and 28th, particularly Pongal and Madras Mahal.

          I also love Pukk on 1st ave near 7th St. - it's a completely vegetarian Thai restaurant - no fish sauce, no meat (but lots of fake meat made from soy).

            re: angelica - fine, more dragon bowls & cornbread for me!

              Agree about the Indian places--I am not a veggie and I would always choose these over their meaty counterparts on 6th St. Personal fave is Chennai Garden. Who needs fake meat products when veg can taste this good?

                what about blossom on ninth av around 20th st? i haven't been but have heard it's very good and it looks very pretty. plus there's counter on first av - always been a positive experience.
