Vegetarian in Dupont
I was hoping for some help finding a vegetarian friendly restaurant in Dupont for a first date. I don't think she eats fish, but I know meat-based broths and sauces are OK. I'd like to stick as close to Dupont as possible, but I'd take something between Farragut North and Woodley. Thanks.
Try Zorba's. Cheap eats, but great food and decent wine. Just a cute romantic place. Lauriol Plaza is also an option, but closer to Adams Morgan. La Tomate is excellent and they'll make veg options for you if you ask - a bit pricey, but romantic with great wine. Urbana is an excellent place also - a wine bar. I am a vegetarian, but with the app's and the sides I end up being full. They used to have an excellent mushroom risotto, but I'm not sure if it's there anymore. Penang's has great asian fusion food. My husband and I go to all of these places frequently. Good luck!
I would check out Sette Osteria for good Italian cuisine. There are good pastas and pizzas and vegetarian friends have found quite a few things to eat there.
If you are into Indian, you should go to Heritage. I love their Indian cuisine and they have a fun part of the menu that has a bunch of Indian street food, which can be fun to share on a date.
If you like Thai I would suggest either Thai Chef or Mai Thai (they have great drinks).
Levante's on 19th for middle eastern (I always enjoy my meals here, although I know not all chowhounders agree). Their flatbread is ver tasty and they have a large number of veg options.
Heritage India on Connecticut for modern Indian with plenty of veg options
There are also plenty of Thai restaurants that are very veg-friendly...I enjoy Thai Chef on Connecticut just north of the circle, as they have both thai and sushi and a nice atmosphere.
