Veggie-friendly restaurant with great steak in Harvard/Central/Porter/Inman Squares
As a long-term vegetarian whose meat-loving dad is coming to town, I am a bit in a bind about where to go for dinner.
The restaurant should be in one of the four squares, as I need to use public transportation. Entrees should be around 15-25 Dollars, I don't want to tax his portemonnaie too much. And nothing too exotic, he couldn't handle that.
So, good vegetarian options and great steak.
Help me out?
Ate at Garden at the Cellar last night. Have been 3 times in the past 9 months.
They have changed their steak frites. What used to be a hangar is now a ribeye and the presentation is different. Was a huge disappointment. Ribeye was just meh while the hangar had better flavor and texture imo for a steak frites. Rosemary/truffle fries were great. The special appetizer of tuna carpaccio rolled around (I think) a bean puree and then partially cooked at the table in a hot broth was unique and very good.
If you feel like staying on the red line to South Station, consider Les Zygomates. Very nice steak frites and always a veggie entree. Plus live jazz, if your dad would enjoy that(?)
Green Street has steak frites as well as pot roast. There are several vegetarian dishes including apps, and some vegetarian sides, too.
