Vegetarian Recs on a Monday night in SF
I have a friend visiting in a few weeks and she'll be staying at the Four Seasons. We're going to meet for dinner on a Monday night and she's a vegetarian. Any recommendations? FYI, I'm not a vegetarian so if you recommend a vegetarian restaurant, hopefully it offers something substantial.
Anyone tried the Millenium recently? Haven't heard much about them since they moved to Geary St., but met chef Ken Tucker awhile back and he seems like he knows his stuff.
Millennium is wonderful, and the chef (Eric Tucker) is always doing something new. The food is substantial, and you'll leave feel full and content! I've taken friends and family, many who aren't vegetarian, and they've all really enjoyed their experiences. It's really the place to go if you're a vegetarian, and you can't go wrong.
I visited All About Herbs recently, and the service was slow. Food was ok, but I'd prefer to go to Millennium over AAH.
I've enjoyed my dinners at Luella, but you'd need to take a cable car up to Russian Hill and back. Colibri offers a small array of veggie options, and it's near Union Square.
Personally, as a vegetarian, I love trying veggie restaurants or at least having more than 1 option for my entree. Go with Millennium!

re: Robert Lauriston
Most likely it's "butter" using a soy or other non-dairy "milk" base. Same thing with the "cream." I was at Millennium a few weeks ago and had a vegan "creme" brulee. It tasted a little more like flan, but still, it was yummy. Regarding vegan vs. vegetarian items, It never hurts to ask!
Whenever someone asks for vegetarian recs, I immediately think of ethnic restaurants. In addition to Dosa, perhaps you can look into Aziza or The Helmand. Saha would be another choice but they are not open on Mondays.
