We have to be at an event at Athletic Center at 7:00, and it's a special occasion. One of our party of 8 is vegetarian. Any suggestions?

    Since you said it's a special occasion, I'd probably go to Aquitaine Bis, which is the "nicest" place I can think of that's convenient to BC. They have at least one vegetarian entree, and I think a couple of apps.

          There is a Capital Grille close by BC as well

          I would go with the Met Club, its super close, and I remember the food and service being top notch

            Thanks, everyone! We had brunch at the Metropolitan Club to check it out and it was wonderful! We'll have dinner there. The sides will work well for the vegetarian, too!

                I had wanted to go to Oishi on Sunday, but the line was out the door, so we ended up at the MC. It's fun getting to know a new city!

                The earliest evidence of dinner dates from approximately 4400 BC...
