Vegetarian Tasting Menu
Can you please recommend some restaurants that have a vegetarian tasting menu? I'm looking for a mid-range restaurant (less than $100/person) rather than a Daniel or Per Se. I prefer something with a nice atmosphere, and while not a must, prefer ethnic cuisines (Indian, Thai, etc.) Thanks!
The vegetable tasting menu at Gramercy Tavern is $88 and highly delicious, and I say this as a meat eater! Chef Michael Anthony does wonderful things with vegetables (the mushroom ravioli is amazing, and I still think about that delicious carrot soup from time to time). The tasting menu is a vegetable tasting menu, and not strictly vegetarian, but can be made vegetarian upon request (I'd call ahead).
Devi has a great vegetarian tasting menu; I haven't had it since their reopening, but when I had it a little over a year ago, I loved it, as did my entire family. It doesn't seem to be on their website now, but I'm pretty sure they still offer it - just call and check.
For ethnic choice, Devi's tasting menu can be done in non-vegetarian or vegetarian style for $65 ($110 with wine). They also have prix-fixe menus which are even cheaper.
For new American, my pick will be Blue Hill. With all the great spring vegetables appearing in the market, I can't think of a better place to enjoy vegetables than Blue Hill.
Sugiyama has a Vegetarian Kaiseki for $58
Advanced reservation is required for it according to the website
