Vegetarian Restaurant Week options
If you're looking into lunch, Eleven Madison Park seems like they have a good vegetarian option (as an entree), since they've sent me their RW lunch menu. What the menu has is called "Blanquette of Green Market Vegetables and Chanterelle Mushrooms."
This is still the case in 2009, at Amalia there is just one dish I was told"can be made" vegetarian. $35 is still a lot for us, so I am shifting my focus to real vegetarian restaurants
even though I am an omnivore and my partner veg.At Pure food, Candle cafe,Dirt candy,Counter,Angelica kitchen etc. there is plenty to choose from for everyone.
Also, the vegetarians can have the satisfaction of supporting vegetarian restaurants. And the price will be comparable or better in most cases.
I hope Chowhound gets more vegetarian -aware also.
