LES with a vegetarian friend? (for tonight)

Going to the Sunshine theater tonight on E Houston with a vegetarian friend (I respect the vegges, but ugh, dining out with them can be a challenge). Can anyone do me a favor and recommend some places that are (a) within 10 min walk of the theater, (b) veg-friendly (doesn't have to be a huge selection, just a few things she can eat), (c) moderate price range (i.e., entrees $20 or under), and (d) where we won't have to wait a ridiculously long time for a table at 9pm on a saturday? I know, it's a looooong wish list, so any suggestions that fit the bill are much appreciated.

  1. You probably already found a spot, but I would have recommended Kate's, Tien Garden, Teany, Madras, Atlas, Stanton Social, Counter, Essex, Caravan of Dreams, Paladar, etc.

    Where did you guys end up?

      Thanks for the recs...those are good ones, and I had forgotten about Paladar (one of my favorites in the area from a while ago). To my surprise, my friend suggested a french place (she had a craving for some veg cous-cous dish they make) on Rivington whose name escapes me now; food was nothing spectacular but I had a decent nicoise salad and we got a lovely outdoor table on a nice night which made it worthwhile.

      So yummy and cheap.
