Seafood place with veg options?
I'm relatively new to the Boston area (it's been about a year), and although I'm a foodie, I'm not a big seafoodie. Some friends are coming to visit next month and their only request is that we eat seafood. Unfortunately, one of our friends is a vegetarian. I don't want to just bring her along to a typical seafood restaurant, where the only things she'll be able to eat are rolls or a side salad. I need recommendations for restaurants that serve great seafood (don't necessarily have to be considered seafood restaurants) AND some vegetarian dishes (main dish salads are okay). My vegetarian friend is not a picky eater, but a couple of the others are, so I'd say that any Asian options are probably out. More in the American/Italian cuisine if possible.
A friend recommended the Barking Crab. They have no vegetarian dishes...but this is the sort of price range I'm looking for.
Thank you in advance!
Rendezvous might work for you, not a seafood restaurant but generally some of their better plates are seafood and usually some local options. Vegetarian option, probably a bit easier for the picky eaters, but interestingly enough for you. Slightly more upscale, but not any more expensive than East Coast (which I like, but have problems with picky eater friends there). Pescatore is a good suggestion for the Italian american, but if you want the North End or a bit more touristy, your vegetarian friend could get a salad and pasta at the Daily Catch. You could barely scrape by for the vegetarian friend at Muqueca or a Portuguese restaurant, but something like RV is going to have something much more interesting.
East Coast Grill should work. The All Vegetable Experience of the Day is awesome and a huge veggie main course. I don't eat seafood (I'm a veg), but ECG gets recommended frequently on this board and my seafood eating DCs have enjoyed it. http://www.eastcoastgrill.net/menus/d...
