Need reco to accomodate vegetarian/no beef/no shellfish

My cousin is visiting from overseas and I'll be taking her out to dinner next Monday. She doesn't eat beef or shellfish (crab, shrimp) and I'm a vegetarian. We will not be drinking wine so that's not a consideration. Preferably $50/person. I welcome any recommendations! Thanks in advance.

  1. There are many restaurants that could accommodate your criteria, but I would recommend Candle 79 (upscale vegan on the UES) if your budget is $50/person. That would allow for drinks (their ginger ale is quite tasty and intense), apps, entree and dessert.

    Other places that fit the bill are Blossom (also vegan), Counter (vegetarian bistro), and countless other restaurants specializing in ethnic cuisines (Thai, Indian, Greek, etc.) that would also have chicken or fish dishes for your cousin.

    Does your cousin have a particular cuisine in mind that they cannot get overseas? Where do you typically enjoy going out for vegetarian?
