Fine dining in NYC with vegetarian options

jamaicaplain Feb 9, 2009 08:27 AM

Hi Everyone,
I am going to be NYC this weekend to celebrate my sister's 30th birthday. We want to take her somewhere nice (on the scale/quality of Dovetail or WD50) with some vegetarian options. I am open to Brooklyn or Manhattan...Any suggestions?? I would really love some help!

    Al of the following offer vegetarian options, though some require advance notice (up to 72 hours) to accommodate, so be sure to check:

    Jean Georges
    Eleven Madison Park
    Cafe Boulud
    Blue Hill
    Gramercy Tavern

        I was just checking out those restaurants- my husband is vegetarian but doesn't like it when they say they will make something for him- he prefers to choose from preferably 2 options! Picholine has a vegetarian menu! We're going to try it out on our anniversary next week.

        Eleven Madison is definitely great for a very nice option, as is Gramercy Tavern. I also had a nice vegetarian lunch at Tabla.

            Tabla looked great. But we decided to go with Dovetail -- they apparently do vegetarian options on request. Blue Hill was at the top of the list, but the only thing that they had open this weekend was a Valentine's Day prix fixe which I wasn't too excited about. Thanks for all the help again!

          Do not know if considered fine dining, but really like Hangawi in little Korea
