Vegetarian for Lent

I'm trying to give up meat for all of lent. I work in Woodland Hills, anyone have any suggestions for fish or vegetarian meals?

    follow your heart,
    21825 Sherman Way
    Canoga Park, CA 91303
    (818) 348-3240

    it's a great little restaurant that, if you are familiar with the hippy movement of the late '60's early '70's, will remind you of that kind of that kind of food done well.

      Do you recommend anything in particular there?

        i'd recommend taking a stroll around the restaurant to see what's on other people's tables and decide what looks good to you.
        they have a large and varied menu with lots of good choices.

      King's Seafood in Calabasas has a nice selection of fish.

      I don't know where you live, but Hummus Bar and Grill in Tarzana is awesome and you can eat like a king (or queen) without having any meat.

        I gave up yelp for restaurant reviews.... Not for lent, but simply because Chowhound is much more reliable.

          I've never been but I think Madeleine Bistro in Tarzana is supposed to be good and it's completely vegan.

            yeah, the menu sounds really interesting on this one and pricey. sounds like an upscale, haute vegetarian joint, no whiff of the 60s summer of love here.

              i was underwhelmed by madeline's bistro.

              deep fat frying seitan so you get chicken-fried seitan, might do it for some, but i was raised in NY and don't crave nor appreciate that sort of southern fried dish. it was, however, the best of the food that was served there; all the other, non-southern dishes were sub-par imho.

              there are others on this board, though, that disagree with me about this place.

                That's good to know, thanks!
