      Brasserie Jo is a fairly close and qutie pleasant.

      If the vegetarian is a pescatarian (eats fish but not meat), then you might want to consider Legal Seafoods (there is one nearby in the Prudential Center).

        Both good recs. The Summer Shack is also a short walk, and has good seafood options, especially for basic stuff, raw bar, lobster etc.

        It tends to get mixed reviews here, but Laurel would meet all of your requirements and I have always had a pleasant experience there.

        A little farther away but still walkable and reaching the top of your budget if they don't drink and order wisely would be Hamersley's.

          That kind of money will go far at Coda, which is an easy walk, a casual but nice-looking bar/restaurant that always has some decent vegetarian options. I'm also fond of their thoughtful, budget-priced wine list and pretty good cocktails. Menu here: http://codaboston.com/dinner

              Be aware that Coda does not take reservations. I've rarely had to wait very long for a table there, though.
