HELP!!! B-day vegetarian dinner

I'm wracking my brains for a good spot to take my adult vegetarian daughter for her b-day dinner tomorrow. Oleana is fully booked. Only other place I can think of with more than one veggie option is Helmand. Italian is okay, but "not boring red-sauce, Mom..." and no Japanese.

  1. How about Craigie On Main for their Chef's Whim? They always offer a vegetarian version and it is generally fantastic.

    1. Grezzo in the North End is a very nice raw/vegan restaurant.

      1. Ten Tables has a good vegetarian tasting option, very reasonably priced. You may both need to order it though, but as a non-veggie myself I would highly recommend it. In fact, of the times we've been to Ten Tables, I think we agreed the veggie tasting option was the best meal we had.

        1. Hope you read this is time...

          Grezzo (raw, vegan),
          Veggie Planet (Harvard Square)
          Martsa on Elm (Tibetan in Davis Square)
          Asmara (Eritrean/Ethiopian in Central Square)
          Elephant Walk (Cambodian/French with locations in Porter Square, Waltham, and Boston)

          If you want to go farther afield there's Life Alive in Lowell

          or Organic Garden Cafe in Beverly.

          1. UpStairs on the Square is celebration-dinner worthy, and is generally good to vegetarians/vegans. Myers & Chang is more casual and fun, and always has an excellent, big slate of options for vegetarians.
