Vegetarian suggestions within walking distance of Park St T

I'm looking for suggestions that won't be exceptionally expensive and are a short walk from Park Street for dinner. Last time out we went to Oleana but I'm hoping to spend a little less and also stick to Boston. Got any suggestions?

  1. Not sure what type of atmosphere you're looking for, but I really love Sultan's Kitchen right behind Fanueil Hall. It's Turkish and they have tons of different vegetarian mezes that they can put together on a plate for you.

    Grezzo in the NE is raw vegan but I think it's pretty pricey.

    Artu and Toscano on Charles Street have nice Italian vegetarian options.

      Is Sultan's Kitchen ok for dinner? Most reviews seem to be for lunch and say it is pretty tiny. Can you get a table to eat there? Food sounds good and pretty interesting.
      The Italian ones you suggested sound like vegetarian is not exactly emphasized. It would be one thing if fish or chicken was an option but my friend doesn't do them.
      Is Lala Rokh any good?

        It's open until 8 on the weeknights. I go for dinner and it's fine. There's always tables. It's the type of place where you go to the counter and order, then bring the food to your table. Very casual but food is delicious.

        The Italian ones, vegetarian is not "emphasized", but many options exist.

        I personally think Lala Rokh is overrated, but that's just me.

    2. While certainly not a vegetarian-heavy restaurant, Teatro has some really nice vegetarian small plates in the "piattini" and "caldo" sections of the menu. The vegetable polpetti (with a killer red sauce) and the white bean dip were delicious and generously sized, and my son really enjoyed his entree of spinach and mascarpone ravioli with creme fraiche. They also have a couple of pizza selections, and some nice salads, too.

      1. As a vegetarian, I've done well at both Grotto and Marliave.

        1. Erbaluce typically has several good vegetarian options; plus, every time I've been there with my vegetarian wife they've been very accommodating about modifying menu options to be vegetarian.
