Vegetarian-friendly Restaurant Week Options?

Dear all,

As a vegetarian, some of my best meals have been eaten in Manhattan (Kajitsu, Gobo, Northern Spy Food Co, 10 Downing, The Green Table, Otto and such) So I'm not a food snob but I'm looking for flavorful, preferably local food. I will confess that I am often underwhelmed by the paltry vegetarian options at most places. So far DBGM seems the most promising. Suggestions welcome!

The Green Table
75 9th Ave, New York, NY 10011

10 Downing
10 Downing Street, New York, NY 10014

Northern Spy Food Co.
511 E 12th St, New York, NY 10009

  1. I find it's always better to just get a la cart, since the veggie entree for R. Week is generally meh.

      Thanks veggieyummy - I'm starting to agree.

    2. I'm curious--what vegetarian dishes did you eat at 10 Downing? Their menu seems to be pretty meat-heavy.

        We went there for brunch this Spring when Shuna Lydon (eggbeater) was the pastry chef. Had the basket of breads (they let us pick if we wanted a sweet or savory selection) and the dutch pancake. It was all very good. Full disclosure - we were there almost exactly at 10:00 am and caught them before things got super-busy. Absolute value for money. The coffee was fresh, the service was unhurried, and the whole experience was totally charming.
