A vegetarian at Minetta Tavern?
Taking my husband to Minetta so he can enjoy some meat. I, however, am vegetarian. Honestly, I don't mind if all I can eat are the desserts, but please do share if anyone has had an experience with vegetarian options/modifications there. I was thinking the pasta za za sans pancetta and the asparagus or omelette appetizers, possibly, and some tasty potatoes (especially the Annas!) provided they aren't all made with duck fat.
Thanks so much!

Watch out for potatoes with Duck Fat. I'm a veggie who lives two blocks away and was well treated opening week, but frankly it's just not a great place for a vegetarian. I usually do have the Zaza without the meat. The souffles are good, as are some of the side veggies.
I went to Minetta last week and thought it was AMAZING. I'm a meat eater but my mom is a vegetarian and ordered the za za without pancetta. The waiter was more than accommodating and offered to have the chef prepare a vegetarian dish not on the menu for her which I thought was really nice. The cote de boeuf is a must-order and the bone marrow is one of the more interesting things I've ever tried. We had the oxtail and foie gras appetizer and I thought it was ok. I wish there had been more foie and less oxtail. Definitely one of my favorite meals in the city in the past few months!
