Upscale Vegetarian Help

Hi All,

My 5th anniversary is coming up and I am looking for place to take my vegetarian wife out to dinner in the city. Any suggestions on romantic and upscale vegetarian restaurants or non-veg restaurants with vegetarian tasting menus?

Thanks so much for any suggestions.

  1. If money is no concern your choices are wide open. My GF is a vegetarian, I am not, and almost every high end restaurant in NYC has accommodated her. Some restaurants, Per Se, Daniel, and Picholine to name a few, already have a vegetarian menu/vegetarian tasting menu.

    1. HanGawi has a very imaginative vegetarian Korenan menu in a stunning, peaceful space. I'm not a vegetarian, but this has become one of my favorites for a change of pace.

      1. I am a veg for 35 yrs with occasional fish lapses. If I were being taken out for a special dinner I would rather go to a fancy all veg restaurant than to a restaurant that is mainly meat and fish with one or two veg entrees. My experience is that the fine restaurants are much more attentive to the meat and fish meals than the veg ones. Also I love to go somewhere where I can choose from lots of things on the menu.

        1. How about Kajitsu?
