Restaurant suggestions for vegetarian & non-vegetarian near Copley Plaza?

I'll be in Boston in early October for a conference and will be traveling with a colleague who is a vegetarian. (She'll do eggs and dairy. She also fairly adventurous Indian, Asian, etc.)

I like everything -- steaks, seafood, any kind of ethnic food...

Any thoughts on a great place for both of us to enjoy?

  1. In the South End, Myers and Chang has lots of options for both of you and the food is quite good. In Chinatown, we've had good luck with our vegetarian son at Taiwan Cafe. Teatro on Tremont St. has several veggie choices on it's small plates menu and we've always been happy with the food.

    If you're willing to cross the river into Cambridge, two other places that would work are Oleana, which leans toward Turkish flavors and has a terrific vegetarian tasting option, and the East Coast Grill, which has a changing vegetarian plate that is interesting, delicious and an incredible bargain (it's a very generous meal).

    East Coast Grill and Raw Bar
    1271 Cambridge St, Cambridge, MA 02139

    177 Tremont Street, Boston, MA 02111

    134 Hampshire St., Cambridge, MA 02139

    1. Vlora on Boylston Street. Not vegetarian but plenty of vegetarian options on the menu. Mediterranean/Italian/Albanian cuisine.

      545 Boylston Street, Boston, MA 02116

      1. PIcco Pizzeria in the South End is an easy walk or a very short cab ride, and is very good.

        1. Welcome in advance. Hope this might be helpful. You will be in/nearest the areas of Copley Sq/ Back bay and the South End:

          1. Close to you - +1 for Vlora and also for Kashmir - Indian - on Newbury Street. Chinatown is just two short T-stops or a fifteen-minute walk.
