Vegetarian friend coming to town
I have a good friend visiting this weekend who's a rather picky vegetarian but enjoys good food. However, my boyfriend and I are hearty carnivores so I'm looking for a great restaurant that will be a treat for us all. Cost isn't a real issue but nothing drastic. Downtown preferably.
We've had multiple tasty vegetarian meals at Foreign & Domestic and they certainly have enough meat based appetizers/entrees on the menu. It's about 10 minutes north of downtown, but worth the drive.
Shoreline Grill might be just what you're looking for. Mostly seafood with a separate all-vegetarian menu, too. It would probably help to call ahead and find out which dishes can be made entirely vegan or vegan+fish. Great water view and you can see the bats fly at sundown.
Some other possibilities:
Clay Pit - Indian - vegan items marked on menu
Koriente - Healthy Asian leaning heavily toward Korean - LOTS of vegan options, plus meat.
Karibu - Ethiopian - Most Ethiopian places will have stuff for both you and your friend
Jezebel's - Fancy-ish, always have at least one entree that can be made vegan and will do something special if you call ahead.
Asti Trattoria - Has a number of things that can be made vegan, but call ahead.
If you feel like going out for Sat or Sun brunch, maybe try Mother's Cafe. They have omelets and all the usual brunch fare with a sort of Tex-Mex twist, but also lots of brunch items that are totally vegan.
