  1. HAve you checked http://www.happycow.net/ - I use this while travelling to finge vegatarian options

    1. I dont think it's that close but there's a middle eastern restaurant in raleigh that's quite good.

      1. you will probably get alot more responses on the Southeast boards.......

        1. Sorry I live in Chapel Hill which is my (plentiful) veg hunting grounds, but I can tell you there are tons of veg South Indian restaurants in nearby Cary and Morrisville.

          Remedy Diner is in downtown Raleigh, but I've never been.

          1. Good south Indian restaurant about 3-4 exits down from Briar Creek off 540, http://saikrishnabhavan.com/.

            1. I don't make it over to Raleigh often, but last time I was there I had a very nice meal at Sitti and they have a fair number of vegetarian options. Here is a link to the menu: http://sitti-raleigh.com/menus.php

                The dish wasn't vegetarian but am still remembering a great fish entree we had there...they were using sea bass then but looks now like striped bass prepared the same way "pan-seared fillet with shitake mushrooms, tomato broth, garlic confit and white truffle polenta".

                  I'd definitely go back to Sitti, I was impressed with what I ate and liked the atmosphere.

              2. Oops looks like you have two threads on the same topic - chazzer replied with the same recommendation I had last week, sorry for the duplicate.

                  I think this thread had originally been posted on another board, Vegetarian perhaps, and somehow was moved here yesterday...

                2. I can't think of a single vegetarian restaurant in the Brier Creek area; some might be veg-friendly, but definitely not strictly vegetarian. Sai Krishna Bhavan and Tower Indian are nearby, in Morrisville, and both serve delicious, pure vegetarian Indian food; that's the closest I can name. Fiction Kitchen is in downtown Raleigh; quite a drive from almost-Durham Brier Creek, but it's 100% meatless and very good.
