Best new ethnic restaurant in Boston area?

I'm looking for nominations for the best new(ish) ethnic restaurant in the Boston area. I'm driving to Boston on Sunday for a movie and want to try someplace new. It must be vegetarian friendly.
Thanks for any and all suggestions.

My favorite new 'ethnic' spot in the area is Bronwyn, doubly so because of the total lack of decent German food anywhere around here. Most of their specialties are meat-focused, but you can still enjoy their huge pretzels, the house-milled bread bowl, the Kartoffelkäse, borscht, gruner salat, Rebekuchen, the kale Pierogi, the spaetzle, etc.
Thanks for this recommendation! Bronwyn is new to me but I'm glad to know about. Looking at the menu, it does have a few vegetarian main courses. Not sure German food is what I want on a 95-degree day, but I will go eventually and will inform students in my Geography of Food class about it. It's also a bit pricey. Main courses are $19 and up.
I don't think it's a "new" restaurant, but as they used to say in the Used Car business, it's maybe "new to YOU" :) My favorite "ethnic" place in Boston right now is Myung Dong 1st Avenue, a Korean Soju bar in Allston. There is plenty of vegetarian-friendly fare on the menu and the drinks are awesome. They also open all of the front windows in this weather so it's quite pleasant.
