This was a sidebar discussion in another thread that I wanted to break off to hopefully get some more feedback.
My husband's almost done with a tough semester of MBA classes and I'd like to go celebrate somewhere in Baltimore that we've not tried before. I'm vegetarian and he's not, so this makes things a little tough. Most menus I've browsed lately seem to have little to nothing I can eat, at best some lame pasta dish with no protein. Haven't kept up to date with all the new restaurant openings in the last few years so I'm hoping there's something out there I just don't know about. Basic criteria:
*We should both be able to eat happily, so I'm not interested in either a pure vegetarian restaurant or a steakhouse.
*At least one vegetarian entree with more thought put into it than pasta with sauteed vegetables. Serious pet peeve.
*Not overly expensive, hopefully $75 or less excluding drinks.
*Any cuisine is fine, but nothing seafood heavy. That being said, would prefer to skip Indian.
*Nothing in Little Italy, please.
*Good food is more important than ambiance, but we'd prefer somewhere we didn't have to scream to be heard.
Places that might otherwise fit the bill that we've been before, so are not interested in:
Abbey Burger Bistro
Sadly, I don't have high hopes that such a place exists, but if anyone can steer me in the right direction, it's the Baltimore Chowhounds. Thanks!
