Vegetables please!

Hello everybody,

My wife and I are heading to Paris in February and woud love to hear your suggestions for any bistros and restaurants that serve vegetarian meals which you have enjoyed. It could be a steakhouse for all we care, as long as there is one noteworthy vegetarian meal on the menu.

Let me explain:
Although my wife is strictly vegetarian (no seafood, cheese & eggs are OK), it is not a moral choice, but a taste thing - she simply doesn't like to eat meat. We both, however feel "ripped off" if lunch consists of biodynamic carrots and lettuce :) Generally speaking, whenever we try a "vegetarian" restaurant we both hate the whole experience (I hope I am not offending anybody here). Vegetarian restaurants, in our humble experience, tend to focus on being "healthy" and strike us as overly ascetic, joy-less and certainly tasteless! She is not worried about calories or organic certificates, she simply wants delicious food that is made of vegetables!

We have spent a fair bit of time in Paris, know the city well and are not afraid to travel around for a meal by metro, velib or taxi, so please let us know of your hidden gems wherever they may be.

Thank you in advance!
