Bogota w/Herbivore & Omnivore

crunchy | May 10, 2011 07:18 PM

Hi all,

We're traveling to Bogota for our first time next week, for a grand total of 4 days.

One of us is a vegetarian and not a huge food freak but the other is an omnivorous complete food freak who travels largely for the purpose of eating, preferably to sample local fare.

We could use some tips for four dinners, four lunches and maybe a breakfast or two. We're staying at the JW Marriott (for free on points) so something around there would be nice but definitely not necessary. Both of us get about as much pleasure from the people watching as we do from food. The young and fashionable crow or the ordinary local types would be more compelling than the upscale business and super fancy scene.

-Special veg. or veg-friendly birthday dinner, with great people watching (first night), but not super upscale fine dining.

-Authentic Colombian where the veg. can find SOMETHING on the menu aside from plain rice or similar.

-Anything else that stands out, that but must have at least one option for the herbivore.

-We both love to go out to bars and maybe clubs - often gay but preferably mixed crowds - less mainstream more "indie" or "alternative" (whatever that means). Ideas?

Thanks for any help you can offer.
