Danube - Vegetarians NOT Welcome

Michael | Oct 28, 2000 08:12 PM

I stopped by Danube today to look at the menu and stepped inside to ask about vegetarian entrees since my wife does not eat meat. When I asked if they had a vegetarian menu, i was rudely informed that yes they did occasionally make a vegetarian entree but that she did not know what they were. She then continued, "we are a meat and fish place". I could tell that they did not want my business, nor will they be getting it.

This was a very shocking experience compared to the other high class restaurants in NYC like Le Cirque, Daniel, etc. that have bent over backwards to accommodate our food restrictions.

It seems that fewer and fewer restaurants are offering vegetarian items on the standard menu. Is this because they now have vegetarian menus or do they not want the business?
