My grandfather is coming into the city and wants to take me to a very nice dinner. He made a reservation at DB Bistro. However, I'm a vegetarian, and they have 0 vegetarian options on their dinner menu (this is a pet peeve of mine -- in New York City, you can't have just ONE option??? But anyway...). I called and they said they "could accommodate," but often when that happens you end up with a $35 plate of grilled vegetables...plus I feel awkward (I'm not really that comfortable in fancy places to begin with -- it's a little out of my league!).
I'd really prefer to go to a nice place that has even just one vegetarian option on the menu. He is open to suggestions from me, but I'd have to come up with something solid. We have been to Le Bernardin before and I LOVED that, but I think he wants to go somewhere new. Can anyone recommend something to fit this bill?
Location: We're going to theater after, so midtown would be ideal.
(I know, I know -- I could have far worse problems!)
