Have a health-conscious cousin visiting from out of town. She is meeting my wife for lunch. Cousin is okay with vegan or vegetarian or salads or omelettes, etc. Of course, almost any restaurant can offer such choices but looking for something most closely aligned and with a decent ambience where they can sit and talk for awhile. Boundaries are 60-77th streets, bet 1st and Lex.
I've thought of East Pole and one of the Le Pain Quotidiens. Any other suggestions would be appreciated. I think Candle Cafe and Good Health Cafe lack the ambience and Candle 79 is beyond the boundary (albeit slightly).
Recommendations would be appreciated.
