Nice dinner for Veggies and Omnivores

My family is going out for a birthday celebration dinner for my brother-in-law and me, and my dear step-dad suggested Louie's 106. I searched the board and didn't find many mentions of it. The perfection (or lack thereof) of the food doesn't matter much to me; I am touched that SD feels strongly that he wants to take us to a nicer place than the usual mid-range restaurant, so I would not suggest a change of venue, except...

We do like to do lunch when we have these get-togethers, and on the weekends Louie's is only open for dinner. The larger potential problem is that I looked at their menu online and the meatless options are scant to non-existent. Of the probable nine who will attend, we have one vegetarian and one vegan who doesn't eat wheat.

It is my experience and belief that a good restaurant is usually happy to put together a lovely vegetarian or vegan meal upon request; however, in the past these two women have not always wanted to ask. Don't get me started on that.

Can anyone suggest a place that has a lovely setting, upscale food, is open for lunch on the weekend, and has some vegetarian/vegan options that are on the menu or generally a readily available off the menu special? (Not Eastside Cafe, we've gone there a lot and are looking for a change.)

Thanks in advance!
