I'm meeting a small group (we'll be four women, various ages) for theatre with dinner before, and my cousin is vegetarian. Since she is visiting from SF, the event is really about getting together with her, and I'd like to find a place that is very vegetarian- friendly (it doesn't have to be vegetarian) with very good food. I've never been to Utsav, but have seen it recommended here often, so I'm thinking about that, since Indian places usually offer lots of veggie options. All ethnic food is fine.
The last time she visited, I took her and my mom to Lakruwana, which they both loved, but I believe that place had a fire and closed (sigh, it had very nice and extremely reasonable Sri Lankan food). Any suggestions much appreciated-- 44th St. and thereabouts. Many thanks!
