special lunch in Oakland, help me with my challenge, please..

A favorite co-worker is moving on, and I have been charged with finding a suitably nice spot for his going away lunch....Here are the parameters: inexpensive and/or moderately priced, some vegetarian options, plenty of room or will take a reservation for ten to fifteen persons, walking distance (as much as ten blocks ok, so a long walk or short drive acceptable) from the Kaiser Center,(ie 20th and Lakeshore) and preferably not Asian, which in large part is really what makes this request a challenge..we usually do similar events at Huynh and would really like to try something new....Any suggestions? Ideas on Grand Ave would be particularly appreciated, since I never get over there at lunch...Verbena is not an option, since we are doing another office party for another occaison there this Friday...

above all, good food so that the departing co-worker will remember us fondly! thanks for any help you can give me!
