Tapas for Vegetarians?

Hello Hounders,

I'm looking to take a first date to a tapas spot this Friday night, but I just found out that she's a vegetarian (I'm not quite sure I want to hound her about what that means exactly quite yet). I think the tapas vibe and atmosphere would be perfect, and I've been wanting to eat some good tapas for a long time. Are any of you vegetarians and have had positive experiences at a tapas bar? I'll be into the meat for sure, but want to make sure she has enough options that extend beyond cheese, bread, and fried peppers. If there don't seem to be good ones, I might scratch tapas and try something else. Oh, and also, I'd like this restaurant to be in walking distance to some good places to grab a drink afterwards that won't be overrun, although I understand on a Friday night that could prove difficult.

LES/Evillage places like Degustation, Sala, Xunta and SaborNY are in the running. I love Tia Pol and Boqueria, but there really aren't very many good bars in drinking distance. Any other recommendations for veggie tapas/drinks afterwards would be appreciated.
