I am looking for a restaurant for a birthday dinner for a friend in the East Village/Union Square area. A lot of us are vegetarian. Our first choice Dirt Candy won't be able to accommodate all of us on the day of. Our safety spot Counter has great food, but the loud lounge music they always seem to be blasting isn't really our style, so I am looking for suggestions. It doesn't have to be a vegetarian restaurant, just vege/vegan friendly, and on the level of Dirt Candy and Counter quality wise, and vibe similar to Brown, or Good World (R.I.P) maybe..? Please help! Thank you.
