i realize this is kind of like looking for sailboats in the desert...
looking for casual restaurants for SIT-DOWN lunch w/ vegan-friendly options in the Financial District. DOES NOT have to be a vegetarian restaurant. any casual dining with vegetable and grain-based options -- Middle eastern, Asian, Mexican or just general fare..
i've lived in NYC many years, but do not know that area very well for restaurants.
(i know Terri is there -- isn't that only take-out though?)
