Recently I had the opportunity to dine at Sean McClain's new Chicago restaurant, Green Zebra, which focuses on vegetables but is not vegetarian. I really like his approach, and it has led me to wonder whether I should try Greens after all, or if there are other creative and chef-driven vegetable-centric restaurants in SF? The Greens menu on line still reflects a Moosewood (or Greens) era sensibility to me, with pita this, pasta that, curry the other. Plus it features winter vegetable items and while presumably the web site is out of date that too suggests a less-than-contemporary approach. I am not a vegetarian but would like to know more places that consider and present vegetables as more than an afterthought or enhancement. Incidentally, I have not been to Slanted Door at the new location but I don't generally care for lemongrass, cilantro, coconut, rice paper, and other flavors I associate with Vietnamese-inflected food....
