i'm trying to pick a spot for a birthday dinner with a party of 4. we're looking to dress up (suits and black evening dresses) and are looking for a place where that won't seem out of place... with great food. the trick is, 3 of 4 in the group are vegetarians. the 1 meat-eater is myself the bday boy and i'd like to eat meat. most of this tier of restaurant (per se, daniel, jean georges, del posto, morimoto) don't seem to have any or many veggie entrees. and having multiple veggies... we would like more than one option on the menu.
so what are the top, fancy-schmancy, special evening restaurants in town with a good veggie selection. the best i can come up with are devi and kittichai and they don't seem quite in the big night category.
