Veggie Options in Northern VA?

He there everyone! I'm fairly new to the boards, so please forgive me if this has already been answered before (and please redirect me...).

Although I am not myself a vegetarian, my wife is and we have been running into a problem of finding limited options for her when eating out. She's not very keen on having a salad or steamed vegetables every time we go out, so we've been experimenting around. Ethnic foods seem to be the best option much of the time, but even then she's usually limitted to 2-3 options at best. Restaurants don't have to be purely vegetarian, but just a decent selection and good food. (The Helmand in Baltimore, for example, is amazing, but an hour drive to get there relegates it to a 2-3 times only per year location)

We've tried Sunflower Restaurant (in Vienna?) and she liked it, although I was not as impressed. Are there any standouts in the McLean/Arington/Vienna/etc. areas that have good selections of vegetarian dishes? Eggs and milk products are ok, but seafood is still not a vegetable, apparently. I live near northern Arlington and I don't mind driving 20-30 minutes for a good place, so Bethesda and Reston are also fair game, for example.

I realize that this is a very broad question with a broad area, but I just want to know if people want to chime in on their own personal favorite veggie dishes and veggie-friendly places around here.
