We're going out with good friends this weekend who are vegetarians (but do eat eggs and dairy). We've done Italian with them, Moroccan with them, Indian with them, Ethiopian with them, and are thinking we'd like a more "conventional" Cal-French or Cal-Asian kind of cuisine that has more than just the obligatory one vegetarian dish on the menu.
I know that Melisse has a vegetarian tasting menu, but we're not thinking that pricey. Obviously we'd also like some nice meat and fish selections too for our carnivorous palates.
Italian suggestions would be fine too.
