Thanks. Should have specified I’m trying to give them recs for “normal” places rather than tasting menus. They’re dropping a kid to college and I don’t think the kid will enjoy something like Dirt Candy or EMP.
I went to ABCv last year. I’ve never spent that much on food, so it was a first-time experience for me. I don’t regret it at all because the overall experience was great, but looking back, the food was not as memorable as I’d hoped. (Except for the mochi-wrapped ice cream.) I don’t think it qualifies as “normal”, though. Here is the thread: Labor Day Weekend trip to NYC - #48 by bmorecupcake
I did a double take on that one. I’ve been to Nobu more times than I can remember and I would never have thought about it as a vegetarian friendly place. I love the eggplant with miso but other than the meh shishito peppers I could not recall any other vegetable dishes so I looked at the menu. There are other veg dishes so I learned something new. Not sure I am giving up my rock shrimp tempura in creamy spicy sauce though.
Just mentioned Miznon at Chelsea Market on another thread…Lots of delicious vegetarian options, but I’d go for a lunch, not a dinner place (though it is open through dinner if they are looking for something super casual).
