Winterlicious LOVE only - Where are the MUST eats?

We've done many Winterlicious and Summerlicious meals over the past 5 years but now the only one we go for is North 44 - delicious food and excellent service that does not make you feel like a second class citizen for coming during Winterlicious.

Segar (on Bayview)

We've now been to Segar 3 times (a Wednesday night and two Friday nights) and each time it has been very good. I think it will become our neighbourhood go-to place. Went once with vegetarian daughter and they put together a really nice custom veggie plate for her main with lots of interesting things. Favorites include squash soup, fritters, duck breast (had it twice - served with a hot crispy dosa), and the lemon desert (lemon curd between two layers of light pastry sheets - light and not too big, not too sweet, just perfect). Only dish we weren't impressed with was the chicken livers - bit overcooked and not that flavourful. Very gracious and charming service, and really good prices. Hope they survive, two of the three times it was not very busy.

Dilemna - Gresca, Gelonch with a vegetarian???

After scouring these boards for our upcoming trip to Spain (as I do at home and wherever we travel), we really, really want to try the tasting menus at Gresca and Gelonch. However, typically you have to order for the table and my teenage daughter, who although she has a very spohisticated palate, does not eat meat, poutlry or fish, though she will eat eggs, cheese, non-vegetarian broths, etc. What to do? I can't leave her behind while we go out - is there any chance they will make her the dishes and just leave out the meat? Would that offend them if we ask?
