Vegetarian friendly in Buenos Aires + El calafate reccos

We went to Casa Felix, which was a great experience and great food as well. My husband enjoyed his vegetarian entree more than I did my fish though, so if you do go there, you may want to be vegetarian for a day :)
the other places did have a couple of vegetarian dishes on the menu, so while not necessarily memorable, she will be able to get something.

Vegetarian friendly in Buenos Aires + El calafate reccos

My husband and I will be in Buenos Aires for two days .. too short, unfortunately. He’s vegetarian, and I’m looking for recommendations on restaurants where he can have an enjoyable meal (and not just a random pasta dish thrown together to ‘accommodate’ vegetarians), but at the same time, I don’t miss out on a good BA restaurant experience.

Casa Felix has a vegetarian menu – would you recommend that? Would you recommend a puerta cerrada as a key BA experience we shouldn’t miss, or stick to regular restaurants since we’re just there for a couple of days (I went to the equivalent of a puerta cerrada in HK and loved the experience, so am leaning towards it, esp given Felix’s veg menu). Casa Mun and Salt Shaker aren’t open the days we’re there unfortunately.

Also, we’ll be in El Calafate for two nights – I’ve heard Don Pichon and Las Tablitas come up. Any views on those or other restaurants?

My other picks from the boards are below – any comments or suggestions are welcome.
Parilla: Don Julio, La Cabrera, Parilla Pena – if you had to pick just one, which would it be?
Lunch: choripan/empanadas – any specific place I should get these from, or any neighbourhood panaderia?
Gelato: Un Altra Volta, Persicco, Arkakao

Thanks in advance!

Kid friendly lunch recommendation

No availability at LV unfortunately (am looking for a place for tomorrow).

I meant the Blue Ribbon Bakery.

Kid friendly lunch recommendation

I'm looking for suggestions for a good weekday lunch place for 4 adults, a 4 year old and a 1 year, which also has good vegetarian options. TriBeCa, soho, west village, union square would be ideal. Would locanda verde or blue ribbon make sense?

Recommendation for birthday cake - mango or other fruit-based

Thank you all for the suggestions .. I'm going to go with red ribbon bake shop this time, but will file away the others for future reference .. fingers crossed!

Thank you! I'll check them both out, though I think lady M may be more than I'd like to spend.. Thanks again!

Recommendation for birthday cake - mango or other fruit-based

I'm looking for a recommendation for a birthday cake for my husband .. Fresh and light rather than rich and creamy, and not too sweet. Ideally a mango-based cake, or if that's hard to find, another fruit-based one like strawberry or passionfruit. Any views on the strawberry cake at lulu cake boutique? Thanks in advance for the input!
