Vegetarians on Vacation

Oh and any local farms or places where we can buy local cheese?

Vegetarians on Vacation

Thank you everyone for your great suggestions! I am slowly going through all of them. I really appreciate all of your help.

One more thing: We would love to check out some food trucks! Know of any great LA ones?

Chilaquiles sound delicious! Any specific vietnamese or chinese places we should go to?

Oh and we have a car, so distance isn't an issue.

I guess anything under 10 bucks for a decent sized plate of food.

Vegetarians on Vacation

Awesome, thank you!
I checked out the menus for these places and they are on our way high end of the budget. Any cheap eats you know of? Food trucks are cool too!

Vegetarians on Vacation

Hi everybody! It's my first time here on the LA Board!

Well, my family and I are visiting LA for a week in the summer and wanted to know what are the DEFINITE spots we need to hit up. We haven't planned any neighborhood visits or anything like that. We are staying in Chino Hills, but that's about all we know!

A little about us:
Family of 4
Vegetarians (dairy ok)
Pretty adventurous eaters
We like soy products (as in fake meat) but don't HAVE to have it
We are on a tight budget, so this should be cheap to moderate eats
A bunch of small places we can hit up is better than splurging on one expensive meal
No Indian food please! (We are Indian, so home cooking is not what we want!) But anything else is fine.
We also love fresh fruit, so if you know of any farmers markets or local vendors we should check out, let me know!
Oh, and a we're a family of drinkers, so any good cheap bars (love cocktails, mojitos, margeritas, hard cider)

Thank you all so much!

Thanks for these suggestions! I will check them out. And yeah, the Aviary is too expensive.

Yeah, Francesca's is awesome. We've already been a bunch of times however.

I wish I knew where to take her! I'm looking for a nice Italian place with vegetarian options (entrees are about 15 bucks) if you have any suggestions.

Celebratory Drinks

Hey everyone,
So I am planning a dinner in the city (not sure about location yet) and I would like to go to a nice/fun/cool bar afterwards for drinks. I'm going to be with my family, so it's got to be appropriate for an older crowd. I am looking for nothing expensive, but it should have a cool atmosphere. Something unique. We're cocktail and wine fans, so something with a good drinks menu is a must. Outdoor/rooftop bars won't work because this is going to be in late November. So...any ideas?

Update: I just found out she actually does want Italian. So, italian, entre about $15, pretty location/view/space, vegetarian.

Thanks for the suggestion! I've been to this place before. I guess I am looking for a place with a little more of a wow factor. And it doesn't have to be italian, but should have some vegetarian options.

Thanks for the suggestion! This would be a the top of my budget, but it's a good option that I'll look into.

Vegetarian BDay Dinner

Hey guys!
So my sister's birthday is coming up and my family wants to take her out for dinner. She loves pizza (not deep dish though, more the brick oven stuff), Italian, or really most things. Not Indian though. She is a foodie, so she has been to/heard of most of the famous places.
Can you think of anything that is:

-off the beaten track
-not too expensive
-vegetarian friendly
-not casual
-a unique dining experience? either a great location or the restaurant does something unique?

Any ideas for where I can take her? I know its a long wish list, but if you can think of something even close, I would love the help! Oh, and we live in the northwest suburbs, so anything there or loop/north chicago would be best. Thank you!

2 Days in NYC - What's can't we miss?

Hey everyone,
I'm going to NYC soon and will be in the city for 2 days. My sister and I have explored Manhattan a decent amount but have never been to the boroughs. We were thinking of focusing on Queens or Brooklyn. We're vegetarians and don't want to spend much (cheap eats are the best!) but that's basically our only restrictions. So, what can't we leave without missing?
