Vegetarian Picks for Columbus Restaurant Week
I am really excited about Columbus Restaurant Week. I am telling everyone I know. I even gave my brother in law some Dine Originals gift certificates for watching our dogs in the hopes that he will go support restaurants next week. There's only one problem. I don't eat meat. Fixed price meals usually don't work out so well for me. I rarely ask for exceptions for prix fixe menus because the whole idea is to serve a standardized meal.
However, among the 42 restaurants participating in restaurant week there are some excellent meat-free choices. Here's my guide for vegetarian* choices:
The Best - three vegetarian courses:
Barcelona - 7 course tapas meal, vegetarian option
Betty's - all choices appear to be meatless
Black Creek Bistro - four courses including mushroom stew I've been wanting to try
Bodega - Bruschetta, veggie pizza and panini, beer
Cafe Corner - choose two items plus dessert, many breakfasts are meatless and a few sandwiches too
Elevator - salad, vegetable strudel entree, dessert
Handkes - vegetarian option available
Inn & Spa at Cedar Falls - appetizer basket, salad, roasted red pepper linguini, dessert (four courses for $30 sounds like a great deal)
Katzingers - 2 small Vegetarian sandwiches, two sides, dessert
LaScala - salad, eggplant parm, and tiramisu (two diners for $30!)
Maca Cafe - Two veggie courses and wine
Pistachia Vera - mmmmm....tastes of 7 meat free sweets...
Press Grill - Salad, pizza, and dessert, two people for just $15
Rigsby's - skip pancetta on salad or hope for meat-free soup du jour, veggie pasta entree, dessert
Surly Girl - all choices appear meatless
Tasi - Breakfast or Lunch dish + drinks, $15 for two
Tip Top - salad, veggie roast entree, dessert
Tratorria Roma - manicotti, fresh greens, glass of wine
Tutto Vino - 3 veggie pizza choices plus salad and cheese course
Worthington Inn - salad, garden vegetable plate, dessert
Z Cucina - salad, pasta with pomodoro sauce or eggplant parm, tiramisu
Good Possibility -
Alanas - meatless salad, risotto du jour could be meatless
*My definition of vegetarian is no red meat, white meat, or fish. Eggs and dairy OK.
I still can't decide where we'll go. I'm thinking Trattoria Roma for lunch one day and something else for dinner another day. Maybe I'll even arrange a girl's night out at Surly Girl or Tip Top.
Have you decided where you're going yet?
