Ceidleh - Sorry for you lack of a sense of humor. If I was worried about collecting posts I'd reclaim my old name attached to an old e-mail address SAnParis of which many are attached. This moniker is fairly new. I guess it really isn't a joke, if it is true. Lighten up & perhaps you could enjoy this board (& life) a little more.

Pure Food and Wine practices "stove-free" cooking but the food is very good and the restaurant has a wonderful atmosphere with lovely Garden and outdoor dining and good wine selection. This is my pick for best Vegan/Vegetarian.

Tabla has a vegetarian tasting menu, so I think that's a good choice. Surprisingly, there aren't that many vegetarian choices on either the Tabla or Bread Bar menu (no main courses at Tabla, for example).

Kittichai (Thai) has a few vegetarian choices.

Vatan is closed at present, as I think you've already discovered.

The menu at Hangawi contains well- spiced and even fiery dishes, as is common in Korean cuisine. Their current menu lists "spicy grilled todok," "spicy chili mushroom," "beancurd in kimchi and vegetables in spicy sauce." etc. It also includes some very mild and simple dishes, like bimbaps, so first timers to the restaurant should discuss the menu with the server, because most of it is unique.

As for cocktails, I have never had any of its Soju cocktails, but I assume they are made with genuine soju, a particuarly rice alcohol. Hangawi also has a beer and wine list.

But there is no question that it's quiet.

"If you like to travel to exotic places, consider a trip to 32nd Street ... The oversize door is an entrance to another world, an invitation to a place where nothing is familiar... We live in a time when each encounter with food can be a global experience. But HanGawi reminds you of the exotic nature of each bite as you take it. In the process, time seems to vanish. It is rare to be able to travel so far so fast, so inexpensively..."

Terra Veg ( ) is a site specifically for rating vegetarian restaurants in NYC & other cities. They also rate the level of vegetarian-friendliness of standard restaurants, but I think you are right that it would be nice for your friend to have her day her way. Hangawi and Gobo are both rated highly.

There are a number of vegetarian Indian restaurants in the Gramercy area (Lex or 3rd ave, in the upper 20s and low 30s). Some are more upscale than others. Not sure if that would be up her alley, but we love all the ones we've been to!
