She and my dad are getting older and the next time they visit, I wanna be able to bring them to spots that won't stress them out health-wise but are still good as hell in the flavor/satisfaction department. I live in BK but they're gonna be staying at their bud's pied-a-terre in the Tudor City/UN area and I would love some of yall's reccs for NON "roll-out-the-door" type sit down spots, lunch or dinner, fancy/non fancy. :geek:

fwiw, all of us thought Souen was bland, over-priced garbage when I took them there for some "macrobiotics"

This is where I would suggest Angelica Kitchen but they had to go and close. Assholes.

I'm actually looking for something similar, date night vegetarian/healthy. Is ABCV really that bad?

Kajitsu could be a good option for super-healthy families looking to splash out on something that's also interesting and in Manhattan. I've been once and really liked it and keep meaning to return...

EDIT: Narcissa in the Standard east is good and veggie centric too but the carrot wellington is sort of "roll out the door."

Abcv doesn’t deserve the hype, but it’s super sceney. I was just super annoyed because once I got on the train I was immediately hungry again. What about ladybird
