  1. Wow, thanks for all the quick responses! We will have a car, but I think that night we'd prefer to be within walking distance of the hotel. I'll look into these options. Has anyone ever heard of Galileo 101? They havea decent looking NYE menu. That weather sounds amazing! I can't wait!
  2. I just wanted to thank everyone who contributed to this thread, as I too will be bringing in the New Year in SD. Like Susan, I'm trying to find somewhere nice to have dinner before we bar-hop around the Gaslamp. We are actually staying at the Westgate, but I dont think their events are going to work for us - the difficulty being that I am a vegetarian. I have yet to find a good restaurant for New Yr's with veg options! I tried Rice at the W but they are booked. We're relatively young (29) so dont want anywhere too stuffy, but also not really into the loud club scene either... Any suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks
  3. I am heading there for the first time next week and am so excited! Has anyone tried the vegetarian tasting menu?
  4. Glad you enjoyed it! Those asparagus "fries" are totally addictive!
  5. I too recommend Isabella's. I prefer it over Jaleo. Delicious sangria and the asparagus sticks are yummy.
  6. I'm partial to Trattoria Sorrento, in Bethesda. www.trattoriasorrento.com It's owned by a nice Italian family, and while not quite the same as being there, it's the closest I've found. Amici Miei in Potomac is also pretty good. Authentic wood-oven pizzas.
  7. I think it's new. I saw some coupons for it in Clipper Magazine this month.
  8. DH and I go to Amina Thai quite a bit. So much better than the other ones around (tara thai, etc), and extremely good service! They deliver too, although it takes a little while for them to find you.
  9. I've been to Cafe Spice a couple of times. I think it's one of the better options in that area (over Rio Grande, Joe's Crab Shack, etc.). Granted that's not saying much. I don't think the food is necessarily as good as some other Indian restaurants in the area, but they have some options that other places don't. Their cocktails are very good.
  10. I'm heading to Pure this weekend on a trip up to NYC. Would love to here what they're offering now if anyone has been lately...
  11. Is there any luck for a vegetarian in Bermuda, or am I doomed to a week of pasta and pizza? Going there over Memorial Day weekend.
  12. Exactly. So I'm hoping this place isn't quite that bad, since I'm wearing jeans and a non-black, non-designer top.
  13. Did anyone ever check this place out? Going there with some girlfriends tonight. They usually do the Euro clubby thing so I'm hoping this is a little less pretentious.
  14. It used to be one of my favorite restaurants, although I haven't been since all the changes took place. And my opinion is based solely on their vegetarian options. Also, they had amazing mixed drinks, with fresh fruit. Sad to hear that things aren't the same now...
  15. I actually enjoy the Melting Pot. They have a pretty good vegetarian plate, although as most have said, the cheese and chocolate are the best part. They have a nice selection of martinis - the bartender at the Rockville one is pretty good. Went to the Dupont Circle location once, and while it is nicer decor, the service was awful. I think it's especially satisfying on a cold winter night, but expect to spend about 3 hours there, and yes, your clothes will smell. Kinda like if you go to a Japanese steakhouse.
