Does it have to be vegetarian or is very vegetarian-friendly OK?

Very vegetarian-friendly is fine. If possible, we’d like to err on the fancier side if that exists.

Maybe Evvia or Flea Street? Farther south there’s a dearth of upscale places.

I enjoyed manresa’s takeout. they do a daily family meal menu and there’s always a vegetarian option.

I would have mentioned Manresa but they dropped the vegetarian option from their regular menu a few years back. Looks like it’s still takeout only. No vegetarian option for the more elaborate and expensive weekly menu.
