CD asks via Twitter:
Can anybody recommend Albany area restaurants that use local ingredients and have a veggie friendly menu?
We checked to clarify that CD was looking for vegetarian options. Or as CD responded:
Vegetarian options from local sources. #NoBagSalads
It seems more restaurants are offering vegetarian options, though the choices aren't always engaging. That said, some spots have given it a surprising shot. 677 Prime, the fancy pants steakhouse, recently had a vegetarian tasting menu -- we tried it, and while not every course was a hit, there were some interesting dishes. (The best dish involved carrots prepared a few different ways -- it was really good.)
And that points to one of the reasons to be curious about vegetarian options, even if you're not a vegetarian: going meat free often prompts a different, more interesting take on food.
So we're curious to hear about people's vegetarian favorites. Got a suggestion for CD? Please share!
