In the mood for vegetarian but your dining companion is a die-hard carnivore? Take them to Karyn's on Green and convert them. This is not your typical vegan restaurant. The dining room, with its soaring vaulted ceiling and gorgeous chandeliers, is steak-house sleek and contemporary. The wine list is mostly sustainable and organic, but always delicious. And the food is ridiculously good.
In the mood for a crab cake? Karyn's version rivals anything that came naturally in a shell. We love starting with the raw cheese platter, and frankly, we could eat a
vat of the red pepper gazpacho. Other must-try dishes include the "chicken" legs and the Shepherd's Pie. Oh, and we would be remiss if we didn't tell you about the
roasted foraged mushrooms with polenta cake. Check out the wall of famous vegetarians, including Steve Jobs, Upton Sinclair, and Reese Witherspoon, and you know you're in good company. This is the Gibson's of vegetarian cuisine.
