Mr. Chow at the W Hotel is for those who are not on a budget and/or are celebrating a special occasion. The food is very good, but you pay for the name brand and the outstanding service. Mr. Chow offers a number of vegetarian options both on and off the menu (just ask). I especially loved the vegetable lettuce wraps with crispy seaweed and the mapo tofu.

Wine Depot & Bistro 555 is a Mediterranean restaurant attached to an adorable wine shop in a non-touristy part of South Beach. You can dine inside the shop or outside in a romantic courtyard. This place is really for wine lovers, but the food is not bad, and there are several vegetarian options on the menu, including Spanish tortilla, hummus, and cheese plates. I especially liked the gazpacho soup and the mushroom ravioli. Dessert is also recommended!

5 Napkin Grill, originally from New York, is located on Lincoln Road and serves the best veggie burger I have ever tasted. The restaurant's description on OpenTable says it's "the rare burger restaurant where vegetarians and carnivores are equally at home." I not only love this motto, but I found it to be true. This burger joint also serves vegetable sushi rolls, which are fantastic.
