Although I previously had brunch at Le Diplomate (and LOVED it), I was reluctant to try it for dinner because the menu (all French, of course) offers very few vegetarian options and almost no vegan options. Of those, I tried the green salad and mushroom tart -- both delicious. The potatoes au gratin (not pictured here) also were delicious.
But my dining partner, who not only is vegetarian, but also is allergic to nuts and cheese, had a more difficult time finding menu items to enjoy. Not to worry! Le Diplomate is a true first-class restaurant, and like so many first-class restaurants (such as those in New Orleans, for example), the outstanding service includes special accommodations for vegetarians and others with dietary restrictions. Our server spoke to the chef, who happily cooked up this beautiful vegan entree of roasted mushrooms and cauliflower, sauteed spinach, and mashed potatoes.

From the service to the food, and from the wine list to the cute French decor, this place lives up to the hype, and vegetarians are not left out!
