One of the best vegetarian restaurants we’ve ever been is the Red Bamboo
140 W 4th St
(between 6th Ave & MacDougal St)
New York, NY 10012
Neighborhood: Greenwich Village
All dishes look like “normal” dishes with meat or fish, but all taste very very good and all of them are vegetarian or vegan.
If you ever want to convince your friends that it’s possible to live without meat, then bring them to the Red Bamboo – and please post their comments afterwards.
