Here is an excerpt of Craig LaBan's online chat of Jan. 3, 2017:
Reader: What are some of the best places in the city that are not strictly vegetarian but have menus that also cater to vegetarians? Obviously Vedge, but maybe places that are under the radar that you wouldn't think would fit the category?
These days, every great restaurant takes pride in vegetable cookery, in part due to the strong focus on seasonality and the increased availability of great ingredients.
C.L.: Definitely yes on Cresheim Valley Grain Exchange, which makes more effort than most, with a reverse side of its meat-centric menu that is completely veggie-friendly. A really nice place for Mount Airy. The acorn squash grain salad there is especially good.
Reader: Also, the menu at Hardena has excellent choices for vegetarian/vegan dishes and for the meat eaters you can take down their skewers and rendang.
