Here are some of my favorite veg-friendly restaurants:

Bandung Indonesian
600 Williamson Street
http://www.bandungres...­

Very good, use a lot of tempe in vegetarian dishes The vegetarian ristofal (sp?) is a great assortment of sample dishes, which can be ordered vegetarian. This option is a bit expensive.

Tex Tubb's Taco Palace
2009 Atwood

It ain't Austin, but the tacos are pretty good.

Shish Cafe
5510 University Ave.

A little pricey but the salads are big and fresh. The Middleastern veggie pizza is spicy!

These all sound like great ideas. How about Pasquals? They have an amazing black bean chimichanga that will blow your mind away. I'd also like to through out there the idea of a picnic. Perhaps we may have to wait until spring for that sort of meeting, but that would be a great option for families - and then everyone could show off/ share their great recipes!

Be sure to check out vegmadison.com too!
Some folks are already aware of the site but I bet there are a few who aren't.

I'd like to try the Caspian Café, and I always enjoy the Weary Traveler's vegan options.

Plus of course there are a couple of road-trip options for actual vegetarian restaurants:
The Cheese Factory in the Dells
Country Life Garden in Portage

I work at Bandung Indonesian Restaurant here in Madison WI. It was and still is one of my favorite places. We have a HUGE veggie menu, and can make almost anything on the meat menu vegan. I highly suggest Bandung. We also make our own tempe here and its sooooooooooooo good! Come!!!!biggrin

I had the vegan Yippie Hash and a Bloody Maria at the Eldorado brunch last Sunday and it was amazingly satisfying. I don't know how their early-in-the-week evenings look, but they certainly seem to have enough space for a large crowd on a slow night. I wonder what they could do? Is Kevin Tubb still the owner

I would love to go to a Meet-up at Bandung or any Indian restaurant.

What about the Icon for tapas? I know their regular menu isn't terribly vegan friendly, but maybe they could do some special dishes for us on a weeknight?

Also, is Graze an option? I haven't been there yet, but it seems like a place that would do some specials for us and would probably be fantastic.

As for road trips, I would make a road trip to the Spring Green General Store for their tofu migas. Yum! They have great breakfast and lunch. :)

Has the Green Owl already been mentioned, or is it too small to accomodate our group?

It is too small for our group, but there's no way we'd miss out on having events there. We held back to back events there last February to accommodate most people who were interested...

Jennie and I are now discussing plans for another event there.
