I have guests staying at my vacation rental for the next 8 days and while I know many restaurants have somethings vegetarian on their menus was wondering if anyone could provide their favorites. No meats, chicken or fish, obviously. I am not inclined that way so at a loss
to provide some good dining out options for them. HELP! Any suggestions from non carnivores?

Northside Bistro in Hull Bay does its best to accommodate vegetarians and vegans, this is their menu for vegetarians, sparse.

Grilled Vegetable Platter – Chefs Selection $16
Marinated assorted Seasonal Vegetables

Vegetable Lasagna $19
With fresh Vegetables & Marinara sauce, served with or without Cheese

Pasta Primavera $16
Seasonal Vegetables tossed with linguini & your choice of Marinara, Alfredo, or olive oil & garlic.

Tofu – Your Choice; Curry Tofu, Jerk Tofu or Sesame $20
Served with Chef’s choice of Rice and Vegetable

Greek Platter $18
Hummus, Baba Ghanoush, Tzatziki, & a Greek salad, served with grilled pita

I'm not a vegetarian, hopefully someone else can give you more options. At least it's an option.

I always recommend NSB as a place to dine since it is close to our location and the food is generally good tho not great except for the Chocolate Bomb dessert however, the music can be a bit loud sometimes which I do not like.Not into background music being in the foreground no matter how good it is, especially when just trying to have dining out conversations with friends. I sure wound not want to live in the area surrounding them with music 6 nights a week.

Thirteen is so dark it makes me claustrophobic and Blue Orchid has had disappointing food every time I have had dinner there.
Hull Bay Hideaway - Inconsistent as well. I love the ribs but 1 time they are great and the next so tough the I just give them to the dogs/sans bones. Plus their BBQ sauce leaves something to be desired.

Sorry this was supposed to ask about vegetarian cuisine! Opps!
Help me find good veggie food for guests!

Barefoot Buddha for lunch?
My in-laws eat fish which makes their visits slightly easier than your situation...
Randy's or kokopeli for pasta?

I have posted most of the vegetarian restaurants on St Thomas on HappyCow.net. Love Living at Pilgrim's Terrace isn't listed yet, and neither are the food trucks near Nisky.

With all of the vegan/vegetarians running around these days, I doubt there are any restaurants that don't offer choices for them. Our strict veggie places are like the Roots and Ital places are scattered throughout town. As interesting as they are, I am not sure they are the normal restaurant type places that I would send my guests to.

I would definitely recommend Natural Livity, it is delicious.

Enkai is mostly sushi - which is meat. They have very few veggie options, so you'd be hard pressed to get a full meal there.

Thirteen has tasty pizza but this menu is not available in the dining room and can be a long wait to receive.

I would highly recommend Greengos -- a new mexican place at 34-35 Dronningens Gade (downtown). They have lots of veggie options, good drinks, really fresh and tasty food. I am a veghead and can say that their burritos and tacos are super tasty =D

Pie Whole for dinner has some pasta and pizza options that are tasty. And good beer.

Hope this helps =)

The vegetarian visitors I've sent/taken to the places listed on happy cow have been thrilled. I think the VI has more vegetarian food places per capita than any other Caribbean island, and they need to market themselves as such. Many of the vegetarians I've met aren't looking for fancy dining so the casual vegetarian spots on STT are perfect for casual meals.

None of the vegetarian places I've posted are open at night, but the lunches are usually big enough for 2 meals.

Love Living at Pilgrims Terrace is such a beautiful spot that I'd rather go there than some bland place elsewhere.

Baba Ghanoush!!!! YUM!!! I havent been to NS Bistro yet, maybe will try for diner tomorrow.

BTW: Hull bay hideaway is changed it up. NOW they have the fish tacos from 10-10 for $9. WAHOOOOOO! I love those damn things. I dont see the mango hot sauce anymore. 🙁 🙁 They also have a chef before 4 (don't get me started) with a much larger menu before 4. They have unfortunately gotten rid of the Black strap burger, which bums me out BUT They added a blue cheese burger, which I LOVE.

Sorry Alana totally not vegetarian lol. I would tell them to try Thirteen, they have several GREAT pizzas that can be made sand meat.

Is there a thread somewhere in here that lists reasonable priced places to eat that are good? I know of the high end $$$ places but restaurants like Hideaway, and my new favorite Greengos with lunches and dinners around $10?

You should check into buying the rotory dining out books. $25 tax deductable and have discounts on eating out, lunch, dinners, 2 for 1 specials. Maybe someone here knows where else to get them besides Home Again in Red Hook.

Nice we will check that out. $25 is a deal considering most dinners will run just that. I just posted a new thread I hope people chime in on.
