Green Zebra is a great place to eat vegetarian food in a more formal and sophisticated setting. Unlike other meat-free spots, Green Zebra doesn't just serve salads and plain vegetables you don’t want to eat, in a drab space. Instead, it's a real restaurant where you can sit down to a nice meal of beautifully plated dishes. Expect things like persimmon carpaccio with avocado mousse and arugula or squash risotto with zucchini and eggplant. It’s a great spot for a date or small group of friends for people who don’t mind not having meat.

Shaman is a small plates Mexican BYOB spot from the same people who brought you Chilam Balam, and it's one of the better BYOB restaurants around.
The patio and BYOB policy alone are worth repeat trips, but the simple Italian food isn't a guarantee hit.
