Well according to the website above, Happy Cow - the healthy eating guide, New York City is the #1 place where a vegetarian can have many options in their meal choice. Because there are foods from all over the world in the "melting pot", vegetarians are able to explore all sorts of fruits and vegetables that may not be familiar to our "typical American citizens."
From my recent experience, this fact might be true, but to afford the luxury of non-fried food, you must be ready to lay down a few more bucks than usual.
I ended up having to research different restaurants, and the average price-range was between $30-$50 per person anywhere. SUCKED!
