Tel: 212 982 5870's insider take:

Yes, vegetarian restaurants are cheap, but few of them are fun. That's not the case at Counter, an East Village café that bills itself as a Vegetarian Bistro and Wine Bar. Sit at the semicircular bar or in a booth, sip a glass of wine from a surprisingly long list of organic and biodynamic bottles, and prepare to be impressed by dishes like potato-almond gnocchi in a lemon-thyme sauce, tornados of seitan with mustard sauce, and a root beer float martini dessert—sarsaparilla-infused vodka with vanilla ice cream.
