Vegetarian/vegan options for dinner

Hello, we are regular visitors to Stratford. One member of our family is a strict vegetarian, near, but not quite vegan. Eats eggs and drinks milk, but no cheese, or cream. We have struggled to find good restaurant dinner options that are not just a salad. Most Stratford restaurants, at all price points, include cheese in their veggie entrees, or else do not have enough protein. Any suggestions? We have already booked the restaurant at The Bruce for the first night. We were going to book Rundles for the second night, but they are closed for the season.

Could you not request the dish be prepared without cheese?

There are a couple listed on Happy Cow...

At a certain point though you must remember Stratford is not a large city with hundreds of dining options.

Yes, but often the entree is not as good without cheese if it is planned to include it, or does not have protein. A healthy vegetarian diet is not just some leafy greens or veggies. And when you're travelling and staying at a hotel for several days it's tough to get a complete diet.

hi phpr, Stratford doesn't have hundreds of dining options but it does have a lot of superb options. More than most small cities. The restaurant at the Bruce has quite a few excellent vegetarian or vegan dishes, and Rundles had a couple. I've been coming to the Stratford festival for 46 years. In the first decade there was very little, but lots of great dining options now. There might not be enough vegetarians in town to support good veggie fare though. Thanks for your suggestion.

Yes, thank you .. I'm very familiar with Stratford.

It's a matter of managing expectations.

There's no such thing as "not enough protein" as long as you are getting enough calories from whole plants (as opposed to processed foods).
