I am an unrepentant omnivore, and it’s rare that I find myself not in the mood for meat. But lately, that’s been happening more frequently as I find my body craving greens and presumably rebelling from my usual heavy, butter-, meat-, and carb-laden diet. I want veggies, but I don’t want to give up meat entirely, and I don’t want to eat a salad. We’re getting into fall, people. Our veggies should be cooked.

Enter Dovetail, Michelin starred Chef John Fraser’s haunt on the Upper West Side, and Mondays are looking really good for satisfying those veg cravings. He’s offering both a vegetarian and a vegetable-focused course menu on Mondays for $42 (3 courses plus dessert). The seasonal menu changes frequently, so make sure you check out the Monday night vegetable menu on the website before making your reservations.
