    I wish that Nathaniel's would do more vegetarian options! :)

  2. We have a vegetarian option for each course on New Year's Eve. If there is something there that you cannot eat, or have a heart's desire for something else, let us know and we will see what we can do.

    Thank you for taking the time to write.
