Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
walked past one today in the 5th. It even has a website: http://www.anada5saveurs.com/ No idea if it's any good.

I'm not an expert but a big thumbs up for lots of seaweed and tofu.

I agree, but France, or at least Paris is not a food paradies for vegetariens. Which I find amazing as French chefs tend to be proud about their creativity.

Probably just some ethnic restaurants will provide some better vegetarian food, The easies being Italian.

I found some additional links, one problem with the first, despite a nice menu, they do not serve alcoholic beverages, which is not a problem for me, but anyway...

Oriental Restaurants: Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Vietnamese, & etc. normally have vegetarian options to attract Buddhist patrons.  Indian restaurants also but they are more expensive, at least here in the states.  Mexican restaurants will usually sell a bean burrito platter with the burrito made with vegetable shortening instead of lard -- have to ask.  Various Levant and North African dishes are vegetarian ditto for sub-Saharan African.  Some forms of Jamaican Pepper Pot (Callaloo)  are completely veggie; be prepared to have the top of your head blown off.  ;-)

One thing we've done when going to a restaurant with a large group is to  purchase, in advance, a vegetarian option for them who want one.  We've always told the chef to make what he/she wants, subject to a price limit.  Chefs here in the US get really tired of cranking out 'The Same Old Things' off the menu and enjoy the challenge and creativity of doing something one-off, as it were.  Sitting down at 'off-times' helps clinch the deal.
