      Restaurant Review: Gobo

      Edited by Rob Patronite and Robin Raisfeld, co-authors of The
      Underground Gourmet column in New York magazine.

      When David Wu and his brother Darren were growing up, it was a
      given that they ate all their vegetables - their parents, after all,
      founded Zen Palate. Clearly, the organic apple doesn't fall far from
      the tree: After respective stints in the family business and at the
      New York Restaurant School, the brothers have opened Gobo
      (Japanese for "burdock root"), a vegetarian restaurant with an open
      kitchen, an organic juice bar, and - in a departure from their
      parents' alcohol-free policy - a beer-and-wine license. The meatless
      menu takes a global turn with tea-smoked tofu,
      flageolet-and-cremini casserole, tofu salmon with coconut-curry
      rice, and pappardelle with vegan Bolognese sauce.

      Gobo is located at 401 Sixth Avenue, in Manhattan

      Vegi Meals on Wheels Inquiry

      One of our members, Sheila, is looking for some advice on helping a
      vegetarian that is qualified for meals on wheels. Meals on Wheels
      won't offer vegetarian options, and so Sheila is looking for an
      alternative program that offers free veggie meals to those in need.
      If you have any advice, please email her at HECSheila@....
