Vegetarian-friendly dinner on mid-to-upper East side

I'm meeting an old friend for dinner tonight, and looking for a convenient, pleasant vegetarian-friendly place to eat somewhere between 72nd and Madison and Grand Central -- preferably closer to 72nd street. Any cuisine with good vegetarian options is fine. Just looking for someplace comfortable and mutually convenient. Thanks in advance.

The Candle Cafe is excellent.

That sounds perfect ... but I just discovered and made reservations at Candle 79. Any sense of how they compare? (Candle 79 seems a bit pricier).

Candle Cafe is more casual than Candle 79. They are owned by the same people, so they have a lot of the same things on their menus.

As #3 says, Candle 79 is the "fancy" version of Candle Cafe.

Thank you all. We ended up at Candle 79, which was delightful. Friendly service, yummy food, and excellent cocktails. Easy to get to by foot from 72nd and Madison, and by subway from Grand Central. Candle Cafe might have been even more convenient, so we'll try that another time.
