gourmet vegetarian options in slovenia?Hi there,
We are booking a long weekend in Slovenia- itinerary still being decided. Is there one part of the country that has better options for vegetarians? We want high quality lovely food, and are willing to go to nicer places to ensure that we can eat well. Suggestions for regions or even specific restaurants or B&Bs?

1For high-end vegetarian, you are probably going to want to look for a fancy Italian restaurant, simply because you can usually find some meatless pasta dishes. And generally speaking you will do better in the larger towns.
This list might help, but it tends to be more lower-end food establishments (like falafel, etc.):

2Ljubljana has a good, veg friendly Indian restaurant, Namaste, on the river behind the famous university/national library building. Decor is good, the wine list is pretty good so it's not just a basic hole-in-the-wall curry joint. Vego mains are 6 - 8 euro. Ah, what a relief to arrive there!
Okarina in Bled had lots very good veg options at 4 - 15 euro per dish. It specialises in local seasonal produce, e.g. wild mushroom polenta, wild garlic soup etc. It's moderately upmarket (but not expensive by capital city stds), has good wine and is central. We didn't enjoy the service there the night we went but it's certainly a nice vego option if the wait staff are trying harder on your night.
Otherwise, there's heaps of Italian style veg food - salads, pasta and risotto of varying quality - around the place, along with the odd seasonal veg dish at almost any moderate to upmarket restaurant.
It's a meat-oriented country but restaurants were pretty vego aware. Just be aware that not mentioning meat in a description of say, a pizza, doesn't mean there isn't any.
