Get the Wheel of Dharma: tempura-battered shitake mushrooms, mashed sweet potato and snow peas

Vegetarian palace Zen Palate may have lost its sweet spot in Union Square years ago, to a TGI Friday's that opened in 2010, but it's primed for a comeback. The small chain still has a smaller outpost in Union Square, one in Hell's Kitchen, and now they've expanded again with a spot in Murray Hill.

According to Zagat, the soy spot is at 516 3rd Avenue. So far, the one Yelp review points to good things, noting "yummy food" and muscular waiters! That's so Murray Hill.
