Best Restaurants for a Vegetarian?

What are some of the best restaurants in the South Bay with a solid selection of vegetarian options? Seeking restaurants / dining... not Veggie Grill.   Restaurant does not need to be 100% vegetarian, just needs to have some great options (i.e. a veggie burger or well-marked menu with V, VG and GF options).

Though it's not necessarily a vegetarian-only restaurant,  Farm Stand in  El Segundo is EXCELLENT for a menu with a massive range of options! They use all organic, non-GMO ingredients that are locally sourced directly from the El Segundo farmer's market each week. The menu marks which items are vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free- there are tons! A lot of there entrees are even customizable to vegetarians, so all diners can enjoy almost 100% of the items. It's a really nice, cozy, atmosphere and all of the waitstaff are very knowledgeable about the cuisine. I've been countless times and can vouch for countless items on the menu, but my absolute favorite are the housemade pita with dips appetizer (it includes hummus, a Turkish caramelized onion, eggplant, yogurt, sautéed mint dip, and a diced Cucumber-Mint, yogurt dip), and the "Talk of the Town" Walnut Pomegranate Stew. They have great wines and desserts, which is always a nice plus!

The Spot in Hermosa Beach is awesome - it has always been my favorite veg restaurant in over 30 years since going veg.  Walnut mushroom loaf and the enchiladas are always great!

Lemonade has great vegetarian (as well as vegan) options. My favorite is the watermelon radish and tuna and the soba noodles. I absolutely love this place I usually hate chains!

In downtown manhattan beach,  Le Pain Quotidien has a lot of vegan and  vegetarian options, as does  Lemonade.  These are very close to each other so you can check them both out if you are in the area.  

In El Segundo (right next to Manhattan Beach,  Veggie Grill is awesome.  I'm not vegetarian and I think it's great.  Also,  Whole Foods Market has lots of veggie stuff.
