Red Lentil is one of the most successful vegetarian restaurants Boston has ever supported — despite many selections that are vegan and/or gluten or nut-free, and even despite a modest hand with cheese on the non-vegan items. The must-haves are gobi Manchurian, smoothies, and the mizuna salad with pistachio-crusted tofu for the vegans, and something like the sweet-potato quesadilla for cheese-head vegetarians. The desserts in this idioms are pretty good, too. The room is small and not very fancy; whatever you’re wearing shouldn’t clash with chartreuse-lime green paint.
