Strictly vegetarian Zenith is grafted into the same restaurant space as Asahi, a Japanese sushi, teriyaki, and noodle restaurant, though the two have separate kitchens. Zenith's dishes are Asian-influenced, which means spring rolls stuffed with chopped jicama, carrots, and peanuts instead of the usual shrimp or pork. The Wondrous Pumpkin is a bright mix of pumpkin squash, celery, snowpeas, mushrooms, tofu, peppers, and faux-ham. Ersatz meats support many of the entrees, and they taste surprisingly like their fleshy counterparts: Mock-duck is layered, with a crispy skin and chewy interior, and the vegetarian squid is scored to give it an authentic texture. Succulent Paradise—barbecued soy gluten with steamed broccoli—is simple and disarming. Pasta dishes can be made to order, with a choice of noodle, toppings, and sauce; ravioli are stuffed with spinach, pumpkin or mushroom. Non-dairy cakes and pies are quite rich and pleasing. While the food isn't superlative, it's certainly serviceable. It's also quite inexpensive for the Theater District. But for conscientious diners tired of scanning menus for the vegetable plate, Zenith is well worth a visit.
