Vegetarian in Center City

Cambodian-born Jason Lay, who last worked for a company that handles bridge inspections, is overseeing Mi Lah Vegetarian (the name means "mercy"), which opens Thursday (10/9) at 218 S. 16th St., which last was Pita Pocket at 16th and Chancellor.

He's installed as chef Tyler Black, a veteran of Govinda's and Horizons, who is doing a moderate-priced menu (nothing over $17). Here's the dinner menu. The lunch menu is not printed yet, Lay says.
