A vegetarian, not a vegetable-arian

To all those restaurants downtown that consider themselves vegetarian friendly because the offer salads as their veggie option on the menu, give me a break. Just because I don't eat meat doesn't mean that I ONLY eat vegetables. I go to restaurants for a nice meal; I can chop veggies up at home. A vegetarian chooses to replace the meat portion of their meal with another protein (i.e. lentils, soy); they don't just eliminate it and survive on sides of veggies! There are four food groups: try to create some dishes that incorporate them all, and if you can't even succeed at this oh-so-difficult task, then simply tell me that you can't cater to my diet.
