Just a head of iceberg lettuce and a fork, please

I am in the midst of applications for professional positions in my field. Often the people doing the hiring will fly interview candidates out to their location for a day-long interview process, which includes meals with people on the search committee. How can I gracefully request that they accommodate my vegan diet?

I've considered not mentioning it and just making do, but that could cause two problems:
1. We end up at the Beef & Cheese Palace and there's nothing I can eat--the committee feels bad & I look rude.
2. Sometimes all I can eat at a restaurant is a side salad and some fries. This would be a...weird choice for a job interview, no?
I don't want to ruffle any feathers or seem demanding, so how should I make this request without hurting my chances?
