Room service is room service, and I already know what the inside of a Marriott room looks like...

I'll be in Irvine for work this coming week, staying at the Irvine Marriott near the airport. Tuesday and Wednesday evening are free of mandatory socialization, and I'd like to do something other than spend the time in my hotel room eating overpriced room service for dinner.
Are there any good vegetarian- or vegan-friendly restaurants within a reasonable cab ride? (Or even, "Restaurant Blah is not really veg-friendly, but their WhateverWhatever dish is vegetarian and mindblowingly good.") I'm open to just about any cuisine.
Also, suggestions for how/where to get in a brisk walk or two will be most gratefully received. This trip is going to be one of those "three and a half days of back-to-back meetings, held in the hotel you're staying at" ones, where my usual routine includes several miles a day on the bike plus lots of walking and sometimes climbing trees. Being able to get some movement in will help me keep from getting restless and twitchy, I think (and will give me some introvert-recharge time). Plus if you never leave the hotel, Irvine looks like Newport Beach looks like Sacramento looks like...
Is the area around the Marriott walkable?
