I am TRYING to keep on diet tonight at one of my favorite restaurants. Can those versed in such affairs advise which would be "best" for me? I imagine it's the Baked Scrod? But what is the "order" of "healthiness" here? They are listed below in order of my preference to eat, mind you I've already excluded my favorite choices, which I know to be unhealthy...

Thanks in advance.

Stuffed Peppers
Large bell peppers stuffed with chopped meat, rice, imported cheeses, veggies and fresh herbs. Served over linguine

Veal Limone
Pieces of veal sautéed with mushrooms, capers and toasted pine nuts in a lemon sauce. Served over sautéed spinach and potatoes with a side of capellini with garlic and oil

Due Melanzane
Two of our popular stuffed eggplants, filled with spinach, artichoke hearts, mushrooms, onions, peppers and mozzarella cheese. Served over a bed of linguine

Baked Scrod
Scrod loin baked in a lemon garlic or marinara sauce. Served with your choice of pasta

For curious or enterprising souls, I've linked the menu below, and the items I've had to rule out are:

The Ultimate
Three large chicken cutlets, extra bacon, lettuce, tomato and mayo served on our homemade pizza bread

Famous Zoner
Our homemade pizza dough wrapped around your favorite toppings


Veal - skip the potatoes and pasta.

So sayeth the Lords of Low Carb.


Just skip the pasta in any of the top 3.

They'll still not be perfect meals, but they won't be terrible, either, and they'll taste way more special and rich and yummy than a plain grilled chicken.


I'd go with the Due Melanzane - skip the pasta. *

ask them to prepare you a baked chicken breast with a side of rice and veggies. I've never been to a restaurant that wouldn't do that. Of course, I've never tried at a really nice restaurant.

If it's less obnoxious, pick out a large salad with no dressing, and ask if they can add grilled chicken to it.
