The Sashimi Delight at Fuji Mountain is a great selection for low-carb resolutioners in a sushi setting. We recommend pairing the platter with the Avocado Salad.

Public House Logan Square

Get meaty with the Flat Iron Steak at Public House. The steak entree comes with grilled onions, blue cheese, spanish olives, romaine, serrano-dijon dressing. 

Village Belle Restaurant and Bar

Pack on the protein with the Striped Bass entree. The dish comes with white and wild rice. Substitute  for all wild rice to get the higher protein-carb benefit.

Seafood Unlimited

Simple or complicated, seafood is the star at this restaurant. The seafood can be pan seared or grilled. We recommend the Sesame Crusted Salmon as a safe choice for resolutioners.

Rex 1516

Get a taste of the South without the fried additions. Check out the Shrimp and Grits for a well-balanced choice that won't kill the waistline.
