RD's Picks

Most of the time when we're eating out, we don't have detailed nutritional information for every item on the menu. Learn what our registered dietitian would choose (and why), based on a quick scan of the menus at some of our participating restaurants.

Brick + Wood (Fairfield) 

Avocado Salad 
Avocados provide so much nutrition. They contain heart-healthy monounsaturated fat, as well as gut-friendly fiber. Much of our immune system is centered in our gut, so be sure to add healthy fiber to your meals! Avocados also contain important vitamins and minerals including potassium, folate, vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin K and other antioxidants. The cherry tomatoes will give you major antioxidant power with vitamins A, C and E, as well as lycopene. Cucumbers provide vitamin K and are mostly made up of water. 
 
Arugula Salad 
Arugula is related to broccoli and kale, and is very nutritious. It contains antioxidants, calcium, iron, potassium, magnesium, folate and vitamins A, C, and K. The pear will add some fiber and vitamin C; this vitamin C will help the iron from the arugula better absorb in your body. Walnuts give you protein and heart-healthy fats. You can add even more vegetables or lean protein to this salad to further increase the nutrients. 
 
B + W Salad 
Mixed greens are always a good idea. Greens generally contain vitamins A, C, K, B-vitamins and potassium. Pine nuts are the edible seeds from certain species of pine cones, and they contain heart-healthy fats, protein, and vitamin E (an antioxidant). Adding on additional vegetables here can make pack in even more nutrients. 
 
Noci Salad 
Beets are having a moment now, and with good reason. They’re full of phytochemicals, which are compounds in plants that are beneficial to our health. Specifically, betanin (the phytochemical that gives beets their deep red color) has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Beets are also full of other vitamins and minerals that collectively support heart health and may enhance exercise stamina. Be sure to enjoy the beets in this salad! Adding additional vegetables will further increase nutrition. 
 
House Salad 
This salad is simple and a very easy way to add servings of vegetables to your day. Mixed greens, tomatoes and red onion together provide a variety of nutrients. Eating lots of leafy greens is associated with reduced risk of many chronic conditions, as they tend to contain fiber and vitamins A, C and K. Tomatoes provide vitamin C, which is important in supporting our immunity and is more abundant in raw tomatoes; they also contain vitamins B and E, as well as antioxidants called flavonoids. Onions contain contain a flavonoid called quercetin, which fights inflammation and supports your immune system. The flavonoids together with the sulfur compounds in onions may help fight against cancer cells. 
 
B + W Chicken Panini w/Side Salad 
This panini comes with a side salad, which immediately adds vegetables to your day. The more vegetables, the better! Grilled chicken provides lean complete protein, as well as a variety of vitamins and minerals. The peppers are full of nutrients such as fiber, folate, potassium and vitamins A, C  and E. Other antioxidants in peppers are linked to maintaining eye health. Fresh mozzarella naturally contains less sodium and less saturated fat and more water than other types of cheeses. But stick to the portion given, don’t overdo it with extra cheese. 
 
Caprese Panini w/Side Salad 
Again, get that side salad! The fresh mozzarella here is naturally lower in sodium and saturated fat as previously mentioned. Tomatoes are full of nutrients, also as mentioned above. Basil contains several vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, and is considered to be anti-inflammatory.

O'Neill's (Norwalk)


Salmon Florentine   
Salmon is always a good choice, as it is a great source of healthy protein. It also contains omega-3 fatty acids, which are anti-inflammatory and beneficial for your heart and brain. Salmon provides important vitamins and minerals such as vitamin D, vitamin B12, iron and potassium. Plus, this dish comes with vegetables!  
 
Steamed Veggies  
It's essential to increase your intake of vegetables whenever possible. Different vegetables provide different vitamins and minerals, so it's important to eat a variety of types and colors to give your body all the beneficial nutrients that it needs to stay healthy. Steaming is an excellent way of cooking vegetables, as they retain their nutrients very well. 

Sautéed Spinach   
Spinach is packed with nutrition. It provides fiber, protein, vitamins and minerals. In particular, spinach contains vitamins C & A (which are antioxidants) and folate that support your immune system. It also contains vitamin K, calcium and iron. Sautéing is a healthy and quick cooking method; the heat from sautéing spinach actually causes the calcium to be better absorbed by your body. 
 
Cobb Salad (request no bacon; can add grilled salmon/chicken/shrimp) 
You’ll get a good variety of vegetables with this salad. All the different colors of different vegetables are produced by different nutrients – so it’s great to get as many colors as your can. Add grilled salmon, chicken or shrimp if you’d like to include some lean protein. Better to skip the bacon and limit your overall intake of processed meats whenever possible. 

Paci (Fairfield)

Linguine & Shrimp
This delicious dish is perfectly portioned, and meets our Eat Well nutrition criteria as it is lighter on calories, saturated fat and total fat. The shrimp used here is fresh gulf shrimp, and is a great source of lean protein and contains several vitamins and minerals. Organic tomatoes are sauteed to create the sauce; tomatoes contain the four major carotenoids (a type of antioxidant): alpha- and beta-carotene, lutein and lycopene; these are increased when tomatoes are cooked. 
 
Salmon with Orange Glaze 
This dish also meets our Eat Well nutrition criteria. Salmon will always be a great choice; it’s loaded with protein and healthy omega-3 fatty acids (which are anti-inflammatory and beneficial for your heart and brain). Salmon also provides important vitamins and minerals such as vitamin D, vitamin B12, iron and potassium. Steamed broccoli is also part of this dish, and is one of the healthiest foods you can eat. Full of nutrients, broccoli is good for your heart and your immune system. 
 
Artichoke Hearts 
Artichokes are a good source of fiber, folate, vitamins C & K and antioxidants. They are also considered a prebiotic, which means that the fiber found in artichokes feeds our healthy gut bacteria – the gut is where most of our immunity and disease fighting power comes from, so keep your gut healthy! 
 
Beet Salad 
Beets are full of phytochemicals, which are important compounds in plants that are incredibly healthy. They contain nutrients which keep your blood vessels healthy and which support your heart and lungs during exercise.  Arugula contains antioxidants, calcium, iron, potassium, magnesium, folate and vitamins A, C, and K. Onions contain nutrients that fight inflammation and support your immune system. Pine nuts contain heart-healthy fats, protein, and vitamin E (an antioxidant). 
 
Oysters  
Oysters are a low calorie food that is rich in protein, zinc (vital to your immune system), iron (used for building proteins that carry oxygen throughout your body), copper (essential mineral needed for blood cells and nerve cells), selenium (an antioxidant necessary for thyroid function), vitamin D (important for immunity and bone health) and vitamin B12 (needed for nerve system and metabolism). They also contain heart-healthy fats. Be aware that consuming raw seafood/shellfish always poses a risk for foodborne illness. 
 
Sautéed Green Beans 
This low calorie legume is full of antioxidants and fiber. Green beans also contain calcium, folate, vitamin K and many other vitamins and minerals. Sautéing is a healthy cooking method as it preserves most of the nutrients. 
 
Sautéed Broccoli 
As previously mentioned, broccoli is one of the healthiest foods that you can eat. It’s a nutritional powerhouse that contains fiber, protein, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Its nutrients are good for your heart, your brain and your immune system, and may help fight against the formation of cancer cells. 
 
Sautéed Spinach 
Spinach is another extremely healthy choice. It provides fiber, protein and vitamins and minerals. In particular, spinach contains vitamins C & A (which are antioxidants) and folate that support your immune system. It also contains vitamin K, calcium and iron. Sautéing is a healthy and quick cooking method; the heat from sauteing spinach causes the calcium to be better absorbed by your body. 
 
Roasted Potatoes 
Potatoes have gotten a bad reputation, but it’s not all true! When potatoes are cooked in a healthier way (such as roasted) and you leave on the skin, you will benefit from the nutrition they offer: fiber, potassium (important for blood pressure control), vitamin C, B-vitamins and protein. Their carbohydrate content is higher than other vegetables; don’t go beyond the side dish portion size, and pair this side dish with other foods that have protein and/or healthy fats. Tip: letting your cooked potatoes cool down before you eat them will build up resistant starch, which is a healthy prebiotic fiber that feeds your healthy gut bacteria! 
 
Cod and Mussels Livornese 
Cod provides protein, vitamin B12, healthy fat, choline (needed for brain cells) and iodine (needed for thyroid function). Mussels are rich in protein and healthy fats, and also contain iron, calcium and vitamins C & A. Livornese style contains foods common to the healthy Mediterranean diet, and it’s all served on a bed of sautéed spinach with garlic. Garlic is known to support immunity, fight inflammation and help control blood pressure. 
 
Fresh Berries dessert 
Berries (all kinds) are absolutely packed with nutrients. Their deep colors are representative of the different nutrients they contain. All berries are great sources of antioxidants, which are best consumed as real food rather than supplements. And the fresh whipped cream is a treat you should just enjoy!
