Dinner for wine-loving parents with Weight Watchers friendly choices?

Monkusarelius | Feb 1, 2012 08:41 PM

Parents are coming in from out of town to catch an early morning flight on Saturday, and would like to do dinner around 6-ish at a place that "has at least SOME Weight-Watchers friendly choices." Mom is bound and determined to stick to the plan even on vacation, bless her. So WW-friendly to me just means at least some good lower-fat, higher-veggie options.

Of course a million places fit this criteria (i.e. you can get a hunk of protein and veggies almost anywhere) but just wondering if there are any "Oh, THAT place!!" places that pop to mind that do this sort of thing especially well.

No sushi (pout), spicy (sob) or mall places (whew). They love wine, California/farmer's market/fresh/New American fusion styles. They're more Sonoma than Napa personalities, if that helps.

Somewhere we can make a reservation would be great, as they're not awesome "waiters"...and we're in South Mpls but totally willing to trek.

Cheers and thanks for your ideas!
