Healthy Eating; Restaurant Etiquette

christina_hunnicutt | Jun 30, 2007 10:10 PM

I will be visiting New Orleans for a week, and I, unfortunately, am on a diet. I don't expect to lose weight in NO- I've been to New Orleans before and came back ten pounds heavier- but I would like to find some healthier options for some of my meals. Does anyone have a restaurant that they enjoy that has healthy entrees? I know I can always go with a salad (boring!) but I am seeking out innovative, healthy main courses.

Because I am trying to eat lighter, I was curious as to whether or not it is OK to order appetizers as a main course in some restaurants. For example, I was interested in The Bank Cafe's mussels appetizer, but didn't want to eat that and a main course. I would probably order soup as a starter and a cocktail. What is the protocol in New Orleans restaurants?

Thank you for your help!
