Post-Bariatric Surgery restaurant dining

dberg1313 | May 21, 2013 08:35 AM

I recently had bariatric surgery and am slowly adding to my diet which means occasional restaurant meals. I want to start by saying we are very good tippers, and often eat in good local restaurants, usually seafood or steak places. I'd appreciate a server's point of view since I will ask for a box when my meal arrives so I can set a portion of it, usually the majority (since my capacity is much reduced) aside. I don't see this as creating a burden on the server, but it makes me feel cheap! Any advice on dining out post-surgery is appreciated too!
