What to eat? What to eat?

I am quickly learning that it can be a little challenging eating out at restaurants with out having to make some compromises.  In my town there are very few vegetarian options and even less vegan so my advice is do the beat you can and pick your battles.  Tonight is my friend Jenny's birthday party and she has chosen Copelands Cheesecake Bistro. What to eat, what to eat?  I find that most restaurants, especially if they are a large chain have their menus online, it helps knowing ahead of time what your choices are and how you can modify the meals if needed. 

here are a few possible choices for salads, CB has a large variety of vinaigrette

Fresh mixed lettuce tossed with spicy bacon, eggs, tomatoes, cucumbers and croutons with your choice of dressing. 5.49 modifications, no bacon

Fresh spinach leaves and Boston bibb lettuce, apples, spicy bacon, mushrooms, toasted walnuts all tossed with crumbled Bleu cheese and our chili salsa vinaigrette. 11.49
modifications, no bacon, for vegans leave off the blue cheese also

Fresh greens, cucumber, fried wonton strips, toasted almonds and shaved chicken on a bed of crispy rice noodles, tossed with a Chinese mustard vinaigrette, topped with a drizzle of our plum lime vinaigrette. 12.49
modifications: leave off the chicken

  • Honey Mustard
  • Chili Salsa Vinaigrette
  • Balsamic Vinaigrette
  • Italian
  • Citrus Vinaigrette
  • Wasabi Vinaigrette
  •  Chinese Mustard Vinaigrette
Just remember to not be afraid to ask for the changes you need, do the best you can and have a great time.

  1. So I ended up having the house salad without bacon or eggs, it was huge with a nice assortment of greens, very good.
