Healthy Choices Happy Customers

All of us in the restaurant business forget all to often that we need to provide our customers with healthy menu selections. The obvious choices are salads with low fat dressings or broiled fish options such as tilapia or triggerfish (the new tilapia) . Whole wheat pasta is always a good bet as there are many people that are carb sensitive or are simply watching their carb intake.

Dont let the food police get over on you

Our customers more and more are looking to us to provide them with healtier choices on our menus. I tend to believe that we ought to give the customers what it is they want but at the same time be on the lookout for those bureaucrats that want to make our jobs that much harder.
