High end restaurants, especially farm to table types or restaurants who really tout high quality ingredients are always among the healthiest options. And any seafood place will be healthy (assuming you don't order the food fried.)

Where are you staying? Any particular food likes/dislikes?

I know with health comes price . But I want to avoid 30-40 dollar dishes .


I'm not big into seafood but my girlfriend is . I like sushi . More so looking for a pub atmosphere with healthier options .

I love all cuisines , i am on a huge Indian kick right now

Not sure which locale you're going to be staying in, but let me recommend a couple of healthy food places I checked out recently:

Sofra Bakery & Cafe

(very limited seating room)

"The Loading Dock" in Belmont (couldn't find a website for them)

LOL keep dreaming. A lot of these restaurants use excessive amounts of butter and/or oil in everything they make. In many cases even a salad at one of these places has more calories than a Big Mac.

Tate bakery seems ok as far as salads go...maybe sandwiches. Sweet greens. U burger. B good.
Bailey and sage.

I mean really most restaurants have healthy and unhealthy options. You can go to a Chinese restaurant and order steamed tofu and broccoli or crab Rangoon and general gao chicken.

Life Alive in Cambridge is vegan and focuses on healthy foods. In my opinion, a vacation is not a time when you should be worried about healthy eating if you want to experience the true flavor of the place you are visiting. Have a nice bowl of clam chowder and a lobster roll. Boston is a great walking city, you can walk off the calories.

Take this advice.

Right but if they are using straight up butter or walnut or avocado oil, or an olive oil based salad dressing; you're better off eating food drenched in that stuff than your typical prepared food based on margarine and vegetable oils (canola, soybean, safflower, palm, etc.).


But I agree with the above advice on making the best of your visit and enjoying the "local flavor". Given the OP's interest in hookah lounges and late night watering holes, he must have a willingness to let it slide once in a while.
