The best experience at a restaurant you ever had palEo style?

What is your most paleotastic restuarant story? I'm in Denver now at the AANS meeting and I spoke with my concierge about my diet....he makes a call and I get the owner who hooks me up with the supplier of the bison in Wyoming...then the chef takes me back to the kitchen and we cut my steak.....he calls the sausage maker who make me four personal links and then they grind the peri renal fat for a hamburger on the side... If you're paleo and in colorado and don't eat at Appaloosa you're nuts. For dessert he made me homemade buffalo chili that was sublime. Washed it all down with malbec.....headed to work out now. AMAZING I tell you!

And in bistros its a good entry to offal. Classic french tehnique and good ingredients, many are surprised even by tripe how delicious it can be. And they always have tongue, liver and onglet (hanger steak i think), liver pates and terrines....

Downvoted because I've worked in restaurants for a decade and know how wrong this is. Rack of lamb grilled rare, duck leg confit fried in duck fat, seared livers over a warm spinach salad.... uh, you're going to the wrong restaurants buddy.

Downvoted for sweeping, unexplained statement that would disincentivize others from trying paleo.

I love Urban Pl8 so much...they are such kind and considerate people. Caramba is also awesome, family-run and super friendly, with great food. Love them all!

@Anonymous Coward: I'm sure that you do. You do know that you have given me no reason, suggestion, or argument as to why I should even consider agreeing with you. You just made a short, flat statement and stopped. I'm always willing to listen to viewpoints other than my own, but you've not given me much to consider.

agreed totally. Here in Brooklyn i routinely go to french bistro type places and am always impressed how the bulk of the meals are just meat and veg and starchy veg. The bread is just in a basket, skip it no worries. Love it. Robin DeBois is terrific if you're in NYC.

Bouchon is good, but they use canola oil i think. But they use only top quality produce. Its run by Keller after all.

This statement is simply untrue. Eating has always been a social activity. Eating out is very sociable. Perfectly compatible with being Paleo.

Brazilian Stake Houses like Fogo De Chao are good paleo eats. There is one in Denver and it's fantastic. "Today, our gaucho chefs still expertly grill each of our 15 cuts of meat and offer you continuous tableside service." Nom.

Here in Atlanta, we have Urban Pl8. Home of Monthly Paleo night, in addition you can go in and order specific Paleo dishes. The food was GOURMET and Mouth Watering, one of the better Restaurant experiences ive had Paleo or no.

If you are in Atlanta, you are Required to go eat here at least once.

HOB NOB Cafe in Boone NC.

hob nob cafe.com Local meat and veg. They will modify what they make so you can get what you want. However, I am not sure what they cook in, I supposed you can ask and modify that too.

French bistros are quite paleo, if you ignore the bread and desserts (not cheeses!:). Good ones even fry everything in duck fat. Same goes for most french sausages, they often do not have any fillers by tradition. Try bodain noir or andouillette.

None. Paleo is incompatible with going out to eat.
