When will Paleo options start popping up in restraunts?

I'm getting a bit tired of not being able to get anything when I go anywhere, or having to settle for something less than optimal. Many places have been already catering to Atkins-ers, crazy calorie counters and dumbass "Weight-Watchers," when are places going to start catering to us hackers?

If you could just find somewhere that doesn't cook in vege oils, then youd be golden. Anyone actually found somewhere like this?

Amen this. I eat out maybe once every six months now, partly for c. reasons of personal economics but mostly because a. the ingredients are crap or the oils they cook with are crap, and b. I feel like crap even when I make the best possible paleo choices from any given menu.

I can't imagine chains catering to paleo as they're so dependent on processed rewarmable meals. Getting away from chains, you're much more likely to encounter actual cooked food, from real ingredients, not a box or a bag. Eating paleo, or fairly paleo, at a place that cooks is a snap.

Depends on where you live, I manage a Manhattan restaurant (Foragers City Table) we've just revamped our menu and It's super paleo, wild caught seafood, all our meat is pastured and never grain finished. And our sides to dishes are all relatively paleo, cumin carrots, parsnip puree, heirloom greens, romanesco and local cauliflower, etc.

But I am originally from Michigan(Detroit Suburbs) and there's is barely anything in any restaurant that meets even loosely defined paleo requirements.

Mexican and Thai food can be pretty paleo if you make the correct options, you can usually find a good salad at most places (whole foods included) and if all that fails I'm sure there's a Chipotle around :) Veggie/Gauc/Meat bowl works in a pinch

Some of the menu trends for 2013 include "locally sourced meats and seafood", "locally grown produce" and "hyper-local sourcing (restaurant gardens). Check out the rest here: http://www.sacbee.com/2012/12/04/5030072/national-restaurant-associations.html. Really cool stuff if this actually comes to fruition.
