    Help me navigate dinner tonight!

    Primal Fuel
    So, it's my boyfriend's 31st birthday and I'm taking him out to a REALLY nice dinner at Alexander's Steakhouse in San Francisco. I figure steaks will be a pretty safe bet for the paleo lifestyle and they do have one grassfed steak item on the menu but most people come here for the Wagyu steaks or the ribeyes/tomahawkes. They serve a lot of "amuse bouche" items which are complimentary hordorves throughout the meal which probably aren't exactly paleo friendly. From what I hear, this restaurant is as much of an experience as it is just great food.. So, should I fully immerse myself in the rare dining experience or really try to avoid all things besides meat?

    The menu is here: http://www.alexanderssteakhouse.com/.../sf_dinner.pdf

    For those who are foodies.. They are Michelin rated 1-star.

    EDIT: Fixed typo

    Eat the food. All of it (unless you have a major food sensitivity/allergy).

    Edit - seriously eat it. I go out to a fancy restaurant perhaps 3 times a year and I eat whatever the heck I want. That is way less than the 80/20 rule. Just eat and be happy.

    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    Eat up! The menu looks really good with only a couple of non-primal items. Also, it's a celebration, and you're supposed to have fun! If it looks good, eat it.
