WW-friendly restaurants around S. Nassau

Looking for restaurants that can handle dieter's needs in the area. Right now my favorite is the sushi at Akari in Merrick. I'm getting sick of salad with grilled/boiled shrimp at most diners. Haven't tried Applebees - we avoid chains, though inexpensive is good.

  1. When I'm trying to lose weight, I've come up with a dish that many (although not all) restaurants and diners can handle: egg whites scrambled with chopped fresh basil and tomatoes. It's light and yet interesting. Of course, a lot depends upon the quality of the tomatoes. And not every place has fresh basil in the kitchen.

    1. Can anybody name specific restaurants that handled their needs?
