Hi! Can anyone suggest restaurants in or near Murray Hill that have calorie counts available for their menu? I've found a few so far (all chains).

Best options so far:
Sweetgreen
Le Pain Quotidien

Will do in a pinch:
Pret a Manger
Just Salad
Fresh & Co
Europa Cafe

Do you know of anywhere better/more interesting?
Thanks!!!

    The reason they're all chains is that NY law requires chains (as defined in the law) to provide calorie information.

    Very few restaurants that aren't compelled to provide such information would dream of doing so (for reasons you can guess).

      Yeah, I know :( I figured I would ask here just in case though.

      There are definately better and more interesting restaurants in the neighborhood, but they are not chains and do not have calorie counts.
      From your list I would recommend sweetgreen, although LPQ has some good breakfasty options.

        very curious why this information would be of interest to you?

          I have a medical reason (off-topic for this board.) Was hoping someone could suggest something Chowhound-worthy!

          Bareburger has online info, dunno if its also in the actual restaurant. I've ordered delivery and the black bean veggie burger was pretty good. (Haven't tried any of the meat options)
