Indulgent restaurant meal?

I usually get bunless burger or salad with chicken. Any suggestions for restaurant meals that really take advantage of low-carb in all it's glory? Thanks in advance!

Prime rib, as much as you want, with butter-drenched broccoli and a side salad with real ranch dressing.

Two words: Surf and Turf

A steak AND a lobster (or crab) with drawn butter for dipping. Maybe a shrimp cocktail or a few oysters as a starter. And for me, a Caesar salad (no croutons) for my side dish. Most steak places don't do cooked vegetables very well.

(As good as all this sounds, I don't think I could eat it all in one meal - my LC appetite is not that big )

Yup!

When I was in NYC last week, I ate dinner out one night, and one of the daily specials was surf and turf. It was a lobster tail on top of a filet. It was drenched in butter and seasonings, and came with a baked potato. I asked them to sub the veggie of the day for the potato, and they gave me a huge pile of steamed cauliflower....which was good soaked in the butter from the steak and lobster. VERY good meal all within my daily carb count.

I had a fabulous rib eye a couple of weeks ago. With a big salad, sauteed onions and grilled asparagus.

There is a steakhouse that I love (but moved away from) that serves green beans sauteed with bacon and onions. Mmmmm.

Oh my, this all sounds so good. My go-to indulgent meal would be crab legs dipped in drawn butter, shrimp scampi, a caprese salad of mozzerella cheese and tomatos, steak tartar, escargo, foia gras. Not all at once!

I'm going to hooters for all you can eat naked wings this evening... that's pretty indulgent and I go about every week.

There's a local place that does amazing smoked pork chops and their "southern" greens as a side (ham hock, onion, mixed greens all simmered) makes a really nice meal that's not too heavy, but really satisfying

I picked up some naked wings from Zaxby's last night, thought it sounded good, but turned out I still had no appetite. My kids ate most of them!

I always loved to go to a Mexican restaurant and order Fajita Nortena - Beefsteak, onions, mushrooms, topped with cheese, and of course sour cream and guacamole! I do not eat the flour tortillas that come with it, nor the beans and rice.

Wouldn't it be great to go to a place that had all these dishes? I'd patronize the heck out of that buffet!

I went to a southern place awhile ago and had a triple order of brisket and a huge side of collard greens. Talk about heaven!

But for a sense of total indulgence, I agree you can't beat a big rib-eyed steak with a side of salad (I vote a wedge salad with blue cheese!), and some grilled asparagus or another green veggie, topped with butter.
