The first restaurant

So I have yet to eat out at a restaurant in 2011. As a matter of fact, I haven't dined out since 6/19/2010.  Assuming I will eventually find myself in a restaurant...where should I go?

Applebee's is running commercials for their "under 550 calorie" meals.  This sounds about right.

A quick check of the nutritional information on Applebee's website shows pretty decent numbers. Less than 550 calories, low in fat.  But like anything, sodium is the monster. The lowest sodium is the Asiago Peppercorn Steak at 1,520mg of sodium.  The highest? Teriyaki Shrimp pasta: 3,250mg.

Why so much salt, Applebee's?  Anybody have any better restaurant selections?
