Sandford's Grub and Pub
200 Jefferson St.
Ft. Collins, Colorado
Although the menu items were definitely not low-sodium, they went out of their way to prepare a chicken breast, baked potato, and steamed vegetables
for my meal ($13.99, including a bread loaf, which my spouse thoroughly enjoyed). While everyone else feasted on the regular menu items, I
was able to eat well and enjoy the birthday party, too!
New York (City)
(In Little Italy)
This place has been a family favorite for at
least 50 years, and since my father told them about me, we've learned that
they can prepare a LOT of meals with very little sodium. I enjoyed chicken
marsala last week, and it wasn't only safe, it was DELICIOUS. Their porcini
and poppardello dish is amazing, too. I wouldn't say they cut much fat (read:
butter) from the dishes, but I'm sure they would if you asked. - Jon Venecom, New Jersey

New York, NY 10019
Had a very good experience at the Brooklyn Diner. It took a while to explain my dietary needs
to the server, but she couldn't have been more helpful. Eventually, she brought
the chef out to my table to discuss the meal with me personally. They made a
terrific grilled salmon with garlic and chopped tomato, with steamed string
beans on the side. It was delicious and I ate every bite. It was heaven after
many days of no-salt-added canned soup and salads. -- Edith Sachs
420 Forest Avenue
Staten Island, NY 10314
I've eaten here several times and they really bend over backward to accommodate
customers with low sodium needs. Most menu items are made to order, and the
kitchen is great about "tweaking" them or making substitutions to eliminate
elements that aren't appropriate for a low sodium diet. Their suggestions are
creative and never disappointing. The S48 bus from the Staten Island Ferry
terminal in St. George stops right across the street from the restaurant. --

Teaneck, NJ 07666
This place was superb. We walked in, and my mother-in-law immediately told
the maitre d' "This one [me] is low sodium, and this one [my husband] is
gluten free." He responded, "No problem at all." They were more
knowledgeable about special diets than any restaurant I've ever been to, and
more accommodating. They made pasta for me cooked in unsalted water, which
no other restaurant has ever been willing to do for me. I had penne in
vodka sauce, made to order with all fresh ingredients and no salt. Can't
wait to go back.—Edie Sachs
Bally's Atlantic City
Park Place and Boardwalk
Atlantic City, NJ 08401
This restaurant has a "low sodium", heart healthy section on the menu
with approximately 6 items. I had the "steamed vegetable platter" which
consisted of very healthy variety, such as spinach, broccoli,
cauliflower, potatoes, zucchini, carrots, peppers. They gave me
horseradish on the side to add a little zing to the oversized portion of
3258 Dune Drive
Avalon, NJ 08202
"We live in a resort community in the Cape May area, and it is very
difficult to eat out since the restaurants are somewhat seasonal and
designed to cater to the tourists. Brian, the owner and one of the
chefs, has been more than understanding about no salt - he will tell you
what is in the sauces, cook it dry, dressings on the side, etc. The
food is fresh, not processed. We have gone there for lunch and dinner.

Were gracious and helpful and no salt all the way. Good food, terrific chef. Louie's Bar & Grill

A real shocker. Burger place with old fashioned beer hall flavor and bar. TVs going full blast with sports, sports, sports.
And food that was Excellent. They understood the phrase "no-salt," and even understood sodium. Burgers or entrees, they will prepare to your
heart's delight. Took in my own homemade bun and they used it without buttering it. 1/4 pound burger was loaded with fresh
veggies, including red onion, lettuce, tomato, each thick and tasty.

resturaunts have grilled for me the catch of the day (tuna, salmon or
swordfish) with no salt or seasoning and served it with the sauce on the
side. They will also steam the fresh veggies with no seasoning. With a
squirt of lemon it's a wonderful meal!" -- Michelle Howard
Outback Steakhouse Canton, Michigan
42871 Ford Rd
Canton, MI 48187-3357
"...goes out of their way to help people on a low sodium diet. The
waiters all seem to know what can and can't be eaten and what on their menu
fits the diet. They make excellent recommendations and have even informed me
that their baked potatoes have butter and salt brushed on the outside skin
before baking (which I would have never imagined). Due to their excellent
service and assistance, its now one of my favorite places to eat out." --
