Chef Gary Hawkins builds the menu around fresh, regional ingredients, creating unique dishes inspired by the local culture. Chef Gary regularly offers new dishes to tempt diners. Next time you’re in the area, try these two Healthy Dining-approved dishes that are fixtures on Sophia’s Restaurant’s menu:
Salad Maison (140 calories, 9 g fat)
This salad proves that greens can be a real star of your meal. These field greens are tossed with candied orange peel, toasted hazelnuts, roasted tomato, and Maytag Blue Cheese for a perfectly balanced mix of sweet, salty, crisp and creamy. To make this a Healthy Dining choice, request the cider-dijon vinaigrette dressing on the side and add sparingly. Each Tbsp will add 80 calories, 8 g fat and 115 mg sodium). Also request less cheese (0.25 oz) and less hazelnuts (1½ Tbsp).
Sautéed Pacific Salmon (700 calories, 25 g fat)
Omega 3’s, lean protein and veggies in one tasty dish? Yes, please. This is a Pacific salmon with savory pad Thai paired with sweet bell peppers and carrots. Request less peanuts (0.25 oz) to make it a Healthy Dining choice.
