Calorie-counting foodies can find plenty to eat at Le Bernardin without blowing up their diets. The New York restaurant specializes in fresh fish, and accordingly, celeb chef Eric Ripert’s menu includes a number of figure-friendly light options. The first section of the restaurant’s menu comprises “Almost Raw” dishes, which have lighter preparations and are generally lower in calories. Raw oysters, Vietnamese-style marinated hamachi and kampachi tartare with marinated Japanese cucumber should be good picks for dieters. Grilled and baked offerings on the rest of the menu tend toward the lighter side, but if you’re counting calories, stay away from the decadent desserts. The Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star restaurant has enough options to keep you looking trim while still enjoying a delicious meal.
