View Full Version : What do you think about Flat top grill??
08-22-2007, 11:56 AM
I'm going out to eat with a friend and the only place I could think of to suggest was flat top. I was thinking maybe I could get the raw veggies and ask for the salad and put them on top.. Has anyone been to Flat Top since going Raw?
It is so hard to eat out with friends when living the Raw Lifestyle, not saying I don't want to be raw I just wish more restaurants would server raw food, but I guess that will come 20 + years down the line.
Maybe I can open a raw restaurant where I live. LOL
I think as long as they don't mind you eating your food raw you'll have a bunch of veggies to choose from.
I went out to a pizza place last night and just ordered the house salad and later asked for a bowl of cabbage, to which they were happy to oblige. :)
When in doubt, salad bars are a good option. The food won't be organic but there will be a lot of raw ingredients to nosh on.

After posting I realized this restaurant is only in Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin so I probably won't get as many responses.
I do know it's totally unacceptable to eat lightly grilled veggies so I'll try to see if they'll let me make my bowl of veggies and then they can bring me lettue and I can put the veggies on top. I honestly hate veggies especially uncooked, grilled is slightly better but I still don't care for it then so I struggle eating them but I force myself to.

From Flat tops website
We pride ourselves on bringing the freshest meats and vegetables right to your table. In fact, during the summer months, many of our vegetables are delivered each morning direct from the farm! Did you know that all of our specialty sauces are homemade using the finest and healthiest ingredients...a fact we proudly stand behind!
In each Flat Top Grill location you will find large chalkboards behind the stir-fry line, which detail the calorie, protein, fat, carbohydrate and sodium content of all our featured sauces. So whether you are watching your waistband, have special dietary needs or if you're just plain curious, all the information is right before your eyes!
I think I'd eat before you go so that you aren't hungry when you arrive and then you can either just enjoy the company and not eat there at all or just have a salad or sorts and still feel satisfied.
Bring an avocado with you for some fat/satiation to add to your salad and even a lemon.

That's the problem I don't have time to go home and make anything, I'm meeting my friend right after work.
Before I went Raw my friend and I planned that we would go out to eat and I don't want to say no I can't because I can't eat there and she would probably be mad if I just watched her eat. I wish I had could invite her over my place but I don't have anything ready that I could serve her and she can't eat nuts.
From what I've read their veggies are organic, just not sure how good their dressing is as far as being made fromfresh veggies, plus I know they're olive oil is proabably not raw it's a catch 22 I guess.

No this is the one that has a huge selection of raw veggies, I thought it was a good choice.
Whats nice about this place is I can go and pick out my veggies and not have to be picky with the waitress, taht is why I thought this would be a good place to go.

hey, i might have just missed you -- it's been a few years since i've been to flat top, but i would think it wouldn't be too bizarre to follow your plan. i would suggest calling before you head over, talk to a manager, and see how they can accommodate you. btw, i live in Chicago, and hello :wave:
