Enjoy $5 Entrées on February 28 at Select Area RestaurantsFebruary 10, 2011
For one day only on Monday, February 28, diners can enjoy a $5 Smart Entrée at restaurants participating in Mather Hospital’s Just Ask Us restaurant program.
To promote the benefits of portion control, participating restaurants are offering special $5 entrées during their normal opening hours. “It’s the same delicious food that is featured on their regular menu in a reduced portion size. It’s the smart way to dine out. You won’t feel too stuffed, you won’t waste any food and your wallet won’t be hurting,??? said Gemma Saylor, a registered dietitian and director of Mather Hospital's Just Ask Us restaurant program. Prices are per person and do not include beverage, tax or gratuity.
“Many of our partner restaurants have already introduced smaller portion items to their regular menus. This event entices diners to try these great options. Portion control is a simple way to help manage weight gain and helps reduce the risk of heart disease, diabetes and some forms of cancer,??? Saylor said.
Mather Hospital’s restaurant program works with restaurants in Suffolk County to provide smaller portion options to their customers. The program is funded by the New York State Department of Health - Healthy Heart Program.
