When I go out to an italian restaurant I usually bring some of my low protein pasta along and when I explain my situation the waiters and staff are always very understanding and I have only been turned down for it once in the past 6 years. Or if you have a relatively high allowance for phe and you stay low that day if you go to a mexican food resaurant most of them will have a vegetarian fajita or burrito, just make sure they don't put beans or cheese on it
