Quick & Healthy: Newcomer U Food Grill puts the focus on baking, grilling and steaming (not frying) which definitely helps keep fat in check. Our only complaint: sodium levels are high unless you opt for reduced sodium grilled entrees and sides. The 3-4-U Side Plate lets you make a vegetarian meal from 3 sides such as steamed broccoli, whole grain brown rice, sweet potato mash, or a side salad. Locations: Terminal B, Terminal C
Runner Up: It’s pricier than most, but Boston favorite Legal Sea Foods dishes up grilled fish dinners with two sides, including broccoli or brown rice. Or you could pair a house salad (ask for dressing on the side) with a Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail. Location: Terminal C, central area pre-security
