The number-one 2017 New Year’s resolution was “Lose Weight / Healthier Eating,” according to Statistic Brain. For many this can be a tough resolution to stick to—temptation lurks around every corner, especially when dining out. But you can still enjoy an evening on the town filled with good food and good company while adhering to your resolution.
