Since you're not likely to find any, try seafood from Newport or McGrath's. I was in Corvallis last night and had some excellent bacon guacamole at del Alma. They had a lot of tapas and charcuterie that could pass for paleo.

I don't know how Paleo it would be, but Athenian Gardens (there's a few locations I think) is the BEST greek restaurant. Their greek salad and gyros are amazing. I grew up on them, and go back as often as I can :-)

Most people are still entrenched in the "saturated fat is bad" dogma, so they wouldn´t qualify coconut oil as healthy.

I must say in Wichita, KS the answer is no. We do have a Natural Grocers here now that carries local grass fed meat. The closest thing we have to a place to eat out and stay paleo would be Chipotle Grill.

This smacks of the Atkins stereotypes that I'm glad paleo has largely avoided. I would argue that food quality is the hallmark paleo virtue, not all the meat you can eat.
