I eat out a lot. What are some restaurants that are healthy?

That doesn't necessarily answer my question. What kinds of foods do you like?
Eating out often isn't the healthiest, but if you have to you have to pay close attention to portion sizes. Get them to box up half before it even gets to the table. Don't choose things that are heavy in condiments. Also watch your sugar and fat intake. Don't snack on bread or high calorie appetizers before your meal. Drink water.
Most restaurants post the calorie content/nutrition of their meals on their website. Plan what you are going to get before you get there.

Alright, I like eating a lot from Chipotle AND steak. And I like Spanish food like rice and beans and fried chicken

Gotcha. I love chipotle but just one of their burritos can have over 900 calories! Try them naked (without the tortilla). Try nixing the guacamole and sour cream.
I also love Spanish foods. Switch to brown rice, white rice is just sugar and no nutrition. Beans are great for you, but don't add lard or fats to them. A portion of steak is about the size of a deck of cards, a portion of rice is about a cup, and a portion of beans is about half a cup.
Do you like any vegetables or fruits? Those foods are vital for a healthy diet.

Grill or bake your chicken! Fried things are going to kill any workout efforts.

Calories per day is debatable and is based off of your age, gender, and activity level. If you have a busy job/lifestyle/workout schedule you need more calories to fuel you.
I recommend an app like myfitnesspal that will take that all into account and give you a calorie goal per day. You can also track the calories you eat through the app.
Talking to a dietician or nutritionist can also be a good idea.
