It sounds like ketosis to me, though I don't recall being thirsty. Are you getting enough water & getting in the vitamin, mineral, salt supplements?
Going out to eat is always a challenge for me. If you can check the menu online beforehand and planning ahead helps. Don't be shy about asking the staff to prepare your food IP friendly, like hold the sauce, lemon instead of dressing, etc. Fill up on water if you can before going.
