pestew posted a topic in Gluten-Free RestaurantsI was diagnosed with Celiac two weeks ago and have been following the diet without a problem. Last night I went out with a small group for a friend's birthday and ordered what I thought was a perfectly gluten-free meal, but after eating it was like I had the flu and was sicker than I had ever been before going gluten-free... Here's what I ate: Salad (romaine lettuce and dressing*) Steak (no seasoning, in a tomato sauce* with provolone cheese) Vegetables (steamed and served in butter with no seasoning) * = the chef said these were gluten-free items Before ordering I spoke with the waiter/manager about my condition and they seemed very knowledgeable about celiac and my needs. The restaurant was empty (I hear that's the best time for a celiac to eat out). My food was prepared separately and in a clean area with new utensils (I do not know this for sure, but that's what I was told).... Am I missing something?
