  1. Winston Salem Nc

    i am having to travel to winston salem, nc as i have a relative in the burn unit there and he will be there for several more weeks.  i found a nice hotel that suits our needs (we were there this past weekend) but have to go back.  anyplace good from anybody local?  i want to try 'loop's' and we ate at bonefish last visit.  thank God for bonefish.  i can usually find one most places i travel to.  but, you know, sometimes you want something other than the 5 items on their gluten-free menu....  (and my husband makes me suffer through watching him eat bang bang shrimp and ahi tuna <o, why, o why is the ahi tuna not gluten-free, bonefish??????!!!)   (ANNNND ONCE AGAIN:  it blows my mind that the freaking hospital cafeteria has NOTHING that is celiac safe.  o, wait, a banana..... wow, they have a salad bar <not eating it for fear of cc) 
  3. last month we had my bff and her daughter come for a visit.   my daughter had some time off from school, so we took a trip to nashville.  my friend got a suite with a kitchenette i'm sure so that i would be able to fix myself something to eat.  (i didn't - i brought sandwich meat and bread, etc)  but everyone was so *hungry* all the time <the girls) that after the first day, i just said "ok - here's a bunch of restaurants in the area that have a gluten-free menu"  and let them choose from the find me gluten free app on my phone.  we had lunch at wild horse saloon, and dinner at margaritaville.  2 days later, i can't keep my balance, i have a headache and can't keep my eyes open, so obviously i got cc from one of those places, being as i only ate out on one day (two meals)  so, chalk one up to no research done on either place.  i am dumb.  suffer 2 weeks.....  so then my oldest daughter was here visiting and we decided to go to the red robin THAT I  ALREADY RESEARCHED AND ATE AT AND IT WAS FINE!  ugh - i am back in gluten-head hell again!  the place was soooo much busier the first night i ate there, and i quizzed the server like it was my first time eating there (even though i knew they had a dedicated fryer)  i guess it's always a crap shoot.........    the places in nashville both had gluten-free menus, so i guess that doesn't mean they know what they're doing.  the girl at the red robin answered all my questions like she knew what she was talking about.  you would think after 3 years of gluten-free i wouldn't fall on my head anymore - ughhhhhhh      i am always the one telling everybody to watch out eating at restaurants and now i am eating my words.  oh, well, i guess i will since they're gluten free lolz 
  4. Outback

    So I went to Rapid City yesterday and ate at Outback. I guess this is my "restaurant review".   First off, I did NOT get sick. I explained to the waiter that I also have a corn "allergy" It's actually an intolerance, but I figured he's take it more seriosly if I called it an allergy. I told him my choice of gluten-free was not due to the new trend, but was a medical necessity. He assured me he would speak to the chef about both the gluten and the corn.   I ordered decaf because just about every non-alcoholic beverage has some form of corn in it. He came back and told me the pot of decaf he started "blew up" - grounds all over the place, and that he had to start a new pot so it would be a few minutes. He brought me ice water in the meantime. I asked him if it came out of "the gun" they use to dispense soda, and he said no, it came from a tap. (I didn't drink it anyway because I don't like city water.)   The gluten-free menu had plenty of interesting choices but no prices! I compared the equivalent meals to the ones with prices in my friend's regular menu. Turns out the prices were the same. They also didn't mention (in either menu), the sizes of the steaks, nor the number of shrimp. (I already knew I wanted steak and shrimp but I wasn't sure which steak or which order of shrimp i wanted.)   Eventually both my friend and I chose the "petit filet with grilled barbie shrimp". The steak was 5 1/2 oz. and there were four shrimp. It came with a stuffed baked potato but he let me substitute with garlic mashed potatoes. The shrimp came on a bed of halved cherry tomatoes. Each dinner cost $14.99   Well, the garlic mashed potatoes were WONDERFUL. The steak was tender enough but I wish I had told him to just cook it plain. I am not sure but I suspect that the reason so many restaurants use seasonings on their steaks is to cover up what might otherwise be a not so tasty cut of meat. And the shrimp were WAY overspiced. Even the cherry tomatoes had some sort of coarse seasoning on them.   All in all, the dinner was OK. Not great, but not bad either. I was hoping, since this was my first restaurant experience in years, that it would be wonderful. But what WAS wonderful was being able to sit in a restaurant, be waited on, and not get sick.   Next time I'm going to go for the pizza at Lintz Brothers, but I'm not sorry we went to Outback this time.   Had a good time in Rapid. Bought a bunch of new "toys" for my shop and stocked up on make-up. I can't get the kind I like here and it turned out they had a buy one get one for half price sale. I also found out there are other restaurants with gluten-free menus in Rapid. I'll have to find out how trustworthy they are and I'll let you know.    
  5. Nyc Dining

    NYC is a great place to visit without worrying about eating safely. My latest successes:   -Heartland Brewery (Midtown West location only) Waiter assured me they prep in a separate location with separate mixing bowls, utensils, etc.   -5 Napkin Burger Gluten free buns and separate frier. I've been there 3 or 4 times, no reaction any of the times.     In the past I've also had good luck at -Bistango -Nizza's   I walked past Risotteria but I'm dying to go there next time I'm in the city!   Feel free to add to this list.
  6. I called ahead to make reservations after reading positive reviews online and considering the many dining options available on Hilton Head and nearby. When making the reservations for Christmas Eve dinner for our family of three, I mentioned that I had a gluten and dairy restriction from my doctor. I was assured that there was a gluten free menu and that my requests would be no problem at all. I was thrilled and excited to be having dinner at Red Fish. Upon our arrival, the hostess seated us at a nice table and presented me with a gluten free menu. Our server, C******a, was unfriendly and stoic right off the bat. She sucked the air right out of the room. No smile, no friendly greeting, no statement of her name - just a request for our drink order. I felt uncomfortable with her demeanor, but proceeded to state that I was told on the phone to mention my restrictions. She really made no comment, just grunted. Claudia really pressured us to order, and expressed her frustration at having to answer any questions or wait to take the order. I felt so uncomfortable with her, that I got up to speak to the manager about the experience we were already having. He was arrogant, as well, but said he would speak to her. Minutes later, Claudia came out into the dining room with this syrupy, fake sweetness, that was clearly demeaning to us. After pulling enough information out of C******a to try to place an order, we did. Honestly, I don't even remember what I had for an appetizer. It was not memorable at all. We did have wine, but that wasn't memorable either, and was a selection made without any assistance or recommendations from our server. The entrees came, mine selected from the gluten free menu. I ordered the filet with potato and vegetable. This plate was so devoid of any flavor at all, it was bad. Very bad. Dry shoe leather without any seasoning - not even salt and pepper. Mashed potatoes, that I was assured in a very arrogant manner, were made with only olive oil and garlic, and bland, over-cooked, limp vegetables. Yuck! This meal was so expensive, and it was just bad. I had a couple tastes of the mashed potatoes, and knew right away there was dairy in the potato. The manager came around to see how everything was, and I asked again if there was dairy in the potato. He said yes, and took the plate away. My plate came back with some disgusting green-colored jasmine rice and the rest of my shoe leather meat. The potatoes were replaced with something additional that was not flavorful. I don't know why the jasmine rice was green. Food coloring? The coloring didn't add anything to the taste. The manager did ask how having eaten this restricted food allergen would impact me. Not once did C*****a even apologize for her error or express any concern at all. She never came around again until we were almost ready to go. She said, "Ok. Does everyone have what they need now?" She was just awful. We discussed how serious her mistake could have been to a guest. I made every effort to communicate in a friendly and happy way. I was so excited about this meal with my family. It was a bad experience. I can never recommend this restaurant based on the service, the food, the bad flavor, and the cost for such a disaster, the arrogance of the staff. There are other restaurants on the island and nearby on the mainland that would be worthy of a special meal. This isn't one of them. I wish this restaurant wouldn't have presented itself as one that could cater to special requests with their special menu, when they had no intention of living up to their claim. I would have been satisfied with an apology from our server, but never got that or even a thank you for our business. It was just bad all around. It's ten days later, and nobody else can remember what they ordered there. Really nothing special, just bad. Never again, Red Fish. Next time we will try Robert Irvine's Eat! for a more upscale meal. We had a wonderful meal at Chef David's Roastfish and Cornbread. The staff was knowledgeable and extremely helpful. It was a really enjoyable to eat there.
