So I ran into someone today who has a family member with celiac disease and we started talking about places to eat. To make a long story short, she highly recommended a couple of places and I thought I'd share.

 

Burton's Grill in South Windsor  http://site.burtonsg...ndsor-ct/#menus

I am told that they have a dedicated grill/kitchen area.

 

Dee's One Smart Cookie in Glastonbury  http://www.deesonesmartcookie.com/

According to their site... "Dee's One Smart Cookie is the only non-GMO bakery in New England that is devoted 100% to the production of gluten free, dairy free, tree nut free, peanut free and soy free products!

They also have a Thanksgiving menu if you are local! http://www.deesonesm...ngmenu.1013.pdf

 

If anyone has any place to recommend in CT, I'd love to here from you.

Indeed! There's the Engine 6 Pizza company in Norwich, never gotten sick there.

They do calzones, pizza, breadsticks, nothing fried.

 

There's Elizabeth's in Rocky Hill, they serve fresh tapioca cheese rolls and can make

almost anything on the menu gluten free. It's an Italian/Portuguese place, large portions

with rich heavy sauces, gluten free pasta.

 

Shoreline Diner in Guilford, SWEET POTATO FRIES! Plus really good sandwiches

and gluten free breakfast foods, the regular french fries are somewhat lackluster in

my opinion.

 

Cafe on Broadway in North Haven, breakfast/lunch place. Over half the kitchen is

dedicated gluten free, pancakes, sandwiches, fries, baked goods occasionally.

 

The Home Restaurant in Branford. Best french fries ever, served with special house

made dipping sauces. Pasta, fancy meat preparations, decent burgers, onion rings-

woot! Very tasty food, though a bit pricey.

 

I second the recommendation for Burton's. They are truly fantastic. Dee's is a nice

bakery too, although oddly I very much disliked their actual sandwich bread when I

tried it, which to be fair was a few years ago now.

I used to eat at Engine 6 when I worked in Norwich. That was before gluten-free. As a matter of fact, when I was a kid my Grandma lived about two blocks from there. (Now, which emoticon do I use to indicate nostalgia?)

gluten-free since June, 2011

Can't eat soy, corn, or foods high in salicylates.

Nightshades now seem to bother me too.

 

BUT I CAN STILL PLAY MY GUITAR AND THAT"S ALL THAT MATTERS!

I am newly diagnosed this week 11/27 so I have to start building my library. On the day of diagnosis I was starving and about to do the Thanksgiving food shopping. I was by the West Farms Mall where there is an Olive Garden and a Red Robin. Olive Garden's menu says it has pasta and red marinara sauce. I am avoiding this now due to acid issues, so I went to Red Robin. They have a gluten-free menu which they update monthly at each location. I opted for sweet potato fries and a burger no bun. They do have a gluten-free bun but I have never liked buns !  They told me that the fryer is dedicated for just the gluten free items.I did eat quite I bit. I am still not feeling well since my endoscopy 11/13 and have issues with feeling ill if I eat a large enough volume of food, so I cant comment on any cross contamination issues, but the waitress was very nice and went over all the choices.
