Places Recommended In Ct

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.burtonsgrill.com/stores/south-windsor-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.deesonesmartcookie.com/pdf/dees.thanksgivingmenu.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?)

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.

    • Below is copied & pasted from this thread:   My celiac doctor is Dr. Syed Jafri, in Webster, TX (just south of Houston -- basically the Clear Lake City area), saved my LIFE.  I would recommend him to the whole, entire world.  I was desperately ill, and am still struggling, and he's a wonderful, sweet man who listens and is very proactive in helping you solve whatever problems you're having.  I wish all doctors were like him.  I have to fight and struggle with too many doctors to just listen to me and what I live with, day in and day out.  He's not like that.  Good luck to you.     There are recommendations on this thread too:  
    • I never worried about cross contamination because i was originally told i was just intolerant. after going gluten free i felt so much better up until this last march. dairy and fructose have been giving me problems but both lactose and fructose test came back negative.  this is what my gi doctor emailed me today 
    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
