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.

    • I'm actually scared to go to the doctor and could use some advice
      Hi Elle, The celiac testing process usually includes a blood test for gliaden antibodies first, and then an endoscopy to take biopsy samples of the small intestine to check for damage.  So while it's good to get the celiac panel done, don't go gluten-free until the whole testing process (including endoscopy) is completed. Vitamin deficits are a problem in celiac disease, so that issue does match up.  Anxiety and digestion problems are common too.  Celiac is tied to a few genes, so if your mom has it, you might have it also or might develop it at some point in life. Don't be too scared of it if it does turn out to be celiac disease.  The gluten-free diet can be a big change but the end result of it is you'll feel better.  You'll probably end up eating better more nutritious food than most people also. Celiac is a great disease in one way, because we know the trigger (gluten) and can treat ourselves with diet.  Most times doctors don't know the cause of autoimmune diseases and can't do anything but medicate the patient.  Our medicine is food.  Yum!

      You are welcome Chris.  The vitamin D council site linked below has info on how much vitamin D we need and how much sun is needed to get it, what foods contain it etc.  Around my neck of the woods I can only get UVB rays (needed to make Vitamin D in skin) from 10 am to 2 pm.  So a food source or vitamin pill is a good option,  Especially in winter when you probably won't get any V-D from sun exposure.  Foods sources are mackeral, salmon, tuna and a few plants like spinach and kale.  You can find a review of various V-D brands on the labdoor website.  Some pills are useless so it pays to verify you are taking a good one. http://www.vitamindcouncil.org/about-vitamin-d/ https://labdoor.com/rankings/vitamin-d  
    • Eeek confused! Positive biopsy, negative blood test???
      Sealy-yak - Can you confirm if they did the Full Celiac Panel? Some Celiac blood tests are more reliable than others.   
    • Eeek confused! Positive biopsy, negative blood test???
      the whole celiac/doctor issue is as frustrating as it is common, unfortunately   my gp, who knows full well that i have celiac, tried to give me this new 'miracle drug' for ibs-d when i told him i was still having indigestion/inflammation for seemingly no reason.  "it's expensive, but i have a coupon for the first month"  O BOY LUCKY ME!  i told him, ok, that i would try it.  (i think i have an idea of what my problem is and i originally asked for something different to try to see if it would work.  he didn't even know what it was)  i'm not gonna try it.  it's a narcotic, it has side effects i don't need or are the same as my symptoms.  i'm gonna switch doctors.  and switch doctors again and again until i find one that KNOWS MORE ABOUT THIS THAN ME.  on top of that, they computerized all their records, which i have been going there for 20 years, ASKING WHAT I'M ALLERGIC TO!  i said:   umm, don't you have that in my MEDICAL RECORDS??!!  well, we have your paper records.  i said, i'm HERE.  don't ya think ya shoulda pulled my file out??  i mean, y'all knew i was coming.  you know, the appointment thing....... LOLZ yeah, i've been gluten free for 6 years, and this clown tells me 'you know, you can't drink beer'  i said yes i can.  he says no, you can't.  i said why not?  because of the alcohol, haha?  no, because it has hops in it and if you're celiac, you can't have hops.  i said it's BARLEY.  O MY GOSH!!!!!!!!!!!!  i said, you're the doctor.  rolled my eyes and left. welcome to the board  sorry for all the yelling, lolz.  
    • Eeek confused! Positive biopsy, negative blood test???
      Thank you! My PA said that she still thinks it's celiac....but I don't feel like she's fully explained why. Some people are hard to get a solid answer out of! I think I'm gonna get a second opinion somewhere else.....appreciate the feedback. Makes me feel a little less crazy

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
