Hi everyone.

New to the boards and site, this is my first post.

One of my best friends has Celiac's Disease and her reaction is extremely severe.  She's mapped out acceptable places for her where she lives in CA, but is coming to visit here in Philadelphia near year's end.

I was hoping that someone might be able to tell me some of their preferred gluten-free/celiac-safe eateries in the greater Philadelphia area so that when she's here she doesn't need to stress about possible contamination.

Thanks in advance for any tips.

-J

Hi, and welcome to the board:)

I live in South Jersey, just outside of Philadelphia. There is a nice little dedicated gluten free bakery on S 9th St, in the Italian Market called Taffets. They have excellent breads, rolls, biscotti and they do cakes to order.

In the general area, check out Red Robbin, Outback Steakhouse, PF Changs, Elevation Burger, and Zinburger. Not sure of the locations that would be nearest to you, but I have had good luck with any that I've been to-- of course, and as always, let the server know of your needs before ordering.

gluten free philly just launched an app, so I'd highly suggest that if you have an Iphone  :)

 

I personally haven't used the app because I have an android phone  <_< but his blog is great, so I would hope the app lives up to his high quality.

Jerseyangel, thanks a ton.  In your experience, are the chains you've listed ones that have gluten free options or are they also ones with good separation of foods/kitchen practices that reduce the possibility of cross contamination?

Thanks!
