Master List Of Exclusively Gluten-Free Restaurants?

36 posts in this topic

I was wondering if there was any nationwide directory of restaurants that only serve gluten-free food? I was curious because I find them rather hard to find and it seems like there should be a few out there!

We have one in Melbourne Florida called the Bald Strawberry.  I havn't tried it yet, but really want to!   I found it on tripadvisor and right now it is the number one ranked restaurant in the area!

There are a few places around here but not STRICTLY gluten-free. There is one that specializes in vegan and gluten free, but also makes vegan goodies made with gluten. not sure why?

Hahahahaha. I normally don't read this thread because I don't believe there is such a thing as a restaurant that can serve both gluten and gluten-free foods. But then I started thinking that it might be worthwhile to track down any restaurants that are 100% gluten free, and then plan a vacation around them. Could you imagine - eating out for lunch and dinner every day!?!?

There is one in Durham, NC too - a Mexican place called Dos Perros. They had a post on their website announcing they'd made their entire kitchen gluten free, but seem to have removed it, probably due to lawyers. They say that everything made in house - their mole thickened with corn instead of wheat flour, their calamari in gluten-free flour instead of wheat batter - is gluten-free. They do sell desserts made off site with gluten, and of course beer. I still won't eat chips or tortillas at this point in my healing process, but everything else there was pretty darn good.

I don't know of any restaurants, but I know there are exclusively gluten-free bakeries just outside of Pittsburgh and DC, and south of San Francisco.

I was diagnosed last Friday with Celiac Disease. We had our vacation to Siesta Key, Florida booked a year ago, including a load of dining coupons from corporate perks. It was going to be a fabulous vacation of happy hour by day and fine dining at night but....now we will have to eat at the condo for every meal. This sucks, unless there are restaurants in Sarasota or Siesta Key that are 100% Gluten Free. Anyone know???

Idgy's in South Yarmouth, MA (Cape Cod) is entirely gluten-free. We just got back from vacation and ate there twice. The inside is small with only a handful of two-person tables, but larger groups or families could get meals to go. They have a good selection of breakfast and lunch items. Unfortunately they used latex gloves for food prep, so I was not able to try any of their baked goods due to a latex allergy. But in terms of eating without worries of gluten cc, it was great for my daughter.

I Heart Muffins Bakery in Hurst, Texas.  http://www.iheartmuffinsbakery.com/  They can do pizzas and hand pies, and really anything if you call ahead!  Everything I have had there is the bomb and they do other allergens, too.

The bakery near DC is the Happy Tart, in Alexandria, VA. They have a fantastic rotating selection, and everything I've had there is amazing!

Not totally gluten-free but they have 2 kitchens, one for gluten-free only.  They asked if we needed a gluten-free menu before they asked anything else.  When the waitress brought out our food, she brought out the gluten stuff first, went back, washed her hands, brought the gluten-free meals out.  The food is FANTASTIC too!!!

    • How effective is HD skin biopsy after being gluten free for a year
      DH is celiac disease that appears on the skin (gluten triggered).  It does not appear when you are consuming dairy, which sounds like a separate issue for you.   A DH biopsy requires active lesions (new/fresh) from consuming gluten.  So, if you want to be tested via a skin biopsy you must go back on gluten.  Finding a dermatologist who knows exactly how to biopsy for DH is often difficult.  Be sure your Derm is knowledable and has biopsied for DH before. Why no endoscopy for now?  I bet your GI  knows that your insurance will deny the endoscopy.  After all, you tested negative to the blood panel.  Your GI should not even ordered the blood panel knowing that you had been gluten free for months.  You have to be consuming gluten daily for 8 to 12 weeks for the blood test to be accurate.   Did you ever test positive?  Why did your primary diagnose you?  Having the gene just means you can develop celiac disease.  Some 30% of the population carries the genes.  The gene test should only be used to help rule out celiac disease.  
    • How effective is HD skin biopsy after being gluten free for a year
      No one can say exactly how long you might be able to get a positive dh biopsy after having been gluten free as long as you have been. The Chicago Celiac Disease Center says this: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/im-scheduled-to-have-a-skin-biopsy-to-screen-for-celiac-disease-should-i-maintain-a-gluten-containing-diet-similar-to-those-who-are-being-screened-via-blood-or-intestinal-biopsy/ http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-is-a-gluten-challenge/ You said you had a flare of the plaque psoriasis -- that is NOT dh so why do you think the dh biopsy will show positive? Testing positive for the celiac genes does not mean you have celiac disease. 30+% of the population have the celiac genes but only very, very small fraction of those people do or will present with celiac disease. The gene tests are only used to rule OUT celiac NOT to diagnose it. Frankly, I can understand why your GI does not put any stock in your Primary doc's thinking you have celiac disease. A positive celiac gene and the boils in your armpits which the GI never saw and were never biopsied for dh but they resolved on a gluten free diet and so did your plaque psoriasis. That's all the GI has to go on. I don't know why you are pushing an endoscopy. If you've been eating strictly gluten free then an endoscopic biopsy for celiac will be negative.  Your PCP should have done a celiac blood panel on you back when you were still eating gluten rather than dx you based on the celiac gene you tested positive for.
    • How effective is HD skin biopsy after being gluten free for a year
      I've been gluten free for a year now and my gastro wants to wait for the endocopy until I'm eligible for the colonoscopy when I turn 50 later this year. I don't think she believes I have celiac, even though I tested positive for one of the genes associated with celiac and my primary has diagnosed me as having celiac. The gluten sensitivity blood tests came back negative, of course, since I was gluten free for 9 months at that time. Why is she waiting? At any rate, My digestive system has improved greatly, but when I reintroduced non fat Greek yogurt in my diet, the plaques psoriasis returned on my elbows. My primary believes it is dermatitis herpetiformis (as well as I, since before going gluten free, I used to get boils in my armpits) and I'm scheduled for a skin biopsy in 3 weeks. However, I eliminated dairy from my diet 4 weeks ago and the plaques psoriasis is healing like it did when I eliminated gluten from my diet a year ago. If the scar is reduced to eczema, does that mean there still are IGA deposits in my skin? I don't want to resume dairy since I experienced a cross reaction to the casein in cheese and found lactose was on that same list. So my question is, how long do the granular IGA deposits remain in the skin in order to have a valid skin biopsy test performed for dermatitis herpetiformis? Since it takes 1-2 years for dermatitis herpetiformis to heal on a gluten free diet and I just had a recent flare up, can I continue on my dairy free diet or should I resume eating non fat Greek yogurt for the next 3 weeks just for this skin biopsy?
    • Celiac Night Vision
      Thanks Cristiana. It was Mistyx7 and night driving. Migraine type is very personal but does not appear to be closely connected to celiac or my peculiar scotomas. If you think going gluten-free has improved it that deserves a separate topic!
    • Burning Sensation
      The last post was from 2011.   if you can eat a regular pizza crust with no issue, then gluten isn't your problem.  You might want to look for something else.  The amount of gluten in a beer or fryer cc is very very small compared to eating a pizza crust.   I am assuming you do not have Celiac disease.

      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.
