I would love to join, although I can't committ just yet. My good friend who moved to Florida last September is back home that weekend for the first time since she left (and I have not been to visit yet!). So I am not sure what the plan will be and if I will be doing something w/ her that evening...

I will let you know next week if that is ok!

I live in Maine, but getting down to Boston on a Friday would be kind of hard for me until school lets out.

Oh for gosh sake's- I am a PITA- July 7th is my sister's birthday.

Depends where in Maine you are. I live in Portsmouth NH which is about an hour from Boston (but traffic going through the Hampton Tolls is bad on a Friday). We have GREAT restaurants like Radici which is italian but I have never once had a problem with them. Most of the restaurants here are very accomodating.

Hmmm... could anyone do a Thursday. Like Thursday July 6th? I'll just throw it out there.

I live in Southern Maine. Do you have ezpass? The tollbooths are a heck of a lot better if you can jump right past everybody waiting in line for change. I usually take the commuter rail to Boston rather than drive.

Hello everyone,

I don't actually live in your area, so I probably wouldn't be able to get together for a meal (I'm in PA right now), but my family does have a cottage in York Beach, ME and I'm going to be there for the next week. When we're there I spend a lot of time in Portsmouth, Kennebunkport, Perkin's Cove, Ogunquit, etc. I haven't been back there since going gluten free. Do any of you know of restaurants that would be accomodating? I notice that there aren't a lot of chain restaurants with gluten free menus in that area. I'll probably do a decent amount of cooking and packing snacks, but I know that my family will tire of doing that, so if you have any suggestions, I'd really appreciate it.

oh my gosh- I'm so jealous. Thaat's great that you are going to York Beach for a week. Portsmouth has the Outback Steakhouse which has a gluten-free menu (actually, I think they are techincally in Newington) but don't eat there as there are so many places in Portsmouth that are accomodating. Radici is wonderful- I've eaten there several times since going gluten-free and they have always been wonderful. I would suggest calling them in advance just to let them know. Also, the Dolphin Striker is very accomodating. Those are both a little on the pricey side, but worth it.

Let me know if you want other recommendations. Portsmouth also has Thai Paradise and Shalimar Indian both of which I've never had a problem with. I can try to find out about places in York too, but I know that Five-O in Ogunquit is very accomodating too. And go get a massage at the Cliff House if you're up for a little pampering!

Berneses,

Thanks so much for the recommendations! I'm really excited about the trip, and I'm happy that there are so many places in the area that are accomodating because my initial searches didn't turn up many results. It's great to hear recommendations from a local to really know where to go. Of course I know I can have boiled lobster and a baked potato almost anywhere, but I'd like to have a few other options as well. Thanks again!

Nicole

    • Cyclinglady is absolutely correct, after hours of internet research the only gluten-free food available at JNB is a fast food chain called 'Nandos'. I was hoping for a bit more variety, but I'll take what I get.   
    • I'm so confused about my daughter's diagnosis.  I hope somebody can help.   My 4 year old daughter has a swollen belly, stomachaches, and lots of gas.  She does not have diarrhea or delayed growth.  Because of her symptoms and because it runs in the family (2nd degree relatives) I had her tested for celiac.   She was weak positive for TTG (IGA)  and strong positive for DGP (IGG)   TTG (IGA)  8   (0-3 neg, 4-10 weak positive, greater than 10 positive) TTG (IGG)  2   EMA: Negative DGP (IGG)  47  (0-19 negative, 20-30 weak positive, greater than 30 positive) Last week, she had her endoscopy.  The doctor found inflammation and little holes or bumps on her duodenum.  He started her on prevacid and said based on his observations, he was suspicious of celiac, but he would not be able to confirm until the biopsy came back. The biopsy showed no signs of celiac disease.  He said that he could not diagnose her with celiac without the biopsy report saying there was celiac damage.  He said he would categorize her as a potential celiac, keep her on a gluten diet and redo the endoscopy in a year or two to check for damage again.  My questions are: 1.)  If it is not celiac, something is causing her duodenum to be inflamed and have little holes or bumps on it, right?  Could it be a wheat allergy or gluten sensitivity?  What else could it be and how do they test for it?  Given her elevated celiac antibodies, how likely is it to be anything besides celiac causing the damage?  2.)  How likely are false positives for TTG and DGP?  I've heard they are pretty sensitive and specific.  Does getting two positives make false positives less likely? 3.) What have you done in this situation?  I want her to have an official diagnosis to make things easier at school and to feel confident that we are eliminating gluten permanently for a worthy reason, etc.  But, I'm having a hard time imagining keeping her on gluten and waiting for her to get more sick and have more intestinal damage just for a diagnosis.     Thanks in advance for your help.  I'm so overwhelmed and confused.  I hope someone has some insight and experience that will help clear things up for me.            
    • Yeah I actually live in Japan which is pretty similar, because Coeliac disease is rare over here so is the understanding and accommodating it. When I mention Gluten to some restaurants they think I am talking in English and they are unfamiliar with the word in Japanese.    So it seems I can write off my chances of getting some authentic Chinese gluten-free food at the airport, but at least there is a Thai restaurant in T3 so I won't starve. Its called  'Phrik Thai' for future reference. http://en-shopping.bcia.com.cn/store/739.html  
    • While in Boston I found Cheer's  Bloody Mary mix that says gluten-free on the bottle and have had no issues and  tastes pretty good 
    • I always assumed plain coffee was, but I have seen some controversy online about this. I know someone who is gluten free and only buys whole beans and grinds them herself because she doesn't trust how the grounds are processed.
