Dining In Atlanta

Can anyone provide me with some restaurants in the Atlanta area that have gluten free options? The area I am looking for is around the Marriott Marquis hotel.

Any ideas? Thank you..

The Marriott Marquis is downtown. There are several restaurants there including Morton's Steakhouse (be sure to instruct that they not put the au jui on the steak as that contains gluten) Dailey's (be very explicit in your instructions and speak with the chef/manager, not just the waiter). If you take a subway/cab to Buckhead, there are lots of great places to eat. Fogo de Chao (Brazilian steakhouse) - lots of great gluten-free food, beware the mashed potatoes have flour in them, but the meats are fine, the salad bar is exceptional and mostly fine -- the wait staff is very knowledgeable and will be able to help you, Meritage, excellent food, knowledgeable staff, Blue Pointe (excellent food, they should accommodate you), Mambo (Cuban restaurant in Virginia Highlands) very good food, most naturally gluten-free, small kitchen with accommodating chef..

I could go on. Is there something in particular you like? Will you have a car?

Kim.

If you can get a group of (fun) people together, the Imperial Fez (Morroccan) is a lot of fun and very gluten-free friendly.

Twist and Prime (in Lenox and Phipps Plaza) and Goldfish (Perimeter) are all owned by the same company and I've had very good meals at all three, with attentive and knowledgeable wait staff. Never a problem.

Phuket Tai (Buford Highway and N. Druid Hills) very good Tai food.

Downtown, City Grill is pretty expensive and it's been a while since I've been, but I recall it being good, Emerald City, so if you have an expense account, you may want to try it out.

Good luck and happy eating. Kim.

Hi Michelle,

I've had no problems. I explained what was not okay (wheat, etc..) and said I had a food allergy and couldn't have soy sauce. I ate pad tai for sure. We had several items, I can't remember everything, but I didn't have any problems. and the food was really good (and conveniently located for me). Any curry/coconut milk based food will be fine. A lot of times, they have specials that if you ask about them, they're fine. I eat at Tai restaurants when I travel a lot and never have problems. (I should say, I am very sensitive and get sick from the slightest amount of gluten so I am neurotically careful). Kim.

Great news about the resturants in Atlanta, especially around the Marriott, as my husband is a Celiac. We will be there for a convention in September. Any suggestions on inexpensive eating places in the general area? Also, any suggestions on what to pack for food that will last a few days incase we don't have time to get out to a real resturant? We don't much care for McDonalds or Burger king because my husband can't handle greasy, oily foods. Thanks for your help.

Wife of a Celiac, Jean

Jean, which Marriott are you staying at -- if you let me know, I can recommend places near you (I assume you'll want walking distance? or will you have a car?). Kim, Atlanta

Hi Kim,

We'll be staying at Atlanta Marriott Marquis. Would prefer walking distance. That way we don't have to pay so much in parking.

Thanks, Jean

    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.  
    • I'm glad I found these forums!  I will spend some more time this evening reading through them.  But I wanted to get my question out there just to see if anyone else might have answers quicker than I can sift through the forum for them.      I've been feeling terrible for about a year, and after an elimination diet last month, figured out that if nothing else, gluten/wheat is a problem.  After lots of research, I abandoned the elimination diet and added gluten back in, so that I could get tested for Celiac.   I was off gluten for 3 weeks, from mid-June until early July.  I've had it back in my diet for almost 3 weeks now.    My question is this: Since I was off gluten for 3 weeks, and now back on for almost 3, is that enough time on to yield a positive Celiac blood test, if that indeed is what I have?  All the research I've done says 4-6 weeks for a gluten challenge, but is that really necessary if I was only not eating it for 3 weeks?  I am desperate to get this testing done and over with.  I feel terrible all the time and getting through the day is a struggle.  My doctor ran allergy panels already and everything came back clear except for a mild wheat allergy.  So if nothing else, I'll have to give up wheat for sure at the end of all this.  I get the feeling she doesn't know a ton about Celiac though, so I'm doing a lot of the research on my own. Any advice or information would be so appreciated! 
    • Hi Michael, That's quite a spike in blood pressure!  I haven't tested that myself and don't want to if it means I have to eat gluten.  Blood pressure testing to identify food reactions is something that has come up before.  It sounds like it might be possible but I don't know how much study has been done on it.  Probably not much since it is such a simple, straight forward idea. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Megan, Did the doctor test you for celiac disease?  You really shouldn't go gluten-free until all the testing for celiac disease is completed.  It is a little odd for a doctor to tell you to go gluten-free for no reason IMHO.  Did he/she explain the reason for it? Personally, I have learned over the years what I can eat safely and what I can't.  Occasionally I get hit but it is rare.  Simplifying your diet is a good first step.  Avoiding processed foods for a while and dairy also is good.  I suggest any change you make last for a month at least. Then try the food again. If you are eating 100 random ingredients/foods each day it is hard to figure these things out.  If you reduce it to a much smaller number of foods then things become simpler. Welcome to the forum!
