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

    • To answer some of your questions.... Non celiac gluten sensitivity does not cause any damage to the small intestine so that is not the source of the "little holes or bumps".  You need to get her records including the report of the endoscopy to see exactly what it says as well as the pathology report of the biopsies. You should always get medical records anyway & keep a copy for yourself. How many biopsies did he take? There should be a minimum of 4, ideally 6. The small intestine is very vast even in a small child. An adults is the size of a tennis court! That's a whole lot of territory so biopsies can miss damage especially when enough of them are not taken! She has 2 positives on the serum panel. This crap about "weak" positives should be thrown out of the nomenclature! A positive is a positive, weak or not! Her DgP IGG is way over the range and extremely telling. As far as my knowledge goes, there is nothing else that causes a positive DgP IGG other than celiac disease. False positives are really rare and to have 2 false positives would be astronomically rare! You are right & smart that she really does need an official diagnosis! IMHO, keep her on gluten for right now. Get a second opinion pronto & I believe you'll be able to get her a dx based on the 4 out of 5 rule if nothing else. I wouldn't think it's going to take more than a month to get to see another doc for a second opinion. Then you can take her off gluten. Kids heal up really fast, way faster than us old geezers! I'm sure as others  wake up & get on their computers they will be along to voice their knowledge. I am in the eastern time zone & rise before the birds so I was on here early. Hang in there mom! You're doing the right thing!
    • Now that my initial rage has calmed a tad.... your daughter has to fulfill 4 out of 5 of the diagnostic criteria. Second opinion can do a gene test. If positive, then she will have4 out of 5 of the dx criteria to dx without a positive biopsy. See: http://www.gastro.org/news_items/a-biopsy-should-not-be-required-to-make-the-diagnosis which says in part: The presence of signs and symptoms compatible with celiac disease. Positive serology screening (high serum levels of anti-TTG and/or EMA). Presence of the predisposing genes HLA-DQ2 and/or –DQ8. Histological evidence of auto-insult of jejunal mucosa typical of celiac disease. Resolution of the symptoms and normalization of serology test following the implementation of a gluten-free diet.   Also see: http://www.tenderfoodie.com/blog/2014/5/1/dr-fasano-on-new-gut-autoimmune-research-autism-clearing-up.html She can get a dx after her symptoms resolve on a gluten-free diet!
    • OMG!!!! The doc wants her to get sicker & sicker & do further damage so he can diagnose her? Don't do me any favors doc!!! I'm so spitting med right now I can't even speak! Find a new doc, take the records & get a second opinion. Maybe the next doc will have a freaking brain & dx your daughter. She should be dx'd! This is absurd in the extreme. The very least that should happen is the doc give her a dx now & then in a year or 2 have her do a gluten challenge & do a biopsy all over again but seriously, that would be just as cruel as what he's doing now. He's an ASS!

    • 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.
