Where in LA? There are PF Changs and Outbacks all over the place. (Check yahoo yellow pages for the addresses.) There may well be other restaurants, like mexican places, that you can work with the staff to find something you can have. I'm sure you'll find places, but for specific recommendations, it's helpful to know where in LA you're going to be. (It's a big sprawling mess down here... ;-) )

Don't worry too much. There are more restaurants than you can shake a stick at in LA, and more health conscious, special diet options than you might think. Can be tricky to find them, but some web searches will help.

For starters, there's a PF Changs (they have a gluten-free menu) at the Beverly Center (121 N. La Cienega Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90048. (310) 854-6467).

There's an Outback Steakhouse (they have a gluten-free menu) ten miles from there in Burbank (1761 N. Victory Place, Burbank, CA 91504 (818)567-2717).

This site, http://www.vegparadi...estaurants.html, lists vegetarian restaurants, which I put as an option because they can be more accustomed to vegans asking about ingredients and are likely to be more knowledgeable about those ingredients. (No guarantees they'll help, but they're an option.)

There's a Whole Foods (which is an upscale health-food store - good selection, but can be pricey) a few miles from there (6350 West 3rd Street, Los Angeles, CA 90036, 323.964.6800).

A touch farther than that is Bristol Farms (even more upsclale than Whole Foods) though I doubt they'd have a much larger selection of gluten-free stuff than Whole Foods (7880 Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90046, (323) 874-6301).

From the looks of things, the Bonaventure's restaurants also could probably handle your requests - particularly if you call ahead of time and let them know about it. I'm sure a google search will find you other resources. You could try calling the Celiac Disease Foundation, based in LA at (818) 990-2354, but I don't know how helpful they will be. But this list of links, http://www.celiac.org/connections.htm, that they list might have some useful people on it.

Good luck! I'm sure with a little bit of attention, you'll be fine.
