Hi all,

My husband and I will be in Boston the weekend of the 24th and are looking for an up-scale restaurant for Sat night. We already have reservations at the Elephant Walk (with gluten-free menu) for Friday night.

I know what you are thinking..... any 'up-scale' place can do great gluten-free food on request. True, but I am interested in hearing of some specific examples of good (ie not TOO much hassle) experiences.

Thanks,

Pam

Call the Executive Chef at the Four Seasons, Boston.

I had a wonderful gluten-free meal there at a charity event. They gave me what everyone else was being served, but prepared it gluten-free.

I'm sure they could assit you, and there is a great view... right on Boston Common/The Public Garden... be sure to request a window seat!

Good Luck!

Joe's American Bar and Grill...not real upscale, but nice and down on Long Wharf, right on the Harbor. It's a local chain. I had my first meal as a diagnosed Celiac there and the waiter was very attentive and concerned and the manager came over and checked on my needs, as well.

There's also a PF Changs in the Park Plaza, I believe.

Good luck!

Pam,

Did you go to the Elephant Walk the weekend of the 24th?

I was going to make a reservation for my anniversary. Any feedback would be great!

Ruth,

Yes! We went and it was wonderful! They have three sections on their gluten free menu: 1) foods from the regular menu that are already gluten free 2) dishes that can be made gluten free with a substitution or two and 3) dishes that must be ordered 24 hours in advance to be made gluten free. I would not bother with the ordering ahead issue, because there were lots of great choices in the other two catagories. I had seafood salad for an app and seared tuna with two sauces for the entree. Fun food, too- Cambodian/French. I highly recommend The Elephant Walk!

We also dined at Spire, downtown in the NineZero hotel. Very fancy and also wonderful. The chef came out to consult with me and we had a nice chat about gluen-free diet restrictions. I had to set him straight because he thought that potatoes had gluten! But, to his credit, he did know that spelt, as well as wheat, rye, barley are off limit.

Have Fun!

Pam

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
