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
