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

    • Below is copied & pasted from this thread:   My celiac doctor is Dr. Syed Jafri, in Webster, TX (just south of Houston -- basically the Clear Lake City area), saved my LIFE.  I would recommend him to the whole, entire world.  I was desperately ill, and am still struggling, and he's a wonderful, sweet man who listens and is very proactive in helping you solve whatever problems you're having.  I wish all doctors were like him.  I have to fight and struggle with too many doctors to just listen to me and what I live with, day in and day out.  He's not like that.  Good luck to you.     There are recommendations on this thread too:  
    • I never worried about cross contamination because i was originally told i was just intolerant. after going gluten free i felt so much better up until this last march. dairy and fructose have been giving me problems but both lactose and fructose test came back negative.  this is what my gi doctor emailed me today 
    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
