Just curious if anyone has a list of gluten-free restaurants in Durham and/or Raleigh that they could post. I am familiar w/ the bigger chain restaurants (i.e. PF Chang's, Outback, Carraba's, Pei Wei, etc.) but I am trying to locate some other options.

I've come across the following but have not tried or called about either yet, so if anyone knows anything about either, please share your experience:

Mellow Mushroom in Durham is now serving 100% gluten-free wings??

Jibarra is a more upscale mexican/tequila lounge bar offering gluten-free food??

Hello from Raleighwood!

I have not gone to the Mellow Mushroom in quite some time... if they don't have gluten-free pizza I'm not so interested.

I have, however, been to Jibarra a time or two. They don't necessarily have a gluten free menu, but if you ask about it, your server will likely go and ask the chef. That's what they did for me. And they make just about everything there, so it's pretty easy for him to know. There was something he told me not to get b/c they didn't make it there and he couldn't say for sure. (was some sort of cheese) So, I would imagine that he could prepare something differently if necessary.

It is NOT your typical mexican restaurant. It's Oaxacan fine dining. So, if you go, it is fantastic. But be prepared to spend a few bucks. I think it's worth it though. And their drinks are FAB!

I also like to go to Neomonde. It's a Lebanese/Mediterranean restaurant. They have an assortment of salads and stuff, and some hot foods. Most of the stuff is freshly made (like made that morning). There's one off Hillsborough St and one out in Morrisville off of Hwy 54. I eat pretty well there and haven't gotten sick.

Hi,

Check out solas in Raleigh, on Sth Glenwood. We were there this week for a gluten free wine dinner. The food was awesome, the wine was delicious, and the folks there did such a nice job. Cliff Vogelsberg the executive chef really takes care if you let him know you are celiac.

Can't rave enough about it. I think everyone should know about another option for gluten free, fine dining in the triangle.

regards

Noreen

At the Celiac Support group in Raleigh this past week, two reps from Bella Monica Restaurant came and brought samples of their gluten free food. They were wonderful and are very interested in expanding their line of gluten free foods. And, they asked a lot of questions about which pastas they should use and what gluten-free items the members would like to see on the menu. It was wonderful to hear that they wanted to have patrons who can not consume gluten come into their business and feel comfortable eating what they've prepared.

Here is a link to their site ... http://www.bellamonica.com/

My family is planning to check the restaurant out in the next week or two!
