no worries! I'll be happy to 'read all about it' whenever you get a chance. Thanks
OK.....here is a link to the website for the Rhode Island dining group I belong to. They have an abundant listing of restaurants, bakeries, etc. that are in New England and cater to Celiacs. I have not been to all of them yet but the ones I have checked out were all very good. The August gathering is at an Indian restaurant and, after checking their on-line menu, was amazed to see that most of it is gluten-free! The link: gluten-free restaurants-New England
The couple who started this all up deserve an award for their efforts. The wife is the Celiac and they go and talk to restaurant owners in depth to set these events up. They do an outstanding job.
The Rancho Chico Mexican restaurant has excellent food and I am not even a huge fan of Mexican food! They get it right. Check out all the listings and if anyone has questions, fire away. I think the goal of the group is to dine at ALL the gluten-free places!
The other place I love, and it is VERY high end, is this....Rialto.
It is a special occasion restaurant because it is pricey but they have an extensive gluten-free menu, which is not listed on their website. The waitstaff were very knowledgeable about celiac disease so that's a huge plus. A word of warning....this is one of those high end, small portion type of places. They offer up and encourage courses so that by the time you get through 3-5 courses, you are full. I always mention this because some people get very upset when they dine out and don't get enough food for an army!
The chef was a devotee' of Julia Child so it's that kind of gourmet. The food is outstanding and the gluten-free menu is separate from the main menu so there's no mix-ups. The gluten-free menu is very similar to the non-gluten-free menu so you'll get an idea of what to expect. Why they do not advertise more heavily that they service the gluten-free community, I don't know.
I do know it can be a wait for reservations on a week-end. It's easy to find....Harvard Square in Boston, Mass., right down the street from Harvard University.
Hope some of you can make it to try these places out. Many are located right off or close to a major highway so getting there is easy enough. Enjoy!
