Gluten Free Restaurants In Va (reston Town Center?)
0

9 posts in this topic

I know I'm getting really specific here, but does anyone know of any gluten free restaurants in at Reston Town Center (in Reston VA)? I'm traveling to a hotel there for work, and I will not have a car to drive around in. I'll have to walk to this area to eat every night. Thanks for any help!

There is a Wegmans' grocery store in Fairfax also, but you need a car or cab to go there.

If you can catch a ride to a metro stop, you go to a lot of areas in and around DC for not too much money. They have a day pass for $11.80 good for all day.

Metro's site has a trip planner that will tell you the time for a trip and the cost, using metro only or metro and bus.

This thread has some info on DC gluten-free restaurants. Uno's Pizza and Z-Pizza both have gluten-free pizza. I'd check ahead of time with the store to make sure before going, as they may not all have it yet.

If you are there over the weekend, you might enjoy checking out the Artomatic show, opening this Friday evening. It's a free show, and right across the street from the Navy Yard Metro stop. 1000 artists and 9 floors of art, lots of free events and performances too.

Big Bowl (thai and Chinese) I eat there semi-regularly, just ask for their gluten free menu. There's also an Unos (w/ a gluten-free menu), and I've been safe at Rio Grande (next to Big Bowl). There's another Thai place called basura but I can't guarantee they're gluten-free (language barrier). There's also a cupcake place called Edible Incredible's that is introducing gluten-free cupcakes in either June or July.

Great info and thank you all for posting the question and responses.

I have been recently diagnosed with Celiacs and hoped to connect with others in the community to learn from their experiences. Can anyone point me in the direction of a local group or some other way to learn more?

I just looked into the Reston Town Center because I'm looking for places to take my parents for lunch.

What I found was that almost every restaurant there claims to be able to cater to a gluten-free diet (according to their websites).

Heres the safe-list:

Uno's

McCormick & Schmick's

Jackson Mighty Fine Food - Lucky

Vaipano

American Tap Room

Morton's

Big Bowl

Uncle Julio's

Paolo's

M&S Grill and Steakhouse

Clyde's

Mon Ami Gabi

If you are like me, and super sensitive, then I would be careful about eating at Chipotle. They say they can do gluten free, but they also say that they work a lot with flour tortillas and cannot guarantee cross-contamination won't happen. They mention they are willing to change their gloves for you, but considering how prevalent the use of flour tortillas is there, I would not order from that restaurant.

Ate at Vapiano's last week. It's a pasta place. Definitely not gluten free unless it's the salads you're looking for... then, any place could be considered gluten free...

    • OMG!!!! The doc wants her to get sicker & sicker & do further damage so he can diagnose her? Don't do me any favors doc!!! I'm so spitting med right now I can't even speak! Find a new doc, take the records & get a second opinion. Maybe the next doc will have a freaking brain & dx your daughter. She should be dx'd! This is absurd in the extreme. The very least that should happen is the doc give her a dx now & then in a year or 2 have her do a gluten challenge & do a biopsy all over again but seriously, that would be just as cruel as what he's doing now. He's an ASS!
    • Celiac disease may lead to a host of other inflammatory, gluten-related ... Fortunately, Diet Doc offers gluten-free diet plans which are customized to ... View the full article
    • Cyclinglady is absolutely correct, after hours of internet research the only gluten-free food available at JNB is a fast food chain called 'Nandos'. I was hoping for a bit more variety, but I'll take what I get.   
    • I'm so confused about my daughter's diagnosis.  I hope somebody can help.   My 4 year old daughter has a swollen belly, stomachaches, and lots of gas.  She does not have diarrhea or delayed growth.  Because of her symptoms and because it runs in the family (2nd degree relatives) I had her tested for celiac.   She was weak positive for TTG (IGA)  and strong positive for DGP (IGG)   TTG (IGA)  8   (0-3 neg, 4-10 weak positive, greater than 10 positive) TTG (IGG)  2   EMA: Negative DGP (IGG)  47  (0-19 negative, 20-30 weak positive, greater than 30 positive) Last week, she had her endoscopy.  The doctor found inflammation and little holes or bumps on her duodenum.  He started her on prevacid and said based on his observations, he was suspicious of celiac, but he would not be able to confirm until the biopsy came back. The biopsy showed no signs of celiac disease.  He said that he could not diagnose her with celiac without the biopsy report saying there was celiac damage.  He said he would categorize her as a potential celiac, keep her on a gluten diet and redo the endoscopy in a year or two to check for damage again.  My questions are: 1.)  If it is not celiac, something is causing her duodenum to be inflamed and have little holes or bumps on it, right?  Could it be a wheat allergy or gluten sensitivity?  What else could it be and how do they test for it?  Given her elevated celiac antibodies, how likely is it to be anything besides celiac causing the damage?  2.)  How likely are false positives for TTG and DGP?  I've heard they are pretty sensitive and specific.  Does getting two positives make false positives less likely? 3.) What have you done in this situation?  I want her to have an official diagnosis to make things easier at school and to feel confident that we are eliminating gluten permanently for a worthy reason, etc.  But, I'm having a hard time imagining keeping her on gluten and waiting for her to get more sick and have more intestinal damage just for a diagnosis.     Thanks in advance for your help.  I'm so overwhelmed and confused.  I hope someone has some insight and experience that will help clear things up for me.            
    • Yeah I actually live in Japan which is pretty similar, because Coeliac disease is rare over here so is the understanding and accommodating it. When I mention Gluten to some restaurants they think I am talking in English and they are unfamiliar with the word in Japanese.    So it seems I can write off my chances of getting some authentic Chinese gluten-free food at the airport, but at least there is a Thai restaurant in T3 so I won't starve. Its called  'Phrik Thai' for future reference. http://en-shopping.bcia.com.cn/store/739.html
