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...

    • Hello, I have frequent canker sores (roughly comes back every couple of months). Some blood test results are as following. Component Your Value Standard Range TISSUE TRANSGLUTAMINASE IgG 0.31 Index <=0.90 Index Tissue transglutaminase IgA 0.96 Index <=0.90 Index My doctor said that result is unspecific, and I unlikely have celiac disease, since I do not have other abdominal symptoms. For reference, I do have frequent constipation, excessive gas, frequent canker sore, etc. Do you think an upper endoscopy is recommended? I am a little hesitate considering the risk of this procedure and the fact that my symptoms are not that bad. I appreciate all suggestions.  
    • Hello, I see you posted this a long while ago, and perhaps--I hope-- it's no longer a matter of concern, but I thought I'd mention that shortly before I was diagnosed for celiac's, I had distinct yellow blotches on the corners of my eyelids toward my nose. Some months after I had stopped eating gluten, the yellow gradually went away, and--as it just reappeared now several years later, I googled the issue again.  I am only speculating here, but I do believe it is related to liver problems, which, in turn, are related to celiac's. I don't think liver function tests cover all aspects of liver health. I say this because when I was pregnant I developed a temporary liver condition called interhepatic colestasis of pregnancy (ICP), but my liver function tests had been fine. (The condition is diagnosed based on bile levels in the blood, not on liver function). I discovered upon some research that (of course!) ICP  can be associated with celiac's disease.  My hunch is this-- that celiac's presents two problems to the liver: 1) the malabsorption of nutrients--esp. Vit. K2-- that are vital liver health; 2) since gluten registers as a toxin to the immune system (I think?), perhaps the liver gets overloaded processing so much toxic material. Or perhaps there's some other reason. At any rate, poor liver health and celiac's do seem to be linked, according to a few articles I've found. Anyway, hope your problems are resolved now.  
    • my daughter did stool test from enterolab but this gluten sensitive blood test is from http://requestatest.com/tests/search    
    • OK, was your daughter tested by a doctor or did you do one of these order online stool tests? And the same question goes for your tests. Can you give a link to the company?
    • NO. Approx. 1/3 of the population carries the genes for celiac but that does NOT mean they will ever present with celiac. Only a small percentage of them will. A gene test is really used more to rule out celiac rather than to diagnose it. What I meant was that since your daughter is diagnosed and IF you carry one or both of the celiac genes then there is a greater chance you are celiac or "early stages" especially in light of your symptoms. All 3 of those factors weighed together was what I was referring to.
