Hi, I was widowed young, 1 1/2 years ago, at 37. I'm now 38 and just as I was finding out that I have genes for celiac, as well as soy and dairy intolerance -- I met a nice fellow here in Atlanta, where I live. He spent most of a Braves game recently combing the stadium for some sort of gluten-free food for me. :D

We had a GREAT experience at Rathbun's in Inman Park -- they have two desserts that are gluten- and soy-free, and one of those is dairy-free, too -- the mango sorbet. They were so NICE about it, the wait staff and the chefs; very happy to oblige.

But other than that and Outback Steakhouse, geez, eating out is so hard. Is there anyone else from Atlanta who can recommend flexible, understanding restaurants here?

Thanks.

I've heard that Ruth'sChris Steakhouse is accommodating to those on a gluten free diet

When we go eat out, I tend to stick to Mexican Restaurants, or Outback. Ritter's in Marietta is also aware of celiac, and recently hosted a luncheon that was strictly gluten free. (for the members of one of the local celiac support groups). I live in Marietta, so I rarely venture into the city... but let's see... oh, I went to a play at the Shakespeare Tavern (dinner theater) and I contacted the chef ahead of time, and she said that one of her friends is celiac, and there were several things on the menu that are gluten-free.

Wow, thank you SO much. I appreciate the tips and will try these places! I should make a list of the stuff at Rathbun's that is gluten-free, too. Will call them and get them to add to what I know and post it.

Thank you again.

You are very welcome! I am seriously enjoying the challenge of finding more restaurants that are celiac friendly... I missed being able to just stop at any restaurant and eat! But I don't miss being sick!

I think that fancier places would be more accommodating and careful about making food gluten free. Some of the fancier places I have been have already had celiacs come to their resturants, so they were already familiar with the precations. At restaurants, I just say "I am celiac and no bread or gluten can touch my food or I will get very sick". I ask for my food to be plain, unless the sauce is gluten-free. I think the more we speak up and familiarize people about celiac, the better eating out will be!

I used to be terrified of eating out, but I've recently given it a try and I've only had good experiences! B)

What about having a date where you cook together? Something that requires teamwork, like making sushi, or gluten-free lasagna? My friends and I, in college, had a great time - socially - making sushi together before eating it.
