Some of those places are not also in LA (and make me wish I lived closer to SD) - though, of course, Outback, PF Changs, and El Pollo Loco are. (They've got a nice little list for Orange County that I'll find useful... that teahouse; I can't believe I haven't been there!!) I've heard that Rubio's can be accomodating. Depending on where in LA you are, this list may also help.

You definitely have a lot of options in Los Angeles. Practically every place will accomodate the needs of a celiac. I've heard that In N' Out burgers are gluten free (without the bun) along with their french fries. Here are some of the places that I went to:

*King's Road Cafe: Very casual outdoor cafe with a lot of good gluten free salads.

*Les Deux Cafe: A very nice restaurant hidden in a dumpy parking lot. Very expensive but good food. It is organic french country cuisine. A lot of gluten free options and the waiters and waitresses were very aware of celiac disease.

*The Polo Lounge: Excellent place for a celiac. Located inside The Beverly Hills Hotel. They will make anything you want, just tell them your allergies. Let's just say that I went there while I was on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet and I had an assortment of great meals everyday without going hungry.

*Nobu: A Japanese Peruvian restaurant with many options. Just make sure you don't get soy sauce on anything.

*The Ivy: very expensive, famous restaurant. The food is great and most things are made gluten free. They are very aware of celiac disease.

*Locanda Veneta: Italian restaurant with many fish and meat entrees to choose from. It is an organic restaurant and they are very accomdating.

    • Karen, the iodine test was a test for DH used in the 'olden' days. Iodine would be swabbed onto a spot and then it would be covered with a bandage. If someone had DH the iodined area would break out in lesions. I don't know how but we do know iodine can activate the antibodies. That is why some of us with DH have to avoid iodine in foods until the antibodies have cleared the dermis. OP, if you haven't been tested for celiac you should be and if you have active lesions a biopsy done next to a lesion by a DH knowledgable dermatologist may help in diagnosis.
    • The gluten-free diet (GFD) is the only validated treatment for celiac disease (celiac disease), but despite strict adherence, complete mucosal recovery is rarely ... View the full article
    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
