I trust you guys more than the restaurant-finders online.
Can y'all help me compile a list of places in the Northern Virginia/D.C. area?
From the search I did on this site, I already have:
Legal Seafoods ... Spartan's
Austin Grill ... Maggiano's
Bonefish Grill ... Essential Grille (Rte 7)
Rustico ... Mike's American Grill
Z Pizza ... Silverado
Noodles & Co. ... Carlyle Grand (Shirlington)
Don Pablos ... Coastal Flats
McCormick & Schmick's... Buffalo Wing Factory (dedicated fryer)
WingN ... Ruth's Chris
Clyde's ... Artie's
Blue Iguana(Fair Lakes) ... Sweetwater
Cashions Eat Place ... Bangkok 54 (Columbia Pike)
Jaleo...Oyamel
Zaytinya...Cafe Atlantico
California Tortilla...lilit cafe
The Tombs...Pho 75 (Rosslyn)...Ted's Montana Grill

and obviously there will be the nationwide chains like Outback and Chili's and Olive Garden, etc.

But, out in California, they are all WHOLE GRAIN crazy and so I think the East Coast will have MORE to offer! I'm excited!

I'm in your new part of the country but not close enough to give info. Going by your list, I've been to Maggiano's and Bonefish in our area and I recommend them. I have multiple allergies and Maggianos will go totally off the menu and make whatever I want, within reasons, as long as they have the ingredients on hand. They're well trained. I have been to Don Pablos in our area and I will no longer go there. I had serious problems with product changes and the staff not initially being aware of it until I really grilled the manager and learned more. Plus they make tortillas in the front. I'm just too sensitive and there are too many opportunities for CC IMHO.

Proverbs 25:16 "Hast thou found honey? eat so much as is sufficient for thee, lest thou be filled therewith, and vomit it."
Job 30:27 My bowels boiled, and rested not: the days of affliction prevented me.

My current bad list is: gluten, dairy, sulfites, coffee (the devil's brew), tea, Bug's Bunnies carrots, garbanzo beans of pain, soy- no joy, terrible turnips, tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, and hard work. have a good day! :-) Paul

pf changs
panera bread
buzz bakery (this is next door to rustico and owned by the same people. their brownie is YUMMY!)
zpizza is decent (they charge an extra $4 for gluten-free and you can only get the small sized pizza...but decent if you're craving pizza)
five guys (no bun obv. and the fries are safe from CC since nothing else is fried)

MOM's organic store on mt vernon ave in alexandria is awesome. they have more and more gluten-free items everytime i go in there.

I don't live in that part of VA, but I'm jealous. DC has TONS of gluten free restaurants. You will also have Whole Foods and Trader Joe's for gluten free grocery shopping.
