Moving From West Coast To East Coast

5 posts in this topic

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.

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.

    • Thanks for replying. You've been very helpful and given me some ideas of trying a few foods in small amounts. I wish I had rotated food months ago then it might not have got so bad. Thanks again and I wish you well.
    • Until my recent blood test results I've been having cinnamon and mint tea in the mornings, which seemed to have a positive effect calming the digestive system (and tastes good too!)  After the first step of diagnosis with high Iga TTg I took at look at the cinnamon sticks I make the tea with and it says "packed in a factory that may contain wheat, corn etc. etc." so that I guess would sound alarm bells for many I reckon. That said I'd imagine the way most of these herbs and spices are harvested isn't exactly gluten-free friendly yet I've seen quite a few recipes using it. How are people getting around this as I can't see any specific gluten-free certified cinnamon products out there? Really could do with my tea back P.S. I also have chamomile tea using the raw flowers which may have a similar background but seem to be less of a risk somehow?
    • If I do have to go back on gluten for a bit it'll at least be a temporary relief from the withdrawal symptoms (or at least what I hope are just withdrawal symptoms). Today's returning malady is acid reflux, something I'd thought I'd seen the back of recently. Really need that to calm down as PPIs the doctor gave before were evil medication and caused 10x more problems, possibly the worst I've ever felt whilst on those so won't be going back there! Although the scales seem to have stabilised in terms of weight loss in myself I feel like I'm wasting away at present, what with the random pulling sensations in muscles and tender head area I'm just scared for what other illnesses may be laying in wait related to the celiac genes  Think I'll head back for the ESR and CRP blood tests next week as the shoulder and temple pains are really worrying me right now, could just be the gluten intolerance but the other options are terrifying if not caught early. So much uncertainty, apart from the fact that none of this ever gets fully better (if at all)...
    • You're welcome! Good luck! And if you get nowhere there, remember, the higher you go, the nicer they get. Skip straight up to the top brass.
    • I'm sorry you've been having such a rough time.  I'm thinking you may have accidentally ingested something containing gluten, and that's what caused your reaction.  A lot of people will react quite severely to even a tiny bit of gluten.  That's why there is so much on here about avoiding cross contamination.  Even though you've been diagnosed with NCGS, you still need to live as though you have actual celiac disease, and be very careful not to cheat.  Your body will punish you for it.  :/  In the meanwhile, nurture yourself kindly and gently, just as you would after a severe bout of food poisoning or intestinal infection.  Comfort foods, like broths and soups and smoothies.  You might want to avoid lactose for a few months too.  Sometimes we lose our ability to digest lactose when our intestines are damaged and vulnerable like yours is right now.   And remember healing takes time.  So does learning the gluten free lifestyle.  Expect some setbacks occasionally.  You WILL get better!
