Hi All:

I am going to a conference next month to DC. I will be there for an entire week and staying in a hotel room.
This is my first big foray into relying mostly on restaurants for a week or so, so I am a bit nervous.
I very rarely eat out.

I'll be mostly about Dupont Circle and in the government area for lunches.
Can anyone give me some good tips on where are good beats to get a safe meal in DC?

Thanks, your help is most (and always) appreciated,
~Allison

Long history of IBS, and stomach/intestinal problems. Low on iron for all of my life.
Low on energy, with aches and pains in my joints and in my whole body for as long as I can remember.
Mostly lactose intolerant for all of my life (except for yoghurt)
Diagnosed in 2003 by naturapath as wheat intolerant. Tried it then fell of the wagon. In Feb. 2010 tried going gluten-free.
Went back to the poison in March, 2010.
Tested negative for celiac in April, 2010 (based on negative biopsy and normal tTG test). IgA tested 30-40 percent higher than normal.
Not going to fight the diagnosis because I refuse to go back to the poison. Happily gluten-free for health reasons as of April 2010, and not looking back.

There's Pete's Apizza, Austin Grill, Hello Cupcake, Jaleo and Zaytinya. All either have gluten-free options or understanding staff.

In the DuPont Circle area, the places I often go to include

* Chipotle, on Connecticut, near the north exit of the DuPont circle metro station. The food is cheap; I get the burrito bowl (important to avoid the burritos). I believe the hard tacos are supposed to be ok but I have never personally tried it. To be on the safe side I also avoid the sour cream.

* Other places near DuPont Circle include a number of Thai restaurants. The Front Page is a nice restaurant near the south exit of the DuPont circle metro station - you can always get a good steak there.

* If you have more time to dine, both the Austin Grill and Jaleo's near the Gallery Place/Chinatown metro stop have gluten free menus. If you go inside Jaleo's they also will tell you the locations of other nearby restaurants owned by the same chef/owner and these other restaurants are also very celiac friendly.

* There is a cupcake place in DuPont circle where you can pre order gluten free cupcakes. I can't remember the name of the place though..

* Cafe Atlantico (around the block from Jaleo's) also has a very nice menu and is very friendly towards celiacs. It's a little more pricey.

i would also suggest seeing if the hotel can put a fridge and even a microwave in your room. many times they will- then you can keep some food to eat as back up.

Birch and Barley (birchandbarley.com) on 14th Street used to have a gluten-free menu, but I don't see it on their menu anymore. You might try giving them a call.

Cafe Atlantico (www.cafeatlantico.com) accommodates gluten-free diners. They have great mojitos and guacamole if you're just looking for something to eat at the bar.

Firefly (www.firefly-dc.com) has a gluten-free menu. They recently hosted the local gluten-free meetup dinner.

Papa Razzi (www.paparazzitrattoria.com) in Georgetown serves gluten-free pasta

Rosa Mexicano (www.rosamexicano.com) is another option.

The Source: I don't believe they have a gluten-free menu, but they were able to accommodate me with no problem. http://www.wolfgangp...ine-dining/3941

Mixt Greens (www.mixtgreens.com) if you're looking for a place to go for lunch

Zengo (www.richardsandoval.com/zengodc/) has a gluten-free menu as well


Let me know if you need more recommendations!

All of these recommendations are great. I'd also add Dino (http://www.dino-dc.c...08/10/menu.html), which is very gluten-aware and will serve any of their pasta dishes over polenta instead. Its just two metro stops up from Dupont. Also, there's a Whole Foods at 14th and P (Dupont Circle is 19th and P) where you could stock up on snacks or breakfast food. I love their gluten-free cranberry scones there.
