Was in Atlantic City all last week for a conference. Worked very long days so it was yogurt, fruit and snacks for breakfast and lunch. Dinners were out with colleagues. The difference since last year was amazing. Some highlights:

Gallagher Steak House: Waiter knew every ingredient of every menu item. Got filet, mash potatoes and sauteed string beans.

PF Changs: Yeah yeah I know but this waiter seem really on top of things.

Cafe 2825: I was really worried about this place after looking at their website. Your typical small Italian place where on the outside (not in a casino), everything looked full of Gluten. Probably belongs in Little Italy. But holy crap was I wrong. Spoke to the owner after we sat down. He said "don't worry about a thing, we have two kinds of gluten-free pasta in the back and we make everything from scratch, I can make almost ANY menu item gluten-free." This place was probably the best meal I've had in 2 years and you'd never know it. I told him he MUST update his website! Pricey but soooo worth it (company was paying anyway)

Buddakan: Also worried as this was a last minute decision by others and I had no time to research. What do you know? They have a large gluten-free menu! I was a little buzzed at the time so not as worried about CC as I should have been but I came out just fine.

Left AC only down $14 too!

Was in AC again last week for the same conference and would like to update this post:

Went back to Cafe 2825 and had the same type of awesome experience as last time.

FYI all restaurants in the Borgata now have official gluten-free menus. Some may be more limited than others but at least they are there.

Had a great meal at Dock's Oyster House (since 1897) many natural gluten-free items like steak and seafood.

China Sea of Absecon (right outside of AC). Family run Chinese with large gluten-free menu. As good as lilli and loo in NYC but 1/2 the price.

I've gone from worrying about a week in AC two years ago to really enjoying it this year. As gluten-free becomes more main stream, easy to get by in this tourist heavy location.
