I found a local restaurant in Hamilton, Ontario that SAID they were celiac friendly.

I emailed to confirm and got the following from the chef:

Hello Ada,

We offer a celiac friendly menu and would be happy to look after your dietary needs. Feel free to email or call 905-526-6642 for a reservation. Thank you.

Chef David Lewis

I am beyond excited.

If only there were places like this. The fact that the chef was kind enough to respond and with such news is exciting. I found a place in Kentucky that offers a similar prospect. I asked about the possibility of a condition friendly dish and they brought the chef out who offered to make any dish I desired, on the menu or not, and using whichever ingredients I wanted. They were more than happy to oblige by the clean utensils policy as well and offered many assurances. Now to test them and see if its too good to be true or not.

Foodislife, a very good restaurant should be able to do this. At high-end places flour is rarely used anyway - sauces are usually lighter or reductions/glazes. I almost never use flour to make my pan sauces - not necessary. I've been told this by several places and have successfully trusted them IF I am satisfied with their responses to my grilling on CC, etc. The biggest issue at these places is CC and you are always taking a risk, of course. If it is a serious restaurant (i.e. not a chain) with a good reputation on the line with the chef (trained at culinary school) who clearly knows what he is talking about I trust it.
