Hi Terrie!

I live outside of Boston and here is the listing of the finer dining places in Quincy Market. I would advise eating at a higher end place because most of the other food places will be hard pressed to serve you gluten-free food. I have eaten at McCormick and Schmick's before and they are a seafood place. They accommodate and I did not get sick. Quincy Market

If you really want a fantastic gluten-free experience, I would HIGHLY recommend "Marco" in the North End. It is very easy to get to from Quincy Market. All you do is cross the Greenway into the North End and they are on Hanover St., which is easy peasy to find...one of the main drags. You pretty much dump onto Hanover after crossing the Greenway. From Quincy Market it will take 10 minutes to walk to Marco. You should call ahead for reservations as they will make fresh gluten-free bread for you and it arrives at the table warm. They have many gluten-free options, including good gluten-free pasta, and will make just about any pasta dish you want that's do-able with gluten-free pasta. They also have half plates and full size, depending on your appetite. Not sure if you are able to go outside of the Market to eat but Marco is definitely worth your while but you do need reservations. Marco Menu Scroll down on the menu and you'll see the remarks about gluten-free options.

Hope this helps and I hope you have a great time! Boston is pretty gluten-free friendly so don't worry too much.

Her's another link that might be useful: Gluten free Registry.

Glad to hear that. You do still have to be careful, as always, but Boston is an easier place to find gluten-free and "most" of the people working in finer dining establishments are savvy to our needs. I am very sensitive and go out to eat in the city about twice a year and haven't had a problem yet. The Registry link is a big help too.

Let me know where you end up eating and how it went! :)

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
