My son and I went to Boston a few weeks ago to see Dr. Fasano. Aside from Celiac disease he also has life threatening allergies to peanuts, tree nuts, dairy and egg. This was the first time flying for us and the first time being out of town without access to a kitchen for more than a day.
We had an AWESOME time!! I had some help (Thanks again Gemini!!! My Boston personal trip planner )
We stayed at the Wyndham near Mass General. There is a GIANT Whole Food right behind that you can get to through the back door of the hotel!!! Awesome!
I shipped a Pantry box from the A place that is always bleeped out on here for spamming
Eating out: I will say that my kid doesn't eat out often. Our expectations are pretty simple, get my kid food he'll eat that is SAFE and we're both happy! Simple whole foods with minimal processing is a-ok to us!
Ruth's Chris Steak House on School Street- Went for lunch. He had a roasted 1/2 chicken and steamed broccoli. He LOVED the crispy skin!! (like i said, simple is great and no reaction is even BETTER!)
Legal Seafood- Long Wharf- AMAZING! I emailed them several weeks prior. On a Friday night the manager called me and assured me they could 100% accommodate him, he entered the reservation himself and told me that he would make sure he was on duty when we came! Can you say AWESOME! I looked at the gluten-free menu and saw fries- I held my breath as I asked my allergy Mom questions.
DS had grilled shrimp, FRIES, corn on the cob and grapes. He was in absolute HEAVEN! He wolfed it down in no time at all! I asked if he wanted anything else, more shrimp! Now on the second order they brought it with some kind of sauce. I sent it back and the manager assured be it was gluten free. I said what about all the other allergens, they again assured me it was fine...... I wasn't willing to test it so I asked if I could kindly just have grilled shrimp again and they got it for us and again, DS had it eaten in a minute! He asked to go back the next day
The Dean's List at the Wydham in Blossom St.- This was where we stayed. When we were returning from a long day on the way to eat crackers and cereal in the room the chef was talking with someone so I figured what the heck, I'll ask. He assured me he could make DS some chicken and broccoli (see a theme here?? lol It's what he eats at home at least once a week so he was excited to be eating it out! lol). We went upstairs and washed up and then came down for dinner. He again ate everything and loved it!!!
So being a first letting others cook for him several days in a row, they all hit it out of the ballpark! He loved every minute of it and while I worried after each meal as I always do, we didn't have any issues!!! We had an awesome trip and he's still talking about it!!
