Sweetfudge, do you have a follow-up report?

Because in about two weeks, *I'm* headed out on a Carnival Cruise... :)

In Topic: Stowe Vermont And Boston

01 February 2010 - 12:41 PM

Hi there,

My family will be traveling to Stowe Vermont in April. I would like to know of places to eat and/or buy groceries while there. My daughter has celiac and I like to know ahead of time where to eat so that she does not feel as if she is under a spot light.


We will be flying into Boston and spenfing a day there also. So any Boston info will be appreciated as well.


Tica,

I ate at a NECI restaurant in Burlington several years ago, and they did just fine. I'd hope for the same at Chef's Table.

There are also many upscale restaurants in the Stowe area that would probably be accommodating. Have you seen the Stowe tourist website? http://www.gostowe.com/
Before you go, you could email restaurants of interest and ask if they can help you. I don't have any firsthand experiences to share, but googling turns up some promising options. There are also some places between Boston and Stowe if you're driving up. (And if you are, you can stop at a Whole Foods Market on the way for tasty if expensive gluten-free bread & goodies).

I live in the Greater Boston Area, and I think I'm spoiled. Several chains here have Gluten Free menus: Legal's, Capital Grille, P.F.Chang's... You'll still want to ask questions, of course. Generally, I feel pretty safe anywhere where the kitchen prepares food to order and the waitstaff seems to be paying attention. FYI, There's a Legal's in Logan Airport.

Your daughter may still feel like she's under a spotlight a little, but I think many restaurants here are familiar with celiac disease. So you're less likely to get a waiter looking at you as if he were a deer in headlights and/or you're speaking in martian.

Have a great time, and best of luck.
