Gf In Washington Dc

Recommended Posts

I'll be traveling to Washington DC, and was wondering if anybody knew of any restaurants to visit up there? Or if there were any good health food stores in the area?

Thanks,

MLU

hi Murda :-)

If you don't mind driving outside DC, Fairfax (off 66) has 2 restaurants right next to each other...PFChangs and Ruth's Chris Steakhouse. PFC has a gluten-free menu and RCSH, as they are more upscale, are VERY willing to work with you to get a dish for you that is gluten-free.

There are a few Outback Steak Houses sprinkled in the area...they also have a gluten-free menu.

Famous Daves BBq place has some gluten free items. Just ask to speak to the Mgr.

I've found for eating out..I order a meat dish of some kind (steak, chicken, fish) and then just a plain baked spud with butter or some steamed veggies on the side. I'm able to eat most anywhere...I ask for NO seasoning on my meat and so far, I've yet to end up poisoned somewhere.

There is also a new place in the Manassas area (off 66 west)...BoneFish. They are a subsidiary of the same company that owns OutBack and they offer a gluten-free menu as well.

Of course, if you want to drive 90 miles west of DC....you can come to my house and I'll make you a gluten free meal <g> My entire house is 95% gluten-free...my family gets bread and chips/crackers/snacks like that. Other than that...my cupboards are safe :-)

Good luck and feel free to email me (chars at webgyrl dot net) if you would like more specific info on directions or such. i'll be happy to help :-)

I just recently ate at Legal Seafoods which is a few blocks from the Smithsonian in DC up 7th street I believe. Their food is wonderful and they have a gluten-free menu. Once I told the waiter I was allergic to wheat (a lie but that is usually all they understand), he alerted the chef and the manager and gave me a gluten-free menu. I had a delicious crabmeat salad with - get this - gluten-free croutons. Yes, the manager brought me my plate hisself and told me that those were gluten-free croutons. I couldnt have been more impressed and I didnt even get slightly sick!! A big pricey ($15-$20 per plate) but well worth not having pain/suffering/thoughts of getting sick. :D

David Greggory is amazing, so good. You make reservations online, and in special instructions you put G F and they make you something special, something different everytime I have ben there. They check on everything and make everything very good.
