I am going to be in Washington DC next weekend (16th-20th) and would love it if someone could give me a little direction :)

Is anyone from there, or know of any celiac organizations in DC?

Thank you so much :) Any info is good info ;) We'll be staying right in DC, did you say there's a Whole Foods *in* DC?

I have lots of food allergies - but gluten-free menu restaurants are the best about it (in my experience) because they actually pay attention to details. So I really appreciate knowing what gluten-free menu places they might have there.

Thanks again :)

This info is from a friend in DC

First-Here is a link that has some places from the Celiac group in the area. You'll have to look to see which ones are actually in DC as opposed to NoVa or MD. http://www.dcceliacs.com/dcceliacs/WACSSG_...restaurants.pdf

And, to supplement it, here is what she added based on looking at the list:

"I'm looking at the list and I've been to a few so here are my two cents if she wants:

Legal Seafoods - obviously you and i know it's AMAZING there - if she's got the money for it!

The Baja Fresh is pretty good - there are a few in town - kinda cali-mex fast food - not greasy - pretty good

Outback and PF Changs is always good, but I don't know if they are in the city...

Ruth's Chris Steakhouse - good but pricey

Chipotle - good for lunch, good price - big burrittos!

Red Sage - nice restaurant downtown near my office - sorta cali-mex food

Don Pablo's - I know there's one in the Potomac Yards strip mall, but you have to drive there - okay food - kinda has a TGIF feel but mexican

Chicken Out - There's one in the Ballston Mall - pretty good

Clyde's - nice restaurant - I know there's one in Georgetown and a new one in Chinatown - medium priced, nice atmosphere, lots of businesspeople go there

McCormick & Schmick's - the list says it's only in Reston but there's one downtown - again another business-type lunch place but good food and okay priced

I think that's it - I'm sure she'll find lots of options in the city and there are Whole Foods all over the place.
