Hi Laura - don't think I have had an opportunity to say "yeah State!" What a game, huh?

Anyway, I have not traveled anywhere (except State College) since being dxd. But, my sister and I have been talking aobut going to Williamsburg this summer, so I am very interested to hear how your trip goes. Hope you have fun!

yay state :)

by the way, where do you eat in State College? Besides the Outback. I'd be interested to know for my next visit!

Williamsburg was great----ate at two places.

1st was Marino's on Richmond Road. Italian place. Had salad bar that came with dinner and brought my own dressing. Very small chance of cross contamination as 'gluten' items were at the far end. Had broiled flounder, scallops, shrimp in wine/butter sauce with old bay. They use a different seasoning usually but I asked if they had old bay and he said they'd use it just to be on the safe side. Had steamed veggies along with it. GREAT! (about $17). My husband had an assortment of pastas....looked delicious. It was very quiet in there and the waiter was very nice and helpful.

2nd was at the Williamsburg Winery. We went there for a reserve wine tasting. YUMMY. I had way to much wine, haha. It was great. Then we went over to the little restaurant on the grounds and I had a cheese platter (I had purchased some of the Mary's Gone crackers from the 'Cheese Shop' in downtown/colonial Williamsburg. She said they had just gotten them in because they had many requests for gluten-free crackers) with the crackers. I asked for the bread to be served on a separate plate (for Husband), and for all cheese to be cut with a clean knife, etc etc etc. Waitress was VERY helpful and although wasn't as familiar with gluten, she said they deal with a lot of other allergies and was very accomodating because of it. Had a great trip, overall!

If you want to have dinner in one of the Taverns, they will accomodate you well when you present a gruten free card. They will come back to the table and let you know what is safe.

I am finding that most restaurants in larger cities are getting more familiar with the gluten free diet.

We always have a wonderful time walking the street of colonial village. There are also wonderful outlets to shop.

Have a great weekend.

Williamsburg is home to one of the first restaurants with a dedicated gluten-free menu that my family ever found.

"Food for Thought" on US 60 (www.foodforthoughtrestaurant.com) has a WONDERFUL selection of dedicated items on their gluten-free menu, ranging from appetizers, to ribs, fresh seafood, to wonderful deserts including one of the most luxurious chocolate tortes I have ever eaten! Our favorite is the "Down South" entree, a generous helping of cheese grits, topped with saut
