I don't get up to San Francisco much, but in the South Bay Area we have PF Changs and Outback. I'm so new all all this that I haven't really ventured out to eat much yet...but I understand PF Changs and Outback each have gluten free items/menus. There is a health food store in Cupertino called Cupertino Nutrition which stock a lot of gluten-free stuff like Kinnickinnick breads, donuts, etc. We also have Whole Foods stores which carry some good gluten-free items.

Any recommendations for places to eat in the San Francisco or San Jose areas?

I had some great gluten free pasta at Maggiano's (Santana Row) in San Jose. The chef was very nice, made a ton of it for me so I could take some home.

I live in the area but get stuck going to the same old places, Outback and PF Changs. However, most higher end restaurants in the area are good about making accomodations.

If you're up for a nice trip down the coast, I had a fabulous (albeit expensive) dinner at the Pacific's Edge Restaurant in Carmel. The chef told me to order whatever I wanted and he would modify it.

There's a nice lunch/coffee place in downtown Mountain View that has gluten free sandwiches. It's called Global Blends.

Hi Rachel,

I just found out that the Bay Area Celiac support group is having a lunch at Maggiano's in March.

See the following web site: http://www.bayareaceliacs.org/calendar.htm.

Wish I could go, but I am already tied up on that day. :(

For those who may stumble on this post for a trip to downtown San Jose, I had excellent experiences at PF Chang's, E&O Trading Company as well as The Grill on the Alley. I was out in San Jose on business and it turns out there's a Safeway grocery store with some fresh and basic gluten-free items for breakfast (rice chex, soy milk, produce). Lunch was had at PF Chang's from a gluten-free menu. For dinner E&O Trading explained the option for each course, and The Grill on the Alley had a Gluten Free menu. Both very accommodating, especially if you call ahead.
