    Do you have questions about celiac disease or the gluten-free diet?

Going Out For My Birthday, First Time Since Dx

Recommended Posts

SO Ive been gluten-free for almost 7 months, feeling sooo much better. I went to a wedding this past weekend and I actually ate, we contacted the hotel manager at the Hilton which worked out great, they knew exactly what to do.

So this is giving me a little bit of courage to go out and venture back into the world of restaurants for my bday. My bf wants to take me out, and he doesnt mind where. Im kinda in between of where i should go. I live near boston, ma so the list is endless.

I have it narrowed down to PF Changs, Flemings, and possibly Capital Grill.

Anyone have a preference? Where have u been successful at?

Thanks =)

We went to Skipjacks in Boston recently and had a wonderful experience. They don't have a gluten free menu but they will accommodate just about anything that you pick from the regular menu. They were able to make meals that were gluten free and dairy free. They even made a special dessert just for my daughter since there wasn't anything on the menu that she could have. I spoke to the manager when we got there (her name was Sue) and our waiter was wonderful. The food was fantastic - I would definitely recommend it!

I have eaten at all three places since diagnosis. Three times at Capital Grille, once at Flemings, and several times at PF Changs. I ate problem free at both Capital and Flemings. I have gotten sick at PF's a few times though. It is just always so busy there, that I think it can cause some complications. At PF's a server usually brings out your food and not your actual waitor. AT least that has been the case in my experience. So I am usually weary that the server is bringing me the right meal. That being said, I have also eaten there several times without getting sick. I absolutely love Flemings and Capital Grille..but those are very expensive and not places I would eat frequently. For your b-day though I think that it would be great to splurge....

What type of food are you in the mood for? If a yummy steak, then I would go with Flemings or Capital Grille....just my opinion! :)

I can always eat steak, and my bf loves it too. I was leaning more towards Capital Grill, the money is no big deal, cause hes paying anyways, and they way i look at it, i havent gone out to eat in 7 months, i deserve an expensive place...lol

Not sure if you were aware that Flemings is owned by the same company as PF Changs and if you go on their website they have a gluten-free section.

Just an FYI..they have yummy steak too!

I didn't know they own PF Changs, but Fleming's does own Outback.

Where near Boston? I grew up in Newton, Mass and two weeks ago I went home to visit my mom. We were going to out to Legal's but my mom felt a bit too tired to go that far so she got on the phone with a restaurant down the street and asked them about Celiac/Gluten-free menu options. As soon as she said "Celiac" they cut her off and said, "oh yeah, we get a lot of celiacs and we can accommodate you, just tell the waitress what you need." The place is called Ariadne's -- there's one in Cambridge too -- and everything was delicious and the staff was totally cool about everything. I highly recommend....

It's at 344 Walnut St., on the corner of Washington Park. Newtonville -- across the street from Kentucky Fried Chicken. Here's more info.

Small world, indeed. But then, I swear that I run into someone from Newton almost once a week.
