I was there in November (it's where I grew up) and ate at Med Mex (a few locations around town), as well as Mitchell's in the Galleria (Mt. Lebanon area - South Hills). They have a gluten-free menu. Also, there's a PF Changs in Homestead (maybe 20-30 min or so from downtown?) There are also a few Bravo locations, that has gluten free pasta (best to call ahead, though).

Thanks again for the suggestions. We ate at Franco Bravo on Penn Avenue. The waiter was very responsive. I had a blue fin tune coated in sasame seeds with a honey habenero glaze on top of stir fried veggies. It was one of the best meals I have ever eaten - gluten-free or filled with gluten. I couldn't find out anything about gluten-free pasta though. My colleagues liked it so much we actually went back another ight during our stay. That time I had scallops and shrimp and a spumoni/fresh berries dessert. James is the waiter who took care of us. He was fantastic.

This sounds yummy! Glad to hear it worked out well.

This is just so amazing that I had to write. I live in Pittsburgh and my husband felt like going out to a Mexican Restaurant tonight. We have a new Mad Mex and an On The Border. I looked on both of their web sites and it didn't say much about ingredients. I then clicked on the forum and your message about Pittsburgh was the first one (or most recent one). Then you mentioned Mad Mex! out of how many possible restaurants and answered my question before I even had a chance to ask it! Thanks a lot. We are headed to Mad Mex. I am fairly new to this so haven't eaten out much since being diagnosed. Thanks again.

Susie - let me know how your dinner went. It's funny, I never thought I'd miss Pittsburgh, but going back there for my 20 year high school reunion made me realize there are parts of the city I miss. I've only been gone 11 years. I do miss a good Primanti's sandwich...I wanted my partner to eat one for me when we were there, but he said if I can't have one, he wouldn't. If I knew I wouldn't get sick, I'd eat that followed by an Eat 'n Park Smiley Cookie.

:-)
