Hi Everyone,

My mom's 70th birthday is coming up in August. This is going to be a really hard one for her because my dad just passed in February. Orginally we were going to have a big 70th birthday/40th anniversary party for them but we cancelled that. I still want to do something special for her because she could use it. My mom said she wants to go to Freeport for dinner on her birthday, so I want to make that happen for her. Anyone had a successful gluten free dinner there? Any suggestions in general about eating at a seafood place?

Thanks.

Beth

while i haven't been there, i'd bet that the schooner http://theschooner.com/homepage/ on the nautical mile could do a good gluten-free diner.

legal seafood is only a few miles away in roosevelt field

pf chang is up there near there too

but in freeport, i don't know of any specific gluten free places, nor have i had first hand experiences

good luck

Ooohh - the Schooner. My mom loves that place. I just hope they can accomodate me. I think I'll email them and see what they have to say. Thanks for the suggestion.

I don't necessarily know any particular restaurants in Freeport, but I find seafood places are one of the easiest restaurants to successfully have a gluten free meal without to much fuss. I was in Montauk last week and basically at a lot of lobster and baked potatoes :D

It's always really easy to get whatever your fish preference is, and just explain to them that you are allergic to wheat and gluten (restaurants understand the word allergic better), and if they can make yours in a clean pan with clean utensils, just some salt, pepper, garlic, butter, ect. And a baked potato is always safe. I never used to eat a lot of seafood, but since being diagnosed I eat it all the time.
