HI

Here's a job for those of you who live in or have visited Charleston.

Im planning a trip to Charleston, SC for mom in celebration of her 50th b-day, but i want to make sure she has a nice place to eat where she knows that her food will be safe. Unique restaurants would be great, but at this point, Im giving up on finding those. I really want this to be special b/c she has wanted to do this for a long time

dancer,

The only restaurants that I have listed is Carrabba's Italian Grille and Outback in Charleston. I have found that restaurants in cities are more familiar with gluten free than ever before. Perhaps you can choose one and contract the manager.

Maybe some locals can help.

Do you have or are you familiar with the "Triumph" dining cards. If not go to www.triumphdining.com and see about getting them. They are used to educate the staff to prepare food in resturants that do not have a gluten-free menu. The Charleston area has a lot of wonderful resturants which specialize in "low country" cuisine. I am sure they would be able to make substitutions in order to prepare a meal she could enjoy. Hopefully "southern hospitality" extends to those of us in the Celiac community. Good luck.

Tom

I am in Charleston as we speak visiting my son(who is a chef at a nice restaurant on Kiawah island) . We ate luch downtown yesterday at a Thai restaurant called Basil. I had a rice noodle dish with chicken. I have also eaten at a place called Poogans Porch(on Queen Street). I think if you eat at one of the midrange spots(not burger and ribs type) they will be helpful and accomadating. Dont just tell them you have Celiacs. They react better and pay closer attention if you say that you are allergic to gluten.We ate lunch yesterday at a liitle cafe near DSs house and I ate the special whic was chicken breast with Boars head ham and BBQsauce(homemade) and cheese. It was supposed to be on a cresoint but I had it on the plate. Just make sure you aask questions. Have fun: Charleston is fun. Parking is very expensive. The first time we came we did a carraige ride(you see lots but dont have to walk). Also your car parking is part of the cost and you can keep your car in the lot. It is extremely hot down here101 yesterday) so bring a cooler so you can keep some bottled water.
