Gluten Free Vacation In Sarasota, Fl

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

We flew into Sarasota and stopped at a Friendly's near the airport. They lived up to their name - very Friendly! The waitress asked the cook about the mashed potatoes and he brought out the box so I could read the label. I ended up going with a bunless burger and it was very good, and the sundae that followed was tasty too. We also ate at a Bennigan's but I didn't realize the steak came with fried onions all over the steak.. I sent that back only to have it come back out with fried onions under the mashed potatoes. argh! We ate at Whole Foods too, and they made me a yummy sandwich (no bread), as well as had quina salads and a freezer full of baked goods. We stayed in Venice and went to the Crow's Nest... yummmmmy!!

We went to the Florida Aquarium, a very cool place to visit... and they made me a sandwich on lettuce instead of the bread. Everyone there was helpful, you'll have a good time!

Does anyone have a recommendation for a gluten free dining spot in Sarasota, FL? I'd love to find a couple places, so I can book a hotel by them.

Thanks,

Hi, I live in Sarasota and have just started this process... there is an Outback steakhouse on Rt 41 and a Carrabas on Stickney point Rd into Siesta Key (corner of 41 and Clark rd) BUT... last weekend I went to a very fine restaurant called Zoria's on Main St in downtown Sarasota and they catered to me very wonderfully. The sous chef and owner both came out to meet me and discuss my options. Their menu is online and they have a raw food menu that is perfect for appetizers, but I think they would be happy to give a main course option as well... they serve Haagen-dasz vanilla ice cream as a dessert option and the owner was very excited about a raw food option that involved a ton of chocolate, as well... it was great. I ordered a filet with steamed asparagus and the chef made a red wine sauce especially for me, obviously gluten-free.

Any of these place are within 10 minutes of Siesta Key, if not less.

I wanted to mention that there's a fantastic gluten free bakery on Siesta Key....right behind Capt. Curt's restaurant. It's called Island Ice cream and Gluten free bakery and their desserts and breads are delicious. The key lime pie is the best I've ever tasted! The only ice cream that's gluten free is vanilla, but all their baked goods are gluten free. The owners are so nice and fun to talk to and really understand since one of them is gluten intolerant. As far as restaurants, there are quite a few chains that have gluten free menus. I ate at the Outback and had no problems, the staff was very helpful. Hope you have a great time on your trip!

Hi!

The Selva Grill in Sarasota is a fantastic restaurant (it ranks in the top 100 restaurants in the US.) It serves Latin American food, which includes many dishes that you can safely eat. Ceviche and dishes that have manioc.... Enjoy!

@Alaskaguy With regard to the timing, I think that everyone is a bit different! I used to have a shorter time to onset when I was first diagnosed (within 24h). As time has gone on, and I've glutened myself less and less, I have noticed that the time gets a bit longer.  Recent history seems to matter a bit too - if I've been glutened recently and then get glutened again, the rash will show up faster on the second round. For example, in the last 3 weeks I got slightly glutened by inadvertent
