New Haven, Ct Area?

Recommended Posts

Any other young adults in the New Haven CT area that would be interested in getting together with another recently diagnosed PhD student for support and doing fun things that are 'celiac friendly'?

Maybe. Would be a roadtrip. E-mail me on the board if you'd like to discuss. I'm probably near your age.

I go to school in Fairfield and I'm living up here for the summer. Know any details yet?

Hi! I'm moving to New Haven to start a Ph.D. next month and I would love to meet up to find some celiac friendly restaurants or cook.

Hello. I have just moved in to New Haven to start a PhD as well. I have found the local restaurants sorely lacking, unfortunately. I would love to get together with other local celiacs (particularly other grad students) to cook and discuss. Let me know when you get into town. I would be happy to help to organize something a little more formal as well, if you're interested.


Dx wheat allergy, possible Celiac disease. 

Dx Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome with wheat as a trigger.

In New Haven, Foster's is pretty accommodating (they will even do gluten-free birthday cake with advance warning), but there are knowledge gaps, last time we were there no one seemed to realize miso often (or perhaps always, depending on your view & the source of info) contains gluten.

Ibiza did a great job with warning when I was part of a group meal there this spring. They seem very aware of food issues, someone else at our table had a shellfish allergy but didn't realize until he sat down that it was an issue with the night's menu, they were able to make him a substitute course on the fly.

Cafe Istanbul- I ate cleanly there at a drop-in meal. The waitperson wasn't familiar with celiac but picked up very quickly & I felt comfortable.

A recent (July 30) post on 'Please Don't Pass the Nuts' blog said Clair's Corner Copia has a gluten-free menu.

Happy eating! I am semi-close by, in Fairfield.


gluten-free (except unintentionally) from 7 Dec 2007

3 gluten-free cousins and counting (1 gold standard, 1 pos blood/no endo, 1 self/dietary diagnosed)

suspect mother was celiac (also, cousin suspects my mother's twin is celiac)

Feb 08 testing 'normal range' for gluten antibodies, IBD and food allergies

Staying off gluten - dietary reaction is compelling for me!

"Hi, I'm the gluten-free diner at your table."

I just moved to New Haven for grad school as well, and was diagnosed about a week before I moved here. Any out there willing to pass along info/meet to chat about living and eating gluten free?

Hi,

I'm originally from New Haven, and I know that there is a new place called Nature's Grocer that has a dedicated gluten-free bakery. Their website is: http://www.naturesgrocervernon.com/

Also, "Edge of the Woods" (if they are still around, on State St. I believe) might have a very good selection of gluten-free products.

There is a Trader Joe's in Orange and a Whole Foods further north, but the WF would be about a 45 min. drive. I think it's in West Hartford.

Blessings,

Rachel
