City Of Pittsburgh

Recommended Posts

Would anyone in the Pittsburgh area like to get together? I'm a female in my 20's. I work in healthcare and go to the University of Pittsburgh. I have some great friends who are Celiac supportive, but I think it would be nice to have dinner with a fellow gluten-free friend. Or get coffee and sneak in with something yummy from Gluuteny.

I had an extra part-time job in a pharmacy earlier this year, and 4 ( ! ) of my co-workers were gluten-free. . . so I know you're out there!

I don't live in Pittsburgh but, I travel to the area every 2-weeks to check on the progress of the Benedum Hall project on the Univ. of Pitt campus. I am wondering what celiac friendly restaurants (if any) might be in the area? A little local insight would be most welcome. As it stands now I have been traveling with a home-packed lunch and I eat while on-the-road. If a place exists close by Benedum I would welcome the chance to sit down and have lunch with you to share some celiac war-stories.

Hi Bob

I was hoping someone could give you some input on where to eat. I'm 35 miles north of Pittsburgh & I'm not in that area very often so I can't help. I know of places in Cranberry Twp .

There is a Whole Foods & a Trader Joe's not to far away. Wf is on Centre & TJ'S is on Penn.

Sorry !

Oh, have you eaten at Tommy's in Strongsville? I heard it was good. I go over to Cleveland about twice a year. Anything else good besides PF Chang's ? thanks

I work downtown, at Heinz Hall (1 block from the Benedum)! There is a Qdoba around the corner where the manager is VERY celiac-savvy--his wife has celiac! Practically everything there is safe, as long as you avoid the tortillas and a couple of other things, and he knows to change gloves, use a clean work surface, etc.

Their "Naked Burritos" are AMAZING.

Qdoba is a lifesaver. I think I end up there at least once a week when I'm out of the house for 13 hours and am too disorganized to bring any food with me. If only I could remember to keep gluten-free soy sauce with me, I could mix it up with some sushi!

You could keep a bottle of gluten-free soy sauce at work, if you work downtown--soy sauce doesn't need refrigeration. :)

There is also a company (Kari-out) who makes little individual packets of gluten-free soy sauce, marketed as "Panda brand." Their website is www.kariout.com, and you can also order them from www.allergygrocer.com

Andy's Sushi, located just inside Wholey's fish market in the Strip, is the BEST sushi in the city. It's about a 15-minute walk from Qdoba.
