Hey Joshua,

I am not from Lexington but close. I live in Somerset about an hour south of Lexington. I am on my 2nd week of eating gluten free and finding it difficult to find many items in Somerset. I'm planning a trip to Lexington to visit the Whole Foods Market in Lexington Green.

Do you eat at restaruants much? Somerset offers very little, but I have heard of places in Lexington that offer a gluten free menu. What is your experience?

jennifer,

i know the somerset area and can see how it would be hard to find "safe" food. here in lex the best places to go for a night out are p.f. changs at the fayette mall, carabas grill which is next door and the bonefish grill in the hamburg area. these all offer alternative menus/meals. if you like sushi try tomo in chevy chase (no soy sauce). just remember that when you eat at a restaurant there are many hands in the same dish and still a chance of a "safe" eat being contaminated. swim at your own risk. however, i still love a good asian dish. as far as the groceries go i would plan your trip for an early saturday morning and go downtown to the farmers market then off to whole foods or the good foods co-op on southland drive. lately i have been going to the krogers on leestown road, they have a great little natural foods section and its between home and work for me. well, i hope this helped. have fun on the trip.

The Lexington support group has a person with the title of "Restaurant Liason". He can be contacted through their website. I was planning a trip to Lexington a while back and e-mailed him. He was very nice and got back to me with detailed suggestions for restaurants.

I live in Lexington :) I've only been gluten free since May, though, and don't have an official celiac diagnosis, but I am gluten intolerant. I don't have much experience eating out, though, and the places you mentioned in this topic so far are the only places I know of that have gluten free menus around here.

katsby,

i really don't eat out much either anymore. sometimes the risk is too much but at least some places are trying. how do you know you are intolerant? i had to go through 7 different medical practitioners until i found the answer to my troubles. have you been doing better since may or have you had some trouble?
