Gluten Free Restaurants Lake George, Ny Area

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My family and I will be traveling to Lake George, New York in the summer for vacation. I was wondering if anyone knew of any restaurants in Lake George or the surrounding areas that have a gluten free menu or will accomodate gluten free.

Thanks,

Tina in New Jersey

There are several active groups in the area...possibly Albany. My advice would be to contact them for the latest info. There is a page here that lists groups where you can get contact info.

I'm going there too in late June. Here are a few tips for you:

S.J. Garcia's on Canada Street has several gluten free items. Sadly, I'm not a big fan of Mexican food. Heres's the link:

http://www.sjgarcias.com/

Several of the national chains with gluten free menus are also around:

Pizzeria Uno in Queensbury (only a 10 minute drive away):

Outback in Queensbury

There's also a Carrabba's about 45 miles away in Latham, but that's a little far to go for dinner unless it's on the way for you.

In my pre-gluten-free days, I had a good experience at the Log Jam Restaurant, which is a familiy steakhouse. They claim to accomodate special dietary needs, so it might be worth a try:

I also had some great breakfasts at The Silo and Sutton Marketplace. Not sure how Celiac friendly they are, but they do have quaint country stores that are worth checking out regardless:

Have a great trip!

Hi Ted,

Thanks for the info.

I knew about Garcia's but we fell the same way not crazy about mexican

My husband and I went to the LogJam last year it was great.

There's also an Outback in Lake George by the Walmart. This is the second year we are going there just wanted to check and see if there is anything different that we didn't know about.

Thanks again,

Tina in NJ

Out of curiousity, what did you get at the Log Jam that was gluten free? I imagine they could probably make a steak gluten-free without too much trouble.

Ted

there are a few places in Saratoga Springs (about 25-30 min/20 miles from Lake George) if you want to venture outside of the immediate LG area. One place is Nunzio's - it's really just a deli but they make an awesome gluten-free pizza. (it's a million times better than the gluten-free pizza from Unos.) you can eat in or get it to go but you have to give them an hours notice so they can make the pizza for you. (it's fresh each time, not frozen or anything).

a local newspaper blogger has written about them: http://blog.timesunion.com/glutenfree/category/nunzios/

also in Saratoga, the Circus Cafe offers a gluten-free menu: www.circuscafe.com

as does Wheatfields (ironic name, right?) www.wheatfields.com

have fun in Lake George!

KD's Fish Fry is the best! Google KD's. They have great food at low prices and Dawn's dedication is remarkable. They have alot more than seafood and they have packaged treats and meals to go. Very tasty stuff.

That's great. Thanks! I figured steak was safe, but I'll still make sure to ask them not to put anything on it.

I went to Lake George in late June for 2 nights and figured I'd post a follow-up regarding my meals. The rest of my family eats gluten, so I'm only mentioning what I had for the most part:

We ate dinner at the Log Jam (http://www.logjamrestaurant.com/) on the first night and I had the "Natural" rib-eye steak with a big baked potato. The steak only has olive oil, salt and pepper on it and was quite delicious. Dinner comes with a trip to the salad bar, but of course you need to be careful when choosing items. Overall it was very good and I had no reaction at all.

Breakfast the next day was at The Silo (http://www.thesiloqueensbury.com/). I got scrambled eggs, corned beef hash and homefries. The waitress was familiar with food allergies and she seemed to know what was safe. I didn't have any reaction, other than the usual slightly queasy feeling from greasy but delicious fried breakfast food.

Dinner was at Outback and I had the Chicken on the Barbie with another baked potato (plus a salad with the Tomato dressing). It's always good, but I never feel that well after eating it. I don't think I was glutened, but the sauce and salad dressing probably don't agree with me all that well in general.

Breakfast the next day was at the hotel (Country Inn and Suites) and I had fruit and hard boiled eggs at their buffet. The breakfast buffet was pretty impressive for a complimentary breakfast.

We then stopped at KD's Fish Fry for lunch on the way back. First of all, if you're in a rush, do not drive through Saratoga as it's very slow going. The better way to go is to get off the Northway at exit 13N by the Saratoga Performing Arts Center. It's a bit out of the way, but only about 10 minutes from the highway if you don't get lost (thankfully I had a GPS). We were there right around lunchtime on a Saturday and it was completely empty, so I'm hoping they get most of their business during the week or maybe at dinner time.

The food was amazing -- I had some delicious fried fish, french fries and incredibly good onion rings. My wife tried them and would never have known that they were gluten free. It was one of those times when the food tasted so good that I was afraid I was eating regular versions by mistake, but I felt fine, which is pretty impressive considering all of the fried food I was eating. My wife had regular fried shrimp and my kids had the macaroni and cheese triangles which looked really yummy. For dessert, I bought some gluten-free chocolate chocolate chip cookies to go, which were delicious. Really the only negative thing I have to say is that the ambiance could use a bit of upgrading to bring it up to the level of the food. I'd love to see KD work on frozen versions of the fried food to sell in supermarkets, but I don't know how likely that really is.

Ted (in NY)

Hi Ted, so happy to hear you found us and that you enjoyed it so much. Just wanted to let you know I am working on shipping although it will be direct to the customer rather than in a grocery store. My kitchen is too small to produce for a chain store. I am looking into supplying food co-ops in the tri state area up here also. Keep a eye on the website daffifoods.com Dawn aka Kitchen Witch of KD's Fish Fry.

    Celiac.com 06/23/2018 - If you’re looking for a great gluten-free Mexican-style favorite that is sure to be a big hit at dinner or at your next potluck, try these green chili enchiladas with roasted cauliflower. The recipe calls for chicken, but they are just as delicious when made vegetarian using just the roasted cauliflower. Either way, these enchiladas will disappear fast. Roasted cauliflower gives these green chili chicken enchiladas a deep, smokey flavor that diners are sure to love.
    Ingredients:
    2 cans gluten-free green chili enchilada sauce (I use Hatch brand) 1 small head cauliflower, roasted and chopped 6 ounces chicken meat, browned ½ cup cotija cheese, crumbled ½ cup queso fresco, diced 1 medium onion, diced ⅓ cup green onions, minced ¼ cup radishes, sliced 1 tablespoon cooking oil 1 cup chopped cabbage, for serving ½ cup sliced cherry or grape tomatoes, for serving ¼ cup cilantro, chopped 1 dozen fresh corn tortillas  ⅔ cup oil, for softening tortillas 1 large avocado, cut into small chunks Note: For a tasty vegetarian version, just omit the chicken, double the roasted cauliflower, and prepare according to directions.
    Directions:
    Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a cast iron or ovenproof pan until hot.
    Add chicken and brown lightly on both sides. 
    Remove chicken to paper towels to cool.
     
    Cut cauliflower into small pieces and place in the oiled pan.
    Roast in oven at 350F until browned on both sides.
    Remove from the oven when tender. 
    Allow roasted cauliflower to cool.
    Chop cauliflower, or break into small pieces and set aside.
    Chop cooled chicken and set aside.
    Heat 1 inch of cooking oil in a small frying pan.
    When oil is hot, use a spatula to submerge a tortilla in the oil and leave only long enough to soften, about 10 seconds or so. 
    Remove soft tortilla to a paper towel and repeat with remaining tortillas.
    Pour enough enchilada sauce to coat the bottom of a large casserole pan.
    Dunk a tortilla into the sauce and cover both sides. Add more sauce as needed.
    Fill each tortilla with bits of chicken, cauliflower, onion, and queso fresco, and roll into shape.
    When pan is full of rolled enchiladas, top with remaining sauce.
    Cook at 350F until sauce bubbles.
    Remove and top with fresh cotija cheese and scallions.
    Serve with rice, beans, and cabbage, and garnish with avocado, cilantro, and sliced grape tomatoes.

    Celiac.com 06/22/2018 - The rise of food allergies means that many people are avoiding gluten in recent times. In fact, the number of Americans who have stopped eating gluten has tripled in eight years between 2009 and 2017.
    Whatever your rationale for avoiding gluten, whether its celiac disease, a sensitivity to the protein, or any other reason, it can be really hard to find suitable places to eat out. When you’re on holiday in a new and unknown environment, this can be near impossible. As awareness of celiac disease grows around the world, however, more and more cities are opening their doors to gluten-free lifestyles, none more so than the 10 locations on the list below.
    Perhaps unsurprisingly, the U.S is a hotbed of gluten-free options, with four cities making the top 10, as well as the Hawaiian island of Maui. Chicago, in particular, is a real haven of gluten-free fare, with 240 coeliac-safe eateries throughout this huge city. The super hip city of Portland also ranks highly on this list, with the capital of counterculture rich in gluten-free cuisine, with San Francisco and Denver also included. Outside of the states, several prominent European capitals also rank very highly on the list, including Prague, the picturesque and historic capital of the Czech Republic, which boasts the best-reviewed restaurants on this list.
    The Irish capital of Dublin, meanwhile, has the most gluten-free establishments, with a huge 330 to choose from, while Amsterdam and Barcelona also feature prominently thanks to their variety of top-notch gluten-free fodder.
    Finally, a special mention must go to Auckland, the sole representative of Australasia in this list, with the largest city in New Zealand rounding out the top 10 thanks to its 180 coeliacsafe eateries.
    The full top ten gluten-free cities are shown in the graphic below:

    Celiac.com 06/21/2018 - Would you buy a house advertised as ‘gluten-free’? Yes, there really is such a house for sale. 
    It seems a Phoenix realtor Mike D’Elena is hoping that his trendy claim will catch the eye of a buyer hungry to avoid gluten, or, at least one with a sense of humor. D’Elena said he crafted the ads as a way to “be funny and to draw attention.” The idea, D’Elena said, is to “make it memorable.” 
    Though D’Elena’s marketing seeks to capitalizes on the gluten-free trend, he knows Celiac disease is a serious health issue for some people. “[W]e’re not here to offend anybody….this is just something we're just trying to do to draw attention and do what's best for our clients," he said. 
    Still, the signs seem to be working. D'elena had fielded six offers within a few days of listing the west Phoenix home.
    "Buying can sometimes be the most stressful thing you do in your entire life so why not have some fun with it," he said. 
    What do you think? Clever? Funny?

    Celiac.com 06/20/2018 - Currently, the only way to manage celiac disease is to eliminate gluten from the diet. That could be set to change as clinical trials begin in Australia for a new vaccine that aims to switch off the immune response to gluten. 
    The trials are set to begin at Australia’s University of the Sunshine Coast Clinical Trials Centre. The vaccine is designed to allow people with celiac disease to consume gluten with no adverse effects. A successful vaccine could be the beginning of the end for the gluten-free diet as the only currently viable treatment for celiac disease. That could be a massive breakthrough for people with celiac disease.
    USC’s Clinical Trials Centre Director Lucas Litewka said trial participants would receive an injection of the vaccine twice a week for seven weeks. The trials will be conducted alongside gastroenterologist Dr. James Daveson, who called the vaccine “a very exciting potential new therapy that has been undergoing clinical trials for several years now.”
    Dr. Daveson said the investigational vaccine might potentially restore gluten tolerance to people with celiac disease.The trial is open to adults between the ages of 18 and 70 who have clinically diagnosed celiac disease, and have followed a strict gluten-free diet for at least 12 months. Anyone interested in participating can go to www.joinourtrials.com.

    • While not the best (less specific), AGA antibodies still have some value.  For the most part, most labs are now just running the newer DGP tests in the U.S. Some posters reside in countries that may not have the most current tests.  I assume the DGP was run, but I could be wrong.  Maybe the OP can clarify. Here is a study to back my claim: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5553580/
    • IgA 678 Tissue Transglutaminase IgA 2 units Tissue Transglutaminase IgG 3 units Giliadin IgG 24 units Giliadin IgA 62 Units but Endomysial Ab negative?
    • It looks like you were tested with the old anti-gliadin antibodies, which unfortunately are not good tests for Celiac Disease.  These old tests show that at some point gliadin has gotten into your system and an antibody has formed against it.  It may be a sign that you had "leaky gut".  These kinds of antibodies can come and go and overall are not very helpful in establishing a diagnosis. But there are some other blood tests that still might be useful:  the tissue transglutaminase (tTG-IgA) and the newer gliadin test:  deamidated gliadin peptide antibodies (DGP IgA and DGP IgG).       Some doctors will proceed with a biopsy if you have symptoms and negative celiac blood tests, because even in Celiac Disease blood tests are negative about 10% of the time.  There are some screening checklists here:  http://www.glutenfreeindy.com/screening-checklists.html If you have all the right tests and they are negative, you could still have non-celiac gluten sensitivity or other types of food sensitivity.  At that point you could do an elimination diet to determine what is causing symptoms.
    • Wow!  I wish you the best on your upcoming Ironman.  I have done some sprints and relays, but never an Ironman.  Usually, I do Century Rides.  Like you, I am on a lower carb, high fat gluten-free diet.   Hey, I am looking at two Nunn containers right now in y kitchen.  One, citrus fruit does have corn, dextrose.  The other, Pomergranate Blueberry does not.  It simply has sugar (non-GMO sourced).  
    • Welcome!  At 235, your Immunoglobulin A is normal.  In the case of celiac disease, this test validates the other IgA celiac tests (it is a control test).  The positive gliadin IgA is elevated.  This means you should get referred to a Gastroenterologist for an endoscopy to obtain small intestinal biopsies.  You do not need all the celiac blood tests to be positive.  In fact, I just had only the elevated gliadin IGA and my biopsies revealed some moderate to severe patches of damaged villi.   Keep eating gluten until you see the Gastroenterologist.  In the meantime, keep researching celiac disease and ask questions!
