Gluten Free Restaurants In Va (reston Town Center?)

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I know I'm getting really specific here, but does anyone know of any gluten free restaurants in at Reston Town Center (in Reston VA)? I'm traveling to a hotel there for work, and I will not have a car to drive around in. I'll have to walk to this area to eat every night. Thanks for any help!

There is a Wegmans' grocery store in Fairfax also, but you need a car or cab to go there.

If you can catch a ride to a metro stop, you go to a lot of areas in and around DC for not too much money. They have a day pass for $11.80 good for all day.

Metro's site has a trip planner that will tell you the time for a trip and the cost, using metro only or metro and bus.

This thread has some info on DC gluten-free restaurants. Uno's Pizza and Z-Pizza both have gluten-free pizza. I'd check ahead of time with the store to make sure before going, as they may not all have it yet.

If you are there over the weekend, you might enjoy checking out the Artomatic show, opening this Friday evening. It's a free show, and right across the street from the Navy Yard Metro stop. 1000 artists and 9 floors of art, lots of free events and performances too.

Big Bowl (thai and Chinese) I eat there semi-regularly, just ask for their gluten free menu. There's also an Unos (w/ a gluten-free menu), and I've been safe at Rio Grande (next to Big Bowl). There's another Thai place called basura but I can't guarantee they're gluten-free (language barrier). There's also a cupcake place called Edible Incredible's that is introducing gluten-free cupcakes in either June or July.

Great info and thank you all for posting the question and responses.

I have been recently diagnosed with Celiacs and hoped to connect with others in the community to learn from their experiences. Can anyone point me in the direction of a local group or some other way to learn more?

I just looked into the Reston Town Center because I'm looking for places to take my parents for lunch.

What I found was that almost every restaurant there claims to be able to cater to a gluten-free diet (according to their websites).

Heres the safe-list:

Uno's

McCormick & Schmick's

Jackson Mighty Fine Food - Lucky

Vaipano

American Tap Room

Morton's

Big Bowl

Uncle Julio's

Paolo's

M&S Grill and Steakhouse

Clyde's

Mon Ami Gabi

If you are like me, and super sensitive, then I would be careful about eating at Chipotle. They say they can do gluten free, but they also say that they work a lot with flour tortillas and cannot guarantee cross-contamination won't happen. They mention they are willing to change their gloves for you, but considering how prevalent the use of flour tortillas is there, I would not order from that restaurant.

Ate at Vapiano's last week. It's a pasta place. Definitely not gluten free unless it's the salads you're looking for... then, any place could be considered gluten free...
