New to the forum, joined primarily for recipes. I've been gluten-free since November 2009. Anyone know any good gluten free resturaunts in SF proper? I've been to Pica Pica and Hot Spud and love them both, but haven't been that many other places.

I'm moving to San Francisco soon. :) It's a great city to be gluten-free! I like The Plant Cafe Organic and Amici's pizza.

Hi, Ben!

I belong to a number of meetup.com gluten-free groups in the S.F. Bay Area. They oftentimes like to meet at gluten-free spots (like Pica Pica and Mariposa Bakery in Oakland) just to chat, socialize, and share information. Everyone I've met through meetup.com has been very nice, and I learn something new every time we meet.

You might want to check them out...

BTW, I live in Martinez.

Welcome to SF Ben! Zadin in the Castro, Dosa on Fillmore, Ike's Place in the Mission and Pica Pica on Valencia are my favourite gluten free eateries here in the city. They are all celiac friendly and know what they are doing in terms of preventing cross contamination, etc. :)
