We are going on a quickie family vacation in a couple of weeks. Staying about a mile from the white house and we won't have a car. Any restaurant suggestions? Looking mostly for bar & grill, burgers, pizza type of food. All suggestions welcome - thanks!

Here are a few in the metro area:

Most large cities, I have found are pretty well versed in serving gluten free. Have fun...it's a great city.

And the subway/metro can get you to anywhere you may want to go. Museum of Natural History and the National Zoo are a must. And take the metro to Dullas Airport to see the newly displayed Endeavor.

Thanks so much for your response.

Just by chance, my daughter and I recently went on a high school choir trip to NYC, and we were waiting for the Ellis island ferry when we got to see the Endeavor fly right over us! Got some pretty cool pictures!

Check out the DC Metro Celiac Organization's website for a list of restaurants. Their list includes all of the DC area (VA/DC/MD) so you'll have to scroll through for DC specific restaurants.

My son will be excited to hear about all his choices! My DD is in DC for three weeks dancing and will also be happy to hear the suggestions. I ate at Ella's Pizza last summer and it was excellent!

Does anyone know if Safeway carries a variety of gluten-free products? The dancers grocery shop there.

Safeway does have gluten-free choices. But you may have to ask the store manager for a pointer. The stores seem to have different ideas of where to put gluten-free items depending on the manager in charge. If you are going to be near a certain Safeway I'd suggest calling the store and ask them about their gluten-free sections. Some of the Giants have good gluten-free sections. There are also Whole Foods and Yes Organic Market and Harris Teeter and Bloom. Wegmans and MOM ( My Organic Market) as well.

Thanks so much for the suggestions. There's a Trader Joe's right by the hotel she is staying at and there is a small Whole Foods 1/4 mile away. Her biggest needs are Udi's bread and Van's waffles/french toast sticks. She eats lots of rice, potatoes, fruits and vegetables. We have also found we like the Lunderberg products. I will give the Safeway a call. She'll be in NC before then and I need to call the Harris Teeter near her also.

MOM ( My Organic Market)

OMG! Love love love MOM's. I cannot wait to move back to Alexandria at the end of the summer where I will have ready access to the wonderful world of shopping at MOM's. I'll stop squeeing now... :)
