Places Recommended In Ct

So I ran into someone today who has a family member with celiac disease and we started talking about places to eat. To make a long story short, she highly recommended a couple of places and I thought I'd share.

 

Burton's Grill in South Windsor  http://site.burtonsgrill.com/stores/south-windsor-ct/#menus

I am told that they have a dedicated grill/kitchen area.

 

Dee's One Smart Cookie in Glastonbury  http://www.deesonesmartcookie.com/

According to their site... "Dee's One Smart Cookie is the only non-GMO bakery in New England that is devoted 100% to the production of gluten free, dairy free, tree nut free, peanut free and soy free products!

They also have a Thanksgiving menu if you are local! http://www.deesonesmartcookie.com/pdf/dees.thanksgivingmenu.1013.pdf

 

If anyone has any place to recommend in CT, I'd love to here from you.

Indeed! There's the Engine 6 Pizza company in Norwich, never gotten sick there.

They do calzones, pizza, breadsticks, nothing fried.

 

There's Elizabeth's in Rocky Hill, they serve fresh tapioca cheese rolls and can make

almost anything on the menu gluten free. It's an Italian/Portuguese place, large portions

with rich heavy sauces, gluten free pasta.

 

Shoreline Diner in Guilford, SWEET POTATO FRIES! Plus really good sandwiches

and gluten free breakfast foods, the regular french fries are somewhat lackluster in

my opinion.

 

Cafe on Broadway in North Haven, breakfast/lunch place. Over half the kitchen is

dedicated gluten free, pancakes, sandwiches, fries, baked goods occasionally.

 

The Home Restaurant in Branford. Best french fries ever, served with special house

made dipping sauces. Pasta, fancy meat preparations, decent burgers, onion rings-

woot! Very tasty food, though a bit pricey.

 

I second the recommendation for Burton's. They are truly fantastic. Dee's is a nice

bakery too, although oddly I very much disliked their actual sandwich bread when I

tried it, which to be fair was a few years ago now.

I used to eat at Engine 6 when I worked in Norwich. That was before gluten-free. As a matter of fact, when I was a kid my Grandma lived about two blocks from there. (Now, which emoticon do I use to indicate nostalgia?)

I am newly diagnosed this week 11/27 so I have to start building my library. On the day of diagnosis I was starving and about to do the Thanksgiving food shopping. I was by the West Farms Mall where there is an Olive Garden and a Red Robin. Olive Garden's menu says it has pasta and red marinara sauce. I am avoiding this now due to acid issues, so I went to Red Robin. They have a gluten-free menu which they update monthly at each location. I opted for sweet potato fries and a burger no bun. They do have a gluten-free bun but I have never liked buns !  They told me that the fryer is dedicated for just the gluten free items.I did eat quite I bit. I am still not feeling well since my endoscopy 11/13 and have issues with feeling ill if I eat a large enough volume of food, so I cant comment on any cross contamination issues, but the waitress was very nice and went over all the choices.

    • Respected consumer advocacy group Public Citizen is calling for the FDA to ban the sale Benicar, due to the potential for side effects to which Public Citizen refers as "life-threatening." According to Public Citizen, olmesartans risks outweigh any benefits. Should Benicar be banned? View the full article
    • The thing is.  They didn't have to say anything about gluten free food.  They didn't have to put that mean-spirited dig in there at all.  They could have just showed the awesome thing for serving food.  People with food sensitivities would have just substituted gluten-free or peanut free food in their minds.  Just like anyone would have said - I hate cucumbers - so my party tray won't have that on it.
    • Thank you so much! So is the positive IgG pretty indicative of celiac (could it be anything else)? I havent read any of those posts on diet, so I’ll have to start. Honestly, I’m happy to start gluten free. At the start of this, I was so bummed out that I’d have to give up foods. But confirming that it is gluten making me sick, I don’t want to eat it anymore. Kind of nice I got a “farewell to gluten” tour but so happy it’s over. Unfortunately, there is only one office here in Asheville, NC and it’s renowned for being awful (just look at the reviews!!) I’m on Nashville a lot for work, so maybe I can look for a good doctor there instead. 
    • So PC is not celiac pc? I'm sure fictitious  "Tina" in the ad will discard her "immature anti celiac ad friends" like used napkins and find new friends that are less grossed out by her autoimmune disease.  Or perhaps fictitious "Tina " will patiently educate the baffon friends in the ad. Tina's choice. Another company made a bad choice to join the gluten dude list of celiac bashing in the public media  Hey PC want to attempt to get out of dog house ? contact me for where to send my check For your next marketing idea/ script for your commercial  Your next commercial show two tables one designated gluten-free and one non gluten-free show 2 different color coded themes one gluten-free and non gluten-free example red for gluten-free and black non gluten-free ( whatever game day team colors- catch my drift) showing gluten-free cake served on red plate and non gluten-free cake on other table on black plate. Yo support celiac awareness and safety. this marketing tip per AWOL  contact me for my royalty checks  👍  
    • .....damn I thought I had run into stupid doctors on my own, yours flip flop more then a ADHD kid and I should know that one. Yep celiac and gluten-free for life....get copies of all your POSITIVE test and compile them in a folder, write the others off as doctor stupid was tripping on acid. Get copies of all your medical records and personally take them to a new doctor....might want to look through them first and make sure the idiot did not put anything in there wrong. Well if you can anyway......
      Congrats on the diagnosis and sorry you found one of the idiots, you get those a lot in life just sucks when it is someone in charge of your well-being and health like that. I take it you have already been through the newbie 101 thread and gone to a whole foods diet to boost up the healing, cleaned out the kitchen and set for the haul.
