Can anyone provide me with some restaurants in the Atlanta area that have gluten free options? The area I am looking for is around the Marriott Marquis hotel.

Any ideas? Thank you..

The Marriott Marquis is downtown. There are several restaurants there including Morton's Steakhouse (be sure to instruct that they not put the au jui on the steak as that contains gluten) Dailey's (be very explicit in your instructions and speak with the chef/manager, not just the waiter). If you take a subway/cab to Buckhead, there are lots of great places to eat. Fogo de Chao (Brazilian steakhouse) - lots of great gluten-free food, beware the mashed potatoes have flour in them, but the meats are fine, the salad bar is exceptional and mostly fine -- the wait staff is very knowledgeable and will be able to help you, Meritage, excellent food, knowledgeable staff, Blue Pointe (excellent food, they should accommodate you), Mambo (Cuban restaurant in Virginia Highlands) very good food, most naturally gluten-free, small kitchen with accommodating chef..

I could go on. Is there something in particular you like? Will you have a car?

Kim.

If you can get a group of (fun) people together, the Imperial Fez (Morroccan) is a lot of fun and very gluten-free friendly.

Twist and Prime (in Lenox and Phipps Plaza) and Goldfish (Perimeter) are all owned by the same company and I've had very good meals at all three, with attentive and knowledgeable wait staff. Never a problem.

Phuket Tai (Buford Highway and N. Druid Hills) very good Tai food.

Downtown, City Grill is pretty expensive and it's been a while since I've been, but I recall it being good, Emerald City, so if you have an expense account, you may want to try it out.

Good luck and happy eating. Kim.

Hi Michelle,

I've had no problems. I explained what was not okay (wheat, etc..) and said I had a food allergy and couldn't have soy sauce. I ate pad tai for sure. We had several items, I can't remember everything, but I didn't have any problems. and the food was really good (and conveniently located for me). Any curry/coconut milk based food will be fine. A lot of times, they have specials that if you ask about them, they're fine. I eat at Tai restaurants when I travel a lot and never have problems. (I should say, I am very sensitive and get sick from the slightest amount of gluten so I am neurotically careful). Kim.

Great news about the resturants in Atlanta, especially around the Marriott, as my husband is a Celiac. We will be there for a convention in September. Any suggestions on inexpensive eating places in the general area? Also, any suggestions on what to pack for food that will last a few days incase we don't have time to get out to a real resturant? We don't much care for McDonalds or Burger king because my husband can't handle greasy, oily foods. Thanks for your help.

Wife of a Celiac, Jean

Jean, which Marriott are you staying at -- if you let me know, I can recommend places near you (I assume you'll want walking distance? or will you have a car?). Kim, Atlanta

Hi Kim,

We'll be staying at Atlanta Marriott Marquis. Would prefer walking distance. That way we don't have to pay so much in parking.

Thanks, Jean

    • I think the gripe with this sort of article is that it's not telling the right story. When you write anything, you have a choice about whose story you tell and the consequences of it.  While such articles are factual in the sense that objectively, a GFD is worse than a similar regular one, the focus of these articles undermines the struggles of those who must be gluten-free while also not really giving any information that is likely to result in changed behaviour. All this sort of article does is justify the anti-gluten-free circlejerk. I think many of the journalists here think they're on the side of people with celiac disease because they're underlining that the fad diet is dumb/pointless/harmful/whatever. While this may be true, the message the reader remembers is this: the GFD is frivolous. It doesn't matter if there's a line in the article that says something about how the GFD is a medical necessity for those with celiac disease. People don't remember the asterisk in the article. All they remember is that the GFD is for idiots.  What would be valuable and useful is discussing celiac disease - symptoms, longterm consequences etc. and how strict those with celiac disease must be with the GFD in the context of this research. This will do a better job of convincing people that the fad diet is dumb, but do so in a responsible way that doesn't undermine the real problems faced by those with celiac disease or other medical conditions. Plus, the increased awareness might make someone realize that they should get tested.
    • I had to run go google zonulin. Never heard of that! Makes perfect sense though.. I assume every single person on earth with AI disease has leaky gut! Ya know, I drank several glasses to a bottle of merlot every night after work to "unwind" for many years before I figured out it aggravating the leaky gut! I'm SO glad I quit before it did more damage ... Seriously, metformin is awesome. I love it. Great for metabolic resistance and free at a lot of places with an RX!
    • I am on Armour too.  No metformin for me yet.  I am trying to manage on a low carb high fat diet for many reasons like having a damaged gut and being allergic to so many meds (yah know....swelling, hives, etc.).  Leaky gut.  Nope.  Better.  Zonulin seems to be increased in celiacs.  I am going to blame my gut on that!  Seriously, there seems to be a link.  
    • Dang, Ennis.  You rock!  Ironic and I must be near brain dead.  Did I mention that school is out today!!!!!!  I feel so sleep deprived!  S U M M E R! 
    • Wow you have ALOT going on! Sorry to hear about your ongoing issues. Are you super duper strict with avoiding gluten or do you think you are still getting cross contamination? I will check out that portion of the forum- THANKS a bunch for that. It is all a bit overwhelming. I saw some people post that they saw "dramatic improvement!" within 2 weeks and I'm going rreeeaaalllly? *insert sarcasm.. haha. I know I wont get that lucky. I take metformin and armour and victoza. Type 2 diabetes runs in my family too. My glucose levels were never really high and I never got the official type 2 diagnosis but ive dropped all excess weight on these meds. I hope to wean soon. Did you fix the leaky gut? That is a daunting task isn't it!
