Gluten Free In Maine And Nh

3 posts in this topic

My wife, who is celiac, and I recently vacationed in Maine, and travelled thru NH. Other than the typical favorable experiences at Outback, we had 3 good experiences at local eateries...

Annello's Pastries, Wells, ME: We got there 15 minutes before they closed. My wife loved the Pumpkin Puffs and the Cheese Rolls (she said they were the softest gluten-free rolls she's ever had). We will be ordering from them.

Galyn's Restaurant, Bar Harbor: We emailed owner Gail ahead of time, and she sent us a list of all menu items with gluten. When we got there, Gail talked to us, and then gave instructions to our server and the kitchen. Wonderful meals included Whole lobster, Chef Salad, and the Tarragon Chicken. The gluten-free desserts were amzing, especially the mousse and the Irish Flourless cake!

Rafferty's Pub, North Conway, NH: Very extensive gluten-free menu had my wife's eyes bulging. The Cheese/Bacon Fries were delicious. Chicken Parm was best she ever had (pasta was a little too al dente). Flourless chocolate cake was awesome.

We would recommend all three.

I live on the Seacoast of NH and have posted several posts on restaurants in this area in the last 8 months or so since I've been diagnosed, it's great to see the options expanding around here!!

I got to go to Rafferty's this Summer and I got the appetizer sampler so I could have all the things I haven't been able to eat in ages like Potato Skins and fries etc. and then I had to get a burger and bun and fries lol...it was really good and they were really nice etc. The bun crumbled apart pretty much in my hands but I think that's just becuase it was frozen, oh well.

I haven't been to Annello's yet but I have ate some things from there that a co-worker brings to work and I liked it. She had some garlic/butter like breadsticks and they were really good. I'm planning to drive up there.

Just an FYI, if you ever make it to the Concord, NH Outback they actually have gluten free bread and burger buns to boot! I didn't believe it until i hopped on over there this Summer and the waitress told me as I asked for the gluten-free menu, I was like so the myth is true lol. It was great.

Anyways, ever have any questions about places in this area let me know, I've been on the hunt, have found alot of good places for a nice night out, or just read some of my posts and there's some other restaurants in there. Oh yeah one more thing, there's a place in Ogunquit ME that has a pretty extensive gluten-free menu called Julies Ristorante or something (it's mostly take out but it's right on Route 1) and I ate there this summer but got sick that night really bad, so I dunno, I'd like to go back but I'm pretty scared to now. Might have to ask next time how they prepare the food etc.

Anyways, thanks for posting!!

    • Jmg, I am glad you were able to come to the realisation that the culprit was in fact gluten. For me its not so simple. IBS runs in the family, as do several food intolerances. Its just in the last while that I can finally reach the conclusion that for me its gluten. The fact that it is a delayed effect-several hours after, made it harder.  Friday I had some KFC, felt great. Saturday evening felt sleepy, Sunday felt awful and my belly was huge.  I think I have gone from mildly sensitive to full blown celiac over the course of five years-if that possible. Thanks for all your help.
    • I thought I'd take a moment to provide an update, given how much lurking I've done on these forums the last year. It took a long time, but I've since had another gastroenterologist visit, many months of eating tons of bread, and an endoscopy where they took several biopsies. I have to say, the endoscopy was a super quick and efficient experience. During the procedure they let me know that it looked somewhat suspicious, causing them to take many biopsies, and then did comprehensive blood work. About a month later, I received a call telling me that the TTG came back positive a second time, and that the biopsies were a mix of negative (normal) results and some that were positive (showing blunting of the villi). As a result, I've been given a celiac diagnosis. It's been about a month now that I've been eating gluten free. Not sure if I'm really feeling all that different yet. It's a bit twisted to say, but in some way I was hoping for this diagnosis — thinking how nice it would be to have an explanation, a plan of action, and feeling better. It's certainly no small change to be totally gluten free, but I'm hopeful.
    • Is it possible to go from a mild form of gluten sensitivity, to a more severe form, and finally full blown celiac?  If so, that is one of the confusing aspects of this. I have been gluten free for several weeks, and almost feeling 'normal'. I had to go and ruin it with two pieces of KFC! That stuff is  my cocaine! Sure enough,  next two days I was sleepy, depressed, and my belly stuck way out.  Before I could get away with a little cheating. Not anymore I guess!
    • I've had peeling lips for over 3 years now. What helps my lips the most is taking HCL with every meal. Another thing...I've been grain free for the most part for helping to keep my weight down. But I had noticed a few times after eating bread products, that my lips would improve significantly. So I'm eating einkorn wheat and taking HCL and have had the most improvement since it started which was around menopause. The burning at the beginning was really bad until I got off of coffee and the burning stopped. I read that coffee was a hormone disruptor. I don't know what the conclusion will be but thought I would give you my 2 cents thus far.
    • My feet used to swell up too. Impossible to sleep. Started using compression stockings and that helped. Off that job for half year, meanwhile getting 100% gluten free. Back on my feet again all day and 2 weeks later notice my feet are not swelling or heating up like before. So yes, there is a connection.
