I have not been ALL OVER Chicago at all, but I can highly recommend Webber Grill downtown in the Magnificant Mile!! They do alot of their cooking on large Webber Grills....so its all made-to-order, fresh and grilled. Decent prices (or WAS, about 5 yrs ago) and very nice servers. Best wishes....and when you return let US know what you found!! : )

I went to Chicago last November and I definitely 2nd Weber Grill. It is awesome!!! We were there for 4 days and I think we ate there 3 times we loved it so much. LOL! Everything I had was great, but the cesar salad, onion soup and the mashed sweet potatoes are to die for!

Overall Chicago seems extremely gluten friendly. Hopefully someone can weigh in with more places but I remember walking by tons of places that I recognized as having a gluten free menu.

THANKS!!!!!!!!! Weber Grill it will definitely e.. probably more than once! I am casein intolerant as well - so a nice baked potato should do the trick (although mashed potatoes sound yummy)!!!

I will fill you in if I find anything else..

I did go out for the FIRST time today, since my elimination began. I went to a local mom an pop cafe. They serve salads, pizzas, etc... I ordered lettuce, onions and tomatoes - they had no cukes. I ordered oil and vinegar on he side. THEY CHARGED ME $10 dollars :o for the freaking salad... I almost fell over when I got the bill! Not going back there for salad.. I was 4 minutes from home, next time I will take my self back there! LOL

I found this:

You'll find a nice selection to get you started. Weber Grill is one of them -- it is indeed a wonderful restaurant. I haven't been there gluten-free yet, and I'm happy to see here that they're Celiac friendly.

Northwest suburbs is packed with gluten-free restaurants. Uno's Pizza, Ted Montana's Bar and Grill; Outback;

mostly I eat at home since my own cooking seems to be the best. Many East Indian restaurants like Udupi Palace in Schaumburg. Weber Grill was mentioned and all listed above are right in Schaumburg.

Marecello & Sons is really good, especially the gluten-free pizza!

I'd recommend the following:

Marcello / Father and Sons - excellent pizza, but apparently nothing else on the menu is gluten free. If ordering, confirm what toppings are gluten-free - they claim everything but 2 or 3 things (I can't recall what they are).

Naha - California / modern American cuisine. Call ahead and let them know you're coming. When I did that, they brought in gluten free bread for me!

Carnivale - Latin American fusion. There is not a gluten free menu, but they have knowledgable servers who can advise you what you can and cannot have. Tortilla chips are fried in a dedicated frier.

PF Chang's - Chinese - Dedicated menu

Venus - Greek - Dedicated menu

Wildfire - Steak / American - they have a burger on the menu, and it's pretty good!

Most of my information has come from Yelp - search "gluten free" and there are a lot of reviews with good information.

And places I intend to try but haven't made it yet:

Adobo Grill - Mexican food. They have a dedicated menu; avoid the chips, I hear those are not ok.

Vinci - Italian.

Places I would suggest avoiding -

Ben Pao (I got glutened via their delivery, after ordering from their dedicated gluten-free menu)

Aurelio's Pizza (They carry gluten free pizza, but I thought it was awful)

I am back from Chicago...!! Had a wonderful time! LOVED eating at *Frankie's 5th Floor Pizzeria* - inside the Bloomingdale's shopping mall. They had a gluten free menu - YUM!

We also ate at Wildfire's and loved it! Got sick from various other places... but the terrible sickness held off until I returned home! Such is life - it was all worth the getting away for a few days sans kids ans husband!! :-)

Thanks for the suggestions!

I discovered Rose's Wheat-free bakery in Evanston. It's got great baked goods as well as a small cafe. Also stuff for people with allergies to casein, etc.

Thanks so much for this thread. I just moved to Chicago a month ago for school and I was wondering about places I could go to eat.

    • Your issues is probably with the carbs then. there is a alternative. best pricing is miracle noodle. For Konjac rice substitute. Konjac flour works with some people others it does not. https://miraclenoodle.com/collections/miracle-noodle-rice-products There is a trick to cooking it but they make no carb noodles, and rice. I use the rice to make all kinds of rice like dishes like my mothers mexican fried rice etc. It does have a tad off texture and flavor but comes close. If your looking for no carb breads Julians Bakery makes some pretty decent breads but you HAVE to toast them to use them. I just found them a month ago....First time eating a bread in 2 year, and first time in as long as I can recall eating one that did not make me feel bloated and fat. No carbs, no sugars, no yeast, no dairy, no soy, and very low sodium...... Been eating french toast, vegan cheesy bread, bread with almond butter and sugar free jam I have honestly been in food heaven since I found it. BTW some celiacs can not tolerate any grains very rare but it happens.    OH and on what I have is really bad Ulcerative Colitis, so I have a bunch of other trigger foods that cause inflammation, bleeding, distention, constipation, gas, bloating etc. Carbs/sugars is a huge one for me fructose, glucose, sucrose.
    • They rotate growing rice and oats in the same crop. I unfortunately am intolerant to oats.  I have Dysbiosis according to a stool test, which is why I am quite sensitive to gluten among other foods.  May I ask what AI you have that makes you sensitive to carbs? I have been in and out of the doctor since November 2016 with chronic pain.  Trying to figure out what is going on with my gut, it's terrifying. I tried Dynasty jasmine rice from Thailand the other day which was recommended in 2009 by someone on here and a few hours later had the worst low blood sugar attack I'd ever had in my life. I am severely underweight due to the pain and I think this happened because I ate a bit too much (I LOVE rice) upon my first introduction back into my diet.  Even so I reacted just as I do when I ingest gluten (intense anxiety/hard to breathe/fast heart beat/constipation/intense pain under my ribs) So I don't think Dynasty is a safe brand, not for me at least. I only react this way to gluten. My other food sensitivities, the symptoms pop up around 24 hours later and are completely different. 
    • Thanks so much for the information. I tried Dynasty jasmine rice which was a recommendation from a sensitive individual on here. The post I believe was from 2009 so there's plenty of time for practices to have changed. I only ask this here again for updated information as I tried the Dynasty brand and got sick. I do not have Celiac disease (according to an Endoscopy) however, I have been gluten-free for 2 years and only ate a cookie or a donut maybe a few times a month for a year and a half before I was tested. I actually like going without gluten as I get less low blood sugar attacks and rarely ever get migraines. Not to mention, before I had the Endoscopy I was fasting for 2 days with no food or drink while I received other tests while I was in the hospital. I also got a colonoscopy at the same time so I had to clear my system out completely. My doctor believes I have a non-Celiac gluten sensitivity due to my symptoms after ingesting gluten. I was diagnosed with Dysbiosis so it could be my body lacks the correct bacteria to break down gluten. I have several other food intolerances including dairy and oats which many facilities process along with rice. 
    • Hi   I'm in the UK so brand recommendations probably no help to you, although we have Uncle Ben's over here which is fine to my knowledge. I have to say I approach rice on the assumption that it should be safe unless I hear otherwise, that may not be the best approach if as you say you're particularly sensitive and want to cover all the bases. The exception to this is the precooked rice you can find over here in pouches designed for the microwave. That can be a problem.  If you have a brand you normally use or that's readily available you could try googling it to see if anyone has reported issues and of course contacting them directly to check with them. This forum is also worth searching in that way as over the years there's been many accounts from users of their experiences with different brands and products so you could try searching a brand name with them.
