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.
