Gluten Free In Dc?
0

7 posts in this topic

Hi All:

I am going to a conference next month to DC. I will be there for an entire week and staying in a hotel room.

This is my first big foray into relying mostly on restaurants for a week or so, so I am a bit nervous.

I very rarely eat out.

I'll be mostly about Dupont Circle and in the government area for lunches.

Can anyone give me some good tips on where are good beats to get a safe meal in DC?

Thanks, your help is most (and always) appreciated,

~Allison

There's Pete's Apizza, Austin Grill, Hello Cupcake, Jaleo and Zaytinya. All either have gluten-free options or understanding staff.

In the DuPont Circle area, the places I often go to include

* Chipotle, on Connecticut, near the north exit of the DuPont circle metro station. The food is cheap; I get the burrito bowl (important to avoid the burritos). I believe the hard tacos are supposed to be ok but I have never personally tried it. To be on the safe side I also avoid the sour cream.

* Other places near DuPont Circle include a number of Thai restaurants. The Front Page is a nice restaurant near the south exit of the DuPont circle metro station - you can always get a good steak there.

* If you have more time to dine, both the Austin Grill and Jaleo's near the Gallery Place/Chinatown metro stop have gluten free menus. If you go inside Jaleo's they also will tell you the locations of other nearby restaurants owned by the same chef/owner and these other restaurants are also very celiac friendly.

* There is a cupcake place in DuPont circle where you can pre order gluten free cupcakes. I can't remember the name of the place though..

* Cafe Atlantico (around the block from Jaleo's) also has a very nice menu and is very friendly towards celiacs. It's a little more pricey.

i would also suggest seeing if the hotel can put a fridge and even a microwave in your room. many times they will- then you can keep some food to eat as back up.

Birch and Barley (birchandbarley.com) on 14th Street used to have a gluten-free menu, but I don't see it on their menu anymore. You might try giving them a call.

Cafe Atlantico (www.cafeatlantico.com) accommodates gluten-free diners. They have great mojitos and guacamole if you're just looking for something to eat at the bar.

Firefly (www.firefly-dc.com) has a gluten-free menu. They recently hosted the local gluten-free meetup dinner.

Papa Razzi (www.paparazzitrattoria.com) in Georgetown serves gluten-free pasta

Rosa Mexicano (www.rosamexicano.com) is another option.

The Source: I don't believe they have a gluten-free menu, but they were able to accommodate me with no problem. http://www.wolfgangpuck.com/restaurants/fine-dining/3941

Mixt Greens (www.mixtgreens.com) if you're looking for a place to go for lunch

Zengo (www.richardsandoval.com/zengodc/) has a gluten-free menu as well

Let me know if you need more recommendations!

All of these recommendations are great. I'd also add Dino (http://www.dino-dc.com/2008/10/menu.html), which is very gluten-aware and will serve any of their pasta dishes over polenta instead. Its just two metro stops up from Dupont. Also, there's a Whole Foods at 14th and P (Dupont Circle is 19th and P) where you could stock up on snacks or breakfast food. I love their gluten-free cranberry scones there.

    • My numbers are right at the lower border of in range. I don't know if that's significant. Hemoglobin 12.7.  When I had surgery a year ago it was 10.3 afterwards.  I have heard of testing ferritin. Does low ferritin but normal CBC indicate anemia? I'm also wondering how quickly a CBC rebounds versus low ferritin if you have compromised iron absorption. 
    • Hello everyone I just received a call from my doctor's office that the Celiac lab work they drew returned 3 positive results.  I asked her to check me for Celiac as it was a suspicion of mine. I don't see the GI until next week. Can someone tell me what these lab numbers mean. I have tried to figure it out, but I'm not getting it. Can these numbers signal 'weak' chance or is it you have it or you don't? I am 37 years old. I have vitiligo (since 12 years old), chronic autoimmune related hives, thyroid removed from Graves disease at 20 years old, chronic anemia (last ferritin was 2). I've had meningitis and shingles. I had my gallbladder removed 1.5 years ago and the chronic pain in my URQ has never left. CT scan last August shows only cysts on ovaries, which I also have recurrent problems with. Stomach pains now for months and months, cramping, burning. Joint pain, headaches, anxiety, etc. Any advice please!? I am not so concerned about having to cut gluten as I am hoping that this may finally make me feel human again.
    • Only you can make a decision on whether to do a challenge or not.  My hubby went Gluten Free 12 years before I was officially diagnosed.  He refuses to do a challenge, because we need to pay our bills and we know that gluten makes him sick.  Why would anyone remain gluten free for more than 16 years if they did not need to?   He does tell me that I have received way more support from medical, family and friends.  It also has helped other members in my family (easy to ask for a celiac screening for my kid).   Good luck!  Do what is best for you.  
    • A CBC would check for size of blood cells, number of blood cells and hemoglobin levels, etc.  If you are within range, you probably would not be considered anemic.  A ferritin test (iron stores) can be checked too.  If very low, it starts to create symptoms.   https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anemia
