Atlantic City

Was in Atlantic City all last week for a conference. Worked very long days so it was yogurt, fruit and snacks for breakfast and lunch. Dinners were out with colleagues. The difference since last year was amazing. Some highlights:

Gallagher Steak House: Waiter knew every ingredient of every menu item. Got filet, mash potatoes and sauteed string beans.

PF Changs: Yeah yeah I know but this waiter seem really on top of things.

Cafe 2825: I was really worried about this place after looking at their website. Your typical small Italian place where on the outside (not in a casino), everything looked full of Gluten. Probably belongs in Little Italy. But holy crap was I wrong. Spoke to the owner after we sat down. He said "don't worry about a thing, we have two kinds of gluten-free pasta in the back and we make everything from scratch, I can make almost ANY menu item gluten-free." This place was probably the best meal I've had in 2 years and you'd never know it. I told him he MUST update his website! Pricey but soooo worth it (company was paying anyway)

Buddakan: Also worried as this was a last minute decision by others and I had no time to research. What do you know? They have a large gluten-free menu! I was a little buzzed at the time so not as worried about CC as I should have been but I came out just fine.

Left AC only down $14 too!

Was in AC again last week for the same conference and would like to update this post:

Went back to Cafe 2825 and had the same type of awesome experience as last time.

FYI all restaurants in the Borgata now have official gluten-free menus. Some may be more limited than others but at least they are there.

Had a great meal at Dock's Oyster House (since 1897) many natural gluten-free items like steak and seafood.

China Sea of Absecon (right outside of AC). Family run Chinese with large gluten-free menu. As good as lilli and loo in NYC but 1/2 the price.

I've gone from worrying about a week in AC two years ago to really enjoying it this year. As gluten-free becomes more main stream, easy to get by in this tourist heavy location.

    • I'm from the UK so I can't help you on the recommendation, but  instead of canned chili have you tried making your own? It's super easy to do, far nicer and cheaper than any  pre-made  variety and you can make a big batch and freeze small portions so its always available if you need a quick filling meal? There's no reason a chili should include gluten btw, but if they're telling you that there's a high probability of cc its best not to eat there in any case!   Edit: checked their site:  https://www.skylinechili.com/special-dietary-options.php#glutenfree They're basically telling you there could be cc  
    • I live in Cincinnati. One thing we are known for is chili and a horrible football team. I was wondering if anyone had one of those gluten detectors and how they work because I would love to test them. They claim to be gluten-free and even state that in their restaurants there is a high probability for CC. I even wrote the company several times but no reply. I just had some earlier and am up with a reaction to something. I'm leaning towards the chili. Is there any good canned chili out there that will not make me sick?

    • I really miss Pizza. I've tried many different brands but never that good. I stick with the Freshetta gluten-free pizza. It has the CSA symbol on it meaning that it has gone through some of the strictest tests there are and can test down to 5ppm I think. It's about as close to the real deal that I've come across.
    • Found it:   "The Canadian Celiac Association (CCA) recommends that people with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity DO NOT consume the gluten-free labeled Cheerios products at this time because of concerns about the potential levels of gluten in boxes of these cereals...Based on the information provided to date, our scientific advisors are not convinced that the testing procedures described by General Mills are sufficient to detect these contamination “hot spots” in the oats and oat flour or in the boxes of cereal that may contain those contaminated oats."
