  1. There's a great health food store (Sorry I can't remember the name but it's in the phone book) almost across the highway near the Hampton Inn at the extension of College Ave. The Tavern Restauarant was able to accommodate me for dinner with a call ahead of time and a talk with the hostess. Also there's a Wegman's outside of town which has a great gluten-free selection. I think you should do a search of this forum which is where I got most of my ideas. Good luck.


  2. HI - we're going to be in Bethany Beach the first week of Sept. I was just about to post the same question. The only thing I know of is that there is a great health food store in Bethany called Wholesome Habits. It's just about across of the Sea Colony. They have a lot of gluten-free foods, and last time we were there they steered us to several places, but can't remember them. Their number is (302-537-0567)

    I know there is Outback and I think also Carrabas in the area. Let's hope we hear from others. Christy


  3. I wanted to let those of you in the Pittsburgh area know that my son will be attending a school conference held at 7 Springs Ski resort, and I was really apprehensive about feeding him there.

    Well, these people could not possibly be nicer. They said we could put a micro in their room if we wanted, or bring a cooler of food which they would be happy to store in their kitchen and then they could plate/heat it, or if I just wanted to give them a list of food, they would get it OR I could just tell them "what they want to eat" and the cooks would make it separately. And yes, this was AFTER I explained the whole drill, and sensitivity, and cross-contam.... The food director said they wanted him to have a wonderful experience and not worry about eating.

    There's a dance that Friday night for the students, and they even wanted to know what he ate for snacks, so there would be something for him then, too...

    :)

  4. HI-Just noticed your message - If you like Thai food there is a Thai restaurant called My Thai in the Rittenhouse Sq section in center city - They are well up on gluten-free food. Dietary Shoppe has closed. There is a good Whole Foods in center City (actually 2, depending on where you are) and also a Trader Joe's. I heartily recommend Mr. Ritts - they are also knowledgeable about what else is available. If I think of anything else I'll post. Good luck and welcome to Phila. Christy

    HI - I finally found some of my notes. The Health Food Store is in Bethany Beach and is called Wholesome Habits. The restaurant there is called Steakhouse 26. In O.C. (or just outside of it) there is Carrabas, Outback and I think Bonefish Grill which all have gluten-free menus. Thrashers french Fries and Kohls' ice cream both on the boardwalk there are gluten-free. Also I find that most of the seafood restaurants e will work with you to give you grilled seafood. We went to Shark's Cove at the north end of O.C. for dinner and they were able to work with me. Telephone each place ahead of time.

    To locate the ICORS listserv do a search on google or yahoo. I hope this all helps. Enjoy your trip.

  7. Hi, I am brand new to the forum. I have been gluten-free for a little over a month. I will be traveling to Ocean City, Maryland this August and was hoping someone would be able to help me with naming some restraunts that would accomadate me. Thank You for any imput.

    HI - I was in O.C. Md last Sept. If you can get to Bethany Beach (about 8 miles north) there is a great health food store just as you come into town (at a shopping center across from the high rises) that has lots of gluten-free products. The owner was there and told me about several restaurants in the area that are well informed. I think one was called the Lighthouse and known for it's seafood and the chef has a relative with celiac disease so is really knowledgable. I'll see if I can find some notes on O.C. from my research last year and Ill post again. ALso O.C. has an Outback. You might also do a search on the ICORS listserv. Good luck, Christy


  8. My sister in law just moved to Siesta Key and we are going to visit her at the end of the month. We are staying at a condo with my in laws - and my mother in law has been great. She said we'd go to the grocery together when we get there - she doesn't want to bring in any gluten to the condo unknowingly (I'm new at this - and so then is she!).

    She told my father in law that if he wants a sandwich he can go make one in his car :) SHe's too funny...

    Anyway, while on vacation - my inlaws LOVE to eat dinner out. They love fresh seafood and looking at the beach while eating it. I'm trying to plan ahead and find some restaraunts we can enjoy - since they're being so accomodating. Does anybody know of any?

    Also, I have 3 small children - any ideas for snacks for them for the long car ride that are gluten free - since I won't be able to scrub my hands like I do at home...?

    Thanks for all of your help!
