There are 5 comments on Gluten-Free Dining Options

  1. You should clarify that not all of these options are safe for people who have Celiac Disease. There is a difference between eating gluten free as a diet option, being gluten sensitive, and having an autoimmune reaction to gluten content even less than 20 ppm. For instance Otto is not safe for Celiac’s. They will tell you that if you ask, but only if you ask about cross-contamination. Blaze has issues with cross-contamination as well.

    1. Thank you for noting this! It’s frustrating when a place is labeled “gluten free” just because the ingredients don’t have gluten in them. If there’s contaminants everywhere it doesn’t count.

  2. One really great option for people with Celiac is Legal Sea Foods. They have a separate prep area and separate fryer, so you can be quite confident in them. They understand gluten issues well. We have had great experiences there, with no illness or bad reaction whatsoever.
