Jade Teahouse & Patisserie
Portland, Oregon (OR) View On Map
The only way I can best sum up our dinner there is we seriously debated about driving back to Portland from the coast (about 2 hours) two days later just to be able to eat at Jade again. Yes, it was that good. April, who manages and runs the restaurants is gluten free herself, so she knows what is safe, what isn't safe and had TONS of recommendations. And made us very happy with her delicious food. Now, not all of the menu is gluten free, but there are plenty of options. The Artist had these super soft wide rice noodles - quite possibly the best wide rice noodles I've ever eaten. I used to love the Chow Fun noodles at P.F. Chang's pre-Celiac days. These noodles kick butt compared to P.F. Changs. We also tried fried coconut shrimp skewers. I've not had fried coconut shrimp in 5+ years. They were a hit! I ordered the sesame beef for my main dish and scarfed every last bite. I can't even remember what everyone had as everything tastes so good. It's definitely a place that is worth a visit to if you're in the Portland area. And they had a ton of gluten free macaroons for dessert. Lots of different flavors of french macaroons that were delicious.

We were quite sad that we booked an earlier flight on our outbound trip home, as we wanted to go to Jade to get takeout for the plane ride home, but we couldn't fit in our schedule. Yes, it was that good. Thanks, Alice for the delicious food - we will be back!

Bar Italia
Manhattan, New York City (NYC) View On Map
Recently I got to try the Italian restaurant Bar Italia, which is located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. They offer a gluten free menu which can be found at the back of their regular menu. I enjoyed the gluten free Spaghetti al Tartufo with Black Truffle and Parmigiano for my entree. It was delicious but very rich and extremely filling! For dessert, I had the gluten free Tiramisu which in addition to being gluten free was vegan and a raw food dessert! One of their chefs is a raw food gourmet chef! It was also delicious and it was hard to believe that it was also vegan! The gluten free menu offered a wide selection of gluten free pastas and pizzas!

Jungle George Grill
Goleta, California (CA) View On Map
Three years ago, my husband and I used to go to Dish Cafe on Calle Real a bunch. Since then, it has become Jungle George Grill. The exciting thing? They still have the sandwiches which are made with plantains and are GF! Woohoo! I got the vegetable plantain sandwich without the tabbouleh. It comes with corn chips and salsa. I also got a side salad without croutons. There must have been a little communication error because it came with croutons, but that was easily remedied by the staff.

Pi Pizzeria
St Louis, Missouri (MO) View On Map
We ate at Pi, a local pizza restaurant. Several people had told me they have gluten-free crust and dairy-free cheese so I felt comfortable eating there. What I didn't know was that President Obama's favorite pizza is Pi and he was in St. Louis that evening. One of our first questions to the gal who seated us was whether the president had been in that day. She said no, but there had been carry-out. It must be good, right? Yes! We ate at the Central West End location, a beautiful space with an eclectic mix of chandeliers and furnishings.

I ordered hummus and asked if I could get sliced vegetables instead of the flatbread. The fella taking our order said they could slice a gluten-free pizza crust for me, so I could actually have hummus with bread instead of veggies. Such a treat. I ordered a Berkley pizza with Daiya cheese. When my pizza arrived, it looked incredible, topped with mushrooms, onions, kalamata olives, red bell peppers, garlic and zucchini. And the taste? Well, every bit as good. Without a doubt, this is one of the best gluten-free pizzas I've had. Our server didn't divulge where their gluten-free crust comes from, but it is not made in-house.

Schlafly Tap Room
St Louis, Missouri (MO) View On Map
I knew going in this may be a restaurant where I would choose to not eat, but instead enjoy the company of dear friends and eat something from my travel stash back at the hotel. Eating at the tap room of a gluten-full brewery didn't sound particularly gluten-free friendly. I quickly perused the menu and asked the server on his first visit to our table if he could assist me with ordering gluten-free. He darted across the small restaurant to grab a gluten-free menu. Yes! Their gluten-free menu was extensive and created in the simplest way I have seen: they used a Sharpie to mark through the items that are not gluten-free and had also notated items that could be deleted from an item to make it gluten-free, such as croutons or a sauce. I had the Vegetable Vindaloo, a spicy curry dish of veggies and pepitas over basmati rice.

The Matador
West Seattle, Washington (WA) View On Map
A couple of times we traveled to West Seattle to visit friends. The first time over there we dined at a restaurant named The Matador. It had this gothic, Spanish vibe to it. There were also big flat screen televisions above the bar with sports on. There was something odd about the whole thing, but the atmosphere wasn't the most shocking part. When I told the waitress I read online that they have a gluten free menu she quickly ran off and grabbed me a real menu. It was leather bound like everyone else's menu. It felt nice to have a restaurant offer me a gluten free menu that they hadn't just printed out. I asked about the the chips, and I was told that they do fry them in the same oil. They even mentioned it on their menu about the other fried items, so I just wanted to make sure. The fact that they mention that on their menu was amazing! I've never seen that listed on a gluten free menu before. I chose to have these delicious tacos with an guajillo-ancho chile sauce over carnitas and chorizo. The chorizo was spicy and amazing, as was the sauce. I wish I had been able to go there again. There was one in Redmond, but there just wasn't enough time with all we had going on.

Five Guys Burgers and Fries
, Chain View On Map
I actually ate at one of these in Florida. They originate from the southeast, but they've made their way up to the northwest. They only fry french fries in their fryers, and they know to change gloves and have one person handle the order when you say you're gluten free. Just order your burger without a bun, and get ready for an awesome burger experience. If you're ever in a location with a Five Guys, I really suggest you try it.

Island Gluten Free Bakery
Sarasota, Florida (FL) View On Map
Island Gluten Free Bakery is a delightful little gluten-free bakery located just off of Siesta Key in Sarasota. This was a very pleasant experience and we look forward to eating there again and again. We tasted their carrot cake, cinnamon rolls, and pumpkin muffins. Yummy!

We decided to split an egg salad sandwich, only we wanted to try it on a hoagie roll. They were all too happy to accommodate us. We had a seat and they brought it out when it was ready. Their bread is phenomenal! I was a bit jealous. Unlike some store bought breads that I've tried, these were soft and held together great.

The owners were very personable and friendly. I recommend that when in Sarasota, you give them a try.

Madison, Wisconsin (WI) View On Map
Fresco is located on the roof of the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art on State Street and is part of the Food Fight Group. Before yesterday I'd only been to Fresco for drinks and I would recommend it for the view alone. It's a great view of downtown Madison and could be a pretty romantic location to watch the sun set. I'm not sure why I hadn't tried their food in the past, but was happy to find out that many of the items on their regular menu were also on their gluten free menu. Their website suggests that their menu changes frequently, so I'm not sure if this is always the case.

Given that I'd originally planned on tapas for dinner, I ended up ordering two appetizers as my meal and chose the sweet corn risotto cakes with roasted poblano cream, corn and tomato salad and the shrimp diablo with a jicama orange salad. They were both delicious with the shrimp diablo being just the right amount of spicy and the risotto cakes being crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside. I must admit that this was an instance that I was so hungry that I forgot to ask about cross contamination issues with the risotto cakes, but I didn't have any negative effects afterward and for that I was very grateful. I would certainly encourage people to ask about these before ordering them but I'd guess that the menu will change shortly as their current menu seemed summer themed.

I can now say that in addition to having a great view, I can also recommend Fresco for their food. It would be a great location for happy hour if they had a happy hour menu. They are somewhat on the pricier side, but certainly in line with other similar restaurants downtown and the view is included. Enjoy!
