Ina, aka the Breakfast Queen, in Chicago, Illinois knows all about being gluten-free accommodating. Ina, a leader in the effort to ban artificial trans fats, opened up Ina's Kitchen in 1991. Ina understands and teaches cross contamination and is a hands on owner. Her menu has GF all over it to signify those options that are gluten free accommodating. Most importantly, she knows and appreciates good food!!!

Who doesn't love potatoes. These were great. Flavored perfectly, not too much, not too little and the potatoes were cooked perfectly. These are not the star of the show... Nope... The star is below...

I was most stoked to see Gluten Free Pita Bread on the menu!!! Best of all, it's heated before it gets to you. And yes, it's to die for!! Yes, this is the STAR!!! HUGE THUMBS UP for Ina's!!! A must try breakfast spot when in Chicago!

Colicchio & Sons
Chelsea Market, New York City (NYC) View On Map
All I can say is wow! They were well-versed in gluten-free and totally got how careful I needed to be. They put me 100% at ease and it was by far one of the best meals I've ever had.

Grilled octopus for an appetizer and a halibut entree that I'm still drooling over. Plus, they brought me out my own gluten-free bread and a gluten-free dessert without even ordering one. A great night all around and a special shout-out to the bartender Bennett for his martinis and to our server Lorraine, who went above and beyond the call of duty for me. It's the first time I ever hugged my server after a meal. Maybe Bennett's martinis had something to do with that.

Friedman's Lunch
Chelsea Market, New York City (NYC) View On Map
I reached out to a friend for any advice and she came back with a suggestion of Friedman's Lunch, located in Chelsea Market. She said the owner's wife had celiac disease so he knows his stuff. The menu was a celiac's dream. Almost every item could be made gluten-free. I went with the pancakes. I wasn't disappointed. At all.

Beau Jo's
Idaho Springs, Colorado (CO) View On Map
One would assume that pizza can only be pizza, and nothing more, but Beau Jo's proves you ENTIRELY wrong. The menu touts many gluten free options, all clearly labeled and listed additionally on their own gluten free menu page. They are also produced in a dedicated section of the kitchen. From this list, we settled on the honey cheese bread, one Beau Jo's Sauce pizza (the Pacific Plantation) and one Roasted Garlic + Olive Oil Sauce Pizza (the Centurion), both vegetarian versions. The honey cheese bread as Mike put it "Blew Our Minds"! It is apparently a staple to Colorado's local foods and was something I was originally a bit hesitant about. Sounds a bit odd right? But, it was sweet yet tangy, and has since haunted my mind and memory. If I had the chance I would eat it again and again. Both the Plantation and the Centurion were delicious in their own right. The Plantation had a continuation of the honey theme, airing on the sweeter side of delicious as it contained Rocky Mountain Honey. The Centurion was a bit on the more traditional side. Regardless, they were both great and with added honey on the crusts: YUM!

Cooper's Hawk Winery & Restaurant
Columbus, Ohio (OH) View On Map
Cooper's Hawk opened at Easton Town Center in Columbus on Monday this week. Imagine my excitement when I saw they offered a gluten-free menu and my first thought was "I have to try it immediately." So by Wednesday, I was eating there for the first time.

I told our waitress about my gluten allergy and she made sure the kitchen knew I was there. They brought out the pretzel bread for my dinner date and a gluten-free bun for me to try. We started with an appetizer of shrimp wrapped in bacon - delicious. Dinner was the pepper jack, bacon cheeseburger - the bun was a little much for me since I already had one when we first got there so I ended up eating the burger naked. There were several sides I could select from and I ended up with Mary's mashed potatoes. I got a gluten-free brownie to take home and shared it with my husband. It was simply delicious. Light, fluffy and moist!

The manager even came out after my meal to make sure everything was ok and I enjoyed my meal. He explained the gluten-free process and that they are very sensitive to cross contamination and pride themselves on making safe gluten-free experiences for their guests.

Half Baked Fully Brewed
Lincoln, New Hampshire (NH) View On Map
For lunch we visited Half Baked Fully Brewed, a small family-friendly cafe which serves breakfast and lunch, a nice variety of smoothies, locally roasted Fair Trade coffee, tea, and pastry. Most all their sandwiches can be prepared on regular or multi-grain gluten-free bread which is delivered by a local 100% dedicated gluten-free bakery (Berry Delicious Bakery in Plymouth, NH). Upon hearing my request for gluten-free, Diana, the owner, swiftly and caringly took charge of my order (cleaned surfaces, toasted bread on foil), and I was able to enjoy a delicious hot pastrami sandwich and for dessert ... a gluten-free chocolate whoopie pie - whoopee indeed! The all-natural gluten-free desserts, also from Berry Delicious Bakery, included pumpkin whoopie pies, brownies, divine lava cakes, individual sized apple pies and an assortment of muffins. Gluten-free pizza dough, eggplant parmesan, and vegetable lasagna, were also available in their refrigerator - great to take-away and prepare in your kitchen (if you happen to book a condo with a kitchen!).

Mellow Mushroom
, Chain View On Map
I don't normally like chain restaurants, but this doesn't have the "chain" feeling. From the first email to customer service at Mellow Mushroom, I felt comfortable eating their gluten-free pizza. It is delicious and the staff was really knowledgable about which toppings were safe for me to eat. I will definitely go back here!

A popular brewery that brews their own GF beer. There is also a GF menu with bar food such as burgers, fries, and more. The waitstaff was extremely helpful and well-versed in gluten-free food.

New Cascadia Bakery
Portland, Oregon (OR) View On Map
In a more industrial neighborhood of SE Portland, but definitely worth the trip to this 100% gluten-free bakery. New Cascadia Bakery also supplies many Portland restaurants with their bread for sandwiches but it was worth the trip there to load up on gluten-free baked goods.

The owner of this restaurant has Celiac and the GF menu is extensive. I gorged myself on gluten-free mac and cheese, pulled pork lettuce wraps, and deep-fried apple fritters. YES!!! DEEP FRIED GF DOUGH!! In a funky neighborhood that I want to explore more, I am definitely going back here on my next trip to Portland.

Truffles Grill
Winter Park, Florida (FL) View On Map
Winter Park, FL has many restaurants that do gluten free right. Truffles Grill is one that I have been too several times and each time I have had a wonderful experience. They have an extensive gluten free menu and even serve gluten free bread before the meal.

Truffles is located next door to Chamberlin's Market and Cafe. It is one of our specialty stores in the Orlando area that carries a large variety of gluten free items, organic foods, vitamins and other specialty foods. Truffles Grill offers gluten free appetizers, salads, main dishes including a gluten free pasta dish, burgers, sides and a dessert. They will hand you a simple print out of their gluten free offerings when you enter the restaurant. It is easy to read, but you do have to check the prices on the main menu if you are concerned about the price. They state on the bottom of the menu that their french fries are not gluten free, nor is their soy sauce or barbecue sauce.

On our first visit I ordered the spinach salad with apples, pecans, goat cheese and the poppy seed dressing. This salad is fresh and delicious. I have ordered it twice now. I am usually a creature of habit when I find something I really enjoy and this salad is definitely one of those. The bread is from French Meadow Bakery. It is soft and buttery tasting yet dairy free. It is certified by The Gluten-Free Certification Organization (GFCO), a program of The Gluten Intolerance Group. It contains eggs and is manufactured on equipment with soy.

I have yet to go to Truffles for dinner. I like to go to restaurants for an early lunch because I feel like I will have a better chance of getting a meal that really is gluten free. Since I have had a few good experiences here I think the next visit needs to be a date night - sans kids. The inside of the restaurant is modern yet warm and comfortable and the patio is enjoyable whether it is warm or cool outside.

East Village, New York City (NYC) View On Map
Last week I checked out a L'Asso, an Italian restaurant in the East Village that can prepare every pizza on its menu gluten free. We went on a weeknight at 7ish and had no problem snagging a table for three. We sat towards the back with a great view of the large, open kitchen and had attentive and friendly service.

The gluten free pizza only comes in one size, so I knew I was on my own in choosing the flavor. Ultimately I opted for the Tartufo pizza, served with portobello mushrooms, pesto, choice of smoked or regular mozzarella, rosemary, truffle oil. I went for the regular mozzarella option and was quite pleasantly surprised by the pizza when it was brought out - it was huge! There were about 8 slices in the gluten free size so it is definitely enough to split with another two or three people depending on your appetites. The pizza, like so many other gluten free options, is a thin and crunchy crust. Overall I enjoyed L'Asso's pizza and the restaurant feel.

One Hot Mama's
Hilton Head Island, South Carolina (SC) View On Map
Monday night football - we had to go somewhere that had the game on! Typically sports bars are the last place you want to go if you have celiac. Tons of fried foods! I will say this place had several good options. I ended up with the beef brisket salad. Ahhmazing. The beef brisket was so tender and the meat was flavored nicely. No fatty pieces on the meat and the salad lettuce was fresh. They also said their wings were gluten free, which means they must cook them in a separate fryer than the regular fried foods. Highly recommended for a cheap bite to eat in Hilton Head! Aaron had tacos and really enjoyed them as well.

Wise Guys Steaks and Wine Bar
Hilton Head Island, South Carolina (SC) View On Map
First place we went to after gluten free Hilton Head Internet search. They have "gluten" spelled wrong on their website, which might contribute to not being able to find them on the Internet? It's a shame because this was the absolute best gluten free meal I've ever had. The Caesar salad with grits croutons knocked my socks off and the steak was so tender and delicious. I salivated all week for another meal there. The skillet potatoes were delicious as well. Because I now have the lactose allergy, I couldn't indulge in desert but my husband had a molten lava cake that he said was fabulous. Lots of wine selections. Very modern decor and feel inside. My husband didn't like the mirrors all over the walls but I thought they were cool. This dinner hot spot is not a place for kids. Pretty good wine menu also for all us legal drinking age adults!

Marcella's Ristorante
Columbus, Ohio (OH) View On Map
On a recent trip to Columbus, OH I stumbled upon a gluten-free gem that goes by the name of Marcella's Ristorante. I was on a mission to find a restaurant that 1) was within walking distance of my hotel and had gluten-free options, and 2) had gluten-free options that would actually fill me up after starving on convention style food for 2 full days.

So after walking three blocks on North High Street, I stepped through the double doors of the cutest restaurant ever. Wine bottles lined the walls, candles were lit on every table , and a deli counter [circa 1960] decorated the back of the restaurant. We were greeted by our waitress and I explained that I would be ordering off of the gluten-free menu [which was huge by the way]. I asked whether or not they provided gluten-free bread baskets, and the answer was yes - and it was homemade. I then asked about getting gluten-free CHEESE bread, and the waitress said she could work something out for me, and that she did.

After falling in love at first bite with the bread, and then inhaling it all at lightning fast speeds, I knew that my entree would be ballin. I ordered the Chicken Parmesan and penne noodles, and was confident the second round of carbo-loading would be something to write home about. The large piece of cheese-covered chicken next to the hearty serving of noodles were my dream come true.You may think that the large serving size would result in a take-home box, but you are wrong. I ate every last bite. I actually liked the meal so much that I actually came back the next night for pizza.

Healthy Living Market and Cafe
, Burlington, Vermont (VT) View On Map
Healthy Living Market was amazing. They have an entire gluten free section when you first enter the store. I don't mean a small section of an aisle. I mean a whole mini store within the store.

But that's not all! That only covers the market part. They also have a cafe with lots of gluten free goods. I got a gluten free raspberry muffin that was great. And then... I was able to order a sandwich from the deli for the first time since I was diagnosed with Celiac 2 years ago!

Joe's Crab Shack
, Chain View On Map
When we were out recently we stopped at Joe's Crab Shack as I knew they had a gluten free menu. I have started ordering things that need little to no modifying or deleting hoping that this keeps my food a bit safer. Hopefully this leaves less chance of a mistake when serving me a meal that really is gluten free. A lot of the fish dishes at Joe's require you to order without a sauce or glaze. For me the seafood buckets and steampots make more sense - is no need to delete or modify anything. I ordered Joe's Classic Steampot and enjoyed every minute of it. There was even enough crab to share some with the kids. A win win for all of us. The kids had a great time as did I along with a bonus: A great gluten free lunch with my family.

Red Robin
, Chain View On Map
I had checked online before arriving and had this Gluten Free Menu for Red Robin bookmarked on my phone in case a menu was not available at the restaurant. The waiter was familiar with gluten free and he brought out a handout for all allergy items at the restaurant. This was good as I will always then check the dairy list as I am dairy free and sometimes soy as I have eliminated it significantly. After deciding on the Red Robin bacon/cheese burger (hold the cheese) the waiter let me know they did have gluten free buns. I was also told I could have the steak fries, but they would cook them separate from the regular fries in olive oil. This was great. He was very knowledgeable and without me even having to ask. Loved it!

Red Robin overall did a great job serving me a gluten free meal. I love that they have gluten free buns and that I was able to have fries as well. I more importantly loved that I left feeling well and remained feeling that way.

Park Slope, New York City (NYC) View On Map
One of my favorite Italian restaurants in Park Slope, Brooklyn is Fornino. They offer an assortment of gluten free pastas and pizzas. The pasta they use is made out of corn flour and the pizza dough they use is made out of brown rice flour. I've tried both the pasta and pizza and they are excellent! As far as the pasta, I've had the penne pesto primavera and as for pizza, I've had the margherita classica pizza.

Park Slope, New York City (NYC) View On Map
Being on a gluten free diet, I don't often have the option of running into a cafe and picking up breakfast on my way to work or school. However, Naidre's located on Park Slope's bustling 7th Avenue between 11th and 12th streets has Everybody Eats' gluten free rolls readily available. I've had these rolls toasted in the morning with cream cheese and have been to Naidre's for lunch and enjoyed their Turkey and Cheddar sandwich on a gluten free roll and their grilled cheese on a gluten free roll. Naidre's offers an assortment of gluten free options, as well as, vegetarian and vegan choices. They also usually have some sort of gluten free bakery item such as a macaroon or cookie
