The Mission Restaurant
San Diego, California (CA) View On Map
Last weekend I was able to try The Mission, in Mission Beach, a restaurant that has been on my "Must Go To" list as it is named one of the "Top 25 Best Breakfast Spots in the Country," by USA Today. The Mission has also received numerous awards in San Diego for their spectacular breakfast options, so you can understand my desire to try this local favorite. The Mission's focus is to provide simple, healthy, tasty food with a whimsical edge at an affordable price, and they do just that! All of their dishes are made from simple and fresh ingredients that pleases the eye as well as the palette. The atmosphere of The Mission is constantly buzzing with locals and visitors from around the country. I had heard they make fresh gluten free rosemary bread, so I was anxious to try one of their signature sandwiches on their famous loaf. The Mission conveniently has a gluten free menu which lists entrees that are gluten free or can be prepared gluten free. Please note products that contain gluten are prepared in the same kitchen.

I enjoyed their Chicken Pesto Sandwich- a house made pesto and grilled chicken with mayo, tomato, greens on fresh rosemary bread for $9.25. I also enjoyed a blended frappe, an iced coffee blended with cocoa and milk for $4.25. I highly recommend this beach favorite this summer, although the wait may be long, grab one of their signature coffees, smoothies or shake to sip on while the time passes. It is definitely worth it!

Pizza Rev
Chain View On Map
PizzaRev, a Los Angeles-based chain, allows customers to craft their own pizza using a wide variety of unlimited ingredients, all for one price. We had a chance earlier this week to check out the PizzaRev concept and sample some pizzas. To create your pizza, you walk through a cafeteria line that a friend of ours described as "like Subway, but for pizza." A crew of pizza-builders help you select your sauce, your cheese, and an array of toppings, from sweet fennel sausage, to anchovies, to fresh arugula. Then the pizza gets fired up in PizzaRev's custom-built 9,600 pound stone-bed "Fire-Deck" oven, and three minutes later, your own personalized pizza is ready.

Essex, Massachusetts (MA) View On Map
I discovered Woodman's restaurant many moons ago (pre-celiac) while living in Boston. When a little respite from city life was needed, friends and I would drive up the north shore. I hadn't been back to Woodman's for many years, until I discovered a few years ago (post-celiac diagnosis), that much of their food is gluten-free (who knew? I never had any reason to ask - pre-celiac!), and now Woodman's has become one of my all-time favorite "gluten-free" eateries where I can enjoy a plate of New England fried clams, scallops & shrimp occasionally! Usually fried seafood is coated with wheat flour and off-limits to the gluten-intolerant, Woodman's uses corn flour dipped in oil to achieve their perfect golden crust, which is light and very delicious!

If seafood is not your thing, Woodman's offers grilled chicken, chicken fingers, hot dogs too. I ordered a combo of fried shrimp and scallops, with French fries and cole slaw. Woodman's is open year-round, so you can experience New England seafood anytime of the year! Expect long lines in the summer, but don't let that discourage you, as they move quickly.

Tender Greens
Chain View On Map
We went out to dinner at Tender Greens, one of my favorite restaurants when I lived in West Hollywood. It's a fast casual salad shop with some sandwiches on the menu too. I spoke with the order taker about my gluten free options and she suggested the Thai Shrimp which has little gem lettuce, green papaya, thai basil, citrus peanuts, coriander, chili lime vinaigrette. I was a little nervous about the order because she didn't seem 100% confident that the item was gluten free, so I asked her to double check. After she double checked with the manager I felt assured that the salad would be gluten free. As we walked down the line towards the cashier to make our payment and spotted some delicious-looking gluten free treats. They had both a gluten free chocolate chip peanut butter cookie and a flourless treat so obviously Taylor and I ordered both. The salad was delicious. I appreciate Tender Greens' salads because they don't go super heavy on the dressing and are just flavorful enough to taste good while still appearing to be healthy. Perhaps this is only an appearance and the salad actually had ten million calories, but if that's so it definitely fooled me. The chocolate chip peanut butter cookie was delicious. It had big chocolate chunks in it and halved peanuts so it had a very natural taste to it. The flourless treat on the left of the above photo was also great; very dense, but great. I would definitely choose the cookie over the flourless item, but that's just me.

Russo's New York Pizzeria
Chain View On Map
As a native New Yorker, and previous fan of authentic Bronx pizza (before I was diagnosed with celiac disease, of course), I've come to realize that it's incredibly difficult to master the art of gluten-free pizza making. Russo's New York Pizzeria, however, helped bring a slice of gluten-free, New York-style pizza to Houston! I had heard of Russo's gluten-free options during the Celiac Expo I attended in June, and decided that a Friday evening would be the perfect time to try some of their dishes. My friend and I decided to reward ourselves for surviving the hectic workweek, and visited Russo's Galleria Area location. We sampled a pasta dish and specialty pizza! Both were gluten-free of course!

The New York Village Pizza was topped with pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms, olives, peppers, Canadian bacon, hamburger meat, and mozzarella cheese! I particularly enjoyed the taste and texture of the crust; it was the perfect combination of thin and crispy. The toppings were yummy as well. So far, this is probably the best gluten-free pizza I have tasted in restaurants! I thought Russo's did a fantastic job with their pasta dish! The gluten-free pasta maintained its structure, did not break, and had a flavor that matched well with the cheese and sauce. Next time I venture to Russo's I'll definitely be more adventurous and try a "less traditional" pasta dish; however, this gave me a great opportunity to evaluate the mechanics of this gluten-free dish.

Overall, Russo's did a fantastic job with their gluten-free options! Personally, I think that gluten-free appetizer options would add to the overall dining experience. Something like gluten-free mozzarella sticks, or soft breadsticks would complement the rest of the meal perfectly.

Bloom's New York Delicatessen & Restaurant
Murray Hill, New York City (NYC) View On Map
This restaurant has been on my must visit list for years. The last time I actually tried to go they were closed as a movie was using it as a location. As luck would have it, a few weeks later I had to take care of some business in the area and found myself a block away from Bloom's - so guess where I decided to have lunch.

Bloom's is a typical small New York City deli/diner. The place was buzzing around lunchtime with both locals and tourists alike. It's proximity to Grand Central Terminal makes it an ideal spot to grab a bit on your way in or out of the City. We were welcomed and shown to a table. Coleslaw and a pickle tray were soon presented and we were noshing while perusing the menu. The gluten-free menu is separate and I had to ask for it. There is a huge selection of gluten-free items ranging from burgers and fries to pancakes and sandwiches. After looking through the menu, I found myself wanting a BLT (which is not on the menu) and this being a diner knew it would not be a problem. Sure enough, when I asked, the waitress didn't even bat an eyelash. So a toasted BLT with a side of potato salad would soon be on its way. Perhaps the thing that made me most giddy was when the waitress shouted the orders to the open kitchen visible behind a high counter and for the first-time ever I hear the words gluten-free BLT shouted as an order (not to mention she confirmed with the kitchen with a vocal that's on gluten-free bread). Nice!

When my plate arrived it was a true thing of beauty. Perfectly toasted bread that was jam-packed with a New York-sized amount of lettuce, tomato, and bacon. I am not sure what gluten-free bread they use but the crust looked very familiar.

Overall it was a pretty good experience. Would I go back? Absolutely. There is a short stack of gluten-free pancakes with my name on it. The nicest thing about Bloom's is being able to walk-in off the street, grab a sandwich, and be on your way without having to search for a gluten-free option, explain everything to the server and kitchen, and, in the end cross your fingers that it will all work out. I walked out thinking wow, I just had a gluten-free BLT for lunch. A truly great feeling.

No. 9 Park
Boston, Massachusetts (MA) View On Map
Cathy and I have eaten at a number of top restaurants. All have been pretty good to "wow, I can't wait to go back again" great. However, my favorite restaurant of all is No. 9 Park. No. 9 Park is the flagship restaurant in the growing Barbara Lynch empire. The quality of the food at No. 9 Park continues to be consistently awesome as her businesses grow, unlike another famous chef from around these parts whose restaurants I used to love but now seem to be nothing all that special. Recently, I celebrated my 23rd wedding anniversary at No. 9 Park. The evening started off with two gluten free rolls, which were delivered on a separate plate so there would be no cross contamination. Piping hot, they were crispy on the outside and light and airy on the inside. My appetizer was a tuna sashimi crudo. I wanted something light that would not fill me up and this was the perfect dish. It was beautifully plated, with very fresh tuna. Next came the duck. I LOVE the duck at No. 9 Park. Why? I find most places that serve duck don't render the fat enough. Thus, the skin never gets that crispy. I don't know how Chef Lynch instructs her chefs on how to cook duck, but I get crispy skin each and every time, while the meat of the duck remains moist. I mean, really...what more could you ask for? This is the gluten free dessert I had. A chocolate fudge "round" with some ice cream on top along with some other goodies to give different textures. I should also note, that the service is just as good as the food.

Dick's Kitchen

And there was also a super rad burger joint that also served Omission alongside a gluten-free bun surrounding a delicious burger that was damn tasty. Maybe the best bun I've ever had? Thinking about it, thinking about it . . . Dick's Kitchen rocked my world. Rocked it.
