Pizza Rev
Chain View On Map
One genius pointed me in the direction of Pizza Rev. Have you guys been here yet? Basically, it's kind of like the Subway of pizza joints wherein you pick your crust, your sauce, your toppings, all on an assembly line. Only Pizza Rev not only has organic, antibiotic-free, fresh ingredients, they also have gluten-free crust. But it's not just that they have gluten-free crust. Here's what happened when I asked for gluten-free crust for not only myself, but also my daughter who still wants to be gluten-free even though she totally does not have to be.

The pizza master behind the counter said, "Preference or allergy?" I almost kissed him. It was also amazing to watch as I explained my daughter's pizza was gluten-free by preference, but I had celiac. Not only did he change his gloves but my gluten-free crust stayed on a clean tray the entire time, even while being shoved into the wood burning stove. Additionally, I asked for sausage, and they knew the sausage was not gluten-free. I said, hey, how about some prosciutto? They said yes, then stopped when they realized the prosciutto had come into contact with the sausage. A fresh hunk of pig was brought out to be sliced into uncontaminated prosciutto for me. Seriously. That happened.

The really fun thing about Pizza Rev is you can pick your own toppings. You can go for a white pizza, a red sauce, and mix and match until your heart is content. They are all personal-sized, so no one has to go half-and-half, and obviously, you can get your gluten-free on without worrying about what else is happening around you. Super duper cool. Super.

Verde Cocina
Portland, Oregon (OR) View On Map
The very first restaurant I walked into - unbeknownst to me - was TOTALLY GLUTEN-FREE. Yep. Verde Cocina is all gluten-free, all the time. I had kale enchiladas wrapped up in house made corn tortillas. I went more for the traditional, but still super interesting gringas con mole with local pork. Yep.

Uneeda Burger
Seattle, Washington (WA) View On Map
We decided to walk the block up to Uneeda Burger where I figured I would be able to get a protein-style burger at the very least. Much to my surprise the restaurant offers gluten free buns, so we decided to pick up lunch from Uneeda Burger before heading over to Gasworks Park (Map) for a view of the city. I ordered the #8: crimini mushrooms, porcini & black truffle sea salt, shallots & gruyere cheese. It was delicious! As I said, we took the burgers to go for a view in Gasworks Park so while the below picture may not be great of the burger make sure to check out the beautiful view of the Seattle skyline in the background. The burger was a bit messy but the best burgers are, right? Uneeda Burger is a great spot with gluten free options for those of you living in (or visiting) Seattle and in need of a burger fix.

Razzi's Pizzeria
Seattle, Washington (WA) View On Map
I had done a brief Google search for gluten free restaurants in Seattle and had happened upon Razzi's Pizzeria. The menu looked decent online so we thought we would give it a whirl. When we walked in we were easily seated without any wait; the place wasn't particularly busy. The waitress asked whether we had any eating restrictions, including gluten or any veganism. When she handed me the enormous gluten free menu I initially thought she was confused; how could a gluten free menu offer so much? My sister had a "regular" menu and we compared the two, noting that almost everything on the "regular" menu had a gluten free substitute, including the restaurant's pasta, pizzas, calzones, grinders, etc. I was like a kid in a candy shop! They also had a great gluten free beer selection, including my favorite, Estrella Damm Daura. They also had Bard's Tale from my hometown of Utica, NY! It was nice to see a little bit of home while my sister and I were thousands of miles away.

My sister is awesome and agreed to eat a gluten free meal so I could try a variety of options. We ordered the garlic bread to begin, a W.O.W. calzone, a mushroom pizza. Very light on the carbs, obviously. The first words out of my mouth after biting into that delicious looking calzone: "This is the best thing to ever happen to me in my entire life." There was really nothing like having a calzone after nine years of Celiac Disease. It was delicious, despite my sister telling me it wasn't quite a "true" calzone. Regardless we devoured the calzone and the pizza we ordered and both were delicious. As for the garlic bread, it received the highest compliment any gluten free food can get: my sister said it tasted "real."

I enjoyed the flavors of the calzone but I absolutely loved the pizza. All of the restaurant's breads are made in-house. When I asked our waitress why the restaurant began introducing gluten free food, she sent the owner, Amir, over to speak to us. He told us that many people in his family have gluten intolerance so he started experimenting with gluten free flours about five years ago. He said the toughest one to crack was the calzone, because the consistency needed to be different but similar to that of the pizza crust. We sincerely thanked him for making such awesome gluten free options available to people in Seattle and travelers like my sister and I. If you are gluten free and passing through Seattle, Razzi's needs to be on your list. This place is a must.

Flying Apron
Seattle, Washington (WA) View On Map
Flying Apron is an awesome gluten free bakery in Seattle that you must check out if you're in the Seattle area. It's in the Fremont neighborhood (right around the corner from the Fremont Troll) with lots of little shops around it. Up front is a peanut butter chocolate chip cookie (with chunks of peanuts) and a chocolate chocolate cupcake. And yes, this was our breakfast.

Perhaps "bakery" is a misnomer, as Flying Apron also serves up delicious items like the lasagna pictured below. I've rarely seen something more beautiful. Best of all, the food we ate from Flying Apron was all delicious. Despite only being in Seattle for 3.5 days, we made it a point to stop in twice. If you're gluten free and in the Seattle area, Flying Apron is a must. My favorite part of the shop is that it is a fully functioning café, not just a bakery with a display case. You can bring your laptop, a book, or whatever and have a drink while snacking on gluten free food.

Baba Louie's
Hudson, New York (NY) View On Map
I tend to spend a fair amount of time up in the Hudson Valley throughout the year and I am always on the hunt for new gluten-free locales to sample. Just a few years ago the area was truly lacking in any significant gluten-free options but in the past five or so years there has been an explosion of restaurants either with dedicated gluten-free menus or at the very least an increased knowledge when it comes to handling diners with special dietary needs or food allergies. A recent visit to Hudson, New York, a sweet little town with lots of great small specialty shops, allowed me to visit Baba Louie's. As always, I did my research before the visit to get a handle on their menu and gluten-free options. There are actually quite a few gluten-free options and all are clearly noted on the menu - everything from sandwiches to pizza. Not only are the gluten-free items clearly marked on the menu but gluten-free diners also receive a laminated card that explains the kitchen procedures to ensure that diners will have a safe experience. Of course, in a shared kitchen, nothing is 100%, but I was extremely comfortable with the steps they were taking to make sure I would be just fine. Additionally, that laminated card also details where there gluten-free pizza crusts come from (Better Bread Company) and the full ingredient list. Nice.

I had a hankering for pizza when I visited. I created my own gluten-free creation of Gouda, Parmesan, Canadian bacon, and basil. The combination made for a delicious flavor combination. The mellow Gouda paired perfectly with the bold Parmesan and surprising subtle Canadian bacon. A generous top-layer of fresh fragrant basil rounded out this creation. The crust was perfectly cooked and crisp and actually one of the better pre-made crusts I have come across.

Kingston, New York (NY) View On Map
I was doing a bit of research and came across Dolce on Broadway on the way down to the waterfront. There was one thing on the menu that particularly caught my eye - gluten-free buckwheat crêpes - so I thought I would definitely give it a go. Dolce is a small and funky little breakfast and lunch place. Having lived in Nice, France for a while, I am a bit of a crêpe aficionado and rarely see buckwheat crêpes (or Galette) here in the States and Dolce did not disappoint. I opted for the ham and Swiss cheese crêpe. Not really sure what to expect would arrive I have to say that I was blown away when a tremendous, perfectly prepared (and folded) crêpe arrived at the table - it was truly a thing of beauty - but how would it taste.

Well, my worries were quickly appeased when I first cut-into the crêpe. It was perfectly crisp and wonderfully thin. The ham and cheese within were perfectly cooked with the cheese a fantastically gooey treat. The contrast of textures from crisp to soft and the perfect balance of saltiness to the earthiness of the buckwheat made this a delight for the palate. If you are in the Kingston-area, I would highly recommend giving Dolce a try. If memory serves, they only accept cash so be prepared. Also note that they are open for breakfast and lunch only - no dinner.

The Grand Hyatt Kauai
Kauai, Hawaii (HI) View On Map
I wanted to share our vacation last year and spotlight The Grand Hyatt Kauai as a gluten free accommodating resort. The resort exceeded every expectation in regards to their understanding of the gluten free diet, their entree selection and let's not forget to mention the amazing resort and pool. As confident as I feel at times with my diet and knowing what I can and cannot have, I still get nervous and anxious when traveling and venturing out of my comfort food bubble. Weeks prior to any of our vacation departure dates, you can find me determining what amenities our hotel room includes, whether there is a mini fridge, toaster, or microwave in the room and then I plan accordingly what snacks and food items I can take.

I was stressing until I came across "Grand Hyatt Kauai's Gluten Free Booklet & Dining Guide" my anxiety and fear went away instantly with one click. This is a "Celiac's dream come true" word document. Check it out! You might do a double take, I sure did! The booklet lists each item that is gluten free and/or can be prepared gluten free at each restaurant at the Grand Hyatt. Whether we were craving Italian, Japanese, a quick bite, ordering room service or just picking up a snack at the local hotel shop, their gluten free symbol (gf) was EVERYWHERE! Below is a summary of our stay at the Grand Hyatt in Kauai with details of the incredible gluten free dining we experienced at each restaurant.

Each night Mark and I declared that that night's meal was the BEST! But each night we ventured to another restaurant at the resort, and the Hyatt continued to delivered exceptional service and another gluten free mouth watering meal. I want to thank the entire staff at the Grand Hyatt in Kauai, for making my stay one that I will never forget and always brag about. Your gluten free hospitality and service exceeded every expectation, we cannot wait to visit your piece of paradise again soon.

Hearthstone Restaurant
Breckenridge, Colorado (CO) View On Map
My absolute favorite place we ate in the Vail area was Hearthstone Restaurant in Breckenridge, which is about 40 minutes from Vail. Hearthstone is housed in a historic, Victorian-era house in downtown Breckenridge, surrounded by mountains and a great Main Street atmosphere. The restaurant has an excellent wine list, as well as a large variety of unique dishes; it also offers a gluten-free menu separate from the regular menu, so there is no guesswork involved. I had the Wagyu beef flank steak, which came with sherry braised hazel dell mushrooms, slow roasted tomatoes, spinach and parmesan truffle mashers. The potatoes were superb, with an excellent garlicky flavor, and the tomatoes were well roasted. For dessert, I had the banana split, a gourmet-designed dish with caramelized bananas with macadamia nuts and vanilla gelato served separately on a plate. The coconut rum chocolate ganache was served on the side, and was delicious.

Old Forge Pizza Company
Vail, Colorado (CO) View On Map
On one of those nights in, we decided to order pizza. To my delight, most of the pizza companies in and around Vail offer gluten-free selections. We ordered from Old Forge Pizza Company, which offers regular pizzas as well as gluten-free personal pizzas. I ordered the gluten-free Piper Pizza, which included banana peppers, roasted red peppers, bacon, local goat cheese and fresh tomatoes. It was very delicious and had a gourmet-type flavor to it. The goat cheese was very creamy, and the peppers added spice without it being too much. I would definitely recommend Old Forge to anyone visiting the Vail area.
