Black Market Liquor Bar
Los Angeles, California (CA) View On Map
So we rolled up to Black Market Liquor Bar and went on to throw back the whiskey drinks. Which are inventive, and crazy good, as well as being gluten-free. Although one whiskey drink has a beer factor (which is clearly marked on the menu) so skip that action. Of course once it came time to order I was looking over the seasonal menu of artisanal cheeses and ahi tuna, and started to sweat it a little bit as it appeared that gluten was on the side of most dishes. Yes, we did consider leaving but wow, am I glad I stayed put and asked the waiter about the gluten-free options available. He came back with a menu that was not only fully marked, but warning signs on dishes that, while gluten-free, had the possibility of cross-contamination. Solid. I had an amazing dish of Kurobuta pork cheek, creamed polenta mushrooms, and pickled shallots. I was also able to enjoy some of that ahi tuna I mentioned earlier, a lovely kale salad, and a BBQ short rib situation. Yes, droooooool.

Tupelo Junction
Santa Barbara, California (CA) View On Map
When my husband made a reservation at Tupelo Junction in Santa Barbara I was suspicious. After all, I'd enjoyed some lovely fried chicken there years ago when were visiting from New York and first dating, and long before I was no longer allowed to shove gluten in my fried chicken hole. But guess what? That SoCal gluten-free friendly thing came in very handy as the menu was marked with items that could be made gluten-free! Like lovely Red Beans and Rice with roasted corn, tomatoes, greens and shallots and Tupelo Honey Vinaigrette Salad w/roasted sunflower seeds.

C Casa
Napa, California (CA) View On Map
The menu was divine - you can view it on their website - and my friend chose a salmon taco, one of their blackboard specials. Honestly, the whole menu looked amazing and I wished that we had been able to have several meals there to try a few more things! The meals tasted fresh, the flavours were piquant and combined well. The salmon was beautifully cooked and our only complaint was that it was impossible to eat tidily! It was a very impressive meal, a very healthy option, and it was wonderful not to have to pick and choose from the menu to try and find things that appeared to be gluten-free. If you're ever in the township of Napa, run (don't walk!) to the Oxbow Centre for a meal from C Casa.

Pica Pica Maize Kitchen
Napa, California (CA) View On Map
I decided that as I'd never eaten Venezuelan food, Pica Pica was for me! PicaPica Maize Kitchen is located in the Oxbow Centre in Napa itself. The Oxbow Centre is full of amazing food outlets. There was a sign saying everything 100% wheat and gluten-free. Yippee!!!! I decided to try some things I'd never heard of, and selected a Cachapa with Pepeada. Yep, there you have it! It was a sweet corn pancake with chicken and creamy avocado filling. And although I'd had Empanadas before, I thought I would also give those a go. I would describe this as comfort food really. The cachapa was sweet and crispy and the filling balanced it out nicely. The empanadas were three different flavours - refried beans, cheese and a three-meat stew, and came with a chipotle sauce. They were deep fried, soft but crispy and truly delicious. The gluten-free beer was Bards, which I'd had last year when I was in the US. It was so nice to be in a place where eating gluten-free was easy and just another of the offerings available.

Samovar Tea Lounge
San Francisco, California (CA) View On Map
Samovar Tea Lounge is a lovely spot in San Francisco. Samovar is the perfect cozy spot to bring a book or take a break after a long day of walking around town. Their selection of teas is heavenly, each with a unique description, and the servers are more than helpful when it comes to asking for advice about what to order. What's even more delightful? Samovar features some allergy-friendly and gluten-free items on their menu. These items are clearly marked "gf" for gluten free and "v" for vegan next to the items.

For breakfast, their gluten-free ginger and quinoa waffles are delicious - the vanilla palm nectar is a wonderful surprise. Try the Mini Moorish platter if you're looking for an allergy-friendly sampling snack; it consists of edamame hummus, roasted eggplant and more. For lunch or dinner, all three of their current salads and all three of their current rice bowls are gluten-free! The Tea Soup and Jook bowls can be made dairy- and egg-free and the baked tempeh salad can also be made dairy- and egg-free. The grilled tempeh sandwich can be made dairy- and egg-free, but sadly, none of their sandwiches are gluten-free.

Urban Picnic
San Francisco, California (CA) View On Map
Of the many spots off Union Square in the Financial District of San Francisco, more and more are opening up and more and more are offering menus that cater to those with food allergies or gluten intolerance. I stumbled upon Urban Picnic one day and it has become a favorite lunch spot of mine when it comes to allergy-friendly and gluten-free menu items.

Urban Picnic calls itself a "California Asian Eatery" serving pho, rice bowls, salads and much more. It's the perfect place for to-go, sit-in or group / office bulk orders. While there are fish, tree nuts and peanuts noted on the menu, I personally have not had an issue with the way my dishes have been prepared. Urban Picnic notes cute little icons for gluten free, dairy free, vegetarian, vegan, superfood(!) and nut/seeds. So, if you're gluten free, you'd just scan for all the items noted with a "GF" icon. You can expect to find a lot!

Their fresh pressed juices and gluten-free desserts are total hidden gems of the restaurant. While they're noticeable, they're not the star. But trust! You must try whatever juice they have for the day. My recent jaunt had me drinking cantaloupe watermelon juice. And my dessert was a gluten-free banana walnut cookie. Really enhanced that day's lunch!

Banker's Hill Bar and Restaurant
San Diego, California (CA) View On Map
I was very surprised upon walking in by the decor. "Banker's Hill" as a neighborhood sounds stuffy and pretentious to me and for that reason I expected the restaurant to have a similar stodgy feeling. Nothing could be further from the truth. It was around 6:45pm when we arrived and the restaurant was buzzing with activity; we were lucky to get a seat at the community table! We ordered a few dishes to share, beginning with the Chili Marinated Shrimp Skewers and Local Strawberry Salad. The shrimp skewers were well spiced and served alongside corn tortilla chips and guacamole. The strawberry salad was divine; sitting on a corner of the plate was a delicious cylinder of goat cheese which we wasted no time in dipping our forks into. For our entrees we ordered the Snapper. We both agreed that the corn tamale was perfectly prepared and that the braised tomatillo added great flavor to the dish. The service was great, the ambiance was perfect, and, most importantly, the food was delicious. Just as importantly, of course, was the server's knowledge about which dishes were and were not gluten free (or possibly made to be gluten free). I'll definitely be back.

Whisknladle
San Diego, California (CA) View On Map
I dove right into the menu after ordering my drink, knowing that I'd likely be ordering a full meal since. I asked the waitress to guide me through some of the gluten free options and she said that most everything could be altered to be gluten free, with some dishes requiring more alterations than others. I had looked at the menu during work so I had a pretty good idea of what I wanted to order and was glad to hear my hunger wouldn't be stifled by gluten issues.

I began with the Whisknladle Caesar without croutons and it was awesome. It was a pretty plain salad, with long shears of romaine lettuce sprinkled with parmesan cheese. While I know it wasn't the most exciting appetizer on the menu it was executed perfectly; I've had enough experiences to know that while a Caesar salad is a common menu item it isn't always prepared as well as Whisknladle's.

For my entree I went with the scallops prepared "a la plancha." The order was still delicious, with the scallops coming buried beneath a pile of crows pass spinach. I wasn't familiar with that type of spinach but it was very similar to an arugula in its size and texture. The pine nuts added a nice touch to the dish, but the focus was on the five scallops, all of which were grilled to perfection.

I ended the meal with the chocolate mousse. I'll definitely visit Whisknladle again. Our waitress was super helpful, the food was delicious, the ambiance was great, and the location near the La Jolla Cove makes for some nice walking before and after dinner.

The Mission Restaurant
San Diego, California (CA) View On Map
This morning I visited The Mission, a brunch hot spot in Mission Beach which normally comes with an hour plus wait. After picking up some coffee (and summer fruit passion tea for me) we had . The restaurant has a pretty big gluten free menu and the waitress was helpful with choosing my breakfast dish. Ultimately I went with the Plata Verde con Huevos as it most closely approximated my normal brunch order of huevos rancheros. They were delicious, definitely different than huevos rancheros with the flavor of the sweet corn tamales and roasted tomatillo sauce. I enjoyed the food but was a little thrown off by the ambiance. All in all, I'd visit again, particularly because of its awesome location steps away from the beach. The restaurant also has locations in North Park and the East Village which may bring in a different clientele.

TOAST Enoteca & Cucina
San Diego, California (CA) View On Map
Recently I was invited to visit Toast Enoteca and Cucina to sample the restaurant's gluten free menu. Regardless of the restaurant's neighborhood the restaurant itself was friendly and welcoming. I was a bit late so I joined my friend at our table and noticed she had an iPad. I joked that she brought her own in case she got bored when it was the restaurant's method of displaying its wine menu. I asked the waitress about the rationale behind the iPad and she explained that the restaurant introduces new bottles of wine so frequently it made more sense to have them displayed on an iPad rather than having to often reprint paper menus.

Moving on to the real reason you're here: the gluten free options. The waitress was helpful in explaining the gluten free options and the menu in some cases speaks for itself, with markings alongside options that can be made gluten free (and/or vegetarian). I ordered gluten free spaghetti with diavola sauce, my friend ordered a gluten free Verde Bianco e Rosso pizza and we decided to split an order of roasted cauliflower with cheese in a tomato sauce. All of the restaurant's gluten free options like the pizza crust and spaghetti are made in house; later on in our meal the manager came over and told us that the restaurant often changes up its gluten free pasta offering, including ravioli, fettuccine, and ravioli.

While we sipped our wine and caught up the cauliflower was delivered to our table. It was dripping in a thin tomato broth and delicately covered with melted cheese. In a word: delicious. It wasn't too heavy nor too light as the beginning of our meal. Our entrees were similarly excellent. The diavola sauce had a great kick to it and the pasta had a texture that closely paralleled the taste of real pasta, not a simple task. The pizza was similarly great and definitely a great item to share. All in all, Toast was a definite success: the service was great, the food was delicious, and the wine flows freely from the various wine taps. While it may not be in the most bumpin' area of town I would definitely recommend it to anybody looking for gluten free Italian options.
