Noe Restaurant
Los Angeles, California (CA) View On Map
The Noe Restaurant is located within the Omni Hotel, but is open to everyone. It is very atmospheric, especially for a romantic meal, as there was live piano music. Between us, we ordered the Seafood Bouillabaisse and the Rib Eye Steak and they were both beyond delicious. The fish were all obviously freshly caught and there was so many types that I wasn't even sure of some of their names. My partner (a big steak lover) said that his steak was the best he had ever eaten. For dessert, I had homemade strawberry ice-cream with real pieces of strawberry in it! I could not recommend the food, or the service, highly enough. We were advised that the dress code was casual, but I would recommend dressing up a little as it does give the air of somewhere you wouldn't wear a t-shirt and shorts to! If you are in downtown Los Angeles, I would make it your business to have dinner in Noe.

Water Grill
Los Angeles, California (CA) View On Map
The Water Grill, as you may have guessed from its name, specialises in fresh fish dishes. However, it also does a selection of meat dishes. The menu is not specifically designed for coeliacs, however the staff are all very knowledgeable and were able to tell me whether various dishes contained gluten and also what they were cooked in. I ordered oysters for my starter and the waitress was able to recommend the best kind (as I had never tried them before). I had the Alaskan halibut for my main, which was cooked to perfection. The only reservation I would have about this restaurant is that it can be a bit pricey, but the food and service is flawless.

Short Cake
Los Angeles, California (CA) View On Map
So here's something awesome that happened. A nice lady got in touch with me to let me in on a secret - there was a gluten-free baker hanging out at a new, hip bakery and restaurant at The Farmer's Market at 3rd & Fairfax. I know what you're thinking - a gluten-free baker? What the? Needless to say I had a lovely afternoon with Short Cake baker (bakestress?) Hourie Sahakian who showed me in the inner workings of the Short Order restaurant and Short Cake bakery that are totally gluten-free friendly.

Of course, there are many, many, gluten-filled delights at Short Cake, as well as the scrumptious (for gluten-eaters) homemade hamburger buns at Short Order so Hourie and I discussed cross-contamination, and also, ummm, isn't she sick all the damn time? It's true that Hourie suffers - so we don't have to - and has given in a bit to her chosen profession, which I find fascinating as I don't think I've ever been so committed to something in my life. Except maybe cheese. Before you belly up to the coffee bar, Hourie wants to be clear that the bakery is in an open-air venue so flour will fly. While she personally does sanitize her gluten-free cook's tools and area, there's no controlling what's going on in the air. I ate every dang one of those gluten-free goodies and other than that sugar coma, I'm no worse for wear. But if you are especially sensitive, this may not be the best choice for your gluten-free brownie. Otherwise, get thee to the Short Cake.

Eddie's Pizzeria
Claremont, California (CA) View On Map
Imagine my surprise when we stumbled into a pizzeria that served gluten-free pasta. Weird, right? But Eddie's Pizzeria totally did, and I got the three cheese penne with broccoli and chicken. They also put little symbols by food that is naturally gluten-free. Nice.

The verdict? Well, I was starving after all that dragging kids up the snowy hill, so I thought it was great. But I also had a lovely little lady snow sport-ing with us try it, to make sure it tasted like pasta for the norms. Sam said it totally did. So there you have it, Celiacs. If you're heading to the slopes in Mt. Baldy, feel free to stop into Eddie's. It's around the corner from Patty's.

Buddha's Belly
Los Angeles, California (CA) View On Map
Just in time for the Chinese New Year, Buddha's Belly is a Asian-ish joint in Hancock Park and Santa Monica (and they also just opened in Thousand Oaks!) that has its very own gluten-free menu. If you're a gluten-hater, you know how difficult it is to get your Chinese fill since soy sauce will make you sick. Luckily the Buddha is all over that and they know how to make substitutions in case you want to order something that isn't on the gluten-free menu. Which I did. You can order the Baked Alaskan Cod and skip the spicy cucumber salad and be a-okay, gluten-wise. The Pad Thai is also a delicious choice that is easily made gluten-free as well. What I'm saying here, is these people know how to accommodate difficult folks like us. Hoo-rah!

Firefly Studio City
Los Angeles, California (CA) View On Map
Firefly in Studio City is a place that is all about being accommodating. So much so, that the man and I went back pretty quickly after our first visit because it was also incredible. From the house made chips with bacon creme fraiche, to the butter lettuce salad with poached rock shrimp in a buttermilk dressing, you can start your meal off with amazingness and a side of lychee martini and be perfectly happy. But I recommend you keep plowing through that menu and enjoy the roasted chicken with truffled white corn, crispy potato skins, and hazelnuts. I also had this crazy delicious cheese terrine and pork chop, which is no longer on the menu so I don't have the fancy words to describe it. You're just going to have to trust me that Firefly is the bomb - celiac or normal person. They may not have a designated g-free menu, but both times I dined happily at this establishment, the wait staff was incredibly knowledgable and accommodating.

Eddie Papa's
Pleasanton, California (CA) View On Map
Wow, what a lovely experience. I was initially reluctant to try Eddie Papa's in Pleasanton after finding out that they now offer gluten free options on the menu. I had been there prior to going GFCF and was not thrilled. Well, my opinion has now changed. I was impressed immediately when I informed the waiter at Eddie Papa's that we are gluten and dairy free and he actually knew what to do. He went over the menu with us clearly educated on the menu's gluten free options and knew exactly how to handle our table.

I am very impressed with their gluten free options. They offer gluten free chicken tenders made with a tempura type batter. The French fries are also gluten free, fried, upon request, in clean fresh oil uncontaminated with gluten. Sammy let me try one and I have to admit, they were very good. They serve Udi's bread for a gluten free sandwich option. All their salad dressings are gluten free and they have gluten free breadcrumbs and soy sauce. For breakfast, they also make gluten free pancakes and waffles. They even serve Red Bridge gluten free beer.

Trattoria Mollie
Santa Barbara, California (CA) View On Map
Tonight we decided to get dinner and then put up our Chrismukkah decorations. We went to Trattoria Mollie's so that we would have plenty of energy to put together our fake tree that has made it through two cross country moves. I had a salad with a lemon dressing and shaved parmigiano. It was nice and light. I then had the Medaglioni di Melanzane alla Piastra con Speck al Profumo di Pesto. This consisted of grilled eggplant with mozzarella, smoked ham and pesto sauce. I then had gluten-free pasta. You heard right... ANOTHER restaurant that offers GF pasta! Are we lucky or what?

I had the Spaghetti con Pancetta e Ricotta salata. It was GF spaghetti, smoked Italian bacon and ricotta cheese in a light tomato sauce. It was quite yummy. They use the Trader Joe's brand rice flour pasta. To finish off the meal, they made me a small portion of their Panna Cotta. This naturally GF dessert had a wonderful chocolate drizzle and was surrounded by a strawberry sauce. I don't know how we got anything done after eating the amount that we did.

Paprika Cafe
Monterey, California (CA) View On Map
We hopped in our car and headed down Highway 1 to Carmel Valley for Labor Day weekend. I did a bit of research before our trip for potential restaurants and stops, and found what looked to be an excellent gluten free option in Monterey, CA called Paprika Cafe. I adore any Mediterranean influenced meal. Something about the cuisine makes my taste buds sing. The food is light, delicious, yet satisfying.

We entered the tiny cafe and Christophe, the owner, warmly greeted us. Christophe is not just the owner - he's the waiter, the chef, the busy boy, and the cashier. He welcomed us as if we were guests in his home. When I told him of my dietary restrictions, he smiled and said he could absolutely take care of me - that I could have any of the vegetarian or meat platters, but that he would switch the pita bread with some warmed corn tortillas and the tabouleh with a spinach salad. How nice to have someone who immediately understands and also has thought ahead about substitutions so you can still enjoy a full meal! I chose the garlic chicken based on the Yelp reviews and my word, I was not disappointed.

Masala Dosa
San Fransisco, California (CA) View On Map
Dreamy, delicious Indian food is finally available gluten free in our neighborhood, the Inner Sunset. Masala Dosa recently opened and when we saw that were offering South Indian food along with the widely available Northern Indian cuisine, we knew we were in for a treat. Masala Dosa serves your traditional curries but also a thin crepe dish called a dosa. The dosas are made with rice flour and are usually gluten free, naturally. Inside is a choice of filling, usually a mix of spiced potatoes and onions. The dish is always served with sambhar (center), a soup made of lentils, and various chutneys. Here, they have a coconut chutney that's out of this world.

The staff is incredibly welcoming to those with food allergies or dietary restrictions. We've been here several times and while the menu is extensive even with my dietary restrictions, I always order this traditional masala dosa. From first bite they hooked me, and I find myself craving this at odd hours of the day.
