After completing my Whole30 and realizing that overindulging in gluten makes me feel less than stellar, I started looking for gluten-free options as often as I could. I still eat gluten occasionally but it is definitely a treat for me these days rather than a staple. After uncovering several gems I thought I would share what I’ve tried and liked so far:
Lancaster’s menu is clearly marked with gluten-free options, which I appreciate. My favorite entrée there is the Satsuma Chicken. Get the Potato Chips with Garlic Aioli to start. You’ll thank me later.
I’ve tried several gluten-free pizza crusts and Boston Pizza’s is the winner so far.
Brewed Awakening has salads, crustless quiches, fresh rolls and desserts that are wheat-free. The wheat-free carrot cake is phenomenal.
Kneaded is a completely gluten-free bakery here in the city. Their desserts are out of this world good.
I tried Serendipity a few weeks ago and had the most phenomenal BBQ Bacon Grilled Cheese sandwich. I also sampled the peanut butter cheesecake which was massive and loaded with peanut butter cups. Her menu changes weekly and I’ve found everything to be very reasonably priced, especially for gluten-free food.
Sprout Catering has a regular menu with gluten-free options as well as a “Gluten-Free Fridays” lunch feature. The food there is always fresh and healthy.
Did you know you can get your Five Guys burger wrapped in a lettuce leaf? It’s surprisingly satisfying. Oh, and don’t forget the fries!
Rock Creek has several great gluten-free mains. I’ve tried and liked the Albuquerque Chicken and the Southwest Caesar Salad.
Note: If you are celiac, there may be cross contamination at some of these places.
