    I have eaten at a completely gluten-free restaurant only once (Posana’s in Asheville, NC). I kept having to remind myself that I could let my guard down and know I was safe. I could take a taste off friends/family plates. We shared desserts. There was no fear of possible cross-contamination. It was a surreal experience that I will never forget and the food was so amazing that the friends/family want to go back even though gluten isn’t a problem for them. I honestly think this is why I get so frustrated with the fad dieters (especially those that think they understand what being gluten-free entails). They have no clue what kind of life it is having to be constantly hypervigilant or the ever-present guilt that your loved-ones are held back from experiences because of your dietary constraints.

      There’s one completely gluten free restaurant in Austin – Wildwood Bakehouse. I went with about 8 friends, all of whom can eat gluten. I informed them when we ordered that I would be tasting everyone’s food. They are used to me not eating or having very few options when we go out to eat, so they were totally ok with my announcement that their food was fair game for me to try. :-D

    Dude- you need the app Find Me Gluten Free. It lets you search for restaurants near you, gives you reviews from fellow gluten free eaters, links to their menu, lets you call with the touch of a button, and will give you directions. Many reviewers will tell you how knowledgeable the staff was and if they got sick or not. I use it every time I travel, and sometimes even when I’m home and am looking for something outside of my tried and true.Really helps to make an informed decision about where to try your luck.

      Hey Steph…I do indeed have the app. I find it pretty hit or miss at times.

    unfortunately there is not a single entirely gluten free restaurant in all of Brooklyn. Siggy’s is close, but not entirely. glad it and the wedding were such good experiences.

      I agree, but they totally got it. The spoke the celiac language and did not just tell me what I wanted to hear. And oh my…that salmon burger.

      As comfortable as one could get eating out. They had a full menu listing all of their allergens so they definitely treat it right.

    I got married last year and we had a 100% gluten free wedding because I decided that on my wedding day I should get to eat all of the food and not have to worry. Our guests said it was the best food they had ever eaten at a wedding. Why? Because it was all fresh, local, naturally gluten free food like meat and vegetables cooked by a quality professional chef.

    Dear Dude
    One of us in the family has Celiac disease. We have found a fabulous restaurant in Brooklyn serving Gluten free meals and eaten there many, many times. Bogota Latin Bistro. And as well as great, safe food, the staff and management is friendly and professional.
