If you live anywhere near a Harry and Izzy’s, I highly recommend them. Although the prices dictate that they only be used for special occasions (for most of us, anyway), they have a separate kitchen that is dedicated for people with different food allergies. They will prepare your food away from the rest of the kitchen and, most importantly, clean everything when they’re done. When I took my wife there for our anniversary, I was hesitant, but the manager assured me that they took these things very seriously. After placing our order, a manager came back to the table to ensure that the server had gathered all of the necessary information before the cooks started working on the order. After my wife didn’t get ill from the meal, I made another reservation to go back for her birthday, and was surprised to find that they had saved my information in their system as “wife has Celiac Disease.” VERY impressive, and I highly recommend them. We have been there five times now, and never had any problems.
I was in Indy the other weekend, and hesitant to try alot of places, but gave them a shot. I have never been more impressed than when I was there. The waitress literally said she was making it her MISSION to insure my meal was safe and correct. Secondly, the chef stopped the line while cooking my meal to insure no ingredients could contaminate it in the kitchen. Third – HOLY CRAP was it good.
It wasn’t the cheapest meal i’ve had – but every penny was worth it. Of any experience I’ve had dining while having celiac – this was THE BEST by a long mile… and then some.
BTW – I had the Lamb T-Bone and a few sides…. wow.
