Gluten Free Restaurants in Connecticut

  To begin planning your gluten free vacation in Connecticut, bookmark or copy the “Connecticut list” published by the Gluten Intolerance Group as part of its Gluten Free Restaurant Awareness Program. You’ll learn the location of Connecticut’s Outback Steakhouses, where you can be guaranteed an excellent meal served from a gluten free menu.

  This same list includes Elizabeth’s in Rocky Hill (860-257-3511) and Frascati Restaurant and Pizza  in Stamford (203-353-8900). Frascati’s has a website, but does not mention  anything about being “gluten free”.

Aleia’s Restaurant and Lounge in Old Saybrook (860-399-8144) posts their gluten free menu on-line. Their bakery offers a variety of celiac friendly goodies.

  Carrabba’s Italian Grill, a subdivision of the Outback Steakhouse, offers a downloadable gluten free menu for its restaurant in Manchester (860-643-4100).  The Bugaboo Creek Steakhouse (860-644-6100) also serves Manchester and provides a gluten free menu.

Romano’s Macaroni Grill provides a gluten free menu that is reviewed and updated monthly. They offer restaurants in Manchester (860-648-8819) and West Hartford (860-233-7605). To see the gluten free menu, go to the indicated page and scroll down to the bottom and click on the words "Allergen Information".

  If you enjoy The Texas Roadhouse as much as I do, you’re in for a good time in Hartford (860-953-1311), Manchester (860-645-7427), or Westhaven (203-937-6227). I’ll probably try all three. Click here for their gluten free menu.

I imagine you will be visiting other states during your New England adventure. You might want to check out my articles on gluten free restaurants in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island. I have also posted articles on "Gluten Free Restaurants in New England" and "Exploring Gluten Free Boston".

Enjoy Connecticut! I certainly intend to do so. E-mail me if you have any information that belongs in this article.

    There is also a really good pizza place in Connecticut that makes gluten-free pizza, breadsticks, calzones, pasta, and other things. It’s called Engine 6 and it’s located in Norwich, CT.

    i just recently was diagnosed with CD and im a teen so im worried about school lunches, holidays, friends parties, and going out to dinner. i don’t want to ruin it for my family and friends because i can’t eat the same things that they are eating. especially at birthday parties because i can’t have cake or pizza or anything and i don’t want them to feel embarassed but i don’t want to tell the whole world that i have the disease. A SUGGESTION: In almost always use the word “allergy” even though I know that this is not technically correct. We don’t need to be technically correct at a birthday party, and the people we are talking to are used to dealing with people who have allergies. This is particularly true if you are speaking to a waiter or anyone else whose first language is not English. They will understand the word “allergy” but will be confused or frightened by the word “disease”. Good luck. Keep in touch. Paul, “the gluten free guys”.
