We have reasonably good control over what we eat at home. When we are dining in restaurants we have less control, and the consequences of being glutened are often more severe. An ‘accident’ can wreck a vacation, spoil an important date, or derail a business opportunity.
The articles below are not full-fledged restaurant reviews but they do read and evaluate actual restaurant menus. Each article has three parts. (1) A link to the restaurant and perhaps a few comments about it. (2) A copy of the comments designed to convince you (or at least suggest to you) that restaurant is gluten friendly, and (3) my reaction to those comments. Obviously, the final decision rests with you.
There are three possible uses for these articles. (1) They may help you choose (or reject) a specific restaurant. (2) They may provide practice in reading and interpreting gluten free menus. (3) They may be used as models to help you write an effective gluten free menu.
I have written reviews for the restaurants listed in blue below. The restaurants printed in black are known to have gluten menus and will eventually be reviewed. In the mean time, you may wish to ‘google’ them for more information.
