Gluten Free Restaurants/Bakeries/Specialty Shops

111 Chop House – Worcester, MA

My dad and step mom took Bryan and I here around Christmas, and this has to be one of the best restaurants I’ve been to in a long time.  I’ve been there once or twice before but that was pre-gluten free.  When I went to hand the waitress my Triumph Dining Card she says “Oh, we have a gluten-free menu, I’ll be right back”.  Let me tell you, she wasn’t kidding…it was a FULL menu.  This was the best selection of gluten-free items ever! If you are living or visiting around the Worcester area, check them out.

5 Guys Burgers – Only their buns contain gluten!!  See website for locations

On their menu it says everything but the buns are gluten free…they were great, no cross contamination issues what so ever.

99 Restaurants – See website for locations

A and J Bakery – Cranston, RI – Gluten Free and Nut Free

Aliperti’s Restaurant – Clark, NJ

Bryan and I have been here twice.  They have a small little menu of gluten-free options including some tasty desserts, and they were great.  I first had the Grilled Chicken Parmigiana and the second time was Risotto Pescatore. YUMMM

Asa Sushi – Chestnut Street, San Francisco – does have a gluten-free menu, however they offer gluten-free soy sauce!

When Bryan and I did our little weekend get away in San Francisco we found this great little sushi restaurant.  They don’t have a gluten-free menu but plenty of options for gluten-free eaters and even offered us gluten-free soy sauce!

Austin Grill -DC, MD, VA

Bryan and I came across Austin Grill while we were in DC.  The first place I saw it was my Triumph Dining Restaurant Guide and we thought we would give it a shot.  The gluten-free steak tacos were amazing!  We both loved them.  We enjoyed the food and the friendly staff so much we went back the next day for lunch.  Their salsa is out of this world.  You can read my review HERE.

Babycakes – NYC, LA

I heart BabyCakes NYC!!!  They had so many great options to choose from, I ended up buying about eight cupcakes ha ha.  Can’t wait to go back.

Boston Market – See website for locations

The Boyton – Worcester, MA

Gluten Free Pizza – Pretty dang tasty and not going to cost you an arm and a leg!

Brick Alley Pub and Restaurant – Newport, RI

Carrabba’s Italian Grill – see website for locations

Charlie Brown’s – NY, NJ and PA – See website for locations

We went here on NYE and had great experiences.  The wait staff was extremely helpful.  They even checked all the dressings for me and told me what in the salad bar was gluten-free.  Granted you can have some cross contamination issues with a salad bar but I didn’t have any problems.

Chipotle – See website for locations

Yummm.  My favorite thing there used to be the burrito bowls but now I have to say its the veggi crunchy tacos!

Cold Stone - See website for locations

Elephant Walk – Boston, MA

EvaRuth’s Wheat Free-Gluten Free Bakery – Middletown, RI

Kara’s Cupcakes – San Francisco

Again, I heart this place.  They started with using Erin from BabyCakes recipe and then adapted it to make it their own.  Fantastic cupcakes and a decent selection of gluten-free and non gluten-free items.

Leo’s Ristorante – Bristol, RI

Lilli and Loo – NYC

Nancy Chang’s - Worcester, MA

Mariposa Baking Company – Oakland and San Francisco

I have both ordered online from them and gone up to their store and kiosk.  I think their ravioli are some of the best I have ever had.  Very tasty.  Their bread is fantastic!!

Olive Garden – Call to see if a gluten-free menu is available at your location

Outback Steakhouse – See website for locations

When visiting family and friends this has always been a good option.  I have never run in to any problems eating here.  They give you a menu that is pretty much the real menu and says what not to have.

Panera Bread – see website for locations

Who doesn’t love Panera?!  Great salad and soup options including their salad dressings!

P.F. Chang’s – See website for locations

They have just expanded their gluten-free menu and its awesome.  I love eating there.  It started with just a handful of options but now it has almost tripped in size.

Risotteria – NYC

Pretty much every time we’ve gone to NYC we’ve eaten here.  I really should try to expand my gluten-free horizons but this place is awesome.  It’s a bit tiny and you some times have to wait about 30 minutes for a table but its worth it.  They have gluten-free pizza, panini’s, salads and risotto.  All of which are really really good.  I think my favorite thing there are the free bread sticks you get when you sit down.  Out of this world (and you can buy the mix to make at home!!)

San Francisco Soup Company – San Francisco

Sole Propreitor – Worcester, MA

They even offer gluten-free soy sauce!

TGIF – See website for locations

No Gluten Free menu online, however they do have them in the restaurants, just ask your hostess for one when you are seated.

Uno Chicago Grill – See website for locations

Via – Italian Table – Worcester, MA

Via 45 – Red Bank, NJ
