Restaurant Resources

Here are some resources and lists I have created for a Gluten Free lifestyle!

Since cutting out nightshades and going AIP, going out to eat has needed more than just a good Gluten Free menu, but having that is a start! I usually stick with salads when we go out. They are the easiest to customize and have less room for sneaky ingredients.

In terms of eating Paleo/AIP, I’ve found the best success with Seafood/Steak restaurants. They tend to have a plain grilled option for meat, then veggie options for sides. Easy peasy paleo, and AIP. I make sure everything is cooked in EVOO and they only season with salt and pepper. Yes, pepper is a reintro, but it doesn’t bother me.

Restaurants:

Massachusetts:
~Boston~
Legal Sea Food: They have a fantastic menu and the staff is very well trained and attentive. I have recently learned that their ‘gluten free’ coating for fried foods is a mixture of (safe) flours but does contain rice flour, FYI for the AIP people!
Chart house: Ok menu, a few seafood options, but more chicken and steak options.
Not Your Average Joes: Really good menu, great staff and good bread (not AIP friendly)
Joes American Bar and Grill: Good menu, although I had looked it up and came in wanting sweet potato fries, that I had read were gluten free. Came to learn, thankfully from the waitress, that they aren’t! I was sad.

~Framingham~
Papa Razzi: They had a pretty good menu. Lots of salad, pizza, pasta and entree’s. They have gluten free bread too! (not AIP)

British Beer Co.: Pretty good menu, I like all their salads. They also have gluten free pizza, which I haven’t tried yet, but at least it is an option.
Smashburger: This place is new, and I love it! It’s a chipotle type place, so it’s somewhat ‘fast food’ ish, but with salads and great burgers. I got a fantastic salad totally customized for me!
The Met Bar and Grill: Really good burger and salad menu. Very customizable and GF friendly. They even have sweet potato fries, score!

There is also a Legal Seafood and Joes American Bar and Grill in Framingham.

~Marlborough~
Allora: Their menu is somewhat small compared to their regular menu, but my favorite dish is on it (Mediterranean Salmon) so I don’t care! ANDDDD their flourless chocolate torte is THE BEST flourless dessert I have ever had. No joke.

~Wayland~

The Local: Fairly good menu. The Brussel sprouts with bacon are delish, and I usually get a Kale salad which probably gets my days folate requirement taken care of. It’s huge.

Maine:
~Ogunquit~
Clay Hill Farm: Ok menu, not huge, but fantastic food! Best scallops ever. Period.
Roost Cafe: Best menu I have ever seen. Only 3 things on the menu that were NOT GF. So tasty too!
Amore Cafe: Somewhat small menu, but Waffles. ‘Nuff said.
