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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Good restaurants listings.
Thank you. Anything for the South Shore?
Good question.. 110 grill, Legal Seafood, Not Your Average Joes, IDGY’s, KKaties Burger Bar- These are ones that have GF options, that you can customize fairly well. You’d also do pretty well at seafood/steak restaurants that you can get seafood/steaks with veggies.
