About Us
Dining away from home can be a challenge for those managing food allergies and intolerances or special dietary needs. As a registered dietitian, as well as a mother of children with food allergies, I am always on the lookout for a safe place to eat. This site came about due to the necessity of finding restaurants receptive to serving customers with food allergies and special dietary concerns. Our goal is to increase the awareness within the restaurant community so that we may once again experience the freedom to dine away from home.

Delicious Gluten Free Pizza on Cape Cod!

BZ’s Mexican Pizzeria, located in Dennisport on Cape Cod, MA, serves delicious gluten-free pizza in a conveniently located pizzeria with an old-time feel. The pizza dough is made from tapoica starch and rice flour and is dairy and corn-free but contains egg whites and almond flour.  It is supplied through a local baker(Good Juju Bakery). Servers and staff are well trained regarding cross contamination and a separate area of the kitchen is dedicated to preparing the pizza.

Wow! Gluten free fried clams, chowder and more…

Clams,scallops & fries

  Woodman’s of Essex  is a well loved  establishment that has been frying up clams since 1914  and most of their menu just happens to be gluten-free!  There are many choices and the portions are generous.  Fried clams, scallops, haddock, chicken fingers, clam chowder and fries are a few of the gluten-free menu choices available. 

Check out their gluten-free menu for the full listing.  All breaded items are  prepared with ground corn meal, no other flour is used. But note, the food is dipped in evaporated milk before being coated.  Be sure to tell the cashier that your order is gluten-free so they can use clean utensils. 

 It is a casual  fun place to visit in any season.  In warmer months diners can sit outside on picnic  benches over looking the Essex River.  For many, it just wouldn’t be summer without a trip to Woodman’s.

Update:  Woodman’s Restaurant has opened another location in Litchfield, NH. They can be found in the Mel’s Funway Complex and have the same delicious gluten-free items and, I’m told, when not busy they will make you gluten-free onion rings!

An allergen friendly restaurant with entertainment!

The Nimrod Restaurant & Jazz Lounge  is located in Falmouth, Massachusetts on beautiful Cape Cod.  Included on their dinner menu is a clearly marked gluten free section.  There are numerous choices for appetizers, entrees and desserts. They even offer gluten-free rolls!   There are some gluten-free choices for lunch as well.  After contacting Chef Jim Murry, I  was told that they can accomodate most food intolerances, especially if notified in advance. They never use trans fats or MSG and very rarely use corn oil.   Read the rest of this entry »
