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.

This site is to be used as a reliable guide. It does not guarantee a safe dining experience. Chefs, menus and policies change regularly. Verify all information for yourself.

SweetGreen comes to Boston!

Hurray! Another restaurant with healthy options!  Recently opened on Boylston Street, SweetGreen, a “fast-casual” restaurant, offers salads, yogurt and juice drinks.  A large portion of the menu is gluten-free and/or vegan.

The salads that are gluten-free include the Spicy Sabzi which is also vegan (organic baby spinach + shredded kale with spicy quinoa, spicy broccoli, carrots, raw beets, basil, sprouts and roasted tofu; topped with a carrot chili vinaigrette and a squeeze of sriracha), Misoba, also vegan,( organic mesclun with soba noodles, avocado, raw corn, carrots, raw seeds and cilantro; topped with a miso sesame ginger vinaigrette and a squeeze of sriracha, the Kale Caesar (shredded kale + chopped romaine with roasted chicken, shaved parmesan, grape tomatoes and parmesan crisp; topped with a caesar dressing and a fresh lime squeeze), the Santorini (chopped romaine with citrus shrimp, feta, red grapes and chickpeas; topped with a cucumber basil yogurt dressing and a fresh lemon squeeze) and the District Cobb ( shredded kale + chopped romaine with roasted chicken, goat cheese, hard boiled egg, bacon, raw corn, avocado and grape tomatoes; topped with an agave dijon vinaigrette).

The Guacamole Greens salad is made with tortilla chips that share a conveyor belt with pita chips so there is a risk of cross-contamination.  This salad contains organic mesclun with roasted chicken, avocado, grape tomatoes, red onion and crushed tortilla chips; topped with a lime cilantro jalapeno vinaigrette and a fresh lime squeeze.

“Make Your Own” salad is also an option with many gluten-free topping choices like quinoa and baked falafel. All of the salad dressings are house-made and gluten-free!  In addition, the Carrot Chili Vinaigrette, Pesto Vinaigrette, Lemon Tahini, Miso Ginger Sesame and the Lime Cilantro Jalapeno dressings are vegan as well.

Avoid the wraps since they are not gluten-free and also the Warm Bowls because the quinoa is pre-mixed with farro.

The organic, raw, cold-pressed juices are available in five different fruit/vegetable combinations.

Since local, seasonal produce is featured, you will find  seasonal specials in regards to the soups, salads and even the drinks.

Top off your healthy meal with a dessert of fat-free, organic, frozen Stonyfield yogurt!  Toppings include:

organic agave
toasted coconut
local honey
flax seeds
chocolate chips
candied pecans
The staff is happy to look up any ingredient for you if you have questions. They also update their ingredient & nutrition info fairly regularly.
