Gluten Free and Gorgeous


As a Washingtonian, I'm actually pretty shocked by how few restaurants are gluten-free-friendly.  Here's a list of my faves:

Agora-- Their menu denotes gluten free, vegetarian and vegan options

Baked & Wired-- The BEST GF blondie in town, this shop takes the cake when you need something sweet! They also have a chocolate cupcake with strawberry frosting that's not too shabby either :)

Bangkok Joe's--What a great find! They can make pretty much everything gluten-free

Bodega--Spanish-style tapas in Georgetown with a chef who knows what "gluten free" actually means

Brasserie Beck-- This hip restaurant with a seasonal menu can give you a separate GF menu, with lots of options beyond a house salad

Chopt-- Though I'm more partial to Sweetgreen, Chopt makes all sorts of salads and denote which dressings are free of wheat and gluten. Though I've never noticed this, they'll change gloves and clean utensils if you ask them to!

Clyde's--DC's iconic restaurant makes great food, a lot of which can be made g-free

Ella's Pizza- Located downtown, I haven't tried Ella's yet but I can't wait to go!

Firefly- Might actually rival Open City for best brunch! They have a g-free menu, $2 mimosas and the best truffle fries in town!

Georgetown Cupcakes-- It doesn't compare to Baked & Wired (see above), but they make a gluten-free chocolate cupcake.  A plus? Their staff are trained to change their gloves to handle their GF merchandise.

Good Stuff Eatery--Get it bunless! And always go for a Mini Moo shake :)

Macaroon Bee-- A new spot in Georgetown on Wisconsin Ave, this little storefront has all sorts of french-style macaroons with unique flavors like Blood Orange or Salted Caramel.

Meridian Pint-- Columbia Heights' hidden gem, an array of their menu items are gluten-free, including an impressive list of hard ciders

Open City--Best brunch in town with a lunch menu including g-free pizza!

Oyamel-- One of Jose Andres' many DC hotspots, Oyamel brings you authentic Mexican with a twist

PF Changs-- Sometimes a girl just wants some Chinese food, and this place can make that happen! The back of their menu is all gluten free

Rosemary's Thyme-- Besides the great name, this spot can make many dishes g-free

Scion-- A little bistro right off Dupont Circle, Scion denotes their dishes that can be made gluten-free with an easy "gf"

Sticky Fingers--gluten-free pancakes, cookies and cupcakes-all vegan!

Sprinkles -- They only make a gluten-free chocolate cupcake, but its pretty good!

Sweetgreen-- the place that makes salads interesting, just check the dressing ingredients list 

Tackle Box--Georgetown's favorite grills some of their fish and has great sides like grilled zucchini or corn on the cob.  A plus? Great margaritas!

Ted's Bulletin--Just ask what's g-free and they'll be happy to tell you.  I recommend the Corned Beef Hash and the Grasshopper milkshake

Tryst--Open City's sister coffee shop, this place make g-free muffins

Zaytinya-- Great Greek tapas in Chinatown.  They actually get Celiac's, so their g-free menu steers clear from meats fried or cooked on the same surface as breads.
