Allergy-Friendly Restaurants

Places in the DC area that I've found to have foods I can eat and are helpful about it.


I did well here as long as I stayed away from fried foods. Can be slow to check when they are busy, but they are willing.


Great little deli and store. I like the hummus sandwich and they'll make them on whichever bread you aren't allergic to! The owner and all the staff are very helpful.


French fries are fried in olive oil. worth the trip just for the fries. Burgers can come in a lettuce wrap or just alone.


Nice family-style place. Very helpful. Great food. Get mashed potatoes instead of pasta.


Friendly and helpful, but not a lot of options without wheat. Great pizza for your family though. They may be to sub your own bread though. Would be worth calling ahead.


Unlike other brewhouses, they don't marinate all their food in the beer. Waitstaff take questions seriously and are eager to help you find something. Manager has come out to assist too. My go to appetizer: three-cheese crab dip (housemade chips, my husband eats the bread or they'll bring you all chips). My go to dinner: burger (no bun) with carmelized onions or hawaiian, fries.


Great food and helpful staff. One of the owners/chef came to my table to discuss my allergy list with me. My go to meal is the pan-seared grouper (no flour) with mashed potatoes and veggie of the day.


Very helpful about checking items. Tapas menu offers lots of options. It can be loud and busy, so you may want to try during off hours on your first visit. My faves: Jamon Serrano, Gambas al Ajillo, Setas al Ajillo.


I made the reservation online and included all my allergies. When we were seated, the host had my list already printed out and the waiter worked out some options for me. And nothing in the cotton candy but sugar and flavoring!


It's been a while since I've been here, so I can't remember what I had. With all my allergies, it was hard to find something. The waitstaff was very willing to check menu items though. The food is always good though. Would at least be worth calling ahead.
