In this episode, we are going to dive into tools you can use to find amazing gluten-free friendly and dedicated gluten-free restaurants to eat at on New Year’s Eve. If you're new to the gluten-free scene or you've been gluten-free for a while, you can still have a hard time finding a great restaurant. Whether you are a foodie or not, looking for a restaurant at home or on vacation, getting a good gluten-free meal at a nice restaurant can be daunting.


There are several tools you can use when you want to find a great restaurant for you and your family and friends! Filter for the price, type of food and ambiance. Learn how to cross-check your choice of restaurant, find out the difference between a gluten-free friendly restaurant and a dedicated gluten-free restaurant. Additionally, listen in to find out which three questions to ask when calling a restaurant to find out if they are safe for celiacs.



One of the resources I love to use is OpenTable. OpenTable is a reservation site and I use this resource because it’s easy to filter and find restaurants and reserve online instantly. You can use OpenTable's online website or their mobile app to book a table. Your account setup is free. Find restaurants and make reservations through OpenTable and receive points when you dine at that restaurant using a reservation from OpenTable. When you reach a certain level of points you will receive rewards through OpenTable.


Find Me Gluten Free App

Find Me Gluten Free is available online and as a mobile app. Look for gluten-free friendly, dedicated gluten-free restaurants, places to eat with dedicated fryers. Find different gluten-free features and offerings such as gluten-free bread, gluten-free desserts, late-night, a local chain, vegan-friendly, vegetarian-friendly.


100% Gluten Free App

Carrie from For Gluten Sake has celiac disease and has created an app that features restaurants that are dedicated gluten-free. All restaurants on her app do not have gluten on the premises. This list is smaller than Find Me Gluten Free app, however; these restaurants are safer since they don’t have gluten on site. She has the largest list of 100% gluten-free spots around the world on her app.


Gluten-Free Philly

Find great eats in Philadelphia and the surrounding area with Michael’s Gluten-Free Philly app. In addition to his app, you can search online for the latest and greatest gluten-free restaurants in Philadelphia. 


Trip Advisor

Another way you can 'Find' restaurants is at Tripadvisor. Setup a free account and use this resource to find restaurants in your neighborhood or when you are traveling. Usually, we think of Tripadvisor only when we're traveling. I also like to find fun things to do when I'm going on vacation or at home. Look up restaurants in the town you are eating in and browse by food, community picks, gluten-free and vegan.


The Celiac Scene (Canada)

If you are vacationing or live in Victoria, the surrounding area around Victoria, Vancouver or the islands of Canada, you must check out The Celiac Scene. Ellen Baynes started the gluten-free restaurant scene in Victoria and she maintains a list of restaurants that are safe to eat at if you are celiac.
