A growing number of today’s diners must avoid gluten — a protein found in wheat, barley and rye — due to celiac disease and other debilitating allergies. In response, the following restaurants have made a commitment to include gluten-free dishes on their menus.

The gluten-free Main Line crew can roll on down to Raw Can Roll Cafe, where the only thing better than the vibrant colors of the totally non-cooked menu items are the fresh tastes and textures. Desserts such as the raw banana brownie sundae are all celiac-friendly.
It’s all-things raw—and celiac-friendly—at the recently opened Jar Bar, with a pure menu of raw plates, salads, snacks, desserts, fresh juices and elixirs (like the strawberry-kale lemonade and the almond-banana drink with hemp seeds and vegan vanilla protein powder).
The menu at Cantina Feliz, a contemporary Mexican restaurant in Ft. Washington, is 99% gluten-free. All breading is plantains and nacho chips. All flour is rice flour. Chef Tim Spinner and his business partner, Brian Sirhal, are protégés of Jose Garces.
This American BYOB in the old train station in Ambler has many gluten-free menu items, including: North Atlantic salmon with balsamic reduction, house-smoked baby back ribs with a tangy BBQ sauce and spicy Texas slaw, and free-range chicken, pan seared with a rosemary caper sauce. Top it off with one of several gluten-free desserts.
Celiac sufferers won’t miss out on traditional favorites at Boston Style Pizza, home to an entire gluten-free menu that includes a fresh mozzarella appetizer and a healthy hummus platter. What’s more, classic pizza with homemade sauce and a special blend of Wisconsin cheeses is available on gluten-free crust.
The home-style Venezuelan cuisine at Sazon—just west of trendy Northern Liberties—satisfies vegetarians avoiding wheat with dishes like grilled tofu and mushrooms with brown rice and black beans. An entire gluten-free menu of various arepas (corn patties) delights vegans and vegetarians with toppings like scrambled egg, cheddar cheese, tofu or veggies.
Vegetarian Celiacs and their friends find what they’re looking for at Bliss, where chef Anthony Goodwin keeps an eye on the gluten. (He regularly caters functions held by the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness.) Popular items include the beet salad with goat cheese and the poached pear and candied walnut salad with bleu cheese and vanilla bean-pear dressing. (The menu changes based on the available ingredients, though the chef is very accommodating with gluten-intolerant dietary restrictions.)
