Gluten-Free Dining in Atlanta

May is National Celiac Awareness Month. While the restaurant industry has taken leaps and bounds to accommodate gluten-free diets over the past few years, dining out can still be a hassle. Here we team up with Jennifer Harris of the Gluten Free go-to Guide to get tips on how to dine out gluten-free in Atlanta. Harris has visited the kitchens of countless restaurants and consulted with chefs to build a resource guide for those who, like herself, have Celiac Disease. Also check out six ways to eat gourmet gluten-free in Atlanta.

What is the hardest food to find gluten-free?

  • Comfort foods, typically fried like chicken or sauces that use flour like gravy.
  • A burger on a bun and fries that I can eat together at the same restaurant.
  • Breakfast is by far the hardest meal to find options.
  • Desserts that aren’t just crème bruleé or ice cream.
