ISO WeHo area (or closeby) restaurant to take friend who can't eat dairy or wheat

I eat everything, but my friend has allergies to wheat and dairy. There will be 6 of us on a Saturday night at the last minute so nowhere too trendy or spendy. Food type is unimportant, but it should be somewhere w/an interesting wine list or low corkage. Ideally also somewhere for adventurous and more traditional eaters as well. Thanks!

    1. I don't think M Cafe would be a very pleasant place to dine with six people and wine -- I love the food but it's cramped and busy, really just a place for a quick bite.
      Most places can accomodate these restrictions (although Italian is hard), so maybe Chameau, Pastis or Buddha's Belly?

      1. In Weho, the new wine bar Bin 8945, its addy on Santa Monica Blvd., might do what you want. Some of each represented on the menu, yet many other options so it should be easily lived with.
        Also, one of the finest wines by the glass or bottle programs this wino has seen open in LA in a long time.
        Also, do a search on this board for restaurant postings within the last month, and you might find it what you are looking for. Just east of the starbux at the corner of Robertson.

        1. Thai or Indian food should give good eats for everyone, both cuisines don't rely on wheat or dairy. In WeHo, maybe Akbar which has a good wine list(haven't been to this location but love the one in MDR) or the rock and roll atmosphere of Thai food at Toi. I don't know if TOI serves wine. Probably not.

          1. Not the most festive option, but certainly Real Food Daily on La Cienega (which is a vegan place) has a number of wheat-free options. Dosen't really have an extensive wine list, but I do believe there are a few organic options for wine. When I'm feeling like having a tasty vegetarian meal, this place always scratches that itch, plus my meat loving hubby also enjoys it.
