Looking for somewhere to go with food sensitivities

I need a restuarant that would be accomodating to a huge list of food sensitivities. Anyone have suggestions? They are sensitivities - not allergies, no if it is in the same kitchen, not a big deal, but the following is the list of things to be avoided:
Gluten containing products
Soy and Soy byproducts
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Call now, wherever you're going and ask to speak to the manager/chef- you'd at least be giving them a heads up more than 15 minutes before you expect to be seated and eating..this way you can also see if the restaurant CAN accomodate the diet (if they can't you can still find another place), as opposed to getting there and expecting them to...
a friend of mine has a son with serious milk and wheat allergies. They eat at Il Fornelo alot - they have special wheat-free, gluten-free, milk free pizzas.
Portuguese churrasco- chicken and potatoes.
Greek restaurants- chicken souvlaki (on a stick) and maroulosalata- a Greek green salad that doesn't not have cheese, roasted potatoes, fasolakia, etc.
Lebanese restaurants like Tabule and Jerusalem- stick with the chicken, stuffed vine leaves, fried tomatoes, fried eggplant, babaganoush, mudjaddarah and stay away from the fattoush and tabule (which would contain gluten).
Kosher meat restaurants like Chicken Nest, Miami Grill or Bistro Grande won't have any dairy or shellfish in any of their food. Miami Grill and Bistro Grande have finfish as well as chicken on the menu.
South Indian restaurants like Saravanaa also might be an option. Or northern Indian restaurants if you stick with the rice, tandoor, channa and veg curries, and stay away from the naan, paneer and the creamy stuff.
