I have celiac and there are plenty of great places you can eat in Dallas that have gluten free. I had a great experience at Fearings. I told them ahead of time and they even made me homemade chips and salsa instead of the bread basket. I felt so special. I love Fireside Pies. They have a great gluten free crust and can do any of their pizzas gluten free. I second Kozy Kitchen. Awesome gluten free desserts!
This website is also a great resource. http://dfwceliac.org/html/restaurants...
Hope this helps! Enjoy the great gluten free food that Dallas has to offer.
I thought you said 'celeriac', and thought how delicious.
I am far from a vegetarian, much less a lacto-vegetarian, but I love Kalachandji's. You will find all items containing containing wheat clearly listed. Also, for those lactose intolerant, they list dairy as well. Pretty cool experience.
Last time I was there I believe only the supplied bread contained any gluten.
Bliss Raw Bar, on Greenville near Park Lane, is gluten free as well as vegan and raw. It's not that close to you, but I (an avid eater of meat and cooked food) was surprised at how delicious the Rawsagne tasted! It's also a bit pricey, but interesting worth checking out. There are a few reviews available online.
My dad is celiac, so when he visits, this is a topic always close to me. Fortunately, over the years, *most* mid-range+ restaurants have become knowledgeable and quite accommodating to gluten-free needs, particularly if you call in advance -- even some of the higher end chains.
That said, a couple of specific restaurants that cater to gluten-free needs are:
More generically, since most Asian restaurants utilize rice as the primary starch and Mexican restaurants use corn/masa as the primary starch - I would imagine you'll have no issues finding good food to meet your needs in the downtown area.
Also, there are a number of high end restaurants located in the area that would certainly have no problem with your dietary requirements - particularly with an advance call.
