Hi there,

Visiting San Francisco and East Bay this week and have celiac. Any great suggestions for gluten-free dining? Thanks!

      Minako is great if you like traditional Japanese - she can substitute tamari for any of her soy saucey dishes - I've been with a gluten intolerant friend. Cafe Gratitude (SF and Berkeley) is also a good spot. Many places are now very conscious so you shouldn't have a rough time unless you're in North Beach which caters to old skool Italian cuisine.

        Yes, check the links. But wanted to mention Mariposa Bakery in Oakland. Also have a kiosk at Ferry Building in SF. Great place.

            The Chron just had a report on this, and listed restaurants like Minako and Bacco that are accommodating to restricted diets.

            Look on SFgate.com
