Gluten Free Friendly Lunch in New Haven?

debvil Nov 13, 2013 11:57 AM

Taking my soon to be sister in law out to lunch this weekend but require a Gluten free friendly place in New Haven. Would prefer something other than Claire's Cornercopia....

Suggestions are welcome! Willing to go as far south as Milford or as far north as North Haven... thanks in advance.

    There's always the old standby of Claire's...plenty of gluten-free dishes!

        Stone Hearth in the Westville section of New Haven has several gluten-free menu items.

          I don't know the actual menu at Bentara, but one thing to remember for GF eaters is that soy sauce & products are not GF. If the person only has an intolerance, the amounts can be small enough to avoid problems, but someone with celiac needs to be careful. Some restaurants have wheat-free tamari on-hand for these instances now. I have found that a phone call ahead of time to check can save trouble.

            I think Bentara can accommodate gluten free.
            Maybe one of the soups with rice noodles.
            Chicken Rendang I think is also gluten free.
