Gluten-free flatbread-pizza crust in the Design District- Lemoni Pizza and Kitchen (Restaurants)

A few weeks ago it was my manager’s work “anniversary” and I had scheduled a lunch for our team to celebrate. It ended up being rescheduled twice, but yesterday the Outlook O-vite actually happened (although one team member was still missing). My manager suggested Lemoni Cafe or Lemoni Pizza and Kitchen. I was totally down […]

A fantasyland of gluten-free Italian food- Da Luciano (River Grove, Chicago, Outside Trips)

Every summer growing up my family would travel to Chicago to visit my grandparents and a lot of my mom’s family. Chicago always felt like a second home. More recently as an adult I’ve made similar trips back in the summer to see family and friends (summer because it’s too cold for me to visit from […]

A trip to Baltimore comes with a little trip to Naples complete with gluten-free pizza- Verde (Baltimore, Outside Trips)

After an excellent trip to the Boordy Vineyards for some wine tasting, my friend and I headed back to her apartment to relax for a little bit. On the agenda for that evening was dinner at a restaurant I had scoped out, Verde, and then hanging out with more Baltimore friends. I came across Verde […]

CLOSED: “Made In Italy” but made for Wynwood- Made In Italy Gourmet Market (Wynwood, Gluten-Free)

Made in Italy is now closed unfortuantely…  So with many, many, (many) posts to catch up on, my plan was to do some recent (and not so recent) out-of-town trips before doing any Miami posts. However that was before I visited Made In Italy for lunch this week. Once I was there I knew this […]

A little taste of Italy (and isolation from Miami) on the Upper Eastside- Ironside Pizza (Gluten-Free)

Given my love of food and the many years I’ve know that I have celiac (about 24), you can imagine that hearing or reading about a restaurant with special gluten-free options catches my attention pretty quickly and strongly. When it comes up in conversation or I overhear a mention, I’m actually pretty sure my reaction […]

Not gluten-free deep dish, but still a solid gluten-free pizza- Giordano’s Famous Stuffed Pizza (Chicago/The Loop)

NOTE: As you can see in the comments below, the sauce at Giordano’s is apparently not gluten-free. I would call ahead and double check if you are celiac/super sensitive (if they think gluten-free crust is worth having, hopefully they’ll provide a gluten-free sauce alternative ASAP). I do not remember having a reaction luckily. Not sure […]
