Triumph Dining has just published the 5th edition of their book "The Essential Gluten-Free Restaurant Guide". I was very excited to get a copy of this newest edition. I have a copy of the 3rd edition which is full of notes, bookmarked pages, and dog-eared corners. Needless to say, I used the book a lot.
The thing I like about the Essential Gluten-Free Restaurant Guide is that they often list restaurants that you can't necessarily find on the internet. You might find this hard to believe, but not all restaurants have websites. Word of mouth and local support groups are a great way to find out about restaurants offering gluten-free meals, but this book puts it all in one place for all fifty states.
The 5th edition has over 6,500 restaurants listed! That’s over 1,500 more than in the previous, 4th Edition of our guide. Over 2,800 of the restaurants listed have gluten-free menus or gluten-free specialty items. (That means pizza, pasta, cupcakes, cookies, and more!) In addition, Triumph Dining has added over 40 chain menus, which means that there are now over 120 gluten-free lists and menus from chain restaurants across the country!
The symbols used in this guide are really easy to use. Here is a breakdown:
Star in circle: Gluten-free menu is available on site
Star: Gluten-free speciality items, such as bread, beer, pasta, etc., are available
100%: This is a 100% gluten-free establishment. YAY!
A book icon: This is a chain restaurant.
I am very excited to try some new places that I discovered in this 5th Edition Essential Gluten-Free Restaurant Guide in NY, CT, and wherever else the new year takes me. With the holidays right around the corner, I think this would be a great gift for the gluten-free person in your family.
