Melvyn's in Palm Springs located at 200 West Ramon Rd. We walk in to this iconic old haunt in Palm Springs and ask the host if they offer a gluten free menu. He rudely replies, "Let me get right to the point, we don't do gluten free, vegetarian or any other special diets" If in the desert go to these restaurants : GLUTEN FREE FRIENDLY: Sammys on El Paseo Mama Ginas on El Paseo Spencer's in Palm Springs Ruth Chris in Palm Desert Lavender in LaQuinta Copleys in Palm Springs Mitch's on El Paseo Daily Grill on El Paseo Puck's Pizza on El Paseo Morgan's in LaQuinta
If there was a rating 1-100 for romantic settings, Lavender would get 100 points. This resturant not only has the ambiance along with fantastic service and attention to detail, the food is over the top great. When visiting the Desert please don't miss this one. Ask for patio seating.
located in LaQuinta California (just 25-30 mins from Palm Springs)
Just got word that California Pizza Kitchen is serving G/F at all their big full service locations (not airports or small take out concepts)...They also created a special menu of various G/F items. Lori is very careful when it comes to any big chain that also is big in the pasta business...but we will give it a try. Nice to see another big chain recognizing the G/F community.
It is always a treat to find a PF Chang in Nevada, California, Arizona, Oregon...many other states that feature their gluten free menu. If you have been reading some of these posts, you know that my wife must be 100% G/F. I think the gluten free dishes at Changs are better than the regular in-line menu! When ordering make sure you are clear that the dishes must be gluten free as many of them are also featured on the regular menu. When the dish arrives pay close attention to the shape. All gluten free items are served on a round plate with their logo displayed. For take out orders ALWAYS double check when pick up that it is gluten free. Stickers should be attached to the boxes. P.F. Chang have been a national leader in supporting customers who must be gluten free. Thank You P.F. Chang!
This site is dedicated to people who have Celiac. When my wife, Lori was diagnosed many years ago it was a struggle traveling. Today there are wonderful choices to select from. We want you to be aware of the great destinations available. We have come a long way!
