Many people have been asking me about Back Bay/Newbury Street restaurants that accommodate gluten-free diners. Many of the Newbury Street restaurants are on the nicer side, and are easily able to edit meal ingredients. Also, Boston, like NYC, is a city that is very aware of gluten intolerances and other allergies, and every single restaurant is mandated by regulation to have a sign in its window saying “before you order, please let us know if you have any allergies.” In addition to this sign, restaurant workers have been required to complete training in regards to allergens. All of this being said, you MUST tell your waiter or waitress about your gluten intolerance…do not expect to go to any restaurant and look at the menu and think that you can decipher on your own what is safe and what is not. Below are my recommendations:
  • On Newbury Street
  • *The Otherside CafĂ© (gluten-free menu)
  • *Stephanie’s on Newbury
  • *Sonsie
  • Tapeo
  • Capital Grille (pricey)
  • Papa Razzi (chain restaurant, gluten-free menu)

There are also restaurants on Boylston Street...

  • On Boylston Street
  • Cactus Club
  • *Sel de la Terre
  • Atlantic Fish Co. (pricey)
  • Top of the Hub (pricey)
  • Uno Chicago Grill (chain, gluten-free menu)
  • *Turner Fisheries (gluten-free menu, inside of the Copley mall)
  • Legal Sea Foods (chain, gluten-free menu, inside of Prudential Center)
  • Wagamama (chain, gluten-free denoted on regular menu, inside of Prudential Center)
  • P.F. Chang’s (chain, gluten-free menu, inside of Prudential Center)

All of the above restaurants are restaurants that I have actually eaten at, but there are some additional restaurants that I have heard about with g-free options that are in the Back Bay/Newbury Street area listed below:

  • Maggiano’s Little Italy (g-free menu)
  • The Melting Pot (g-free menu)
  • Cafeteria Boston
  • Davio’s (g-free menu)
  • Globe Bar and Cafe
  • Vlora

Lastly, I’d like to point out that restaurants with asterisks (*) next to them are my favorite restaurants. Happy eating!
