    I don't eat meat or dairy, so the only thing I can eat here is French fries (and those aren't guaranteed gluten-free). It's an awesome bar but vegetarians who avoid gluten should eat before they go.

    Solid gluten-free options and a well-labeled menu. I'd love to see more gluten-free beers available, but Meridian Pint is one of my favorite places to eat out in DC. I'm both gluten-free and vegan, and it's nice to have options on a restaurant menu.

  • Lost City Diner

    I was very underwhelmed by Lost City. They advertise themselves as vegan-friendly, and there are several menu items that are vegan or can be made vegan. The menu contains no information about wheat or gluten, and when I asked my waiter if there were any items that could be made both gluten-free and vegan he responded, "That's really a tough one. We have items that are vegan, but once you go gluten-free and vegan, that's really limiting." Thanks for pointing that out, dude. Two stars because he was willing to ask about specific menu items for me, but I wouldn't recommend it for anyone looking to eat both gluten-free and vegan.

    I just learned that Roti has gluten-free pita available - they also have a listing of all their gf menu items available online. I tried the pita yesterday; the flavor and texture was good, and they have a separate area for storing and heating them (separate from the regular pita). There is a $2 charge (boo) but I am hoping once they see there's demand for the gf option, that will go away.

    Attended a meeting today that was catered by Whole Foods. Overall, I was underwhelmed - their food was over-seasoned and just sort of odd. For example: Their quinoa salad (GF, vegan) had apples, carrots and dried cranberries but was totally overwhelmed w black pepper. Just kind of weird.

  • Ella's Wood Fired Pizza

    3 starsOctober 19, 2013

    610 9th Street Northwest, Washington, DC 20004

    They'll make any pizza on a gf crust, which is pretty thin and crackery. I don't know if the crust is vegan (I've never asked, but I'm lactose intolerant and I've never reacted to it). They're quick enough that you can get in & out in an hour lunch break but get pretty crowded for dinner, especially when the Caps are at home. Expect to wait a bit for a table.

    201 Corte Madera Town Center, Corte Madera, CA 94925

    Not a great spot if you're gf and vegetarian or vegan (the veggie burger isn't gluten-free). I had fries and roasted veggies, which were tasty, but not very exciting.

  • Saturn Cafe

    So many options! Saturn is a vegetarian cafe with a lot of delicious diner-style menu items. I am both gf and vegan and I had a fantastic meal there. Try the potato tacos!

  • Planet Fresh Gourmet Burritos

    I loved Planet Fresh as a vegan college student in the early 2000s, and I was really excited to come back to it last week and learn that their food is just as good and all of their burritos are available gf (basically on a plate instead of in a tortilla).
