    I have not been diagnosed very long so this hasn't been as easy time for me. For thanksgiving this year I just didn't feel up to cooking so my fiancé and I went to seasons 52 to dinner. I have read a lot about my condition and know that some restaurants leave a lot to be desired when it comes to eating GF so this was our first time venturing out since my diagnosis. First of all we were immediately pleased. The atmosphere was splendid. The wait staff friendly and actually knowledgeable about GF! I couldn't believe it. Prior to retrieving the GF menu (which was NOT a xeroxed sheet of paper but a smaller, lovely replica of the regular menu) our server explained that not only could would they accommodate a GF diet but many others including vegetarian, vegan, sodium restricted, etc. From what I've been reading up on the food that is offered as GF can sometimes also be taste-free but my trout dinner was SO good it was exactly what I would have eaten prior to my diagnosis. The gala apple slaw, carrots and mashed potatoes were SO good I couldn't believe I was at a restaurant and eating GF and not feeling deprived. I left the restaurant feeling more hopeful than I had in a very long time. Sorry for going on and on like that!
