As one of the most health-obsessed cities in the country, it makes sense that Denver has a plethora of restaurants serving gluten free options on their menus. And while the city has a couple of dining spots that cater exclusively to those who don't eat grain, most restaurants offer enough gluten-free menu options to allow those avoiding wheat, barley or rye to eat without restriction alongside dining partners that consider grain a staple at every meal.
If you have celiac disease or a serious allergy to gluten there are restaurants that focus on GF dishes and avoiding cross-contamination. These include restaurants like Panzano, where the chef took to eliminating gluten from her own diet after her brother was diagnosed with celiac disease, and despite the fact that the restaurant focuses on Italian fare, serves a gluten-free menu for each meal and even does an amazing GF focaccia. Other restaurants that take gluten-free dining seriously are Root Down, which clear marks its GF options and goes out of the way to avoid cross-contamination; Snooze, one of Denver's most popular breakfast joints, which features gluten-free English muffins for its signature Eggs Benedict as well as grain-free pancakes; and Hops & Pie, which features gluten-free pizza crust and even beer.
Here we present 10 favorite gluten-free menu's in Denver, and we've made sure to include some cross-over restaurants like Range, Linger and Vesta Dipping Grill, to indulge parties that want multiple choices.
