Enjoy Gluten-Free Food at These Atlanta Restaurants

Be it a gluten allergy, a prognosis of Celiac disease or Crohn’s disease, or simply a personal dietary decision, following a gluten-free diet and eating out in Atlanta need not be mutually exclusive. This food-rich city with its ever-changing restaurant lineup is attuned not only to forward-thinking cooking techniques and ingredients, but also tends to be mindful to diners with a limited range of food options–this extends to people with food allergies, vegetarians, vegans and others adhering to dietary restrictions.

Though there are chefs that will scoff at the idea of altering their menus to accommodate specific dietary requirements, more and more local restaurants have either added on gluten-specific menu items or are willing to adapt an entree or two accordingly. This inclusive dining environment extends not just to high-end restaurants and restaurant chains, but to smaller lunch spots and even bakeries in neighborhoods all over the city.

A sensitivity to gluten, then, needn’t limit your exposure to Atlanta's restaurant scene. In fact, it can be a jumping off point for discovering new restaurants and sampling some delicious, thoughtfully prepared dishes by some of the city’s best chefs. Here, we’ve gathered a few restaurants with gluten-free options on their menus.
