Food allergies no match for the 10 Best restaurants with gluten free menus

As more people look to fill their diet with gluten-free options that don't skimp on flavor or texture, many food establishments in Nashville have taken note, not only offering gluten-free versions of their regular menu, but adding the option to make most regular dishes GF as well. The venerable Kalamata's has been doing this for years, thanks to the naturally gluten-free nature of many Mediterranean dishes. But spots you would never suspect of being tolerant of food allergies are surprising diners all over the city. Devotees of Burger Up's juicy burgers no longer have to opt for going bun-free to enjoy since they now offer the option to choose a GF bun. Same with the sandwiches at Jason's Deli. Of course, A Matter Of Taste has devoted their whole menu to being GF, and fans are flocking to their many options that don't sacrifice flavor or texture, including their pastrami and melted Swiss with Dijon mustard or their rotating supply of gooey cookies. Even carb lovers can get what they crave at Amerigo with their designated GF menu. All that said, there has never been a better time to have a gluten allergy in Nashville, and the options get better all the time.
