Steering clear of gluten doesn’t mean needing to miss out on your favorite foods or restaurants. Many restaurants in the city offer gluten-free menu items or GF modifications. Here are 6 restaurants we love that offer gluten-free and allergy-friendly options.
One of our favorite downtown happy hour spots is also a great option for those looking to steer clear of gluten. City Works has a separate gluten-free menu so you won’t find yourself with limited options. The menu ranges from staples like the City Works Burger and a chopped salad to creative options like the Cauliflower Steak.
Senyai Thai Kitchen
Senyai is one of our favorite Shadyside restaurants, and their menu is clearly marked with spice levels, vegan options, and gluten considerations. Some menu items like the pad thai and mango salad are gluten-free, while others like the crab fried rice can be made gluten-free. Senyai is currently open daily for take out.
honeygrow is another great option with a clearly marked menu. The spicy garlic and red coconut curry sauces are gluten-free. A personal favorite is the red coconut curry with rice noodles, tofu, pineapples, jalapenos, carrots, and scallions. honeygrow’s greek salad and cobb salad are also gluten-free.
