The Remedy Bar

Location: Vail, Colorado

“They do a great burger on a gluten-free bun, they don’t have a dedicated fryer, but they will bake fries for you. Had a delicious crème brûlée for dessert.”

The Hollywood Brown Derby

Location: Orlando, Florida

“Eating out at Disney is one of our favorite things to do, as Disney in our experience is so great with food allergies. The Brown Derby did not disappoint. They had a separate allergy menu with clearly detailed items and what was sage for specific food allergies. In addition chef was willing to come out to talk to us about protocols. Their bakery was a shared space so we went with crème brûlée since we felt this was the safest option for a nut allergy. Food and service was delicious. A bit on the pricey side but worth it.”

Le Colonial Chicago

Location: Chicago, Illinois

“Wow. I’m blown away at our experience at this restaurant. We made a reservation for my husband’s birthday. I checked the menu online, and EEK saw a number of dishes with peanuts – usually if there is 1 or 2 we won’t avoid but this was several. I called ahead to ask if they could accommodate a nut allergy and they immediately said yes and even shared several ways they isolate preparation of nuts. We had dessert including crème brûlée and chocolate cake (which had almonds but my daughter isn’t allergic to them). Very very fun and a special experience to be able to safely eat Asian food!”

Le Sud

Location: Chicago, Illinois

“We had such a nice meal here and the staff could not have been more helpful! I ordered the crab spaghetti and our waiter made sure to change out the type of pasta it was served on, due to potential cross-contamination. He also made some awesome dessert recommendations that would be safe for me to enjoy – ended up getting crème brûlée and it was fantastic!”

Le Bilboquet

Location: New York, New York

“I went to the brand new location in Cherry creek Colorado, two nights in a row. Absolutely amazing service and delicious food! The Octopus was amazing, so was the fries, Cajun chicken, and steak. I could even order dessert. The crème brûlée and Napoleon was amazing!”

My Cousin’s

Location: Mahopac, New York

“David and his staff are absolutely AMAZING! They completely understand how serious food allergies are. This is the ONLY restaurant where she feels complete after eating out. It never looks like she’s missing a part of her meal. She can also eat their crème brûlée because they make it in house with no cross-contamination to nuts. Super big deal, she cannot eat dessert anywhere else! We are not gluten-free, but they have a lot of options for those who are.”

Sushi Lab Rooftop

Location: New York, New York

“The staff and manager were helpful, and there was a clear protocol in place for food allergies. Desserts and main courses are made in house and safe. The matcha crème brûlée is delicious and all the sushi rolls are very good. Great atmosphere and high end food.”

@mvenezia who manages tree nut and peanut allergies



Location: Asheville, North Carolina

“Nice restaurant with very nice staffs, they do have options but some were a no go because of the shared fryer. The food is more on the fancy side, my kids did have options but they say it’s just ok. Surprised that they offer a safe dessert—crème brûlée. It’s made with coconut. I love it but my kids don’t like the taste.”

The Alcove Restaurant & Lounge

Location: Mount Vernon, Ohio

“We went to visit Kenyon college with my daughter and were told this was the nicest restaurant in town. I was a little nervous because I saw some nuts in the menu, pecans, and one of the specials had cashews (which we had not seen on the menu) – and it’s a smaller town, but when my daughter mentioned her allergy, they were all over it! Very pleasantly surprised! It’s also adorable instead, like a supper club with tons of character. My daughter had a Caesar salad, burger, fries, and raspberry crème brûlée!”

Barclay Prime

Location: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

“Separate huge gluten-free menu, educated staff, even had gluten-free dessert (crème brûlée). Excellent experience.”

Juniata College

Location: Huntingdon, Pennsylvania

“Great staff that went above and beyond to help me find safe choices—even to the point of making special desserts for me so I could try safe versions of foods like crème brûlée for the very first time!”

Once Upon A Time In France

Location: Nashville, Tennessee

“This has some of the best French food in the city, and there is a good number of things that can be made gluten-free. There are also very few nuts that exist on the menu (pecans and almonds only). The escargot and steak are musts! The fish is also fantastic, and the crème brûlée is great and gluten-free! I would check on if they use separate fryers for the fries, but I believe they are the only thing they fry. You have to check this place out!”

Nick & Sam’s

Location: Dallas, Texas

“I went here for a family members birthday and felt very safe. Our waitress knew so much about what was and wasn’t gluten-free and how to modify a dish for it to be safe. I got the crab elote, mushrooms, and Brussel sprouts as sides, and steak. For dessert they had cotton candy and crème brûlée as gluten-free options.”

Le Diplomate

Location: Washington, District of Columbia

“We had a fantastic meal here! I had heard about it so many times that I was afraid it would be too touristy but it was perfect on all accounts. It feels very much like a French bistro and the energy is so fun. We never saw peanuts on the menu and only a few tree nuts. We came here the night before we dropped my daughter off at college, so we ordered a lot—they were very helpful with making sure there were not nuts in what we ordered. I felt they were appropriately cautious. There is a big stand right when you walk in with loaves of bread being sliced for the bread baskets that they bring to the table and one kind did contain walnuts. My daughter is no longer allergic to walnuts but we asked for ours without. For dessert we had vanilla crème brûlée and chocolate pot de crème which had some small chocolate candy balls that they put on the side just in case we weren’t comfortable. Overall such a fun night and highly recommend.”

Location: Green Bay, Wisconsin

“The staff is knowledgeable about the menu and willing to accommodate allergies. They are able to describe how items are made and if the item is made in house. I have been able to safely eat dessert there as it is made in house and they will hold any topping with nuts (such as the nut topping on the crème brûlée or ice cream on the cake).”

Aura Restaurant

Location: Whistler, British Columbia

“The staff was very educated and the food was great! They even made a special crème brûlée ice cream as a safe desert for me.”

Joe Fortes Seafood & Chop House

Location: Vancouver, British Columbia

“I visited Joe Fortes for my birthday and I didn’t have any issues with my allergies. The staff was accommodating and understanding. I ordered the seafood linguine and it was rich and delicious. They even gave me a free crème brûlée for my birthday which was yummy and allergy-friendly as well.”

La Beignerie

Location: Montréal, Quebec

“I got a box of four donuts from this place and was OBSESSED. The best donuts I’ve ever had! Everything is vegan and the staff is so friendly and helpful (and English speaking). They even have ice cream that looked amazing! I got the crème brûlée, smores, passion fruit caramel, and apple fritter. They were so good! Everything is dairy-free and egg-free and they do have nuts and sesame in the shop.”

Teahouse in Stanley Park

Location: Vancouver, British Columbia

“I ate an amazing dinner at this restaurant in Stanley Park. I sent an email to this restaurant prior to making a reservation to see if my peanut and tree nut allergies could be accommodated. There was absolutely no issue and a note was made in the reservation about my food allergies. On arrival at the restaurant, the hostess mentioned my allergies prior to seating us. I mentioned my peanut and tree-nut allergies to the waiter. He was already aware. I ordered pan seared steelhead salmon with roasted fingerling potatoes, ratatouille, and chimichurri. The meal was absolutely delicious! I was even able to order dessert! I haven’t had dessert in a restaurant in years. The Crème Brûlée was wonderful! They were very aware of food allergies and took the issue very seriously.”

The Keg Steakhouse + Bar – Esplanade

Location: Toronto, Ontario

“This location of the Keg was fantastic. My tree nut allergy kid had a steak and they baked fries for him instead of putting them in the fryer. My celiac kids both had steak and mashed potatoes and one had a loaded baked potato. All were amazing. They brought out crème brûlée at the end for us which was great for the gluten-free kids and they loved it.”

La Flamme

Location: Paris, France

“We showed our allergy cards here and the servers took it all very seriously. They confirmed the dishes we ordered with the kitchen. My son has a steak and fries, a roasted chicken dish, chocolate mousse, crème brûlée.”

@jrbruin who manages peanut, tree nut, and sesame allergies

La Fronde

Location: Paris, France

“This was one of my favorite meals on my trip! It was delicious (and perfect after drinking by the canal for the day). I safely had the croque madame and we split the crème brûlée too after asking the waitress if both were nut-free.”

@gracekennard who manages tree nut, peanut, and poppy allergies

L Entrecote Paris

Location: Paris, France

“So incredible for steak frites. I wasn’t able to eat the secret sauce, but the fries and steak sans sauce were still amazing. The wine is super, salad is naturally gluten-free. I got the crème brûlée for dessert- SO good.”

@gfreebasicb who manages celiac


Migomis Piano Restaurant

Location: Agios Nikolaos, Greece

“Stunning restaurant in Crete has an unbelievable view and sits above a square of restaurants and stores that surround a lake – hard to describe but it’s so picturesque! It’s definitely on the fancy side as far as the menu goes – it felt very special. My daughter had bread to start and then a burrata appetizer that came with almond skin but we asked for without it, I don’t know why since my daughter isn’t allergic to almonds haha and tagliatelle with a beef ragu. She also had crème brûlée for dessert. Highly recommend!”

@susie who manages peanut and tree nut allergies


Serafina San Juan Restaurant

Location: San Juan, Puerto Rico

“Paper menu is clearly marked with what is gluten-free or what can be prepared gluten-free. Had gluten-free Penne pasta with sauce, chicken, and bacon – amazing. Crème Brûlée for dessert. Dinner portion was large enough for two people. Service was great.”

@eh2 who manages celiac and peanut allergies



Location: Barcelona, Spain

“Such an incredible experience in the heart of Barcelona! This cooking class began with a tour of La Boqueria Market from the head chef to pick up the fresh, local ingredients. We learned more about the history of the city and the culture of the food scene! Then we spent hours drinking wine and cooking a potato tortilla, vegetable and seafood paella, and crème catalan (like crème brûlée). When booking, we were able to identify any allergies or dietary restrictions which were happily catered for by the staff. No nuts were used throughout our class whatsoever, but there would likely be extensive cross-contamination of other allergens (eggs, milk, soy, wheat, shellfish, etc). But they offer private classes too which may better accommodate other needs!”

Ego Mediterranean Restaurant & Bar, Stockton Heath

Location: Stockton Heath, United Kingdom

“Detailed allergen matrix online and the ability to add allergies to the online booking system. Informed waitstaff on arrival, who made the kitchen staff aware of the allergy on the order. There were also a few desserts that we could have! We both had the crème brûlée – it was lovely!”
