In honor of Pride Month, we are thrilled to feature
Split-Rail, a LGBTQ-owned restaurant and a haven to the food allergy community. Chef and owner Zoe Schor is allergic to peanuts and tree nuts and has a sesame intolerance and her Chicago-based restaurant is 100% nut-free, including the desserts and alcohol. Her experiences dining out with food allergies and with friends and family with specialized diets fueled her desire to take the embarrassment out of dining out with food allergies and build trust with her customers in her own restaurant.  

Chef Rick Bayless

Rick Bayless and Lin-Manuel Miranda in front of Frontera Grill. Rick Bayless is the eight time winner of the James Beard award, founder of acclaimed restaurants Frontera Grill and Topolobampo, and is also a food allergy dad. We were eager to find out a Chef’s perspective on serving people with food allergies in arguably some of the busiest restaurants in the country. Rick gave us the skinny on allergies he can accommodate, his restaurant protocols, and his advice to ensure our dining experience is as wonderful as he wants it to be for us.
