@infosecfoodie, who manages peanut, tree nut, egg, and sesame allergies

“The server was on top of everything and doubled-checked the ingredients with the chef just to make sure after we asked a question. They are simply the best and are very understanding. Also, they proudly display their “FARE” award right when you walk in the door. This was the 4th time my son has eaten there with no issues whatsoever. I highly recommend Piccolo Sogno!!!!”

@felipec1629, who manages a peanut allergy



Location: Northbrook, Illinois

“The food is unique and delicious Japanese street food. An email to the restaurant confirms they use almond extract in one dessert and in one drink. Besides that, they use no other nuts in their kitchen. Bonus!”

@sujaykapadia, who manages peanut and tree nut allergies

Eris Brewery & Cider House

Location: Chicago, Illinois

“Overall great experience. Went with 16 kids! Ours were the only with food allergies. They have a mission on their website that they have menus for all and don’t want anyone to be left out. The waitstaff was a little overwhelmed as anyone would be with 16 kids so I had to double and triple-check our kid’s foods were safe, which they were. Even for adults, they label cross-contamination on their ciders with dairy and wheat”

@amseidler, who manages tree nuts, milk, egg, sesame, sunflower, and garlic allergies


Wildfire Glenview

Location: Glenview, Illinois

“Major props to Evelyn in carryout! She was very patient when we placed an order for Mother’s Day, listening to our concerns and checking on multiple ingredient lists. We highly recommend Wildfire-not just for the delicious food but for the very well-trained staff and all the accommodations they make so that food-allergic families are safe and have lots of options.””

Zingerman’s Roadhouse

Location: Ann Arbor, Michigan

“Went to Zingerman’s Roadhouse on a college visit to the University of Michigan. We ordered the pulled pork for my egg, dairy, and nut-allergic son. They took the order over the phone and were very proactive about handling the allergies, noting them on the ticket as well. The smoked pulled pork was out of this world delicious. If you are in Ann Arbor, this place is worth checking out!”

Ventano Italian Grill & Seafood

Location: Henderson, Nevada

“Wanted to share one of our favorites, this place is the best! The staff are well informed about food allergies and always go out of their way to accommodate our needs. Might still be a little risky with a fish or shellfish allergy, but for us (pn/tn), we feel comfortable.”

@allergeninside, who manages peanut and tree nut allergies



Black Rock Kitchen

Location: Croton-on-Hudson, New York

“The chef has severe celiac and understands. For those who manage allergies, you know what I mean—he UNDERSTANDS. All breads are gluten-free except one and the kitchen sends pans and dishes used for our allergy kiddo through the industrial washer a second time, and they are inspected by the chef prior to use.”

@jordanhumphrey, who manages peanut, tree nut, milk, egg allergies


The Vine

Please inform your server of any sensitivities, so our kitchen can be notified and handle your meal with the care it deserves.””

Maggiano’s Little Italy

Corso Kléber

Location: Paris, France

“Detailed allergen menu which permitted our ANA PN allergy twins to identify peanuts and lupin(a nut which people with peanut allergies are also allergic to) in the menu—which was limited to dessert only. We highly recommend this restaurant.”
