Questionable DC eating options

After a few days of successfully eating gluten free in Washington DC, I am pretty sure I finally got glutened. Either my lunch at Bus Boys and Poets (I had about half of this giant pile of vegan nachoes) or my dinner at Naked Pizza was the culprit. Both have gluten free options. I ran out of Glutenease the same day.

DC restaurant: Open City

Open City in NW Washington DC seems to be a very safe choice for gluten free diners. And it's yummy. I had a chickpea shrimp quinoa dinner and went back the next day for breakfast. My latte was delicious as was my mushroom omelette with corn grits. They had vegan options too, but I didnt notice anything that was gf, vegan,*and* soy free. I'd definitely go back here and it's near a Metro stop.

Washington DC restaurant: Legal Seafood

Rediscovered Legal Seafood this summer while in Boston. They are great with gluten free diners. They have a celiac menu with plenty of options (appetizers through dessert) and will even bring warm gf bread rolls to the table. We ate there twice in Boston and again in DC recently.

(Not a good choice for vegan diners.)

Denver airport

Gluten free options in Denver airport:

Jamba Juice and TCBY are my top picks.

Hudson News in Terminal B sells lots of gf snacks: original corn nuts, Kind bars and granola, some gf Go Packs, various types of gf popcorn and popcorn chips and dried fruit, Pop Chips, Mrs Mays snacks, and more.

It's all better than nothing but I am tired of eating processed food.
