We asked some of the biggest names in the nation’s allergy community about their top picks for lesser-known allergy-friendly restaurants. Here’s what they came up with:

Davio’s Northern Italian Steakhouse
Boston, Philadelphia and Atlanta
www.davios.com
“This higher end restaurant is worth a splurge. Their gluten-free menus are extensive, and their overall food allergy awareness is excellent.”
–Paul Antico, www.allergyeats.com

Blue Smoke
116 E. 27th St., New York City
www.bluesmoke.com
“Enjoy jazz and mouthwatering barbecue under one roof. They have nut- and gluten-free menus, which include fantastic salt and pepper ribs.”
–Sloane Miller, www.allergicgirl.com

Lebanese Taverna
10 locations in the Washington, D.C. area
www.lebanesetaverna.com
“Since completing NFCA’s GREAT Kitchens training, their menu has become rich with gluten-free offerings and they have gained popularity with the D.C. food allergy community.”
–Alice Bast, www.celiaccentral.org

Weber Grill Restaurant
3 Chicago area locations, 1 in Indianapolis
www.webergrillrestaurant.com
“The restaurants have a fun atmosphere where Weber grills are used as the cooking medium. Their gluten-free menu is carefully thought through, with delicious burgers, ribs and brisket.”
–Michael De Cicco-Butz, www.glutenfreemike.com

Hugo’s Restaurant
3 locations in the Los Angeles area
www.hugosrestaurant.com
“Recognized for their expansive and diverse menu, Hugo’s uses organic ingredients, egg-free pasta, hormone-free meats and highlights menu items that are gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian or contain nuts.”
–Kim Koeller, www.glutenfreepassport.com

Greens Restaurant
15 Marina Blvd., Fort Mason Center, San Francisco, CA

“This is one of the West Coast’s premier vegetarian restaurants, and Chef Annie Somerville is completely food allergy savvy with unique substitution ideas.”
–Mireille Schwartz, www.allergysf.com
