We've all been there. The excitement when you see a menu and go hey, they have gluten free pizza or they have gluten free buns for a burger. The next thought you have is "man... I'd really like to have a beer with that!" and then you look at the menu only to be disappointed. Really? You went so far as to have a gluten free menu, gluten free bread, gluten free pizza but you didn't add just one of the many gluten free beers now available?

The folks at the Cleveland Clinic created a great infographic on the sneaky places gluten hides. I remember when I was first diagnosed I was excited that I could have sushi and then surprised that I had to do so much research on it. Soy Sauce, tempura, crab stick, eel sauce, they all contained gluten. Who know? The below infographic is great at giving you some quick tips. Feel free to add more in the comments!

My wife and I have lived in Donelson for the past 8 years. I love this side of town! The older houses, large yards and affordable neighborhoods, they're awesome! The only complain I have had about Donelson is restaurants and the lack there of, luckily downtown is not far away. Although there are not a lot of restaurants, one that is always good, there is always room and they are gluten free friendly now is Darfon's on Elm Hill Pike. This is one of my favorite places. Their staff has always been great working with gluten free options but now they have made it official with all gluten free options marked with an * on their menu.
Darfon's is great for any time of day and any price range. If you're in the mood for a great burger (bunless for now but fingers crossed) at a good price or delicious filet mignon or just brunch on a laid back Saturday with $3 mimosa's and $5 bloody Mary's they have you covered. My two personal favorites (yes, because I can not choose) are the C…
Dedicated gluten free menu, they even carry gluten free chips not fried with everything else!
Tip: If you have kids, but a t-shirt and they get free tacos every Monday.
Awesome locally sourced butcher that provides great meats and sausages without any gluten ingredients or preservatives.
Last night we ventured out East side to Rumors East. If you've never been before, the back patio is the best in Nashville and a great way to spend a few hours with great friends, spectacular food and fabulous wine. Unfortunately it was all booked but we did get to sit on the front porch which made us feel like we were hip and living in East Nashville watching out neighbors walk by with their dogs. Rumors changes their menu depending on what they get fresh that day and what is fresh in their garden. That's right, they have a garden by the back patio where most of their greens come straight from. While they do not have a dedicated gluten free menu, the staff is up-to-date on issues and are very helpful.
We started with a pitcher of sangria and some goat cheese grilled in grape leaves along with some melon wrapped in salami. Both were spectacular although I was partial to the grape leaves stuffed with goat cheese. Anytime there is goat cheese involved it will win. The gr…
Looking for a great vibe, awesome food and spectacular cocktails? Then why not climb up in a treehouse? The Treehouse in East Nashville is an eclectic restaurant who's menu has all gluten free options marked easily, along with vegetarian options too. From kale & quinoa to pineapple with molasses and lime zest everything on the menu is tasty! My personal favorite at the moment are the plantains followed by the frisee then ending with the salmon.
And if you're looking for late night, you can't beat the 10 after 10!
Small menu but they offer gluten free bread for all their sandwiches and gluten free beer. What more can you ask for?
They also offer a great brunch on Saturday and Sundays. Our favorite is the open-faced home monte cristo.
