Food is difficult.

Food and cooking

I've spent a fair amount of time figuring out where I, a vegetarian, can eat with friends who go gluten-free. And it occurred to me while making plans with a friend this morning that someone may as well benefit from this acquired knowledge. So. The best chain options I've found are Panera - although I'm currently mad at them for getting rid of all vegetarian entree salads - and Uno's. The latter even has gluten-free pizza crust now, although it doesn't actually seem to be the tastiest thing ever. But still. In general, Mexican food works pretty well, and Indian can work too. Don't even bother trying Italian.

Any other suggestions, or places to avoid?

Well, don't invite me out for lunch (kosher/vegetarian/gluten-free). ;) good luck. Chains & me don't get along but that's probably a good thing. Try local smaller establishments. Look at Shauna's suggestions but mostly stop looking at the "can'ts" and look at the "yes" and the "can". Indian is good but I live in NYC so it's easy for me to get Indian. i think the celiac chicks have reviewed piles of restaurants, though most are probably in NYC. good luck!
