Washington, D.C. Allergy-Friendly Restaurant List
“I almost cried. My 12 year old has never eaten pancakes or really any other breakfast food unless I’ve made it from scratch. Sticky Fingers serves brunch on the weekends & he was able to order pancakes, a muffin, a donut & a ton of sweets. It was amazing!!”
“My son was in D.C. for a class trip. I wasn’t comfortable with the selected restaurant for dinner one night. Legal Sea Foods allowed me to call in his order from the bus and they prepared him a delicious and safe meal in to go containers.”
“We were able to order a safe meal for my son, who is allergic to dairy, eggs, peanuts, mustard and more. The wait staff was knowledgeable. His food came out from the kitchen separate. A very neat restaurant, historic decor, right by the White House.”
“Great experience! The chef came out and spoke with us personally and the waiter took our allergies really seriously.”
“The waiter asked us about our allergies; reviewed menu items in which we were interested; checked with the chef (including reviewing ingredients); and reported to us what was totally safe. Their meals were prepared and served separately.”
“He was knowledgeable about soy lecithin – that some are allergic to it, while others who have a soy allergy are not – and he asked how I reacted to it because there was soy lecithin in some items. He did say they don’t use soy flour. They did a great job of making me feel welcome and safe.”
“This was one of the few places we went on our vacation where she was able to have options other than a plain burger patty, or plain chicken. The chef took an allergy menu (which already lists items that can be made dairy free, nut free, shellfish free) and indicated which of those items could also be made tomato free.”
