Posted on: May 3rd, 2017 by Taryn Jeffries No Comments

With the increase in celiac disease and gluten sensitivities, restaurants are including options for all their diners. May is Celiac Disease Awareness Month, creating the perfect opportunity to shine a light on some unexpected places in town that feature gluten free menu choices as good if not better than their non-gluten free counterparts.

5 of the Best Mainstream Restaurants with Surprising Gluten Free Menu Items

Surprising Scottsdale restaurants with gluten free menu items
Citizen Public House

7111 E. 5th Ave. | Scottsdale | 480.398.4208 | $$$$
Citizen Public House ScallopsCitizen Public House is known for ensuring that patrons have an exceptional dining adventure, regardless of their dietary requirements. Their menu is infused with gluten free options so tempting that you’d order them if you didn’t have any limitations. The pan seared scallops and gypsy pork shank are stellar entrée options. If you’re looking for something lighter, consider the filet mignon asada tacos. End your meal on a sweet note with a bag ‘o bacon brittle.

Malee’s Thai Bistro
7131 E. Main St. | Scottsdale | 480.947.6042 | $$$$
Malees Drunken Dragon WrapsFor those that like their meal with a little kick, Malee’s extensive gluten free menu will do the trick. The eatery is extremely sensitive to cross-contamination issues and looks for every conceivable measure to assure that your meal will be prepared safely. With nine different starters available you really can’t go wrong, but make sure to try the drunken dragon wraps. Tender chicken, a mild curry and coconut milk along with peanuts and cilantro provide a flavorful introduction to a remarkable meal. If you wish to stick with the curry flavors, the evil jungle princess entrée is an ideal option. The layers of character brought on by the chicken, straw mushrooms and coconut milk are distinguished on their own, but when you factor in your individual preference of heat with the curry, you’ll be over the moon!

Tommy V’s Urban Kitchen
7303 E. Indian School Road | Scottsdale | 480.427.2264 | $$$$
Tommy V's marinated white anchoviesTommy V’s menu is riddled with outstanding gluten free options, from starters to pasta and all the way to their entrees. Start off with marinated white anchovies, dressed with sun-dried tomato, marinated olives, roasted bell peppers and an aromatic and bright citrus juice and extra virgin olive oil. The fresh, briny and tart flavors play off one another, bouncing back and forth from all angles of your palate. There’s no better way to begin a meal than getting all your senses engaged.  On top of that, all the pasta dishes here can be made to order with gluten free pastas as well.

U.S. Egg
7119 E. Shea Blvd. | Scottsdale | 480.443.5558 | $$$$
3238 N. Scottsdale Road | Scottsdale | 480.947.7344 | $$$$
With the largest gluten-free menu in the state you’d be hard-pressed to not come across something to your liking at U. S. Egg. Their breakfast menu features a collection of Benedicts, omelets, waffles and French toast, all with a bounty of egg add ons. Their lunch burgers and sandwiches are all served on fluffy on the inside and crisp on the outside gluten-free toast. You will also find hearty salad options as well to assure that you can get exactly what you’re craving.

6850 E. Main St. | Scottsdale | 855.441.2423 | $$$$
Resort restaurants are becoming the place to be on the weekends for locals, and ZuZu is at the top of the list. The breakfast, lunch and dinner menus present an ample range of sweet and savory gluten free options. Their stuffed French toast is packed with lemon cream cheese and fresh berries. Special gourmet burgers (of which there are seven) can all be served up on a rice flour bun along with homemade potato chips or coleslaw. The dinner menu features not one, but five gluten free alternatives, which suggests you’ll never get bored of the food here!
