For individuals who have celiac disease — when the gluten proteins found in ingredients like wheat trigger a damaging immune response — cooking at home can sometimes seem safer than dining out. The same goes for people who are gluten-intolerant or choose to avoid the ingredient for other health reasons. But celiac or gluten-intolerant individuals need not struggle in finding a wonderful gluten-free menu in Los Angeles. They’re about as prominent as one would expect, and these days, restaurants do far more than gluten-free baked goods. From handmade pasta at a Westside Italian restaurant to an abundance of gluten-free fried chicken, here is a guide to 21 places to eat gluten-free in Los Angeles.
Note that this map doesn’t indicate whether restaurants use separate facilities/tools for gluten-free dishes; diners should inquire to individual restaurants for specific dietary concerns.
