AllergyEats has named One Dish Cuisine Café, Deli and Bakery, in Ellicott City, Maryland, the most allergy-friendly restaurant in the United States. This independent restaurant goes to amazing lengths to offer a best-in-class allergy-friendly environment, where dining out with food allergies and celiac disease can be a relaxing, enjoyable experience. One Dish Cuisine is free of most common allergens, including peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, fish, shellfish, wheat, and soy, as well as gluten. While the restaurant does serve dairy, all dairy-based meals are made in a separate kitchen with strict protocols in place to avoid cross-contact with milk, butter, and cheese. To further avoid possible cross-contact risk–and to increase the comfort of One Dish Cuisine’s food-allergic customers–owner Maureen Burke prohibits outside food from being brought into the restaurant.
“Each year, AllergyEats spotlights the most allergy-friendly chain restaurants. This year, for the first time, we’re showcasing the most allergy-friendly independent restaurant in the nation,” said Paul Antico, Founder and CEO of AllergyEats.
