A nod to the difficulties of eating out

I'm a little late posting this, but I thought it was really cool to see a local restaurant acknowledging the difficulties eating out with food allergies. I've blogged about this before and I know other people have too.

I don't think a 5 year old and 3 year old would really dig this posh restaurant, so I hope family-style restaurants consider doing the same thing. It would be so cool to be able to order ANYTHING off the menu at a restaurant, or at least have it CLEARLY marked so we'd know what we could get AND actually have the food contain what the server says it does (or does not).

Here is another idea .... Can you imagine how cool it would be if underneath the description of the food on a menu there was a list of allergens (like we get on food labels) ... for example:

Chicken Fingers Allergens: wheat, soy, egg, dairy

Oh, and it should be in plain English, like that, not "casein, whey, etc."

Is that really so hard??

Wow, what a dream!!

Doesn't seem hard but they don't want to be legally responsible I guess.

Ming Tsai does something similar in his restaurant in MA. He does it because his son has severe food allergies. I haven't gone b/c it's $$$ but I hope other places follow the lead!

Chili's is *awesome* about food allergies--not only do they update monthly but the last time we went, the manager personally brought out the allergen info printed out.

Cici's pizza is great too, and Burger King has a good listing.

Sonic sucks though, I'm sure it's CYA but the only thing my son can have there is a Limeade.
