Anyone gluten-free knows that dining out on a Celiac diet can be dangerous. You never know where the gluten might be lurking in food prepared by someone else – especially if the restaurant staff aren’t in the know. But if you’re lucky enough to be eating out in the City by the Bay, there are a number of awesome and safe gluten-free restaurants where you can pig out without worrying. These should all be on your gluten-free SF bucket list.
