The Atlanta Gluten-Free Dinner Club

January 11th, 2011 by John Libonati

We currently have 338 members and have held 84 meetups since October 2003

The purpose of this group is to share experience, strength, and laughter with other Celiacs while enjoying gluten free meals at area restaurants. Our dinners are lots of fun & a great way to learn tips and information about living gluten free! Sometimes our best resources are each other!

If you enjoy dining out and meeting new friends, then this group is for you! We are always looking for the best places to eat gluten free in the Atlanta area. We have more options now than ever before as restaurants learn how to accommodate a gluten free diet. The options for us grow every year! Things we thought we couldn’t have anymore (pizza, pasta, Asian cuisine, even fried food!) have once again become part of our diets.

A great resource is our Message Board where you can join in a discussion on a gluten free topic or ask a question.
