I was recently approached and asked about where I eat in the Burke/Springfield area. My answer is- All Over! There are SOO many places coming out with gluten-free menus now. Especially, if you head over to the Fairfax or Springfield areas there are TONS of gluten-free options available. There's also even a few gluten-free friendly places FINALLY in the Burke area itself, although they are still mainly fast food places like Chipotle, CAVA and Chick-Fil-A. For this particular post though, I'm only including actual sit down restaurants. Here are a few of my favorites
Mosaic District- I have long said the Mosaic District is GF paradise. They just keep getting better and better with gluten-free offerings. These restaurants all have GF menus available.

Rise Bakery is DC's only 100% gluten-free bakery. Located in Adams Morgam, they offer a variety of tasty bread products like biscuits and challah and complement them with savory sandwich offerings. Each item they offer is better than the next. Seriously, they have ham and cheese stuffed croissants, chocolate eclairs the size of your head and bagels that actually taste like bagels!

For those not in the Adams Morgan area regularly, they will ship products and are also available in select Whole Foods and Glen's Garden Markets in the DC metro area. Enjoy!
