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.
