I was recently approached at the DC GF Expo and asked by multiple newly diagnosed people 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. Yes, you do have to drive a little bit, but that's just the curse of the Burke area in general unfortunately. For an area with so many people, there is seriously a lack of local restaurants. But head over to the Fairfax or Springfield areas and there are TONS of gluten-free options available. Here are a few of my favorites.
Mosaic District- I have long said that the Mosaic District is GF paradise. They just keep getting better and better with gluten-free offerings. These restaurants all have GF menus available.

Both of these options are chains with locations available all over the NOVA area.
Clifton- This is one of my FAVORITE areas! It is such a cute little village with great historic charm and there are some great restaurants with GF offerings.
Trattoria Villagio- trattoriavillagio.com/about/ (GF pasta available and they will tailor make almost anything for you. Customer service is AMAZING!)
Trummer's on Main- www.trummersonmain.com/ (Probably my favorite restaurant in the entire NOVA area. Their brunch is to die for!)
