Recommendations for folks with food allergies?
I am looking for table service restaurant recommendations. Since my wife has several food allergies (wheat/barley, soy, and shellfish) and is also a vegetarian, we must limit our choices to those places that are willing to prepare special dishes just for her (so most buffets are out). Since we have the Disney Dining Experience card, we also try to limit our choices to places that accept the DDE card. Finally, we typically eat out only for dinner (having breakfast or lunch in our room).
Thus far, we have tried California Grill, Jiko, Citricos, Coral Reef, Grand Floridian Café, Flying Fish Café, Kona Café, Artist Point, Yachtsman Steakhouse, Le Cellier Steakhouse, Spoodles, and Narcoossee’s. Most have been very accommodating to my wife’s special dietary restrictions.
Can anyone recommend any other TS restaurants for dinner that would also be as accommodating?
I think most all of the table service restaurants are accommodating if you call ahead. Here is an article on how others have delt with this situation....Dining with Food Allergies at Walt Disney World
My cousin has an allergie to peanuts and every restaurant we went in we told them when we made reservations then when we go to the restaurant the head chef came out and showed him what he could have and in Cyrstal Palace the head chef baked him a bunch of roll separate of the others. Every restaurant we went in (Cyrstal Palace, Chef Mickey, Hollywood and Vine, Rainforest Cafe) was very accomodating.

Don't write off buffets just because of your allergies. Just make sure you note the allergy on the reservation and talk to the CM when you arrive. The chefs will be willing to make you plates of food specific to your needs. You just need to make sure you call ahead and let them know in advance.
