Where should I eat if I have a dietary restriction?

Diners who avoid gluten can head to Cinnamon Works (1536 Pike Pl) in Pike Place Market for monster-size cookies or Ghostfish Brewing (2942 First Ave S) in SoDo for genuinely great gluten-free beer and food. Up on Capitol Hill, Capitol Cider* (818 E Pike St) also eschews gluten—and peanuts and tree nuts.

Vegetarians can rejoice at Cafe Flora (2901 E Madison St) in Madison Valley, an airy restaurant with ample options for vegans and anyone with nut, soy, or gluten intolerance (look for sibling counter Floret at SEA Airport). Across the street, Araya’s Place (2808 E Madison St and 5240 University Way NE) dishes out delicious vegan Thai—maximize the experience at their lunch buffet. And nearby, at Capitol Hill’s Plum Bistro (1429 12th Ave), chef Makini Howell serves elegant plates of gourmet plant-based fare in a trendy space.

Got a vegan sweet tooth? Look no further than the organic, cakey doughnuts of Mighty-O (various locations); for ice cream, even dairy lovers can’t get enough of the vegan, gluten-free goodness at Frankie and Jo’s (various locations).
