Gluten-free dining out?

A TNT Diner reader inquired about local eateries offering gluten-free options.

His comment: “When I walk into a restaurant and ask for gluten-free service I get blank stares, shrugs or comments like ‘We don’t add glucose to our food’. “

Gluten is not glucose (a sugar).

Gluten is a protein found in many grains, and it’s also used as an additive. People with Celiac disease or other gluten sensitivities must avoid gluten to remain healthy.

How about it? Anyone out there had success finding South Sound restaurants that cater to the gluten sensitive?
