Except for when it comes to those dessert options, my food allergies haven’t really prevented me from ordering pretty much any I want from a restaurant menu. But having a friend with Celiac Disease, I’ve recently become more aware of the challenges of keeping a gluten-free diet and how difficult ordering at a restaurant can be. For National Celiac Awareness Day on September 13th, Roti Mediterranean Grill is making it very easy though and offering a special gluten free menu. Roti Mediterranean Grill is actually pretty G-Free friendly year-round, offering gluten-free pita bread for an additional $2 and listing their gluten free menu items on their website. Tomorrow, they will offer three special G-free combinations and donate $1 to the largest non-profit celiac support group in America, the Celiac Sprue Association, if you purchase one of them. So even if you don’t typically keep a G-Free diet, support those who do on National Celiac Awareness Day.
Roti Mediterranean Grill has 5 locations in the District of Columbia: 1747 Penn (1747 Pennsylvania Avenue NW), NoMa (1275 First Street NE), L’Enfant Plaza (at the l’Enfant Plaza metro station), Foggy Bottom (2221 I Street NW) and the recently opened 1629 K Street (1629 K Street NW.)
