Rejoice, my celiac friends! There is actually a restaurant in Boston that understands cross contamination for those highly sensitive folk out there. This place is Joe’s American Bar and Grill on Newbury Street, which not only has a separate fryer for fried items, but also a completely separate kitchen.
Yes, at Joe’s American you can go out with your friends and get a burger with a bun and a side of fries just like everyone else! And you can get toast with your eggs rather than a sad side of fruit that you’ll still get charged for. At Joe’s, you don’t have to worry about the gluten free “tax.”
For everyone else, Joe’s is just a fun, lively place with great food — from burgers to salads to pizza. Sit in the glass enclosed bar and “patio” area right on Newbury street for some prime people watching, or in the large, classic, sunken dining area below.
A note to celiac or gluten free eaters: Joe’s has other locations in the area, but their menus and kitchen practices are unique — so check before you go to another location!
