Atlanta’s gluten-free dining scene has changed drastically over the last few years, making it much easier for people suffering from gluten intolerance to find creative (and delicious) dining options in the city.

Fast-casual spot Arepa Mia serves traditional Venezuelan cuisine from an entirely gluten-free menu at locations in Edgewood (inside the Sweet Auburn Curb Market) and Decatur. Order one of their signature arepas, cachapas, tostones, or their fried sweet plantains served with creamy nata dipping sauce for a flavorful snack.

Bantam + Biddy has a full menu of gluten-free options, but it’s their meatloaf that is truly unique—substituting mashed potato flakes for breadcrumbs. The generous portion comes topped with smoked tomato gravy. The restaurant also features savory gluten-free dishes like duck fat french fries, fried chicken tenders, sweet potato fries and jalapeño cornbread.

Ecco invites diners to a two-fold experience with a buzzing bar scene ideal for happy hour and a luxe dining room with booths ensconced in lush fabrics for a sophisticated dinner. The restaurant offers a separate gluten-free menu full of European cuisine with regularly rotating options. Right now, gluten-free features include charred baby octopus, roasted quail and pommes frites.

Le Metro Creperie in Sweet Auburn Curb Market offers sweet and savory gluten-free crepes, crepe cones and crepe lasagna. Take a seat at the counter and enjoy a crepe that is light, flavorful, and stuffed to the brim with meats, cheeses, fruits and other clever fillings. The restaurant has a dedicated gluten-free kitchen and continues to expand its offerings.

Leon’s Full Service‘s gluten-free menu is full of options, but some notable choices are their addictive pub frites and savory brussels sprout hash. The pub frites are flash-fried twice to give them their signature crunch and are served with a range of delectable dipping sauces (think garlic aioli and smoked tomato), while the brussels sprout hash delivers savory with a dash of sweet (tossed with Pine Street bacon, sweet onions and apple).

Park 75 at the Four Seasons Hotel Atlanta offers fine dining with a laid-back spin at its elegant gluten-free tea service. Menu selections include homemade scones with lemon curd, jam, and cream; French macaroons and desserts; and chicken salad, salmon, crab and cucumber sandwiches brought out on a three-tiered server.

Tin Roof Kitchen‘s menu is 100 percent gluten-free dedicated, so you can eat anything on the breakfast, lunch or dinner menus and know that what you’re eating is gluten-free. Set within a restored home, the place offers a distinct Southern vibe great for getting away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Breakfast is a great meal to enjoy on the porch with the restaurant’s gluten-free spread of pancakes, eggs benedict on brioche, French toast and waffles.

YEAH! Burger wants all of its diners to enjoy a “real burger experience,” so they don’t cut corners when making their finger-lickin’ good onion rings (in a dedicated gluten-free fryer). They also offer gluten-free buns for their burgers, as well as gluten-free salads, french fries, beer options and more.
