Did you see this article by Katie Workman "When Cardamom Can Kill? " in this past week's New York Magazine.
And there were also some tips from this Allergic Girl. (Remember the egg white in my drink? On a date no less! Oy!) Have a look at some more AG tips to help when dining out.
Really, the more it gets talked about, the more patrons let restaurants know their needs, the better I think for those of us with food restrictions or specialized diets.
Thank you New York Magazine!
