We thank all of those who voted Busboys and Poets: Best Gluten-Free Menu in Washington City Paper’s Best of DC 2015 poll. 

We’ve made it our mission to be an inclusive dining space, and the place to bring your friends and family for a great meal regardless of their dietary restrictions.  Accommodating gluten-free folks has been an utmost priority since the rise in celiac disease has been so rapid.  Word is still out on what is to blame for the growing per cent of the population that has to stay alert around food.  We know that eating out can be an anxious experience for many celiacs, and it’s encouraging to hear that City Paper readers trust us for a safe experience. 

What’s gluten free on our menu?

– Beef Chili
– Shrimp & Grits
– Nachos
– Gluten-Free Pizza
– Catfish
– Blackened Salmon
– Fried Chicken
– Beans & Wild Rice
– Cream of Tomato Soup
– Harira Soup
– All salads with the exception of Falafel and Spinach & Wheatberry
