Tip of the Day: The Best Time to Dine Out With Food Allergies
The best time I have found to dine out with my severe food allergies is around 3:00 in the afternoon. This is true especially if it is the first time you have tried to eat at this restaurant. You will want a lot of time to go over the menu and ask questions of the server. Around this time you will most likely be able to speak with the chef and perhaps be given a tour of the kitchen. This is a good time because the lunch rush is over and the dinner rush has not yet begun. It will be a time when the server and the kitchen staff will be able to best assist you in your needs; cleaning kitchen wares, scraping down a section of the grill just for you, reading product labels. Hopefully you will have a great experience and will know of one more place that is safe for you to eat.
