A while back, I ate at the Corner House Restaurant (501 Davenport Road @ Spadina). Before going, I called and was amazed to learn that gluten was not a foreign term. At the restaurant, I found that the wait staff was familiar with gluten too.

Many menu items were gluten-free. Corner House is not a cheap place, however, but it is good.

was it under or over 20 bucks for your food?

Pangaea (www.pangaearestaurant.com) on Bay just north of Bloor is also fantastic, but also far from $20 (which is why I've only been there once -- when a partner at a firm I interviewed with was paying.) Best rack of lamb I've ever tasted. The service was fabulous; they knew what gluten was and what it was in, and were very surreptitious about removing my bread plate and then pointing out the menu items that were safe for me to eat (I called in advance and got there a bit earlier than my group, so they knew I was coming and who I was once I got there.) Definitely a place to go if you are with clients or want to impress someone, where you will not be made to feel like a freak. The best part is that you will eat some of the best food I've ever tasted, anywhere.

I meant it was over $20 for the food. I misread the question...
