Check Out These Gluten-Free-Friendly Restaurants Near Vail

Dining out when you're gluten-free, or at least on a gluten-reduced diet, can be challenging – especially on vacation when indulgence is paramount. As a fellow gluten-free devotee, I know the struggle is real.

Here are four restaurants that do a good job with gluten-free requests and are simply delicious! Check ahead, however, if you're celiac for possible gluten cross-contamination limitations.

La Tour Restaurant & Bar

122 E. Meadow Drive, Vail

La Tour's menu is covered with GF labels! This restaurant has it all, including gluten-free artisan cheese plates, lobster toast, Colorado lamb shank, pistachio cheesecake ... the list goes on!

The Rose

97 Main Street, Edwards

My favorite meal at The Rose is buffalo cauliflower as an appetizer (made with gluten-free flour in the fryer) and the beef barbacoa tacos (served on corn tortillas). The staff is responsive to gluten-free requests!

56 Edwards Village Boulevard, Edwards

Craftsman features a casual atmosphere (you order at the counter and seat yourself), along with an expansive sandwich menu. Gluten-free bread is available. I also love its kale salad, served with avocado and a soft-boiled egg. Yum!

Sadly, Craftsman doesn't have gluten-free beer (that I know of), but they do offer wine options.

Zino Ristorante

27 Main Street, Edwards

I'm currently obsessed with Zino's Salsiccia pizza on a gluten-free crust. It's made with house-made sausage, artichokes, mozzarella, pecorino, chili oil and more. The crust is crusty and thin with the perfect amount of crunch. Match the pizza with a glass of Prosecco, and you've got yourself a delicious meal!

Zino's also offers a tasty gluten-free pasta option.
