Best Events for Guests with Food Allergies and Dietary Restrictions

Not all of us have adventurous appetites. Sometimes it’s by choice, and sometimes it’s due to a food allergy or other dietary restriction. In the latter case, careful planning is a necessity to make sure everyone feels accommodated and welcomed at your event. In either case, there are tons of options for event planners or field marketers to choose from when planning an event around a specific appetite or allergy. Below are some of our favorite appetite-conscious selections.

Gluten-free eating at Seattle Cider

Nestled in the Emerald City’s Cap Hill neighborhood, Seattle Cider exudes ambiance—from its two-story, fishing village-style pub exterior to its cozy wood paneled interior complete with iron chandelier and local art. For the dietary restricted among your group, Seattle Cider also has an additional claim to fame: a fully gluten-free menu, perfect for sampling while playing a spy-themed puzzle adventure with your group.

Vegetarian tasting menu at Honey Salt

Indulge in farm-to-table fare at Honey Salt, Las Vegas’s premier destination for vegetarian food.
