Spanish tapas. I still think about the skirt steak romesco...

My list of restaurants around the country- these are mostly gluten-free friendly and/or use local/ organic ingredients. Or they're just awesome.
Only show places...
This is my neighborhood burger place (and definitely the most stylish burger joint I've been to). They use local, grass-fed meat and their sweet potato fries and truffle fries are great. They now have gluten-free buns, though I get my burgers without a bun. Quality all around. It's busy all the time, so you might want to call ahead.
I love the Peruvian Chicken dinner- a half roast chicken with creamy, spicy dipping sauces and choice of sides- I get the smoky turnip greens and fried plantains (not on the menu but just ask). Fun, creative tacos and burritos and an extensive gluten-free menu.
Great French comfort food. Very easy to get gluten free food and the staff is so accommodating. The goat cheese cheese cake with hazelnut crust and cherry compote is a dream, as is the clafoutis (made with almond flour!) The crispy duck confit over black lentils is one of my favorites.
South Indian vegetarian cuisine. Lots of coconut based curries and dosas (lentil flour crepes). They bring dosas stuffed with curried potatoes and onions to the table when you get the buffet. I like to eat them with the coconut sambar.
Urban organic grocer with a great hot food bar and salad bar. Amazing chicken salad and good hot entrees (including fish and roasted vegetables), as well as soups. They use a lot of local ingredients. Pleasant dining area that gets packed at lunch time.
