CA, Walnut Creek – Citra Grill


Thanks to Diana for emailing this recommendation:

Being dairy free and gluten free in the San Francisco Bay Area I have been able to find some excellent restaurant recommendations. Citra Grill is in Walnut Creek, CA and has been around for 2 years. They have a great Philosophy on there menu page, but my favorite parts are that they are completely dairy free except for some cream in their soups. Then they are completely gluten free except for the Citra flat bread. You can get kabobs and then it comes with 3 great mini salads that are like coleslaw and potato salad, but they use no mayo! It is great for individuals with allergies.

Citra Grill focuses on healthy, organic, “clean” cuisine using “the highest grade of fresh meats, vegetables, and seafood available anywhere.” (according to their website). They prepare a range of skewers marinated in extra-virgin olive oil and citrus juices and serve with fresh produce. Citra Grill also offers several fresh salad options. Note that some of the salads do have cheese (which can be omitted on ordering), but the dressings appear dairy-free (check!). Also, the desserts at Citra Grill may not be dairy-free and/or gluten-free.
