Blue Smoke Hosts Worry Free Dinners (TM) Food Allergy Event in NYC


New York, NY — Finally, dining out with food allergies doesn't have to come with a side of miscommunication and an after-dinner trip to the emergency room. Worry Free Dinners' fourth prix fixe dinner takes place at 6:00pm on Monday, July 28th at Blue Smoke (116 East 27th Street, New York City). This dinner is designed to allow allergic diners to get together and order with ease, knowing that Blue Smoke's Executive Chef Ken Callaghan and the restaurant's entire team are catering to their special needs …

Sloane Miller, President, Allergic Girl Resources, Inc., created the niche-dining concept based on her love of food, and regrets that as a diner with severe fish and tree-nut allergies, dining out has been challenging at best. After much trial and error, Ms. Miller found restaurants and chefs that were only too happy to create safe meals for food allergic diners.Ms. Miller, who counsels people with allergies and is a health expert at, is dedicated to finding ways to make life easier for food-allergic people.Special menus with a range of choices for each Worry-Free Dinners(TM) event are carefully planned in advance by the chef with valuable input from Ms. Miller. Meals are open to a small group of 8-12 diners whose allergies are manageable and match the planned menu, e.g. wheat allergic diners would sign up for a wheat-free meal. The camaraderie of dining with like-minded patrons is a key factor in the design of WFD. Ms. Miller gives tips on successfully replicating a positive dining experience and provides language to dialogue with chefs and restaurant management so that other restaurant doors open to allergic diners. "It is a pleasure to be in the company of other people with similar food intolerances. I enjoy sharing information and learning from others. I love that I don't have to worry about my meal and I can just relax."  Ruth K.
