Which restaurants should come with an Allergy Alert?

Welcome! If you’re on this page, then you must be the parent of a child with a serious food allergy. Thank you for stopping by.

You’ll note there are no restaurants with an allergy alert listed so far—that’s because I just launched my site. But if you love food as much as I do, and are excited to see this project take off, I’d love your help! Here’s what you can do:

1. Share what you know. You’ve probably already compiled your own informal list of safe (and not-so-safe) eating spots in the city. If you have a moment, I’d love it if you could tell me about them by filling out this form. (Don’t worry, it will only take 2-3 minutes per restaurant.)

2. Volunteer your time. If you love to eat out and want to do some digging while you’re dining, get in touch! I’m looking for foodies who have time to visit the various restaurants in their ‘hoods to see which AllergyBites category they fit into.

3. Follow my blog. I’ll be sharing anecdotes, tips and relevant news pieces from time to time. I’ll also be featuring guest bloggers and local parents who want to share their stories. And, most importantly, I’ll be posting updates on the progress of this site. (All you need to do is click on the ‘plus’ sign on the bottom righthand corner of my blog and submit your email address. You can unsubscribe at anytime!)

Thanks for your interest in AllergyBites!

    Good question, Which restaurant should come with an allergy alert?

    Anyone that uses peanut oil to fry (does anyone in Canada still do that?) or any restaurant that has a giant barrel of free peanuts at the door with shells splattered all over (Five Guys burger or some pubs).

    While we have to deal with more allergies than just peanuts, I think those two things are seriously dangerous to unsuspecting people.

      Hi Steve, very good points! Thanks for sharing. 🙂 Apparently, Five Guys still uses peanut oil. And the peanut shells all over–shudder!–definitely a spot to avoid!!
