We travel to 150+ events every year throughout the US & Canada!When we’re traveling to events, we love to check out the best allergy-friendly spots to eat, stay and play. We want to share these spots with you so you can eat freely and feel comfortable visiting a new city. Check out our very first city guide: Worcester, MA!

Eat

Flying Rhino Cafe & Watering Hole

278 Shrewsbury Street
Worcester, MA 01604
Phone: (508) 757-1450

A cozy hangout tucked away in downtown Worcester where you can opt to dine inside, outside on the patio, or in the bar area. Flying Rhino’s dedicated gluten-free fryer took the stress out of ordering delicious appetizers — our favorites included truffle fries and chili tots! Staff members were well-trained on allergy-friendly eating and answered all of our questions about the gluten-free menu. Looking for a tasty drink? The bar stocked Wende’s favorite gluten-free cider!

Favorite menu items: Roasted Chicken & Risotto and Zen Rice Bowl.

Nebo Cucina & Enoteca

Boston, MA 02210Worcester_Nebo
Phone: (617) 723-6326

We highly recommend heading to the city to grab a bite to eat on the Boston Harbor with an amazing view of downtown! It’s only 30 minutes from where we stayed in Worcester. We went crazy over Nebo’s crispy, gluten-free pizza crust that’s made in a separate allergy-friendly facility.

 

Stay

DoubleTree by Hilton – Westborough

5400 Computer Drive
Westborough, MA 01581
Phone: (508) 366-5511

Upon declining the typical Hilton Walnut Cookie at check-in due to our tree nut allergies, the accommodating hotel staff member brought out certified gluten-free & nut-free chocolate chip cookies for us. Our rooms came equipped with mini refrigerators to store the food we brought (the Framingham Whole Foods Market is nearby!) in case we were unable to find safe nearby options. The communal microwave in the lobby made it easy to warm up leftovers from the restaurants we visited!

You can’t visit the Boston area and not pay a visit to the Boston Harbor. We snapped this photo after eating at Nebo: All in all, we had an AMAZING time in the Boston area! We hope to be back for another gluten-free and allergy-friendly expo to meet more of our amazing fans.
