After a day in DC, I took the red line Metro to Bethesda to stay overnight for the DC Gluten-Free Expo the following day. There, I stopped at Jaleo in the Bethesda Row shopping complex for a nice dinner. This Jose Andres restaurant (also of Beefsteak and Oyamel fame) like others in the group is really allergen-friendly, and brought out a fully marked menu identifying multiple allergens in every dish.
Because the menu is quite extensive, this post contains the full allergen menu in its entirety. Know that certain menu items might have changed since I visited, and that sometimes specials can be modified to be safe for particular allergies.
Always inform your server of your dietary needs, because they still need to relay them to the chef so that hidden ingredients can be taken out if need be and to prevent cross contamination.
Consider this a preview of coming attractions, as my full review of dinner at Jaleo will be posted shortly (and a link will be attached here).
