“Gluten” has become a bit of a buzzword lately. Kourtney Kardashian refuses to eat it (tbt to that entire episode), but more importantly restaurants are realizing the importance of catering to their customers who actually can’t eat it aka not Kourtney. Whether you’re affected by celiac disease, gluten intolerant, or just looking for a lifestyle change that doesn’t include the G-word, these Western New York restaurants have some of the best gluten-free options around.
