Now, more than ever, is the time to support the local restaurants and businesses we love! As a team, we put together a list of our favorite, local restaurants that cater to dietary needs, and serve up delicious and healthy options all year long. As the year progresses, and weather changes, check in with the restaurants on the list to see what their updated dining options are. Note: if you have a serious allergy, or cross contamination is a big concern for you, call the restaurant ahead of time and see if they have special procedures they put in place that can guarantee a safe experience for you.
