Every pin on the map below comes from either this list of nut-free restaurants or this list of other places I like. For more information on those lists—and to catch up on all the disclaimers that come with them—please do click on those two links. The truncated version, though:
Some of these places truly are nut-free—in that they openly identify themselves as such, they require allergen statements from their vendors, etc. Some are incidentally nut-free, meaning that they have no nuts on-site, but they don’t do much in the way of ensuring against potential cross-contamination. And some have nuts on the menu but are capable of handling customers with nut allergies. Wondering which category a restaurant falls into? Refer to the lists I linked above, search this blog for an in-depth post, or (of course) ask me.
As with the rest of my blog, inclusion on the map below is dependent only on the ability to accommodate tree nut allergies. Many of the restaurants I’ve collected are peanut-free (or peanut allergy–friendly), too—but a restaurant’s being listed below does not mean it’s peanut-free.
Anyway. For practical reasons, I’ve chosen not to include a few of the bigger chains that are on the latter list. Everything else I’ve written about—as well as everything else I’ve listed—should be on there. (Chains not included: 7-Eleven, Burger King, Chipotle, Checkers, Taco Bell, Dominos, KFC, McDonald’s, Nathan’s Famous, Subway, Whole Foods, Wendy’s, and White Castle.)
Also, please forgive the inconsistent restaurant titling. It makes me twitch, but there’s nothing I can do about it. Google Maps does as Google Maps pleases.
