It is Black History month and we are so excited to amplify the voices of some local black-owned restaurants while feeding our gluten free community! Seattle has a small but mighty gluten free restaurant community so we included other POC restaurants that cater to gluten free dietary restrictions. These amazing restaurants are delicious no matter what month it is, but we especially wanted to shine a well-deserved light on their incredible gluten free food during black history month.
