Executive chef and owner Chris Todd prides his restaurant on serving customers with food allergies and intolerances.

Christopher’s restaurant and FEAST, a local allergy support group, will host their first allergy-friendly dinner on Tuesday, January 17th at 5:30 pm. Reservations are required and the dinner will be suitable for adults and children. FEAST (Food and Environmental Allergy Support Team) of the Main Line is a support group for parents of food allergic children.

“Eating in restaurants is difficult for many allergy families, ” said Jean Kintisch, leader of FEAST. “This is a great opportunity to enjoy the experience in a safer environment.”

On this special night, the ingredients of every dish will be listed, Chef Christopher Todd and Jean Kintisch will speak about how to eat safely in restaurants, and participants will enjoy a meal knowing that the kitchen understands the special needs of allergic patrons.

“Our restaurant has always been accommodating to those with special dietary concerns,” said Todd. “Our staff is fully trained to work with all types of food allergies and dietary restrictions. Our menu offers nut-free, gluten-free and soy-free items and we work with each guest to make sure they are taken care of. We look forward to partnering with FEAST for this unique opportunity.”

Space is very limited at the January 17th dinner. If there is enough interest, another allergy-friendly meal will be planned in the near future.

Please call Christopher’s at 610-687-6558 to make reservations. Christopher’s is located at 108 North Wayne Avenue in Wayne, PA. christophersaneighborhoodplace.com.

    This is so great! We actually used to eat out quite a bit and enjoyed Christopher’s, but when we had to strictly avoid wheat and soy it became difficult to find safe places to enjoy meals. I’m so glad one of our old favorites is leading the way on this issue!

    restaurants have to realize that a soy allergy is a soy allergy. gluten intolorence is completely different.one in 4 people have a soy allergy or intollorence that’s a lot of customers virtually all vegetable oil in the fryer is always soy oil however canola oil is usually allergy free. christophers uses soy oil in the fryer so no French fries with that burger. we love this restaurant but wish they could take the lead to change.
