My family and I just returned from a quick dinner out. (I'm very tired after a day at the beach so please forgive me if this rambles.) We went to the 99 Restaurant (NE chain) in Woburn at "4 corners". The 99's chain has long been on our "safe" list.
After notifiying our server of dd's PA and ordering her a grilled cheese sandwich the manager came over. He let us know in no uncertain terms that the only item on the menu that was safe for her was the macaroni and cheese, becuase it comes pre-packaged and is made by Stouffer's. He said that there were many nut products back in the kitchen and that there is a strong likelyhood of cross-contamination.
After reassuring my husband and I that he would oversee her meal being heated and placed in a bowl, we did let her eat, but we won't be going back. Out of my comfort zone now.
As I stated, we've eaten at the 99's many, many times, but nevertheless, I wanted to put this out there.
Thanks for listening!
