i eas at this meet and greet for the local university in our aera and all the local buisness were there including "the whole in the wall" resturant. they are a whole food resturant and i always wanted to go there but with my sons allergies we just dont.

i found the person who i beleive is the owner and i start asking him about weather or not the food contains peanuts or tree nuts and i explane about my sons alergies. and he assures me that they dont have anything with peanuts and only the humus has tree nuts, but they are aware of how cross contamation happens and they are very careful.
now the girl that was sitting at the table pipes up and says that she has a peanut allergy and she has never had a problem eating there. and the manager glares at her and says that she isnt careful enough with her allergy because she dosnt have an eppi pen! she rolls her eyes and says that she will pick one up tommrow and he says thats not good enough.

it was refreshing to hear that someone other that a parent actualy cares about food alergies, he actualy sounded mad that she stoped carrying her eppi pen becaus it had expired. it was nice to hear.

the resturant name is "The Whole in The Wall" resturant located in Binghamton NY (south side)
i will defently go there. plus the samples of the food they were passing out were realy good.
just wanted to share some good news about a responsable resturant in my aera.

Wow! They even mention on their webpage
"We are also happy to accommodate any special dietary needs." which sounds so welcoming to families who aren't used to being welcomed!!
Great find!
