There's a kosher bakery/restaurant in Manhattan called "Piece of Cake" which makes outrageously decadent and expensive baked goods. I picked up their take-out menu for a work related event, and when I got home, noticed a notation on the bottom which stated "This is a peanut-free environment." I stopped by today and spoke with the owner, who told me that due to an increase in peanut allergies, it was a "no-brainer" to make it peanut free. He stated he speaks with all his suppliers to assure that this is so. They do make several products with tree nuts. What do you think?

Unfortunately my son is also TNA so we won't be able to take advantage.
Out of curiousity - where is it?

Sounds great-I am only allergic to peanuts, so I would feel comfortable with the food their as long as they never have peanuts and make sure their suppliers are peanut-free too. Do they have a website?

how do they check that their tree nuts are not cross contaminated with peanut?
In the UK the nuts are all packed on shared lines with other nuts.
Also because of peanut becoming cheaper than almonds, peanut flour is added to the almond flour to make it cheaper. Another reason to avoid indian restaurants even if you are only allergic to peanut.
I would ask the place in question got some decent allergy advice, in catering training, or from , eg FAAN?

Another one bites the dust! I went by there last week, and it was closed.
