Heading to Baltimore next weekend - does anyone know of any peanut-free (or at least allergy-aware) restaurants there? My 2 year old is allergic to peanuts and eggs.

Thanks!

Le Poulet is in Lutherville ... it is completely peanut-free as the owner has children with nut allergies - their website is poulettogo.com. I know other people have posted about this restaurant, you may want to run a search for the name.
Also, we have eaten at Carrabba's Italian Grill (sp?)in Columbia (about 20 min from Balt.) They are peanut-free (though not nut-free) but they are allergy aware. Ask to speak to the manager and he will walk you through the items that are safe.
Also Jordan's Steakhouse in Ellicott City is a good brunch option. Again, the owner (jordan) has two children with nut allergies and seemed allergy aware. My son ordered eggs and potatoes that the owner personally supervised and used all new, clean utensils and pans to make. Very good experience.
I would avoid Copelands (Columbia) and Macaroni Grill - we have had bad experiences there.

The places we go to regularly are Bertucci's (there's one on York Rd. in Timonium), Poulet, Red Robin (Owings Mills and Columbia), Tony Romas (Owings Mills), Baja Fresh (various locations), Chipoltle (various locations). There's also a locally owned Mexican place called Nino Taco (Owings Mills and I think two other locations) that uses no nuts (except for one dessert that is prepackaged).
Where in Baltimore will you mainly be?

Does anyone know if Red Robin cooks their fries in a dedicated fryer?
DS has milk and egg allergies, in addition to the PA/TNA. We rarely eat out. It would be great to have another option besides McD's!

I've raised a couple of threads for you--one in Off Topic and one in Travel. They contain broader allergy into and some specific peanut info.
Baltimore is such a wonderul place. I hope you have fun.

Camden Yards. Not familiar with the area so not exactly sure where this is.

Are you going to an Oriole's game? That would definately be a place where there will be plenty of peanuts and shells around. Be careful!
If you are in the inner harbor, there is a Chipoltle, Legal Seafoods (not nut free but they are very allergy aware), ESPN zone (they do have some nut things but my son has safely eaten there a few times).
Also, the Maryland Science Center has an eatery where if someone orders PB&J, they get an Uncrustable which comes prepackaged (thereby keeping the kitchen safer).
Scooby, to answer your question about Red Robin, I do not know about their fries (whether or not they are in a dedicated fryer or for that matter, if they contain milk). I do know that they do not use peanut oil.
Good luck!
