Dietary Issues

Dietary Issues
CDO welcomes members with dietary issues. Perhaps you are a vegetarian*, lactose-intolerant, can't eat gluten, only eat meat, food allergies etc. We welcome your participation. Quite often, the restaurant in question can put together a special plate just for you. Assume though, in the cases of our smaller dinners (less than 20 people) that we are still going to split the food bill evenly. You will pay for your own drinks as always. Restaurants are not always cooperative on giving people separate checks (although we can try). If you do have to have a special diet and/or a separate check for any reason, please contact the organizer ahead of time; so, that he or she can help arrange it for you. You can also contact the restaurant yourself to see if they are able to accommodate you food wise. For set menu dinners, again, restaurants can often create a special dinner just for you, but it will be at the same price as everyone else. The restaurant will need to know this in advance.

If anyone with a food restriction wants to organize a "vegetarian dinner" or something like that, please let me know. This is one way you can guarantee it's a menu that you can eat and get other people to join you.

*- You may or may not be aware of the Meetup groups dedicated to vegetarians like VegChicago and Raw Food groups. These groups are well run and very popular.
