There is a ton of fantastic food on the Cape, as we’ve touched on in earlier posts, but what about people who have a limited diet? We all probably know someone who deals with the challenge of a food allergy or sensitivity (myself included.) It’s not easy seeing lists of mouthwatering possibilities at restaurants and knowing you can’t enjoy most of them. Luckily, there’s a growing number of restaurants that accommodate those of us with special food issues.
Del Mar, Chatham
