In Exton, Appetites on Main (286 Main St., 610-594-2030) has chicken fingers, wings, burgers and sandwiches on its new gluten-free-friendly menu. I'm told that the fried items are prepared separately.

American brasserie XIX (Nineteen), located at the Hyatt at the Bellevue in Center City Philadelphia (200 S. Broad St., 215-790-1919) offers many gluten-free options and serves bread as well. (Thanks to reader Brian K.)

Look for a new gluten-free-friendly food truck to frequent University City by this time next month. Breakfast at Jerry's Kitchen includes tofu scramble and omelettes with goat cheese, bacon, arugula and carmelized onions, while a black bean & quinoa burger, pulled chicken sandwich and other sandwiches on gluten-free bread wll be available at lunch. Gluten-free orders will be prepared separately.

Coming late next year to the Uptown Worthington complex in Malvern is a deluxe movie theater with a second-floor dine-in section. Similar CinĂ©Bistros in Atlanta, Miami and other locations list gluten-free choices on the menus.

CLIF Bar recently introduced several gluten-free protein bars under its MOJO line. The new varieties are Dark Chocolate Almond Sea Salt, Dark Chocolate Cherry Almond, Coconut Almond Peanut, Cranberry Almond and Wild Blueberry Almond. All are kosher and non-GMO.

Select Wegmans markets in the area are stocking Goodbye Gluten sandwich breads, which I reviewed in Tuesday's post.

CHOP's Celiac Support Group will meet on Sunday, June 29 in the Specialty Care Center in Voorhees (1012 Laurel Oak Rd.) from noon to 2 p.m. Food and beverages will be provided. Feel free to bring a dish and recipe to share.

Congrats to all of the dads and grads!
