Deciding where to go for a gluten-free meal can have everything to do with a restaurant's dessert selection. If all it offers is ice cream, sorbet, crème brulee, or berries with cream, then it probably won't make the cut. Gluten-free diners want creative desserts layered with texture and flavor that require a fork to enjoy. Check this north-to-south map of real gluten-free desserts offered at 12 Atlanta-area restaurants.
