    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    WebMD Message Boards Management - A Food Allergy Friendly Restaurant Guide
    AllerDine posted: is a fact-based website that gathers the food allergy practices of each restaurant and provides you, the allergic community with the facts about these restaurants. Since everyone's allergies are different, has provided the information you need to start dining out. Does the restaurant have a formal allergy process, ingredients book, what is the kitchen layout and will they custom prepare a meal safely? These are the facts for over 1600 restaurants and growing. The website is free and has some great resources too for the allergic community.

    From your community admin:

    This is a shameless plug but I think we can all use restaurant guides, if they have relevant information. I did go check out the site but in the short scan I did it didn't help much. None of the restaurants I plugged in were listed at all - and I chose some chains, not mom and pops. Maybe the site is still young and will gain more info as it gathers steam - I'm going to leave this resource up in hopes that that is the case.

    I chose not to log in - don't know if it gets easier then.

    If you get a chance, go take a look and let us know what you think.

    Sorry about the shameless plug. First time on WebMD and thought your community could use our information. We don't list restaurants that we have not personally interviewed. We have 1600 restaurants reviewed across the country and Canada and are growing this list by around 50 to 100 per week. We interview and only provide the facts about a restaurant. Do they have a process, allergy list, what is their kitchen layout and will they custom prepare a meal for you safely. If there is a restaurant you want to add or learn about, you can click to add it and tell us who, we will do the work for you. We are very strict with the restaurants to ensure only the best are ranked high. We do also have many restaurants that are not great for allergies, as this also needs to be noted so we don't go there. Safe dining from your allergic friends at AllerDine.

    Like I said, it seems like a site we could all certainly use. Thanks for clarifying.
