My Cheesecake factory peanut allergy experience

Page 1 of 5Next

OHHH, if only I had a cheesecake factory around! Lucky you, only I think instead of not having room for dessert, I would skip dinner and just have dessert!!!

How timely. I heard were getting one in the Burlington Mall! Good to know theyre allergy-aware.

They make some really groovy omlets, and their cheesecake with hot fudge is divine. But their portions are so big, frankly I can never eat dessert when I go there.

For the New Yorkers here, S&S Cheesecake is peanut and tree nut free. The factory is close to my home, and Ive been there and spoken with the staff. They make only two products- plain cheesecake and chocolate mousse cake.My daughter has eaten it with no problem several times, and it is out of this world. Its kosher, too.

We go there a lot and my son always gets a grilled cheese and fries and has never had any problems. The manager always comes out and they also always bring A.J. a plate of orange slices and bananas to tide him over until his food gets there. They call it the ""baby plate."" He has also eaten the sourdough bread brought to the table without any problems.

Nava,

Would you mind contacting me off-board to tell me where S&S is? I think I know, but Im not sure if Im confusing it with another great cheesecake place.

Thanks a bunch!

Amy

He advised us to stay away from any of the Asian items and stated that there were certain cheesecakes that were nut free. He couldnt say if they were peanut safe, so we did not risk it. We were too stuffed anyway for dessert.[/b]

could you share which one you ate at? We live in the Chicago area.

I was unable to eat at a Cheesecake Factory in Boston and another one in Phoenix. Their menu was too riddled with peanut items.

On another note: you have to be extremely careful with desserts at restaurants/cafes, even if they say the dessert itself is nut or peanut free. If there are desserts with nuts/peanuts on the menu, you need to ask for a slice of NEW/UNCUT dessert using a NEW/CLEAN utensil. Ive worked at a few restaurants, and cutting knives and such get reused and thus, cross-contaminate an otherwise safe dessert. Its the same notion as the icecream scoop/new carton method.

completely understand. restaurant waitstaff veteran here. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img] I mean, [i]wonder how many folk would *still* eat out if they had the same experience. [/i] [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/tongue.gif[/img]

my husband always consults with me prior to ordering. I mean, for pointers. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/cool.gif[/img] Sometimes, he orders, I flash him a look, and he tells the waiter, ""Scratch that, give me another five minutes..."" and we consult again. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img] I mean, allergies aside, there are certain things I just stay away from or wouldnt order. [i]mwhahahahahaha[/i].

yeah...after working in food service (fast food, coffee shop, fancy dessert cafe, 5 star restaurant) you really see some things that make you go, ""wow, I am never eating out again"". Latex sanitary gloves? dont really make a difference if you ask me...

anyway, yeah, ""shudder""
