Gluten-Free Minneapolis-Title

You may have seen our previous Austin gluten-free guide or Las Vegas gluten-free guide. These #nimatested restaurant guides were curated by our team members in those cities. How about the cities that we can’t visit?

Over the summer, we connected with some of our top community members to help curate city guides for their own cities.

Here’s our gluten-free Minneapolis dining guide, featuring the favorite #nimatested and approved meals at restaurants by Minnesota Nima community member Stephanie Anderson.
