Our toddler had a severe reaction to peanuts and has been diagnosed with a severe allergy requiring complete avoidance (including risks of cross-contamination). We used to regularly go out to eat all around, but now have to be more careful since accidental ingestion can be fatal.

If anyone here is in a similar situation(themselves or their children), are you familiar with restaurants that are safe, both in terms of food and their handling practices? North suburbs or City is best for us.

Thanks in advance!

I don't mean to be a downer, but it sounds like eating restaurant prepared food might not be the best idea for your child. I don't mean to generalize, but servers and kitchen staff can be absentminded, careless, and ill informed.

While it might not be ideal, why not bring along your own packed food for him or her? Perhaps you could make it something special, so the dining experience will be fun for him or her even though the food is not ordered off the menu.
