Every group of friends has one. We're talking, of course, about the tribe of Paleo dieters who have gone pre-Amish in their old-fashioned eating style. Or to be exact, the Paleolithic era.This caveman-inspired diet—eschewing grains, dairy, legumes, and processed foods—was first popularized in the 1970s and has seen such a recent resurgence that we're half expecting the Geico commercials to make a comeback. Not to mention, many in the gluten-free crowd basically follow a similar diet. So whether you eat like a carnivorous caveman or not, it's definitely worth knowing where to go to grab the best Paleo-friendly meals across the country. Lucky for you, we've gathered the most lip-smacking options in the U.S.
Here are some of the highlights of our list: New York City’s Hu Kitchen offers many Paleo options. Verde Cocina Café in Portland, Oregon serves up healthy Mexican food all entirely gluten-free. One of the highlights about following a Paleo diet is the amount of delicious meats one can consume. At Buenos Aires Café in Austin, Texas, the “Parillada” (grilled meat plate for two) is served with vegetables. Los Angeles favorite Gjelina offers a wide range of mindfully sourced small plate dishes at their rustic, wood-accented space.
