gluten-free newport

More people than ever are choosing a gluten-free lifestyle for personal preference or health issues. While there are many Newport restaurants that can prepare food gluten-free, the following is a good look at those restaurants that have many gluten-free items available and/or offer an entire gluten-free menu.
