Home cooks who may typically have the luxury of ignoring assorted dietary restrictions are frequently tested at the holidays, when guests come bearing all sorts of firmly-held food preferences.

Caviar & Bananas is wagering hosts may want to buy their way out of the situation: The downtown café has listed 11 gluten-free dishes on its Thanksgiving/Christmas take-out menu, including butternut squash soup, braised collard greens and mashed potatoes. It’s also offering vegetarian stuffing and vegan succotash. Caviar & Bananas is asking customers to place entrée orders four days in advance of pick-up; accompaniments may show up in the store’s display case, but customers who want to avoid disappointment should call in their choices at least two days before pick-up.

None of Caviar & Bananas’ holiday pies are classified as gluten-free, but Sweet Radish Bake Shop is offering a full roster of pies, cakes, tortes and muffins, including a vegan pumpkin pie. The complete ordering guide is here.
