DS will be moving in about 2 weeks, so I thought I'd ask here for some recommendations.  This is SOAK, after all.  ;)

There is a Burton's Grill outside of Boston.  They are very good with food allergies.

Burton's Grill - multiple locations in MA
Legal Seafood
Bertucci's

Cakes by Erin in Haverhill is pn/tn free

Flatbread Pizza...they do have sesame oil in their salad dressing, but can order oil and vinegar that is brought to the table.  Will cook pizza on foil in the pizza oven.  I think there are some locations in MA.

Twist Cafe in Millis, MA

I've heard good things about this place...

I think there is also a bakery in Danvers, MA that is safe.

I posted on my NH allergy mom's group to see if anyone has any other suggestions, will post if I get any.

Not Your Average Joe's was suggested on my NH allergy site, as well as Ming's Blue Ginger.

Oh, he is really excited about Blue Ginger.  Not having Chinese food bugs him more than anything else.  :)

Chef Ming is amazing!

Really, anywhere we eat is good about allergies.....training required by law has made changes for the better.  Even our local hole in the wall places including Mexican are good.  I still won't trust a food court though.

If he doesn't mind - chef's cards are always appreciated and make everything so much easier for the staff.  We just print our own so they can stay with the order in the kitchen and do not need to be returned.

If he wants a chain type place - Cheesecake Factory and Legal top our list and top prices too.  TGI Fridays, 99's and Joe's American Bar and Grill are good and DD goes to UNO with her friends and is treated well.  We love burgers at the MET Bar and Grill!

And Twist is OMG!  It is gluten free and expensive....but oh so very very good!  I've had lunch and breakfast as well as buying way to many bakery yummies!

Chef Ming is the best!  I have had the pleasure of meeting him and of attending a cooking demo he did as a fundraiser.

Because of DD's garlic allergy, Bertucci's has very few options for DD and the 3 locations we tried were even put out at serving her pasta with butter and a salad without croutons, but the Chateau is Italian and they have always been really really good!  and very careful!

There really are many choices!

Not Your Average Joe's is our favorite family place, but they are good for adult dining and drinks as well. 

I am not sure about the very specific area where your ds will be living, but in general, there are many smaller independent eateries that students frequent in that general area, so it may be a case by case discovery process.  Lots of Irish pub places around and I find them to be pretty good about allergies, in general, as the cuisine is not typically nutty.  But there is the sesame issue with breads.
