In a situation like this I would certainly just eat what they serve, but when does it become acceptable to make special food requests? Often for larger gatherings, invitations specifically ask about dietary needs, e.g. vegetarianism. Since a lot of people are vegetarian for real or imagined health reasons, isn't it just as acceptable for me to request no grains (for Paleo reasons, or maybe I could be celiac) or no sugars (I could be diabetic)? I'm curious what you guys think.
