Simple answer?: Avoid peanuts. Avoid them like the plague. Avoid foods that may have even the slightest dusting of peanut on them.

Peanut allergy: The only treatment for true peanut allergy (ige to peanut) is strict avoidance. Playing russian roulette with any peanut (or tree nut) allergy is dangerous. Periodic exposures tend to become more vigorous and rapid with each event. On the bright side, several centers are researching oral desensitization in the highly allergic. Epinephrine should be carried for treating anaphylactic emergencies.See 1 more doctor answer

Not yet: Unfortunately, there is not yet a "cure" for peanut allergy. Avoidance is the main treatment. If exposure occurs, an Epi-pen should be used for serious reactions. There are studies ongoing with peanut allergy treatment - involves feeding increasing amounts of peanuts to patient over time.

Storage proteins: Seeds, legumes, and nuts all contain storage proteins. They are similar and you can have cross reaction between all of them. So if you are primarily allergic to cashew (which is a tree nut), you may also react to peanut (a legume), or even sesame seed (a seed).
Mgt: I agree that asking the restaurant is important to determine the ingredients. Very often the cooking area and dining area can be a source of cross contamination. For example a shared utensil, salad dressing with peanuts. I would suggest asking your PCP about an Epi Pen.See 1 more doctor answer
