I’m usually not a fan of hauling ass to the UES on a cold, misty day. However, if it means seeing the lovely faces of friends or eating delicious vegan food (where they usually are well versed on GF grub), I’ll make an exception.
As expected, they had a gluten-free menu and I wasn’t shot a nasty look by the waiter for asking for it. It was like taking a xanax for my dining out anxiety – so relaxing.
Barbecue Tempeh served over horseradish creme fraiche, potato salad w/ roasted corn and avocado (gluten-free): Licked the plate clean – literally. OK not literally - but I could have. It was that good. I’m beginning to love vegan food more & more each day.
BLT w/ crispy fried tofu, tempeh bacon, lettuce & tomato: Clearly not my order. That bun is loaded with gluten. I have never had vegan bacon and wanted to try a piece, but was informed it was not GF.
Drunken Fruit Parfait layers of brandy infused peach & mango, pecan oat crumble, port infused blue & blackberries, topped with vanilla cream (gluten-free): The one dessert listed as GF which is rather deceptive since I am pretty sure a few of the other options were as well. Good – but not as good as this looked….
