This Examiner recently received a $50 gift card in the mail from Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse and Wine Bar. This is a new restaurant to the Atlanta dining scene (at least to me), so the next step was to contact them and figure out what is safe for those on the gluten-free diet. This Examiner likes steak as much as the next person, but there needs to be more on the menu to make it worth the trip even with the first $50 free.
There response is listed below and this Examiner is really looking forward to trying their gluten-free soups and seafood, but wishes there were some gluten-free bread and interesting dessert options on their menu. This Examiner wrote an article where restaurants were advised on how to create a successful gluten-free menu. It is vital for restaurants to ‘get creative’ and prepare a menu just for those on the gluten-free diet instead of modifying their current menu. We want gluten-free bread, pasta, breaded items, and dessert please!
Listed below is the gluten-free menu provided by Fleming’s and it can also be accessed on their website. We will try it out and report back. Has anyone been to this restaurant? What was your experience?
