Ask for a gluten-free menu

Posted on November 26th, 2007 by Alison Read 5 Comments - Add Your Own »

Just in case I have any loyal fans out there (anyone? anyone?) who are wondering why I haven’t been writing as many posts as usual, it’s because I am extra busy at the moment.

I am doing a consulting job with a food distributor who is going to launch a gluten-free product catalog (and possibly dairy-free on my suggestion) for the restaurants who buy from them. Why are they doing this? Because restaurants are asking them for gluten-free products. Why are restaurants asking for them? Because customers are asking for them! So keep going to restaurants and asking for a gluten-free menu — even if you know that the restaurant doesn’t have one. Your voices are being heard!

And, if you are a manufacturer and think that your products would be good in the foodservice industry, please let me know via email:

  5. On a recent business trip to Jacksonville, FL I was pleasantly surprised that the restaurants we selected 3 nights in a row were Celiac friendly!

    Bonefish – has a gluten-free menu

    AquaFish – doesn’t have a gluten-free menu, BUT did have a chef who lived gluten-free so they were able to clearly explain what I could and could not eat.

    Mitchell’s Fish Market (a Cameron Mitchell restaurant) -has a gluten-free menu. They weren’t able to guarantee the item I selected would be gluten-free that evening and made a suggestion for substitution.

    I was thrilled with the options and customer care afforded to me!
