For a Brit, visiting our 'cousins across the pond' would on the face of it seem one of the easier trips to make if looking for gluten free food. However, in a strange place it is often hard to find somewhere but rest assured, someone will have been there before.

We decided to split an egg salad sandwich, only we wanted to try it on a hoagie roll. They were all too happy to accommodate us. We had a seat and they brought it out when it was ready. Their bread is phenomenal! I was a bit jealous. Unlike some store bought breads that I've tried, these were soft and held together great.
Given that I'd originally planned on tapas for dinner, I ended up ordering two appetizers as my meal and chose the sweet corn risotto cakes with roasted poblano cream, corn and tomato salad and the shrimp diablo with a jicama orange salad. They were both delicious with the shrimp diablo being just the right amount of spicy and the risotto cakes being crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside. I must admit that this was an instance that I was so hungry that I forgot to ask about cross contamination issues with the risotto cakes, but I didn't have any negative effects afterward and for that I was very grateful. I would certainly encourage people to ask about these before ordering them but I'd guess that the menu will change shortly as their current menu seemed summer themed.
I can now say that in addition to having a great view, I can also recommend Fresco for their food. It would be a great location for happy hour if they had a happy hour menu. They are somewhat on the pricier side, but certainly in line with other similar restaurants downtown and the view is included. Enjoy!
The weird thing about eating in this restaurant is that you are inside a massive indoor area that is made to feel as though you are outside complete with a dusk sky. And because the area is so big and the "sky" is so far above you and beingabsorbed in our chatting and our eating, we sometimes forget that we were inside, except it always dusk.
Do try Lombardi's if you are in Vegas, even if you are not gluten free.
We battled our way to find a table for 4 in this tiny little restaurant and put our stuff down before ordering. The dishes can be ordered in 4 sizes: Nosh, Major Nosh, Mongo and Partay!. Being the overzealous eaters that my friends and I are at all the time, especially at new place, we ordered a whopping 5 Major Munches (the second size on the menu) with Gluten Free noodles for an extra 3.00 charge. Best of all, They also have gluten free Breadcrumbs! Although the extra charge is rather steep it's well worth it if you love a good dish of Mac and Cheese. All 5 dishes, which could feed 4 of us and then some, was 73$s. Not too bad!
All dishes are cooked in their own pan that is put directly in the oven. Each item had a distinguished and unique flavor from the others although all were the perfect blend of creamy middle and 'crunchy' top and bottom shells from the cooking technique.
All in all S'MAC is a hit with me! S'MAC brings together a typical American Comfort food with a delightful twist. You will get your money's worth and your wait's worth eating here without a doubt, if you love that kind of thing anyway.

However, they did happen to mention they hadn't previously checked for gluten free options so it was with some trepidation that I asked if they had a gluten free menu. No, they didn't have a gluten free menu but the waitress had the most amazing knowledge and was able to take me through the menu and explain what was gluten free and also explain why other dishes were not. She also asked if I was a coeliac and when I said yes (looking a bit surprised as to why she would ask), she explained that extra attention is taken with the preparation of food for people with coeliac disease and allergies. The food is prepared in a separate area in the kitchen to avoid cross contamination! How impressive is that.
I ordered the Eggs Bella Donna, which was poached eggs with polenta, pancetta and tomato with a side of bacon from their gorgeous brunch menu. Wonderful food and fantastic service. Just a wee warning. This place does not take breakfast reservations and there is often a queue on the street to eat here. The day we came we were lucky enough to be seated immediately, so if you have plans straight after breakfast, get up a little earlier and come here so that you have the time to queue if needed. Believe me, it is worth it.
I have never had such an amazingly safe, friendly and carefree gluten free experience as the one I had in this restaurant. The waiter knew everything about everything, including eating gluten free. He knew about contamination, he knew about hidden gluten, he knew about not being able to eat anything fried with gluten, he knew about ingredients. And he knew about wine and he knew when to go away and he knew when to come back.
And the food was amazing. Delicate flavours, beautiful presentation and great American wine. Yes, American wine! We had 2 Spanish, 1 Mexican, 1 Costa Rican, 1 Kiwi and 1 English at the table and when it came to ordering wine there was a great debate over who had the best wine, New Zealand, Spain or Mexico. We all thought ours was the best so the waiter suggested an American wine. An American wine? Oh well, doesn't hurt to try new things but I was extremely skeptical. But as usual, I was proven wrong. Very wrong in fact. Sivas-sonoma Sauvignon Blanc was a close comparison to our very own and much loved and award winning Wither Hills.
Here you could choose your bun, salad type, meat (type and size), cheese type, other fillings and sauces. And then they custom build them for you. What a fantastic concept. They didn't have gluten free buns but they had "a burger in a bowl" which means exactly that. All of your burger ingredients are put into a bowl with your lettuce on the bottom. (I guess it really is a salad but I like the burger in a bowl idea.)
Ok, so there are no gluten free buns and I can eat it in a bowl, but what about the burger in a bowl ingredients? Well, I was extremely impressed. They had a list of ingredients, including the sauces, that contained gluten so it made eating gluten free carefree and tasty.
