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.

The Yard House has two restaurants in Las Vegas. The closest one to the Las Vegas Strip is at the Town Square Mall, which is walkable from the Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas Sign. You can also get there easily on the SDX Bus. They serve a great range of Steaks (I always go for the Rib Eye with Garlic Mashed Potato) and they also stock Redbridge Gluten Free Beer. The staff are knowledgeable about Gluten Free options. We've dined there on both of our visits to Las Vegas and have enjoyed the food and atmosphere each time.

The service was excellent. We were seated immediately. The staff was very pleasant and attentive. After we ordered our coffee, I asked our waitress about appropriate gluten-free options. She was able to point out every item on the menu off the top of her head, which was suitable or could easily be modified for my food allergy. Except for the obvious villains of fried chicken, pancakes, toast etc, I could have everything else on the menu and they were happy to make substitutions of home fries instead of toast.
My friend ordered the buttermilk-fried chicken served with flash-fried kale. I ordered the goat cheese omelet with beets and beet greens. We split an order of fresh, homemade sausages.
You eat with the eyes first, right? When our dishes were put down in front of us, we were both just happy to stop and look at the food for a minute. The plating is simple and really restrained, but appealing. My omelet was incredible. The beet greens were perfectly cooked, just a little bit crispy. I loved that they retained just a touch of bitterness, which was a nice counterpoint to the sweet beets and the creamy omelet. The goat cheese was rich and tangy. The potatoes were great; some were a bit crispy and others just perfectly soft. The sausages were really good. They had a simple, salt and pepper flavor to them. They were savory without being thirst inducing. I liked that some came out as patties and others as more traditional links. They were a fantastic complement to the omelet.
After we filled ourselves to the brim, the waitress brought over some beautiful Madeline's with our bill. I asked if they were ok for me to eat. She said no, but she would be right back. She returned moments later with two small meringue cookies. They were so cute and were the perfect accompaniment for my last cup of coffee.
The prices here are very reasonable, especially considering the quality of the meal, the great service and wonderful jazz music. It worked out to be about 3 dollars more than brunch at the Cheesecake Factory. Worth every penny (and more). This is a really special restaurant and I can't wait to go back for dinner.

The service and hospitality at this restaurant were outstanding. The staff are accomodating to food allergies and gluten free dining. Vimala personally visited with us at our table and even treated us to samplings of their delicious fish stew, gluten free brownie, and these yummy carrot cookies called Gaajar Halwa.

This restaurant is not exclusively gluten free; they serve a regular menu to most of their customers. The gluten free menu however is the most extensive I have ever seen at an Italian restaurant serving regular "glutenous" food. The restaurant is beautiful inside and the staff is super friendly and are always willing to bend over backwards to make gluten free accommodations. They said nothing about me bringing my own dessert.
I like to try a lot of different things my first time at a restaurant which generally results in everyone sampling with me or lots of take home boxes. For my first time here, I tried the Formaggio Wedges, Calamari Fritti, and Ravioli Gratinate. Each dish was absolutely amazing. The ravioli dish would be one of those dishes. It looked amazing (cheese perfectly browned and melted), each ravioli the perfect shape without a hint of stuffing gone, smelled other worldly, tasted like nothing I have had before. I don't remember regular ravioli ever being this good. The calamari and cheese wedges also lived up to my memory of what non-gluten free Italian used to taste like. The calamari has a light flaky slightly crunchy breading that I could have sworn was made with real flour. The squid was cooked perfectly, not at all rubbery like some restaurants. The cheese wedges were equally amazing with a light crunchy bread crumb crust and cheese that melted in your mouth. This would definitely have to be one of my best gluten free Italian meals ever in eight years.
This is now my new go to restaurant for gluten free Italian food. If you are in the area, you MUST try this place.
We were not disappointed on arrival to the restaurant where we were first escorted to the bar to wait for 5-10 minutes as our table was being prepared. The bar is well kitted out from top to bottom with a showcase of spirits, beers and wines all beautifully presented. We were not at the bar long before being seated in the blue section of the restaurant. The other areas were all just as full, but we were happy to be in the main dining area and not pushed off to the side.
Our waiter was extremely helpful throughout the night and explained to me what I could and could not eat. We ordered a selection of plates to share across the table, some of which were not gluten free. The food was very well presented and tasted amazing, but with one flaw. There was not much on the plate to eat and for the money it costed we felt a little cheated. Okay, I will not lie I felt completely cheated. For me the whole "food art" concept is great in theory, but is stupid in practice. I was very hungry when I arrived and even more so by the time I left.
All in all Buddakan was great fun to go and experience for a night, but I would not be a regular. I love my food and when I am hungry you need to feed me. My advice is go there to check out the architecture of the building, experience the atmosphere and enjoy a small bite to eat, but do not expect a feast. It's a small treat for the senses.
The club itself is a very intimate setting where the tables surround the stage in a tiered format. We were seated in the middle where we could soak up the great jazz performances and even a little comedy on the side. Our waitress was extremely helpful and navigated me through the menu from which I ordered the salmon dish. Accompanying our meals were more fantastic cocktails. You can say we truly drank up New York's finest selection of mixes.
Overall the food was fresh, delicious and satisfying. It was not the best meal I had in NYC, but that's only because I am comparing it to everything I ate now. What sets Birdland apart is that it provides you not only with great food, but you get to sit back and take it all in whilst watching some of the world's most talented jazz artists perform. You come out feeling relaxed, calm and begging to never leave the city.
The restaurant has three locations in Manhattan including Lincoln Centre, First Avenue and Union Square. We headed to the Lincoln Centre restaurant purely because it was up the road from where we were staying. I think we were all impressed upon entering Rosa Mexicano. At the reception is a gigantic wall flowing with water and tiny little divers. We were escorted upstairs to our table in the main dining area, which was packed with diners.
Our first order for the night was the house special of guacamole and corn chips. The guacamole gets made at your table and it does not only look amazing, it tastes delicious also. We ordered mains after this, accompanied by beautiful cocktails. All the mains were large portions, bursting with flavours and best of all I had gluten free options. The gluten free menu made it super easy for me to choose without the hassle of all the questions. I really enjoyed my main of mixed grill brochette, which consisted of beef skewers with chorizo sausage, onions, tomatoes and Serrano peppers. It was served on a bed of rice with tomatillo and tomato-chipotle sauces. However, I did struggle to finish it, but that may have been because I stuffed my face with guacamole before hand. It was just all so good and had been sorely missed, until now.
You really cannot go wrong eating gluten or lactose free at Rosa Mexicano. My advice if you are in New York is to get your butt to one of the three locations because it is well worth the trip for not only the food and cheap prices, but also the experience.
