    The donut I had here was unbelievably good! However, they don't have a dedicated fryer so I did have a reaction right after eating it (didn't know there was no dedicated fryer until someone told me way after I had already eaten the delicious donut). So it's not celiac friendly, but if you have an intolerance or if you are looking to cut out gluten, you would probably be fine. Also, this information is listed on their website, but I didn't think to look there before eating a fantastic donut (palm slap to forehead). They are made from an almond flour blend, so the dough is really moist and cake-y.

    Amazing gluten free buns! I would highly suggest the roasted beet burger, it was fantastic. This is my favorite place to get a burger in the city!

    The waiters are trained on what items can be prepared gluten free. They have home made sesame rice crackers that they can give you for certain appetizers, and they are super good. My favorite salad is Goi Atiso: crab meat salad, with tomatoes, sesame and tamarind dressing. For dinner I like Bo Sate: sautéed diced filet mignon with sate spice, yams, and string beans. This place is incredible.

    The menu has gluten free items denoted by an asterisk. I had "salad de poire" to start which was a green salad with grilled pears, pistachios, blue cheese, dries cranberries, and red beat vinaigrette. Which was fantastic. For dinner I had "poulet roti" which was brined and roasted chicken, also delicious. The atmosphere is great here, and the wine list provides many wonderful options. Great place for a date.

    If you have been on a gluten free diet for a long time, and it has been YEARS since you've had a donut... This donut is TOTALLY worth the calories! Had the chocolate glaze, it was delicious. My cousin had a bite she said it was better than the regular donut.
