Celiac

I called the day before and asked to speak to a manager and asked if they could recommend any items that were least likely to be cross-contaminated as they offer gluten free items on their menu but are not a dedicated restaurant. They said that they did not recommend sandwiches, even on the gluten free bread, as they toast it on the same burner as their regular bread and gluten containing ingredients. They recommended The Bowl Formerly Known As, Whirley Bowl, or the Açaí Breakfast Bowl. They also noted they could wash the pans. When I got there, I followed up and the two team members I spoke to on the phone were working and remembered me; when I confirmed to ask if they could wash the dishes, they went to confirm with the kitchen team that they could do it—they said they could because it was not super busy. I ordered The Bowl Formerly Known As—independent of gluten free, I would give the dish 5 stars. My friend had the pancakes and, while the presentation was beautiful, they looked very heavy/undercooked and my friend was not as excited after a few bites in; this, included with the fact that it is not really safe for celiac, is why I gave it 3 stars. Also, while I did not find that I experienced any noticeable change in symptoms, looking at all the components and the size of the restaurant, it is unlikely they are able to prevent cross contamination as they do have gluten containing ingredients in many of their items, including pastries.
