This was the restaurant chosen for my In-Laws Anniversary and as with any new restaurant I go to I get very nervous of how the meal will play out! They do not have a gluten free menu but the Waiter was knowledgeable and made the statement most items can be modified to be made gluten free. I am also a Pescatarian so my options were more limited then others may have been, Nonetheless I really enjoyed my meal. To start they have the most amazing gluten free bread that they bake fresh, I almost second guessed that if was actually GF because of how soft it was! For my small plate I ordered the Sea Scallops which came with grits and they tasted so amazing I ordered another portion. I had the Snapper as my meal with Mashed Potatoes and Asaragus, it was really tasty but it had to be modified from the original recipe to be gluten free so I think that it would probably go from tasty to amazing if made as intended. I felt highly taken care of at this restaurant down to giving me a square plate instead of a round one for my GF bread. The only reason I give Norman's 4 stars instead of 5 is because I was disappointed to find out the only GF dessert option was the sorbet. I feel that if restaurants of lesser standards can offer GF desserts then surely a restaurant as nice as this one can offer a little more then Sorbet for there GF guests. All in all, I was very happy with my experience and would definitely return!

If you want to feel normal and be treated like a queen/king, you need to go here. Prepare yourself for the special day when you can visit this fine establishment. Norman Van Aiken, a James beard award winner does not wince or shy away from the celiac. All the staff are impeccably trained and you will without a doubt have the best meal AND experience of your dining out life. Take it from me. A celiac chef.

Celiac friendly?
