    Atmosphere lends itself perfectly to a date night spot. Knowledgeable staff, lots of GF options! My husband and I enjoyed the cocktails, especially the fat duck old fashioned and the campeon. We ordered the shrimp and cuttlefish ceviche, arroz cremoso, a crispy Brussels sprouts dish (all were generous tapas size) and the pato al pastor as our entree to share. It was WAY too much food but everything was divine. I think next time we'd share one or two (if we were having trouble deciding between the tapas) tapas/ appetizers and split the pato al pastor. All in all, we plan on going back soon. It was incredible - from the welcome drink to the exceptional service to a meal I can't stop thinking about (it's been a few weeks). Oh and they also brought out a small gluten free fudge cake thing for dessert since it was my birthday. It is tucked away behind Taco Bamba, fyi.

    Upscale Mexican restaurant by chef Victor Albisu. Delicious ceviche, mole (many types, some were gf), octopus, high quality meats, and various corn based dishes. While the menu is not marked gf, many items are gf and/or can be modified. The restaurant also has a dedicated part of the grill/fire for celiac guests and the chef and staff were incredibly knowledgeable about cross-contamination issues. They walked me through the entire menu to let me know which items were safe to eat. About 2/3 of the menu is gf or can be gf.
