I’m recently diagnosed Celiac, and this is the first restaurant I’ve dared to go. I will say that their servers could use some food allergy training. Literally the first thing the server says when I asked if the chai tea latte was GF is, “Gluten is like wheat right? It should be fine.” I tried to clarify that I’m Celiac and that he would be surprised how many things contain gluten, and he says, “I’m not a dietitian so I wouldn’t know.” I had to ask him if he could check with the kitchen, which he really should’ve just done in the first place. It seems like the kitchen has better knowledge of Celiac because after he spoke to them, he was a lot more confident that our meal would be safe. Even so, he continued to show his lack of knowledge when we ordered our food. For example, my partner ordered the shrimp and grits and I asked if that would also be celiac safe so I could try it. He said something like “grits is made with corn so yes.” It made me nervous that he was unaware of the many places gluten hides (sauces, shredded cheeses, spice mixes, etc.). Food ended up being great though, and I don’t feel sick!
