Gf pasta cooked in glutenized pasta water. You can ask them to make it separately and after saying no.... or it will take an hour to make safely..... they finally agree to do it safely. And it tastes like cardboard after all that fighting to make it safe. It’s such an unpleasant experience for someone with celiac. The apple salad is good. That’s the only positive thing I can say. I will never come back again.
All of the pasta dishes except for one can be made GF by substituting gf noodles. There were other items on the Small Plates that could be gf, but we ordered pasta dishes. Both were wonderful. Staff was great... when the food was brought to our table by a different staff member he even named both dishes as he sat them down and said that the noodles were gf. (I appreciate not having to ask over and over like a crazy person!)
The wait staff are very educated on food allergies and cross contamination issues. We had the roasted beets appetizer which is amazing and the gf penne pasta Short rib ragu. The flavors are an allergy person dream! You will not be disappointed!
It isn’t on the menu, but there is gluten free pasta that is substitutable for regular pasta. The staff knew about cross-contamination, and most dishes could be made gluten free besides the pizza. It just isn’t easy to tell from the menu but the servers are very helpful. There is also a gelato place connected that had lots of gluten free options!
NOT CELIAC FRIENDLY! The food looked good but this is not GF. They said they had great options for GF but all it was , was taking off things from the plate-like bread- but it COST THE SAME. They take off your sides and serve you a sandwich without bread on more lettuce, but charge the same. not fair for those with celiac. and all their food is fried in the same oil and the GF pasta is cooked in the same water as the regular. I left and would not risk it.
My husband and I had a fantastic meal here. I got the local lettuce and we had the chefs special shishito peppers with a spicy aioli. They use gf penne for their pasta, nothing special about that... but they definitely accommodate for allergies! They also didn't have a lot to choose from with the dessert menu. So, we went downstairs to the gelato shop and shared that! Which has allergens listed on the glass! I would definitely recommend Obstinate Daughter!!The atmosphere was my favorite part.
They have gluten free pasta- but they cook it right next to where they throw the pizza dough. And the kitchen is very small. They were happy to accommodate- but with my other allergies ( soy. Whey) there wasn't anything I could eat on the menu. They were done and I didn't get sick- but it was really a headache.
