The Pacific Plate is no longer here. I'm writing this review so others don't drive far out of their way like we did tonight hoping to find a dedicated gf restaurant. The new place is called The Bird Supper Club and has been operating at this location for three months. The owner explained that most of their dishes are gf and that the chef has been eating gf for ten years. We were starving and had just driven an hour to get here so we tried it. My biggest complaint is the salad had a crouton in it. The BBQ Thai chicken was very salty as were a couple of the other things we tried. The thoughtful chef did send out a green bean appetizer and some French fries for our kiddo who had already been having a rough day. Disappointing overall and now I'm anticipating getting sick.
The entire menu and kitchen are gluten free. The duck confit is heaven. All the food is local and fresh. Funky, yet cozy dining room. Delicious drinks from the connecting bar next door. Loved it...and I could eat anything on the menu, with celiac disease!
I took a chance on this restaurant by looking at the menu which didn't seem to have any gluten on the menu. I asked as I was perusing the menu and Katy, one of the owners/chefs/waitstaff, said she is gluten-intolerant and that they keep a totally GF kitchen using Bob's Red Mill flours & Canyon buns & breads. Farm-to-table. Sonoma county is known for their organic foods and these gals know their vendors with fresh local meats and cheeses and will tell you all about them. The Jumbo Pink Banana Squash soup was a subtle delight but the piece de resistance was the Bollies Mollies soft cheese melted in it. I had the Grilled Vegies on Spanish Rice (w green chili & beans); it was available as a vegetarian entree (yummy); the Stornetta Pork was an add on but was overcooked so I didn't appreciate it's flavor.They lived in New Mexico which influences the choices of spices and ingredients. The entrees trend on the spicy (buy not burning) side so ask if you have concerns. As a new restaurant they aim to please and appreciate your feedback.Be forewarned, the only signage was a small sidewalk sandwich board which wasn't very visible. It's in the Pt Arena hotel building. You can enter through the bar if you can't find the door.
