    I ordered gluten free menu due to my psoriasis and it came out with wheat flour dough for their mexican pizza which they had the gf sign on. My body reaction to gluten is not instant but it comes out slow. They did not think they made a severe mistake at all.

    Mexican restaurant near Columbus Circle. They have a sensitive customer who comes here regularly and, as such, are very knowledgeable about cross contamination. They know to prepare foods for sensitives in a separate area. I am non-Celiac but can’t have foods cooked in the same fryer as flour if I want to avoid digestive issues. I sat at the bar and the bartenders knew all about it. They made recommendations based on my level of sensitivity. I was impressed. They were also extremely friendly and made me some excellent margaritas (hint: try the Siete Leguas. Vida Verde has a really special selection of tequilas and mezcals). Food was good, not spectacular, but the friendly, personal service, attentiveness to my gf needs, and the incredible margaritas push this place to the top of my list. I will definitely be back. Regularly. Be sure to communicate with them clearly - if your server isn’t immediately knowledgeable about gf, ask the bartenders, who are great and really know their stuff. Update: I went again and my food just wasn’t that good. Great place for drinks though- I’ll come back for that.
