Last night we went for an amazing experience at Farm Spirit in NE PDX. Full review on my blog here. They have a vegan tasting menu that is always low-gluten but not necessarily gluten-free. They were, however, more than happy to accommodate me with a gluten-free meal. When you make a reservation they specifically inquire if you are a gluten-free eater. Once at the meal there were few small changes in the menu that they made for us. But don’t get me wrong, these weren’t just ‘pull out the bread’ kinds of changes but careful and attentive substitution changes. Instead of a bread side we got handmade crackers. Instead of a roll we got an extra dish. The food was phenomenal and the chefs were clearly doing something they believe in…serving high quality, local, artfully prepared and presented dishes, accommodating the needs and desires of their diners. Brilliant.
Here are a few shots. Full review, more details and additional pics over at DrSamantha.com.
