Every once in a while, a restaurant reaches out to me to help spread the word of new Gluten Free offerings. I created this site to do just that, so when I get a tip of something new to try I jump on it.
This time around I heard from Fresh Bistro, located in the Junction of West Seattle. Fresh Bistro is a fine dining twist on neighborhood eating. So why the visit? The restaurant has an all new Gluten Free menu. Front of House Manager RobRoy was courteous and very knowledgeable of Celiac and Gluten Intolerance.
One of the things that caught my eye right away was the NW Seafood Chowder. I am not a soup guy, but I really enjoy chowder. The quality of the seafood was high and flavors just right. Most chowder on the market is not Gluten Free, so this was a real treat.
The highlight of my meal ended up being the main course. Sarah and I ordered the Lamb Burger. Served without a bun, the burger was incredibly flavorful. RobRoy educated me on their kitchen and let me know that the potatoes included as the side were fried in a fryer that does not encounter gluten.
We rounded out our meal with a beautifully plated and simple Beet Salad.
For a good meal, nice atmosphere, and a restaurant which cares about its Gluten Free friends I recommend giving Fresh Bistro a try.
