    but i have to tell you if i eat too much gluten i will feel like **** for up to a week, glad i finally figured it out because it sucks.

    but we have these people who come in literally every single night and sit at the bar. They refuse to order off the menu, and the Maitre D' allows them to get away with it as well as the owners. Every night is some concoction of food and special sauce. Then about a minute before we close his wife will order something special.
    people that fake gluten allegies are lame. that being said, im pretty convinced that there definitely health benefits to reducing your gluten consumption, and i do try to do just that whenever i can.

    My most ridiculous ever was someone who wanted their entire meal (a salmon entree) put in a blender so they could drink/slurp it. They were elderly or injured or something...but geez.
    gross dude!

    The thing is, we take food allergies seriously. So don't tell us you're allergic to something when you really aren't. Getting all new mise, cutting boards, putting pots of clean oil on the range to cook your "gluten allergy" fries. It screws us up. We're happy to accommodate, but don't lie about it.
    Gaaawd most disrespectful people ever. Im sorry if youre gluten free for real, but Im sick of this S&^* and the whiny snobby attitudes.

    Happens all too often. What the hell did you come here for lady? You want a boiled potato or something? 14 ways...

    I love the vegan 10 course tasting menu, without notice. Someone may have already said that though.
