According to the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness, “Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder triggered by the ingestion of gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley and rye.” It’s estimated that 83% of Americans who have Celiac disease are either undiagnosed or misdiagnosed.
Nowadays, most people know someone who is suffering from some sort of gluten intolerance. So we do our best to offer a seamless experience for those who are unable to eat gluten. In the words of Chef Mark Ladner, “there’s really only one true rule of hospitality: you cannot allow anyone to leave your restaurant dissatisfied.” We’ve tested and tasted our dishes to produce versions that are equally delicious to the gluten-ful recipes on our menus.
In honor of Celiac Awareness Month, we’re highlighting some of the steps our restaurants are taking to offer gluten-free options. For starters, gluten-free pasta is available upon request at all of our restaurants around the country. The team at Del Posto has introduced a gluten-free pasta tasting menu.
GlutenDude produced a video of Del Posto mastermind Mark Ladner on the gluten-free offerings.
Last May, the team at Serious Eats put the gluten free menu to the (taste) test. Check out their findings here.
