I got a couple of comments on the Gluten Free reveal, so hello to you! But best of all was Shannon pointing out that Moxie (new bakery on N. Market that I was feeling bitter about not being able to sample) sometimes has GF goodies. I also hear tell that La Dolce Vita over on Carroll Creek does, too, and even sometimes has GF buns for their sandwiches. Woo! I’ve eaten at both Volt and Isabella’s with my new diagnosis and found it easy to dine. At Volt I was getting the express menu, so I just asked for things w/o bread or croutons or what have you. no trouble.
This weekend, I was near Berkeley Springs, WV with some friends and we went to Panorama at the Peak Restaurant. First–the VIEW! Holy moly. I live on top of Braddock Mountain and I have a pretty nice view of the Middletown valley from my back porch, but it’s like a view of a brick wall compared to what you see from Panorama. The menu at this time of year is about 90% local. Entrees were in the 17-30 dollar range for dinner, but there were sandwiches earlier in the day that looked good. It’s very cozy (the weather was cold and wet, so that fireplace was welcome) and seemed to be pretty popular. GF items are clearly labeled, woo! The food was very good. Not Volt-good (or, honestly, Isabellas-good), and probably not worth the prices, but a nice treat nonetheless. I was only feeding myself, so it wasn’t that big of a deal. If I’d had my family along, I’d likely have…well, I”d have left when I saw the prices. Can’t feed a family of 5 there. I’d try it again if in the area and either alone or with my husband.
So, fellow shunners of the Evil Gluten–where else to you eat around town? Not being able to eat Asian foods is KILLING me. know of anyplace in the DC or B-more area that’s using tamari instead of soy sauce?
