Just did not feel like cooking tonight so I got on my trusty computer to check the local restaurants for gluten free menus. Seems the folks over at Outback and Carabbas have an extensive gluten free menu without a lot of "order without..." type of stuff.
We went to Carabbas, and while I love the seasoned olive oil dip, I obviously stayed away from the bread. Since I know how awful regular bread makes me feel, I didn't really mind. Although, I did ask if I could bring in some of my own GF bread and they said SURE! Next time, I will have bread on hand and dip away!
Most of their steaks and chicken dishes can be ordered gluten free which really means no grill baste. I never missed it! I had the chicken Marsala and it was just perfect! Half has come home with me, too. I forgot that the garlic mashed potatoes are pretty intense with chopped up garlic cloves. My stomach is gurgling now and I believe it was only the garlic. My dog thinks my breath is wonderful!
It's nice to know that there are some restaurants that will cater to the gluten free crowd. I even overheard another server at a different table discussing the gluten free menu. While I probably like some other places a little bit more, these two will get my business now when I go out to dinner.
