The Melting Pot is now participating in the Gluten Intolerance Group of North America’s Gluten-Free Restaurant Awareness Program. What great news!! The new gluten-free menu is impressive!
There are so many different choices. There is a 4-course “Big Night Out” option that offers different choices for each course. There are cheese fondues, salads, lettuce wraps, entrees, chocolate fondues & drinks. Each menu item has notes on how to order it to ensure that it is gluten-free. I have not had the chance to dine at a Melting Pot restaurant, but will be hopefully making my way to one very soon.
Add The Melting Pot to a growing list of restaurants that are catering to gluten-free diners. It seems as if the proverbial light bulb finally went on this year and the result has been many of the large chain restaurants adding gluten-free menus or adding new menu items to their gluten-free menus. P.F. Chang’s expanded their gluten-free menu and now offers many new beef dishes in addition to many old favorites. BJ’s Brewhouse added gluten-free pizza to their gluten-free menu. Mellow Mushroom is now offering gluten-free pizza in a test market area. Rusty Bucket added a gluten-free menu to all of their locations. Jason’s Deli is beginning to offer Udi’s gluten-free bread for their sandwiches beginning July 5, 2010. In addition to the chain restaurants jumping on the gluten-free bandwagon, many local restaurants are following suit.
If there was ever a time to be diagnosed with Celiac Disease or start the gluten-free diet, now is it. There is no reason for anyone to feel deprived or limited with all of the choices available. This not only goes for dining out, but for stocking your own refrigerators & pantries.
