Melting Pot Offers a New Gluten-Free Menu

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.

    We went to PF Changs–Orlando– a couple days ago (my 11 y/o son is a recently diagnosed Celiac) and they were so good to us…their version of General Tso’s chicken is gluten free (not to mention they have a whole page on their menu that is entirely G free –“GF Changs” –how clever) and it was fabulous! I never would have known. Also–they comped my son a Gfree dessert–how’s that for PR? Perfect…my son loves it there! Of course we’ll be back…!

    • Samantha –

      That is one of our favorite places to go! I am so glad that your son was able to enjoy his meal. My son, Jon, was diagnosed at 10 years old and is14 now.

    Hey Kim!
    We went to The Melting Pot back in May for my birthday, soon after the new menu debuted. I posted a review of it on my blog: It was wonderful!!! Go soon!

    Renee – LOVE your thorough review! Now I’m really excited to finally try The Melting Pot for the first time this week! I’m taking Udi’s bread and will cut into cubes as you suggested. It sounds like you get a LOT of food there….oh well, extra time on the treadmill should even things out…lol!
