Acadiana: The Big Easy Gluten Free

January 29th, 2008 by Brandi

Acadiana is a D.C. restaurant that deserves a glutie shout out. This New Orleans themed restaurant, by Chef Jeff Tunks and sister restaurants TenPenh, DC Coast and Ceiba, gets gluten free with style.

I recently went for dinner where I learned that a Category 5 was, in fact, a hurricane (oops!). With a follow up bourbon fizz, I was giggly at dinner … at best. The drink menu was comprehensive and yummy! After I was through with it, I’m surprised the waitress tolerated my questions, let alone answered them with accuracy and efficiency.

 As I mentioned, we began our meal at the bar with a trio of deviled eggs. These bite sized bits of heaven featured crab, caviar and shrimp and were the perfect size to satiate our appetite while we waited for our 8 p.m. reservation. After the delightful snack, we moved to our table where the waitress expertly walked me through the menu and recommended several dishes that would meet my dietary restrictions. I settled on the beet salad and grilled filet sans blue cheese and sauce. My fiance enjoyed the famed shrimp and grits. I wanted a bite, so I checked again, and the grits were safe! What a nice surprise … on my plate and in my experience. I highly recommend the restaurant for anyone with a food restriction.

 We’ll be back! I’m thinking about another bourbon fizz …
