9 Out Of 10 Don't React
Posted 15 October 2009 - 04:01 PM
Thinking asking was better than paying the penalty for ignorance, I asked the waiter about the au jus. He went and asked the manager, who said:
1) The au jus is naturally gluten free, but the pan in which they trap it may not be.
2) If it's contaminated, it's only a little contaminated.
3) Because 9 out of 10 of the gluten-free diners don't react to it, they serve it with the meat.
The manager offered another meal if I felt uncomfortable with the one they prepared. I accepted the offer.
I wonder how many complaints the manager gets, versus how many people simply never return.
I also wonder if the 9 of 10 metric reflects East Siders adopting the diet for its fad value. I can see that; what I vehemently disagree with is serving the au jus based on "only" 1 of 10 being poisoned.

Gluten free since 2005
In the midst of winter, I found there was within me an invincible summer.
