Anyone Have Vegas Suggestions?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have a trip to Las Vegas coming up next month. Do you have any suggestions for gluten free restaurants? I really have to watch cross contamination so I'm pretty worried about eating out. I can make do with snacks and simple foods if needed but I'd like to eat a restaurant meal if I can find a good place. Thanks!

Google Find Me Gluten Free or Yelp to find restaurants and read the reviews. You can always grab a protein-style burger at In-n-Out. Request wheat allergy and have them cook it on a separate grille. If they do no have a second grille, do not eat a burger. Enjoy Las Vegas!

This is my post from my trip in Nov 2011 - hopefully things have not changed much.

 

Todd English P.U.B - outside the Aria - had Strongbow Cider. Server was very knowledgeable of gluten-free choices informed me of the carvery station they offer (no bread obviously) and what sauces were ok and not ok. Checked on the soup my wife had (Butternut squash or something like that) which was not gluten-free. I chose a hamburger which she said she would inform the chef of it needing to be gluten-free and added that the kitchen is used to preparing things this way and she even informed me that the fries were no good as they were fried in the same oil as other things.

Mon Ami Gabi @ the Paris Hotel - went for breakfast as gluten-free eggs Benedict were on the menu and they were great. They also had a separate gluten-free menu for other meals but I only went once for the breakfast.

Prime Steakhouse @ Bellagio - very expensive but again they made me feel very comfortable as they knew right off the bat which sauces for the steaks were ok. Went with the chilled seafood tower for appetizer and split it with my wife.

Canaletto @ the Venetian - chose this restaurant as it has gluten-free pasta. They prepared a seafood dish with red sauce over the gluten-free pasta and it was also very good.


Nine Fine Irishman @ NY NY - did not eat here but we did have drinks and they have Red Bridge - we stopped in at happy hour thinking we could get some drinks and appetizers but all of the apps on the happy hour menu were fried and gluten filled. But it was nice to have a couple beers. If you go at happy hour the downstairs bar was crowded and it was a little confusing were to sit as several tables had reserved signs on them. I assume as it was a happy hour situation they only want people sitting at the bar or the tables in the bar area. At first the staff was not very helpful but we finally got someone to tell us there was another bar upstairs.

PF Changs @ Planet Hollywood Casino - your normal gluten-free menu from a PF Changs but again they did have Red Bridge.

We were just ther October of 2013 and I had no problem.   I ate at a couple of chains I knew were safe and a few local places, here is what I had success with:
 

Maggiano's at the fashion mall

Outback (I think there are three on the strip)

9 Fine Irishmen in NYNY

BLT Burger in the Mirage

 

For breakfast we did:

Mon Ami Gabi - Paris

Peppermill - I was very skeptical here because it was very busy and portions were huge and a lot of bread being served, but the waitress and staff seemed to undertand fine and I did not get sick.  That  being said I am sensitive but I don't believe I super sensitive.

Alwayssomething, do you eat at Maggiano's where you live? I don't trust ours because they have a reputation of cooking the gluten-free pasta in the same water as the regular pasta. I know all locations are different so maybe the vegas location takes better care than my local place.

I'm definitely going to try Mon Ami Gabi - it sounds delicious!

WitsEnd, we don't have a Maggiano's close so I had never eaten there since being gluten free.  Usually when I go out to eat especially when I travel I will contact a bunch of places before hand online and ask about gluten free and specifically what I am thinking I will have and ask about the cooking process (or if if is bbq, I will ask about beer or soy sauce specifically).   I print that and take it with me on my trip.  When I get to the restaurant I will ask the staff the same question and if I get the deer in the headlights look I dig out my email and ask to speak to that person.     

 

This trip I didn't do that, so I only asked at the restaurant, they sent a chef out to see me.  I did ask about different water and he assured me it was not cooked in the same water as the regular noodles.   I didn't have any problems.

Ate at Mon Ami Gabi today. It doesn't appear to have made me sick and Im pretty sensitive...yay! The food is good and the staff is very knowledgeable about gluten-free. My waiter informed me they are all well trained and have to follow strict procedures, even down to not being allowed to carry a gluten plate and a gluten free plate at the same time - they have to be carried separately. I felt (cautiously) safe there and I seldom feel that way unless it's an entirely gluten-free restaurant. Thanks for the suggestion!
