I suggest you all try Wildfire- yummie!

http://www.wildfirerestaurant.com/second_l...menu/celiac.htm

I was in Atlanta last week, and we actually ate there twice!!! The food was SO DELICIOUS, and I was felt like a normal person eating in a restaurant.

One word of caution: The first time we ate there I ordered the chocolate flourless cake, and they cautioned me that they would have to serve it without ice cream because their ice cream is not gluten free. That was fine, and it was wonderful! We ate there again a few days later. I ordered the chocolate flourless cake (they knew I was gluten free for medical reasons) but it came with the ice cream on top. I asked the waitress to please verify that I could have it and briefly explained why I was questioning it. She took it away, and came back with a fresh dessert (sans ice cream) and was VERY apologetic. She said that indeed their ice cream is not gluten free, and didn't understand how the mix up happened...they pride themselves in doing a superb job with allergies, intolerances, etc. etc. I think it really was a very honest mistake. I only describe my experience to say: YES, dine at Wildfire, it's AMAZING, but keep your gluten radar on high (as we should anywhere we dine away from home).

I had the steak tenderloin sandwich. Imagine that! A sandwich in a restaurant, oh was I ever in the clouds. The steak was very tender, the kinnikinnick bun was toasted, and all served with shredded lettuce and tomato. EXCELLENT! The kind of sandwich you get in a "nice" restaurant.

I would also like to throw out a caution, as with every restaurant. I went a few weeks ago and really enjoyed it, however, our waiter was not familiar with gluten free and had to ask the manager about the blue cheese on the salad. I ordered the gluten-free cake and it came out looking suspicous (was 3 layers and very tall - not at all like a flourless cake would look), but since it wasn't on the "normal" menu or on the dessert tray that they took around I figured it had to be the gluten-free cake. Well, come to find out it was NOT gluten-free, so I was served (and ate) a regular cake. I will still go back there again though, as the rest of my meal was great, but I will definitely question things if there is any doubt in my mind (I'm still new to this so mistakes are bound to happen).

My Brother, Mother, and I went here for lunch today and it was delicious! I love the portabella mushroom sandwich.

That's strange ... or else their gluten-free menu is ... ice cream is on the gluten-free menu. :blink:

Hahaha! I didn't have a menu in my hands at the moment, but that's what I was told at lunch one day and then confirmed at dinner a couple of days later. I thought it would be unusual that the vanilla ice cream wasn't gluten-free, but I certainly was going to argue or question? Hmmmm....wonder what the real story is???

Might be worth an e-mail inquiry to corportate.
