Celiac Dinner In Las Vegas

Recommended Posts

Hey gang,

I am organizing a gluten free meal at Maggiano's here in Las Vegas on June 16, 2007 at 1:30 p.m. I still have some open seats, so I thought I would offer them to the board here as I know there are folks around the Nevada, Arizona and California area that might come in. The price is $33.00 a person (everything included). I have worked with their chef before (Chef Curtis) and he is absolutely brilliant.

Just to tease you, here is the menu Chef Curtis and I have worked out so far (all selections served family style):

*****I purposely selected at least one dish in each course to be lactose free as well *******

Appetizers - (1) Italian Caprese (Buffalo Mozerella, Fresh Tomato and Basil) and

(2) Grilled Calamari

Salads - (1)Maggiano's Chopped Salad (Bleu Cheese and dressing on side) and (2)Maggiano's Ceasar Salad (dressing and parmesan cheese on side)

Pastas - (2) Maggiano's Gluten free Linguini with Johnny Z Pomodoro Sauce and (2)Gluten Free Farfalle (Bow tie pasta) with chicken, spinach and herbed olive oil and chicken stock reduction.

4. Entrees - (1) Authentic Chicken Piccatta and (2) Oven roasted Pork Loin served with au jus.

5. Dessert - (1) Creme Brulee and (2) a dairy-free Sorbetto

So, Hurry up and RSVP! (RSVP to my email - broncobux2000@yahoo.com)

Bring a loved one too! Although, beware - no gluten containing items will be served! This is our day and we will not be bothered by gluten containing selections on OUR TABLE! :)

Oh, my mouth is watering. I have not had calamari since I went gluten free. Can I get that when I have dinner with you in August? I wish I lived closer, but hubby won't drive 5 1/2 hours for a dinner. Only you do that, but we are old LOL.

ohhhhhhhhhhhh so jealous here!

there's a very slight chance I'll be in Vegas in July (now why would I go from Fresno in July to Las Vegas? from HOT to HELL??? :blink: ) I will pm you if I go for restaurant/ hotel suggestions.

I think you guys are going to have such a fantastic time - menu looks great!

Just thought I would bump this again for those that have not seen this thread.

I have to tell everyone that broncobux knows what he is doing in restaurants and is on a personal name basis with many Las Vegas chefs. I have seen him in action at a restaurant and the chef comes out and can't do enough.

So this meal would be more then safe. It would be very enjoyable with other Celiacs' and Chris is a great host.

It sounds really great! :) I'm a bit too far away, but if I could I'd be there!

Sounds very good. Too bad the timing is not right. I will be in Las Vegas on vacation in June but not on June 16. Maybe we will eat at Maggiano's while we are there.

We had a blast on Saturday. The chef and wait staff did a pretty good job (Chef screwed up the pork loin, but he made up for it with extra creme brulee and massive amounts of sorbet for the group).

To be honest, I don't care for the entrees at Maggianos (the gluten free ones). I like the pasta, love the salads, apps and desserts.

Chef was nice enough to bake 2 loaves of the Whole Foods Sun Dried Tomato and Garlic bread that I brought in so we could enjoy dipping bread in olive oil/balsamic vinegar (I have to admit I reallu liked that !)

All in all, I would label it as a success.

Next time, I will try to eliminate the entree and get more pasta and side items...

In July/August, I will be hosting a gluten free BBQ for the Vegas Celiac Group. Johnsonville Brats marinated in gluten free beer, Hebrew National HotDogs, Kinnikinnick Buns, Tater Salad, Bush's Baked Beans and plenty of coolers filled with Red Bridge!

Should be a hoot!

Man, I want to go to that bbq! Bronco, where do you get your Kinnikinnick Buns? I can't justify paying $15 online for them (price + shipping), and can't find them in any local Denver store (I just called around to Wild Oats, Vitamin Cottage and others). I've never seen but I would love to have a real hot dog again with a bun, mustard, pickles, the works...
