Loring Pasta Bar

Recommended Posts

Loring Pasta Bar's always willing to improvise something gluten-free for me, but now they've explicitly printed a statement on their menu that all pasta in the pasta dishes can be substituted for rice.

I wondered if the sauces though were indeed gluten free (cause as we know, it's not just enough to sub rice for pasta!) I had them double-check against my Triumph Dining card and they assured me, yes, the (seafood spaghetti) sauce was safe.

If you've never been, it's a great place to take out-of-towners. The restaurant has won design awards for what they did with the old apothocary and deservedly so. The space is simply amazing. That the food is good too and reasonably priced (both by Twin Cities standards, of course...) is a bonus.

I'm not sure... I'd definitely have them double- and triple-check before you eat it though, especially the cream sauces. They also have sandwiches, salads, etc. if you're not in the mood for pasta. And I've also just gone in and told them what I want off-menu (e.g., my tuna-on-a-bed-of-greens standby) and they're pretty good about it. The artichoke dip is gluten-free but comes ringed with bread--have them put the bread on a different plate and eat your share first.

Happy eating!
