Ginza In Bloomfield,ct

Recommended Posts

I just had an awesome sushi dinner at Ginza in Bloomfield, CT (near Hartford). Not onlywas the fish delicious, but they had wheat free soy sauce! I had packets of not-so-good stuff, but their San J Tamari was much preferred! It was recommended to us by one of my dad's clients whose kids have celiac. Great dinner overall!


Gluten Free since 10/07

Mildly Lactose Intolerant, slight intestinal symptoms after eating milk products, but easily corrected with lactase enzyme

Endometriosis- DX'd 5/07

Gluten Antibodies- "negative"...don't know exact numbers, am highly suspicious...

DXed celiac 12-19-07 via genetics/elimination diet- DQ2 allele

Brother with Celiac, aspergers...his tests were all negative (he didn't have genetics done), including endoscopy, but he definitely is at the least gluten intolerant...highly suspect my mother has it as well- she has hyperthyroid, fibromyalgia, hemochromatosis, and now colon cancer, and she has been weak and exhausted and just generally sick. She's going to get tested.

it is a great product

brought a case of it with me to Tokyo and leave it at various restaurants.

Its made and sold only in the US and not here but the company is based in Nagoya and Mie-ken.

One small caution - I think it was San-J, anyway at least one brand whose regular tamari is wheat free has a low-sodium tamari that is not wheat-free - go figure! But it is labeled.

Will have to try Ginza when in the neighborhood.

Another CT restaurant - yesterday ate at Gabrielle's in Centerbrook (near Essex) - we made res on open table; Gabriells's, is not gluten-free or allergy-focused but server was somewhat familiar, kitchen was flexible and I ate cleanly. I will use open table more and more, you can put a gluten-free note on the res & restaurants seem to track that better than phone reservation gluten-free comments.

Gabrielle's calamari batter is rice flour & corn starch only (wow! - but not sure about their deep fryer protocol, as we didn't order that) - we had the panfried oysters to start, which are usually corn meal & wheat flour breaded, so they used the rice/corn starch instead and it was very tasty. Chef had once done these corn meal only, which didn't stick so well (aside - we use corn-meal only at home on fish with either a milk or egg dip first, it is very crunchy but is fine for home cooking imho)

For main courses, they did the pan sauteed trout without its usual flour dredging, and brought the spaetzle for this item on the side in a separate dish placed on the far side of my DH. The duck entree was gluten-free with no changes needed.

Didn't have dessert, so not sure what the options would be.

app's and salads are $8-14; "small plates" $16-20 or so, main courses $19-29. BYOB charge was $18 total for 2 bottles (don't worry we didn't finish both); wine list is quite reasonably priced and focused on $25-75/bottle range


gluten-free (except unintentionally) from 7 Dec 2007

3 gluten-free cousins and counting (1 gold standard, 1 pos blood/no endo, 1 self/dietary diagnosed)

suspect mother was celiac (also, cousin suspects my mother's twin is celiac)

Feb 08 testing 'normal range' for gluten antibodies, IBD and food allergies

Staying off gluten - dietary reaction is compelling for me!
