The Winery, Sydney, Australia

I ate at The Winery yesterday, it's on Crown Street in Surry Hills in Sydney. It was a group event and we had a fixed menu. I called the restaurant in advance and so did the person who organised it and the staff were fantastic. The server came over to speak with me and went through the options I could have. From the shared platters to start there was only one item I couldn't have and they served that on a different plate. I had a choice of two of three mains; they were already gluten free by ingredient. They made me a special desert. It was all delicious, the server was super knowledgable about what I could and couldn't have, I wasn't constantly reminding them and by the way they served things I could take my servings first and not worry about cross contamination (I didn't have seconds of the shared platters though as by then there was the risk of my friends contaminating me).

The meal was absolutely safe, I didn't have a single glutening symptom. I thought they were fantastic and I'll be writing to the manager/owner to say so. I've eaten out a bunch of times and mostly been fine, but even places like PF Changs and Outback which have a dedicated menu worry me a little when a different person brings the dishes than took the order - I feel like I have to be super aware (like at outback last week they tried to give my gluten free house salad to my dad before I snatched it back. How hard is it to make a note on the order that the gluten-free meal belonged to the female adult customer? At the Winery I was one of about 16 people and all the servers all knew who the gluten free person was.

I LOVE Sydney! I felt so safe there when I was visiting my daughter....and I'm planning another visit in November. I wish the restaurants in the U.S. could take a lesson from the restaurants there...
