This update is appearing early because I am on my way to hang with Dr. Fasano and enjoy a quick, yet relaxing vacation in Mexico.
According to Creative Loafing, a Dreamland Bar-B-Que is coming to a vacant former warehouse in downtown Duluth. The city of Duluth announced plans to construct a 6,500-square-foot Dreamland Bar-B-Que restaurant in the historic district downtown on W. Lawrenceville Street.
Durango Woodfire Grill is now open in Johns Creek serving lunch and dinner meat-centric dishes, salads, wings, and more.
Gluten Free Cutie Bakery offers frozen bagels, frozen pizza crusts, veggie pot pies, mac ‘n cheese, and take and bake cinnamon rolls in the Cutie’s Market grab-and-go freezer. Stop by and stock up!
il Giallo Osteria & Bar is open in Sandy Springs and represents a partnership between Chef Jamie Adams and Leonardo Moura with the simple goal of transporting diners to a little piece of Italy. The menu is full of gluten-free options such as antipasti (except the caesar salad and polpette), all of the meats and cheeses, all of the fish entrees, all meat entrees (except the Veal Parmesan) and all of the sides too. They will also begin serving pre-made gluten free pasta in the next few weeks, but call to make sure it is available before heading over. Chef/ Owner Jamie Adams has worked at Buckhead Life’s Veni Vidi Vici for 19 years and is very familiar with celiac and the requirements to keep dishes safe from cross contamination for those with gluten intolerance/sensitivity. Clean pots, utensils, strainers, etc. will be used when preparing gluten-free orders.
Juice Bar is coming to the space formerly occupied by Snip-Its at The Forum in Peachtree Corners/Norcross. In addition to fresh juices, smoothies, and medicinal shots, they also carry a line of gluten-free baked goods from Mason Dixon Bakery out of Alabama. Their bars, bites, and muffins are available daily. Gretchen’s Goodies are also available and made in a dedicated gluten-free bakery in Tennessee. Can’t wait until they open!
One Eared Stag’s brunch includes buckwheat pancakes with pecans, apple and vanilla cream. Love going to brunch and being able to order gluten-free carbs. Check out their brunch menu, which includes more gluten-free options.
Paizanos in downtown Norcross has added gluten-free pasta and pizza to the menu. Mariella’s corn-based pasta is cooked in clean water and prepared with clean utensils to keep it free from cross contact. They are preparing pizza on French Meadow Bakery’s 10″ pizza crust, which comes in its own baking pan to prevent cross contact in the oven. There is a $3 up charge for the pizza crust. Ask the servers which pasta sauces and pizza toppings are gluten free before ordering.
Seven Sisters Scones is now serving soups with all, except chowders, made with gluten-free ingredients. They have also added gluten-free Bisconnes (cross between a biscotti and a scone) to their offerings along with gluten-free croutons, which make a perfect addition to their homemade soups.
Have a lovely weekend and see you next week!
