Legal Sea Foods operates up-scale restaurants along America’s east coast. Each location has its own menu — in most cases there is a separate gluten free menu for lunch and dinner.
Here is a copy of the information that is on each gluten free menu: “Legal Sea Foods has taken the necessary precautions to ensure that the following menu items and their preparations are free of elements that might cause a reaction for those with gluten sensitivity. We ensure the use of gluten-free products and that all recipes are free from gluten, therefore, we will not make any substitutions. All seafood and meat items will be prepared by the following methods: wood grilled, steamed, pan-seared, baked with gluten free crumbs, or fried in brown rice flour and cornmeal. Since sensitivity to gluten can vary widely, it is important to note that our kitchens are not a gluten free environment. All cookware and plate-ware are pre-washed and wiped dry before cooking and presentation. Please allow us additional time to prepare your meal as these items require special attention. A manager will consult with you and follow your order through to completion.”
I’m curious about why they used the title “Wheat and Gluten Sensitivity Menu”. I’m impressed with the last sentence talking about the role of the restaurant manager in this process.
