What a beautiful setting for a meal! We sat outside on the water for a lovely evening meal in March. The Boathouse is owned by my husbands hands down favorite restaurant in Chicago, Gibsons. Going into the Boathouse with that in mind is not a…
Again, I don’t know why I didn’t take meal photos, but there were plenty of safe and enjoyable options for us here. We always like the dessert, which is simple but yummy! This is a great choice for our larger gatherings with little kids because…
We all love this place! When we came in, they gave us new allergen free menus. One was for gluten free options and the other was for dairy free options. Because I needed both, it was a bit odd and confusing, but the chef came out and apologized and helped us figure out what to order, safely. Also, I noticed some items on the dairy free menu that are gluten free, but they were not listed on the gluten free menu, and that is how we came about the dessert.
Starting with dessert, we asked if the chef could do a warmed gluten free dairy free donut topped with toffutti ice cream. My daughter loved it, and she ate every bite!
For her meal, she had the steak, veggies, and safe gluten free fries. She said the steak was delicious, as were the veggies. So, that was a hit!
I ordered the Salmon BLT again. This time, the gluten free pita was very good and not hard, as it was the last time I ordered it. The sauce was great, the cucumber salad was tasty. It was a very good meal and we all ate too much! The shell they used this time had a sweet type of flavor to it, which made me suspect it to be a Kinnikinnik product, but I didn’t ask.
For dessert, they only offer us plain ice cream (Rice Dream or Toffuti), but when we asked for the warmed donut, they happily obliged. For mine, I asked for a chocolate sauce, which is different than their fudge. Still, it was a treat. I couldn’t eat it all, however. Too much food!
This was a buffet diner. Because of the condition of the buffet, I opted to ask for our food to be prepared in the back (there was way too much obvious cross contamination here, globs of food dropped in the wrong places throughout). The chef made me a delicious salmon, although it took a very very long time. The group was done eating and ready to go and we were still waiting on steamed greens and salmon.
If you are not in a hurry, though, the chef can prepare some wonderful food for you here.
Hollywood and Vine at MGM was fantastic. They had so many great veggie choices and the chef grilled salmon and steak for us too! We enjoyed homemade gluten free brownies (made that day). They were so wonderful. This was another character meal with singing and…
