Gluten-free Ann Arbor

 

continued

Andrea Klooster was born in France to American parents and diagnosed as a celiac at the age of two. To make sure her food was gluten free, her mother spent hours in the kitchen, "making everything from scratch." Thirty-seven years later, she is delighted at the wide availability of GF products in Ann Arbor, even in mainstream groceries. Busch's, Kroger, and Meijer all continue to build their gluten-free selections.

For many celiacs, dining out can be the equivalent of tiptoeing through a minefield. But a random sampling of local eateries revealed that some Ann Arbor restaurants are doing their best to change that.

Guests at Seva, the city's oldest natural foods restaurant, can request a special gluten-free menu. At Zingerman's Roadhouse, chef and managing partner Alex Young oversees a menu that includes gluten-free entrees, salads, and appetizers as well as his own GF creation--the Rice Grits and Bits Waffle. The Jolly Pumpkin even brews a gluten-free beer--"a heartfelt attempt," says executive chef and managing partner Maggie Long, to create a welcoming venue for all patrons.

Ask about GF options at the Cottage Inn, and the maitre d' will reverse a menu to feature the gluten-free list that debuted in October. Among the unexpected offerings are bruschetta and cheese bread. Likewise, Gratzi features gluten-free dishes on both its lunch and dinner menus.
