Finding gourmet gluten-free cuisine in Atlanta is a snap, if you know where to look. With the mindset of delivering an exceptional experience to all guests, these chefs over deliver.
Spot this delicious potato gnocchi dish on the gluten-free dinner menu at Davio’s Northern Italian Steakhouse.
Davio’s Northern Italian Steakhouse owner Steve DiFillippo has a daughter who follows a gluten-free diet due to having Lyme disease. Because of his family’s personal struggle to find gluten-free options when dining out, DiFillippo created gluten-free recipes and a separate menu to accommodate others facing the same issue. Choose from homemade rosemary Parmesan bread and handrolled gnocchi made with Cup4Cup’s gluten-free flour. All pasta dishes can be made with gluten-free pasta since all sauces are always free of gluten. Bonus: There’s even a gluten-free brunch menu. Phipps Plaza, 404.844.4810
At Atlas, executive chef Chris Grossman’s fascination with gluten-free baking and cooking can be attributed to his wife’s gluten-free diet. “I offer the same approach and caliber to guests with allergies and dietary restrictions as I do to guests without,” says Grossman. And his hard work paid off: Atlas has perfected fresh, housemade gluten-sensitive pasta (made on shared equipment) and made-from-scratch gluten-free bread. A separate menu is printed daily to simplify the ordering process. 88 W. Paces Ferry Road NW, 404.600.6471
The gluten-free scones included with high tea service at the Four Seasons Hotel Atlanta are the creation of a former pastry chef whose wife and daughter are sensitive to gluten. The tradition is carried on by Bar Margot’s pastry chef Lasheeda Perry, who has tweaked its recipe and shape. “A few years ago, I co-authored a book where I shared exclusively gluten-free dessert recipes. Now that I’m with the Four Seasons, I’m always sure to cater to the dietary needs of any guest—and my gluten-free scones do just that,” she says. May we suggest slathering them with a selection of clotted cream, lemon curd and seasonal jams? As for the rest of the dessert menu, flourless chocolate cake and French macarons round out the selection. Plus, tea sandwiches are served on local bakery UDI’s gluten-free, vegan bread. 75 14th St. NE, 404.881.5913
