With a growing demand for gluten-free dishes, Las Vegas restaurants have stepped up with a host of options for those avoiding wheat products. Not long ago, trying to eat gluten-free at restaurants could be a risky proposition, but increased awareness in kitchens throughout Las Vegas is helping more diners enjoy delicious--and safe--dishes.
Throughout Las Vegas, you’ll find restaurants either offering dedicated allergen menus, or noting which items on the menu are gluten-free. No gluten doesn’t translate into “boring,” with inventive Las Vegas chefs coming up with exceptional dishes from a variety of cuisines, including Mexican, Italian and French.
If you’re dining out in a group that includes gluten intolerant diners, several Las Vegas restaurants offer menus big enough to accommodate everyone at the table. Joe’s Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab offers a good selection of gluten-free dishes, including many that use the restaurant’s signature items. Carmine’s, an Italian eatery, offers menus for several types of food allergies, including gluten intolerance--no need to skip the pasta here.
While it’s always a good idea to check ahead for any restaurant’s gluten-free options, it’s increasingly common for restaurants to be willing to accommodate requests for gluten-free versions of dishes. Chefs and kitchen staff are also more aware of cross-contamination issues, and restaurants that are especially sensitive to food allergy concerns may even detail their kitchen processes on the menu.
