Blogger, restaurant broker, and man-about-town Sidney Sokoloff sips his way around his gluten intolerance. He shares some tipsy tips with gluten-sensitive TABLE readers.
501 Grant Street
This is one of the best gluten-free-friendly brunch places to go. They have a long list of craft cocktails, including a dealers-choice mimosa, and their food options are very gf-friendly. Whether you are going to grab cocktails after work, or having a bubbly brunch with friends, if you have a gluten-free restriction, their staff is educated to make sure your experience is seamless.
211 Kenmawr Avenue, Rankin
If you love wine, cigars, and a cool experience, this is one of my favorites, and well worth the drive. With a selection of over 400 wines (with wine being the safest gluten-free alcohol option), there’s something for everyone. It’s a cool experience because you’re lounging in a rehabbed church, and you get an iPad to select your wines. The food menu also has gf options available.
Leo. A Public House
1207 Allegheny Avenue
Hands down, Leo is one of the best places to get a gluten-free craft cocktail in the ‘Burgh. They infuse a large selection of liquors in-house, and the bartender is extremely talented. You order your drink based on the liquor of your choice, and the bartender will ask you questions on your flavor likes and dislikes. Within minutes: a custom cocktail unlike any other you’ve tried before.
