We went out a few weeks ago with friends and we decided to go to Saltbox. I have posted about them here and here. Both of those go into a lot of detail so I won't bore you with the same background information.
I had a great meal that was made better by great company.
I had the brussel sprout salad which I have had before. When you order this item GF it should not have fried parsley on it (it is deep fried in a fryer used for gluten containing items). This was good as usual.
Next I had the pumpkin soup. This was good, rich and creamy. It was served with a chesnut cream and herb oil. The broth they use is made in house from scratch and gluten free - I asked.
Next up was my entree. I had the Jidori Chicken. I have had the Jidori chicken before prepared in a different way that was GF so I was surprised to see it listed on the menu as TG (trace gluten). I asked our server and she said the reason they list it as TG is because they confit the leg and the oil is not GF. I asked further about the truffle grits that is served with the dish. They checked and told me they use Hodgson Mills and it lists that it is made on a lined shared with wheat so they would omit the grits. They roasted the breast and leg and it was very good.
For desert I had their Pot de creme which is made in house from scratch. It is a favorite of mine.
A good meal and very knowledgable and helpful staff.
Until next time,
The Un-Gluten Guy
