This May, the U.S. is recognizing Celiac Awareness Month. There is no known cure for celiac disease, and the only way to control it is by adhering to a strict gluten-free diet. It was just one year ago that I wrote about our Fleming's Gluten-Free Menu. At the time, I said that I was extremely proud of the fact that a guest at Fleming's would be hard-pressed to distinguish it from our regular menu.
Well, the response in the past year has been amazing. Fleming's guests have given an overwhelming thumbs-up for bringing the issue to their attention. There are an estimated 2 million Americans who suffer from celiac disease. Do the math, and it's clear that a lot of us have friends and family who are affected. And it's a shame that plenty of people with celiac just avoid going out because of the hassle of worrying about the menu choices.
At Fleming's Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar, our menu is almost entirely gluten-free. In fact, of the 50 items that are on our regular menu today, only a dozen contain any gluten products at all. And we've added a fantastic Small Plates menu that is almost entirely gluten-free. Six of the seven items on our Small Plates menu are included on our gluten-free menu with minor modifications:
Of course, food is only half the story at Fleming's, and right now we are offering a wonderful pairing, served only in the bar, called Small Plates, Big Pours. Our guests can select any of our Small Plates and pair it with an oversized pour from any of seven selections from the Fleming's 100.® For all of our guests, and especially those who dine gluten-free, this is a terrific opportunity to discover how food interacts with wine, and do it in our most fun and informal setting — the Fleming's Bar. It makes for a wonderful lighter meal. And it's an incredible value at just $24.95.*
We've all worked hard to develop a generous menu that everybody who chooses to dine at Fleming's can savor and enjoy. We will continue the Fleming's tradition of celebrating great food and wine, and helping create memorable times for every single guest.
