Going Gluten Free in the Design District

Whether you’re going gluten free due to health concerns or just looking to clean up your diet, gluten-free dining is here to stay. The Design District is a great place to head if you’re looking to avoid the starchy grain altogether and still have a delicious meal.

At MC Kitchen, the restaurant that has made a name for itself with its decadent pasta dishes, can also easily accommodate those living a gluten-free lifestyle. All of the restaurant’s pasta dishes can be made with a gluten-free pasta such as corn fussili, farro spaghetti and quiona linguine, and many of the restaurant’s vegetable dishes are also gluten-free. Make sure to wash all of these dishes down with a Tweason’ale beer that also doesn’t have any gluten.

At Harry’s Pizzeria, those avoiding gluten can still indulge in their pizza cravings. Harry’s recently developed a special crust made with a combination of rice flour, tapioca starch, corn starch, sugar and soy flour from the same supplier that it gets its traditional crust from. Once it's ready to bake, the chefs blend in yeast, honey and olive oil, and bake the pizza on a sizzle platter when ordered so there isn’t any cross contamination. Any pizza can be requested with gluten crust for just $2 extra. You don’t have to skimp biscotti or beer either, since Harry’s offers gluten free alternatives for those as well.

The Lemoni Pizza and Kitchen newly-revamped menu features many of its popular pizza and pasta dishes with gluten-free options, but raw and vegan options as well to cater to any and all dietary needs. At its neighboring cafe, Lemoni Cafe, guests looking for on-the-go treats and sweets have plenty of gluten-free choice like an array of seasonal cookies, cakes and pastries.
