While visiting Cincinnati over the President’s Day weekend, my grandparents wanted to go out for dinner with my dad and me. After some searching, we decided that Cooper’s Hawk Winery and Restaurant in Kenwood would be a good place to go out because they had an expansive gluten-free menu and lots of choices for the gluten, and non-gluten eaters in our party.
When I arrived our waiter brought out the restaurant’s gluten-free menu. I marveled at it’s multi-page format and that it listed everything from appetizers to desserts. It made knowing the gluten-free options refreshingly easy.
On Cooper’s Hawk’s menu, vegetarian and vegan options are marked, and in my experience our waiter was happy to double check with the chef to verify items were dairy-free. Other gluten-free features of this menu are that gluten-free buns are available for sandwiches and burgers as well as for a gluten-free bread course. On another note, the restaurant uses Barilla gluten-free pasta.
As with any restaurant, be sure to notify the wait staff of your dietary restrictions and don’t hesitate to ask questions if you have concerns. As reassuring as a dedicated menu is, it’s still important to communicate so that your dining experience is satisfactory and safe.
