My boss, my supervisor and another coworker were planning to go to dinner. We went to PF Changs, but there was a wait. We checked next door and were seated right away. I haven't been to a Flemings in years. I asked for the gluten-free or allergen menu and was provided with a gluten-free menu. Most of the steaks are made with just salt and pepper, but I wasn't planning to eat beef. I narrowed my choices to a chicken dinner or a "small plate" of scallops and vegetables. I decided I wanted to get a salad, so I went with the smaller, less expensive dish.
I was freaking out a little as I ordered because the waiter, while trying to be very accommodating, said that he could tell the kitchen I am gluten-free and they would take care of me. I felt like I had a very hard time convincing him that I am not JUST gluten-free. I was able to order in a manner that I hoped would keep me on track.
Others at the table had bread and crab cakes; fortunately, the salads came before the crab cakes so I wasn't drooling. The person who ordered steak wanted to share with everyone, so I had a very good surf and turf with a glass of red wine.
The meal was good, although very expensive (I did not pay, but I still watch). I appreciate the gluten-free menu and am glad that I didn't have to send anything back to the kitchen.
