This blog is dedicated to us Celiacs, or those who live or want to live a Gluten Free (GF) life. I've come across products and restaurants that are wonderful, and want to share them (and hope you do the same)! I've also come across products I wish I never purchased, and restaurants that were unaccommodating to say the least. This is a forum to share useful information so we can support those accommodating companies, and hope those that aren't step up to the challenge!
Cafe Abbracci - AMAZING Gluten Free Pasta with Bolognese Sauce
Cafe Abbracci, in Coral Gables, a popular Italian restaurant, that will always have my business -- because they have the BEST gluten free pasta in the Gables. I've actually become an addict and have to have my Cafe Abracci gluten free pasta with old School bolognese meat sauce regularly. For $18, it's not the least expensive pasta - but, it's worth every penny. Cafe Abbracci carries gluten free pasta on site, and you get to choose your sauce. There are many pasta options, but I'm hooked on the meat sauce and can't even think of not having it. I'm always ecstatic when local restaurants step up to the plate and accommodate us Celiac's - I'm thrilled to have Cafe Abbracci as a scrumptious lunch and dinner choice.
Out of the last 10 times I've been to Cafe Abbracci, there has been only one instance where they were out of my gluten free pasta (good note to call before you go and assure they do have the gluten free pasta available). I unfortunately had no other option but to try something new. The lamb chops fit the bill. Ask for mint jelly for deliciousness.
And sorbet for desert! Yes, its as divine as it looks!
A HUGE THUMBS UP to Cafe Abbracci, thank you for stepping up -- keep your gluten free pasta fully stocked, I'll see you soon, and regularly!!
