extremely helpful because when a server hands you a gluten-free menu, you don't have to ask what is gluten-free. Everything on that menu is gluten-free! That is a big plus when ordering because you don't have to ask the server what is OK to eat, and the server doesn't have to take time to check with the chef. Although this process is fine and I always encourage people to have the server double-check for safety. It's really nice not to have to go through this process and just choose something off a menu.
bread. For example, many times, hummus will be labeled as containing gluten. However, it's only because this appetizer is served with naan. To date, I haven't found hummus that contains gluten in its ingredients! (That's at least one food that I know of…)
Always ask your server if the only reason the dish is labeled to have gluten is because of the bread. If they aren't sure, have them check with the chef. Remember, meats can have marinades that contain liquid gluten, so you never want to assume a dish is gluten-free.
If the dish contains gluten because of bread, ask for a substitute. You can often get apples, cucumbers, carrots, or other veggies that will nicely complement the dish without making your sick. Sometimes, you'll score big, and they will ask you if you want gluten-free bread! If not, I'm OK with a veggie or fruit substitute, and I've never been charged extra for this type of substitution.
