Gluten Free Mother’s Day at Flemings

My research showed that not only was Flemings offering a Mother’s Day Brunch, but they had a gluten free menu. So I made reservations at the new Domain location in Austin and specified in the reservation that I had celiac and needed the gluten free menu.

I dropped my family off and went to park. My wife said they had the gluten free menu ready for us when we got there. She never even had to mention. Our waiter, Dallas, was extremely helpful. I had expected my family to order from the brunch menu while I would have to order something different from the gluten free menu. However, on examination, it appeared that there was at least one option in each category that was similar to the gluten free menu. I asked Dallas and he checked with the chefs. The selections I pointed out were all gluten free with only the slightest modification, which the chefs readily agreed to make. So I got to order the same brunch the rest of my family ordered! That was so cool.

In all honesty, this truly felt like a feast. It’s not a feast we can afford too often. But it was a wonderful experience all the way around. My wife and children also loved the food. But my wife and I had been to Flemings once before, prior to my diagnosis, so I knew they would love it. My experience there as someone with celiac couldn’t have been better in any way I can imagine.
