Shaun's Restaurant hosts monthly "celiac dinners"

Most people who are gluten-free in the ATL know about the gluten-free weekends at Shaun's Restaurant. Located in the Inman Park area of Atlanta, Shaun's offers a casual atmosphere with a touch of sophistication thrown in for good measure. I've heard the French fries there are the best in the ATL, but as they are not fried in a gluten-fryer, I've not been able to sample them myself. The fries are cooked in duck fat so I'm thinking they are probably live up to their reputation. Shaun's serves the excellent gluten-free beers from Belgium made by Green's and has an impressive wine list.  

The next "celiac dinner" weekend starts this Friday, September 17th and runs through Sunday, the 19th. Please note that you can always order a gluten-free meal at Shaun's. When possible, dishes will be modified to be gluten-free. The last time we went to Shaun's, my husband and I fought over the Vidalia onion soup we intended to share. The amazing soup is not always available, but it made our top 5 (restaurant) soup list - including soups with and without gluten. Yes, it's that fabulous!

The event details below were sent to me via Shaun's PR contact. If we didn't already have a busy weekend planned, I might have to go down just for the gluten-free focaccia. I think I know who makes the bread and if I'm right, it will be outstanding and good enough to fool any glutenoid!

Being gluten-free can still be challenging at times

After being gluten-free for over a decade, one would think there's nothing that would throw me.  From weddings to funerals to holiday pa...
