VV'ers I'm looking for suggestions for ideally a nice intimate MD dinner for Mrs ASE. Our usual go-to for such things is Il Terrazzo however I'd like to do something a bit different, in addition to the fact I-T will be jammed, sitting elbow to elbow more often than not is a bit too intimate, heh.


So a couple of caveats; Mrs ASE does not like seafood or pork, (a little) red meat is fine. Poultry is good. The biggie is that she has celiac disease so gluten free is a must.


Although I'm leaning heavily toward dinner, breakfast is ok (I know because I asked and she signed off on it!) and I found a great Mexican place in Market Square, Fuego's, with an extensive GF menu so that option is covered if we can't settle on dinner.


My old go-to for such evenings was Cafe Brio but I haven't been there for some time. If it gets lots of positive feedback here I'd lean towards it for sure. I'm really interested however in suggestions for dinner places we haven't been to or tried before, and which meet the requirements above, especially the good gluten free requirement. Thanks folks.....

We have found the restaurants at the Empress to be very accommodating to our Celiac requests. Glo also has a robust gluten free menu.

Happy Mother’s Day! Went in early for some admin and to check in, now enjoying the Tsunami Circus matinee.

Mrs Matt R. says she would like a mellow day at home so that’s what she will get! Not going out tonight. I’ll put something on the grill and make a pitcher of margaritas and all will be alright.
