Gluten-Free Birthday Dinner In the Twin Cities?

Thanks everyone for your help on my earlier burger question! We hit the Nook tonight after an afternoon at Valleyfair, and you guys did not steer me wrong. Delicious burgers, cool atmosphere, definitely a WIN!

In light of that, another question! My boyfriend's parents have invited us to join them Tuesday night celebrating his father's birthday. His mother is gluten-intolerant, and his dad doesn't do spicy food especially. Other than that, no restrictions.

We were curious about Brasa, but would welcome any other suggestions. Thanks in advance - you guys are totally the best.

  1. I would encourage trying Brasa...I have never had a bad meal there. If you go to the St. Paul location you can step down to Cafe Latte afterward for one of their gluten-free cakes or cheesecakes.

    1. Brasa is great. Pizza Luce has a lot of gluten free options.

      1. Thank you! We've made reservations for Brasa on Tuesday. I'll check back and let you know how it went!

        1. porterhouse( little Canada and Burnsville) Chianti grill ( Roseville) have an entire menu that is gluten free. I go there with friends all of the time. They like they don't have to feel different or only have one item to choose. food is amazing as well

          1. hi guys! we ate at the st. paul location of brasa. everything (except the garlic toast, which was a fail) was amazing!

            the birthday boy loved it, and his wife was thrilled to have a restaurant where she could eat almost everything (instead of only a handful of choices).

            we'll keep porterhouse and chianti grill in mind next time! thank you all for the fantastic advice. (worth noting: i misspoke earlier, brasa does not take reservations, but the wait was not more than about 15 minutes. it might be more on a weekend.)
