BrickTop's In Franklin, Tennessee: Gluten-Free Done Well,

It's not a unique phenomenon for a new restaurant to open in the Cool Springs-Franklin area. And now that the McEwen area has started making good on their much-anticipated promises, this is becoming a hot retail, residential, and restaurant location. But I've been watching the progress of this restaurant in particular, because I had a feeling that it would be good for the gluten-free community. (And I couldn't wait to dine on that super cool, outdoor, covered patio!) BrickTop's has locations in Atlanta, Charlotte, St. Louis, Naples, and Nashville on West End. I'd been to the West End location once, years ago, and I was thrilled that the server understood gluten issues. I had just resigned myself to my default order: "I'll just have a salad with balsamic vinegar and olive oil on the side, and no croutons or bread, because I have a gluten allergy," when the server's eyes lit up and he explained that he, too, couldn't eat gluten. Fifteen minutes later, I had fish tacos on corn tortillas with extra corn tortillas to dip in my guacamole as an appetizer. (He had warned against the tortilla chips as they didn't have a dedicated fryer.) When you are taken care of at a restaurant, the experience is not long forgotten. That one experience gave me hope that the new BrickTop's had potential. I was not disappointed. Last week, we took friends to the new BrickTop's at West McEwen Drive in Cools Springs, and I was pleased to see that they have developed a very extensive gluten-free menu since my Nashville visit. From appetizers, salads, and sides, to steak, chicken, and fish, this menu contains something for every gluten-free diner to enjoy. And every question that I had about specials, sauces, and the vegetable of the day was immediately taken back the chef to check on possible gluten-containing ingredients. And more importantly to the return visitor (which I plan on being), I was not treated as a problem customer. Our server was more than willing to assure me that my experience would be a safe and delightful one. After much deliberation (isn't it wonderful to have options?), I settled on the Atlantic Salmon with a side of Brown Rice and the Fresh Vegetable which was a delicious creamed cauliflower that I must replicate at home soon. Tennessee is landlocked, and I'm a California girl who adores seafood. If we want good seafood, we usually go to Bonefish Grill where the fish is flown in fresh and served with some of my favorite gluten-free sauces. But I am convinced that this piece of salmon from BrickTop's is the best that I've had in Nashville, or on the coast for that matter. It's that good. And we definitely left room for dessert. BrickTop's was a delightful dining experience as a gluten-free diner. (And our gluten-enjoying friends had wonderful meals as well.) I'd highly recommend BrickTop's for your next meal out.
