Tapas restaurant in Washington, DC with gluten-free choices, May 31, 2011
reviewer: GFFoodCritic from Washington, DC metro area
Jaleo is a Spanish Tapas Bar and Restaurant. I heard their menu noted gluten free and dairy free choices so I was excited to go. Before we went I downloaded their menu so I could review it and have an idea of what they served. I looked for items that I thought would be gluten free and sounded good to me. When we arrived I asked for the gluten free and dairy free menu. They brought out two menus…one with the gluten free items and the other with the dairy free items. I’m not sure why they couldn’t make these notes on one menu. So I took the menu I had downloaded, printed and brought with me and started making notes. I marked which items were gluten free and which were dairy free. When one had both, I circled it. Now I could see what my choices really were. I picked Shrimp with Garlic, Spanish Omelet with Potatoes and Onions and a Homemade Pork Sausage with sauteed White Beans. When the Shrimp arrived it looked like and smelled like they had used butter. I asked and was assured there was no butter. Well it didn’t have butter but it tasted like it. The combination of oils and brandy made it taste like butter. I could have eaten 4 more plates of that. My husband ordered the Mushrooms with Garlic. They were to die for. I couldn’t get enough and kept stealing his meal. So this restaurant was a big hit and I can’t wait to go back. Their menu has 67 items. It is full of vegetables, seafood, and meats. Some are gluten free, some are dairy free and some are both. There are more Jaleo restaurants in Bethesda and Crystal City. Jaleo is under the direction of Chef Jose Andres and the Jose Andres Think Food Group. They also own Cafe Atlantico, minibar by Jose Andres, Zaytinya, and Oyamel.
