While we were in Chicago for the Celiac Awareness Tour, we decided to stay an extra night and spend some time in the city. After a little research on a few different apps and websites – both Yelp and FindMeGlutenFree recommended Wildfire for dinner.
I’m notorious for making reservations before we go anywhere because I am so impatient and hate waiting in a crowded little area for a table. So I frequently use Opentable.com to secure a seat before leaving the house. The only times available were 5:15pm or 9:30pm. We decided on 5pm because we hadn’t really eaten lunch due to being at the convention.
When we got there, I asked for the gluten free menu. Everyone was very accommodating – Check out this gluten free menu!!
Are you kidding me? Was I dreaming? I hit the gluten free Chicago jack pot. Since we were there and they had this great menu – we were definitely going to try some stuff.
One of the things I miss is being able to order an appetizer occasionally. All of them are usually fried but I really enjoy having a snack before my meal comes.
We decided to try the baked goat cheese. OMG – it came with gluten free pita chips that were to die for.
After looking at the menu – we both decided on a nice juicy cheeseburger on a gluten free bun. How often do I get this? Never so I certainly was going to go for it! Aaron even decided on a gluten free burger with me! They were delicious. The bun tasted great. The burger was delicious with no gluten filled fillers – cooked to perfection!
Then we shared sides of a sweet potato and a twice baked potato. Totally fantastic as well. Enough for 3 people each!
The entire time we were dining – our waitress continued to come back and make sure everything was ok. If I had a question about something, she checked with the chef or the manager and came back to tell me what she found out. I’ve never felt so safe dining out! There needs to be way more gluten free menu restaurants like Wildfire!!
During the meal I enjoyed some wine and they even brought out a gluten free (hot and fresh) bun to eat while Aaron had his regular bread!
I give Wildfire Chicago – 2 HUGE gluten free thumbs up and highly recommend it for someone gluten free looking to eat a delicious meal in Chicago!!
