Solstice Seasonal Cuisine - Gluten Free

Solstice Seasonal Cuisine on 124 Street - 

We had the delightful opportunity to go out with friends and dine at the newer restaurant Solstice ~ and looking forward to going back.  
As they comment in their mission statement - they use fresh local seasonal ingredients so their menu does change throughout the year, to reflect the earth's seasons.

After emailing and then reserving on Open Table - both times noting the gluten free and no cross contamination requirement for dining - we were excited to go and try out this charming restaurant.  I have to say the service was excellent right from the moment we sat down, our server very knowledgeable in our requirements and what the chefs were creating in the kitchen.  And all the delicious plates that came to our table did not disappoint - delicious.
Presentation was eye catching - even the drinks had a special touch.



These dishes were from their Spring/early Summer menu - and just taking a look at their new menu for the season now - I think it is time for another visit soon.

Vivo Ristorante - Gluten Free Evening


Vivo Ristorante 18352 Lessard Road - We went with another couple - Vivo caters to delicious food made to share ... great evening with amazing food 
~ Fine dining suited to a special evening where the company and food are the focus. ‪#‎glutenfree‬ ‪#‎yegfood‬ ‪#‎yegeats‬ ‪#‎celiac‬

Our party all ate gluten free this evening ... and the service was excellent - the manager (when we questioned the olives that came to the table) even delighted us with a great story of how their olives came from Turkey through connections for their restaurant.
