For the last five years it has become a tradition for my girlfriends and me to get together at the Melting Pot for its' Ladies or Teacher Appreciation nights. The deals are great, the food is great and it's the perfect leisurely atmosphere for my girlfriends and me to catch up and enjoy each others' company. When I was diagnosed with my gluten intolerance I was afraid this tradition was going to have to end. However, last night I happily discovered that Melting Pot was more than capable of taking care of my gluten free needs. Not only do they have a gluten free menu available, they have trained each staff member to be fully knowledgeable of the ingredients and able to make the adjustments needed for me to feel comfortable eating everything presented. We were given a gluten free bowl for the night where they made my cheese with cornstarch and a gluten free lager. My salad was made without croutons and with gluten free dressing. For the meat course my plate was made with extra shrimp, chicken and regular beef to make up for the lack of teriyaki steak and tortellini pockets. And all the chocolate options except for two were gluten free. Overall, it was a delightful night and I feel fully comfortable recommending the Melting Pot to anyone with a gluten allergy.

I'm a stay at home mom and writer who has been living in the NOVA area for the past nine years. I love to shop and I love good food. I'm hoping that combo will pay off as I seek out the best gluten free food in the NOVA area. Enjoy!
