Go gluten-free at The Butcher's Wife, a casual bistro that takes intolerances seriously. Instead of just a couple of gluten-free options on the menu, the restaurant takes steps to ascertain that not even a trace of gluten appears in its dishes – while offering a whole variety of options that are sure to hit the spot.
Start your meal with tapioca and mozzarella bread with miso charcoal butter ($9), a take on the Brazillian pão de queijo that's crisp, dense and immensely satisfying. Another favourite are the crispy pig's ears ($16), a DIY baby gem lettuce wrap with piquillo peppers, pickled kohlrabi and sriracha mayo to balance out the deep fried pigs ears. Vegetarians aren't forgotten either, with options like the pumpkin gnocchi ($23) with Brussels sprouts, sage butter and a generous shaving of parmesan cheese but if it's meat you fancy, look no further than the chestnuts pappardelle ($29), silky slivers of pasta coated in a ossobucco ragu that's been braised for eight hours – so satisfying, you'll completely forget that you're in a gluten-free spot.
