Ever since going gluten free, Oliver and Bonacini has been a staple restaurant of mine. I have been to three different locations: Bayview, Front and Blue Mountain. Needless to say, I have narrowed down some of my favourite dishes – mac & cheese and lemon posset being top of the list.
The gluten free macaroni and cheese with chicken and green peas is comfort food at it’s best! Like most kids, I grew up on Kraft Dinner, so it’s always a nice treat to eat this grown up version made with goat cheese, Fontina and aged white cheddar. The staff are always very knowledgeable about allergies – which is what is expected at such a nice restaurant. They always have gluten free pasta on hand. When you order the mac & cheese gluten free, the kitchen skips using flour as a thickener to the sauce and doesn’t add breadcrumbs to the top. This makes the cheese sauce a bit more runny, but hey you’ll never hear me complaining – it’s delicious!
