Remember last week, when I mentioned TGI Friday’s gluten-free menu and promised more information?
Well here it is. I’m very pleased to be able to share with you the TGI Friday’s Allergen Menu, straight from the proverbial horse’s mouth.
As you can see, the menu covers the top eight allergens, including wheat. They also indicate which items have MSG added to them. The last page is a listing of which items are gluten-free, and how to order them to make them safe to eat.
It’s not an overwhelmingly large selection — much of the menu is fundamentally wheaty, after all — but what is listed can be eaten with reasonable confidence. A disclaimer on the menu reminds diners that there are shared prep areas. Since cross-contamination remains a concern, you’ll still want to bring your dining card along and make sure to explain your needs to your server each time.
Have you been to TGI Friday’s since they introduced their new gluten-free menu? If so, what did you think of it?
