Milestones Gluten Free Menu
We had a wonderful dinner at Milestones Bar and Grill in Markham last Saturday night. They have a gluten free menu, which included 2 appetizers, 3 entrees, and 2 desserts. The starters included the Milestones' Caprese Salad and the Milestones' California Spring Salad, the entrees included the grilled mediterranean chicken, tomato basil brown rice spaghettini, and certified angus beef top sirloin, and the desserts included a ganache torte and premium italian vanilla gelato with house-made caramel sauce. As well, they were willing to do any of the pasta dishes off the standard menu with brown rice pasta. Now, I must say, although the gluten free menu was very appealing, there was a disclaimer at the bottom, saying cross-contamination may occur during preparation. Disclaimers always make me weary, however they did take our gluten free concerns very seriously. Our waitor Jess was very knowledgeable and attentive and the manager on duty that night, Hannah, came over to our table to discuss ingredients and just double check that everything would be safe. All this was done without us asking and I appreciated the extra care they took in making sure our gluten free needs were met. We ordered the beef sirloin entree and the gelato for dessert off the gluten free menu and it was delicious. The gluten free meal came at the same time as the other meals (which is a bonus because often you wait for gluten free meals in restaurants) and we had a wonderful evening. I must say, it was also a Saturday evening before Christmas, the place was very busy, and they had no problems meeting our expectations!!!! We will be going back to this restaurant for sure.
