Seasons 52 Gluten Free Menu

Seasons 52 Gluten Free Menu - Scallops

Seasons 52 is a national restaurant whose seasonal menu changes weekly (hence the 52, get it?) Another thing they are known for is that everything on their menu is under 475 calories. Yippee! The restaurants all have a local flavor making this a great place for a work meeting or a place for a special celebration.

Because Seasons 52 is health conscious with their calorie count, it seems only natural for the Seasons 52 Gluten Free Menu to be full of good choices. They have a special menu called ‘Gluten Sensitive Menu’ and they want to be clear with diners that while they offer gluten free dishes, they are not a gluten free kitchen facility.

I have been to the Seasons 52 Santa Monica location now several times both for lunch and dinner and feel good about giving it a solid gluten free menu review. Here’s a look at their menu.

This is what was available at the time I went:

I ordered the scallops with a side of steamed leaf spinach instead of the risotto. It was delicious, and probably more healthy too!

Overall I was very impressed with the Seasons 52 Gluten Free Menu offering. Because they are not a dedicated gluten free facility, they have done their homework and have all the proper warnings up and in place.

If you are gluten sensitive, I would give Seasons 52 my vote of confidence for your gluten free dining experience.

Sprinkles Cupcakes Gluten Free Menu

Sprinkles Cupcakes Gluten Free Red Velvet Cupcakes

Sprinkles Gluten Free Red Velvet Cupcake We are super excited to find out about Sprinkles Cupcakes Gluten Free Menu. Sprinkles has now added a gluten free red velvet cupcake to their menu. You can get a Sprinkles Gluten Free Red Velvet Cupcake any day of the week – they are baked daily unlike other flavors that are only available on certain days or have to be special ordered. I tried the Sprinkles Gluten Free Red Velvet cupcake at their Beverly Hills location. They made sure to put my gluten free red velvet cupcake in a separate bag apart from the other cupcakes I ordered which I appreciated. The gluten free cupcakes also have a G on them so you can know that you are eating a gluten free cupcake. I tried the gluten free red velvet cupcake and I was pretty impressed. It’s been years since I’ve had a cupcake or a Sprinkles one so I can’t really remember what they taste like. The icing tasted the same because the icing is gluten free naturally. The cake tasted pretty good. I did notice a bit of a chalky aftertaste, but it was very mild and the cake had a lot more taste than most gluten free cupcakes I have tried. I have not been able to find out more information on the Sprinkles gluten free cooking practices but I do know their gluten free cupcake is made using gluten free flour and the icing on the red velvet cupcake is their standard cream cheese flavored frosting. I will continue to dig for more information on this and will upload it when I find out more info. If you are looking for gluten free cupcakes for a special someone’s birthday or surprise party, I would say the Sprinkles Gluten Free Red Velvet Cupcake is a surefire winning option.
