Eating Gluten-Free at The Chart House in Melbourne, FL

We went to a few restaurants over the course of spring break, but The Chart House was the loveliest of them all. I had a salad from their famous salad bar, pan fried tilapia with ginger coconut rice and green beans and a Crème Brûlée with mix berries for dessert! It was all phenomenal. I have become a huge fan of Crème Brûlée lately because it is naturally gluten-free. My Aunt Jeanne first exposed me too it and I am eternally grateful! 

I always forget to take pictures of my food before I eat it so excuse the bite taken out of the side! Evan got the lava cake which looked simply to die for! I asked if they could make it without flour but they said they couldn't. I'm sure that it could be done but restaurants are generally not as flexible as they could be when allergies are involved so I'll have to try it at home. My Mom has a great recipe from the last cruise they went  on and I'm betting it would be a pretty easy substitution! 

Anyway dessert was obviusly my favorite part of the meal, per usual, but everything else was delicious and the waitstaff was very accommodating. My fish was naturally gluten-free and so was the sides of green beans and ginger coconut rice. We informed them about being gluten-free when we made the reservation and again when we got to the restaurant so there were no problems! Overall the experience was wonderful and I definitely hope we go back again!
