Gluten-Free Eating on a Busy Schedule
The inn was a private home built by a department store owner in 1910, and was converted to a bed-and-breakfast inn with a restaurant about 20 years ago. My neighbors owned it then, and built up a solid reputation for period elegance.
The inn changed hands a few times until it was purchased six years ago by a stylish couple who enjoy travel and cuisine. Today the sunny back room restaurant sports the colors of deep Provence. I can enjoy lunch looking over the back yard, where my mother picked lilies of the valley for her wedding bouquet.
Because this is my neighborhood restaurant, it is an easy place to turn to on a night when neither my husband nor I feel like cooking.
My community is blessed with many wonderful places to eat, from classic hamburger joints to fine dining experiences.
Another young chef is set to open an Italian restaurant later this year. When that opening takes place, I will report back. He has promised gluten-free pasta!
