Gluten-free dining at Thomas Keller’s restaurants

Bread basket at The French Laundry

One day, a guest tasted Lenas brioche and cried because she hadnt eaten bread for seven years. Lena and her mentor, Thomas Keller, Chef/Owner of The French Laundry, decidedthey had to find a way to share this premium gluten-free flour with more people. Given that information, I thought The French Laundry would be sensitive to gluten-free eaters, making substitutions and offering a separate basket containing breads made with the Cup 4 Cup flour. Not so much. When I initially confirmed the reservation two months out, the reservationist inquired whether anyone in our party had allergies. She noted in the file that my husband avoids gluten. When reconfirming our meal arrangements the week before, she once again confirmed that we had a guest eating gluten-free. Once seated, the waiter confirmed that he had seen the file notation that my husband eats gluten-free. He spoke briefly about the few menu items containing gluten. When they were delivered to the table, each of the three croutons balanced on the artfully crafted dish were pointed out with care. While we didnt ask for accommodations, we were surprised that they didnt leave off items like the tweezer-placed bread cubes or the crumbled dacquoise cake. The bread basket made its way by our table several times, conspicuously lacking the gluten-free brioche that gave Cup 4 Cup its start. The Bouchon Bakery cookbook even has the recipe for this famous gluten-free brioche. When we visited the bakery itself, however, we were interested to find that while Cup 4 Cup could be found for sale on the bakery shelves, not a single pastry was made using the product. We discovered that Ad Hoc, with a family-style concept least conducive to accommodating gluten-free diners, was actually the most sensitive to guests needs.
