Atlanta’s Own Fifth Group Restaurants Go Gluten Free



Fifth Group Restaurants, home to South City Kitchen, La Tavola Trattoria, Ecco, El Taco and Bold American Events and Catering, recently rolled out new gluten free menus for all their restaurants.

In a press release from the company, Partner Robby Kukler says "People who suffer from gluten allergies suffer 365 days a year, therefore restaurants should offer practical solutions for every meal, every day of the year, too."

I couldn’t agree more Kukler. It’s great to see large restaurant groups taking on gluten free menu options in their kitchens.

While I couldn’t find the gluten free menus on their website yet, the press release offers a good amount of detail. From chile braised short ribs at El Taco, to mushroom soup at Ecco, Smoked risotto with butternut squash at La Tavola Trattoria and Coca-Cola braised beef brisket at South City Kitchen it seems there are many delicious offerings to choose from.

Being the Mexican food fanatic that I am, I’ve been dying to try El Taco. I’ve been waiting for February so I could get their great deal of a free taco with the purchase of any margarita (Tacos and margaritas- who can say no to that?) but now with the release of the gluten free menus I’ll definitely make sure to dine there soon.

Look for reviews to come!
