Duck Foot East Village Taproom & Kitchen (Permanently Closed)
Duck Foot Brewing serves gluten free food at its East Village restaurant and taproom, where even the beer has been stripped of the stuff. The Brazilian cheese bread ($7), or Pão de queijo, is already meant to be made with gluten free cassava and/or tapioca flours.
Going a different cheesy direction is the mac and cheese ($9), where corn and quinoa based pasta swims in a creamy blend of melted cheddar, jack, and smoked gouda. There’s an option to add pulled pork or buffalo chicken for $3, mushrooms or kale for $2.
That standard of Spanish tapas bars, patatas bravas ($7), is interpreted here as smashed baby potatoes topped with scallions and chipotle aioli. If you want them made a little extra, add egg ($1) or shrimp ($3). It's deceptively casual food for a casual taproom and restaurant right beside the Park & Market trolley stop, and it will help you forget you ever worried about gluten.
NOTE: Closed in 2022
