Situated in the beautiful Hall on Franklin, Poké Rose boasts an entirely gluten free menu. Using tamari and tamarind sauces instead of traditional soy sauce, they serve up some of the tastiest poké bowls we have ever tasted. We recommend ordering their Tamarind-Curry Crab & Jasmine Rice bowl or House-made Tofu & Baby Kale Salad.

We can’t have a gluten-free dining guide and leave out Fresh Kitchen! Their entire menu is 100% gluten-free. Fresh Kitchen’s healthy take on fast casual suits any on-the-go lifestyle while keeping their food to high healthy eating standards. Any combination of their bowl ingredients goes well together, but we recommend starting with a sweet potato noodle base and finishing with their coconut sriracha sauce. While you’re in line, don’t forget to grab yourself a pack of their chocolate-chip cookies and a Macho Milk (matcha green tea, almond milk, maple, cinnamon, sea salt).
