kellyboneThe menu at @pestocraft oddly offers what looks like a menu key--with little symbols for categories like "locally sourced," "gluten-free," and "vegan-friendly"--but not a single menu item is accompanied by a symbol. A note on the wall states "ask us about our vegan options" so we did which seemed to startle the counter staff with a lot of "ummm" "ahhh" culminating in "tell us what you want and we can tell you if it's vegan." "Ok, well, can we have a large vegan pizza, half pineapple and olives half sun-dried tomato and basil." "Sorry, the gluten free crust only comes in small." "Yeah, well I want gluten so can I please have the large... and an order of garlic knots. Is the pesto vegan?" "No, sorry, it's not" "Ok, then no pesto... can we have marinara sauce instead?" "Sure"
The Garlic Knots (4 for $3.50) arrived at our table smother in the signature, cheesy, pesto... The waitress took them back and returned with fresh knots and a side of marinara. From this point forward, the meal went well. The knots were good, and the marinara is crushed Bianco @dinapolitomatoes which I love.

- vampy2Get it together @pestocraft
- gwentz@kellybone 🤦🏻♀️oh man... I've had the gluten-free discussion so many times. Give me all the gluten!! Just don't give me animals stuff! "Ok so no meat, extra cheese, and gluten free crust?" 😭haha
- gwentz^^ I mean in general - I've never been to Pesto Craft
- alidasuzanneIt's amazing how people seem to confuse vegan with gluten-free!
- kellybone@alidasuzanne @gwentz... And this mix up is happening more and more. While I find it annoying, I feel bad for the likely low wage staff who are rarely trained on the menus ingredients. This is why I strongly argue that it's an economic benefit for menus to have allergen notation--plus it saves face for everyone.
