Celiac Resaurant Review: Slightly North of Broad aka S.N.O.B.
Slightly North of Broad (S.N.O.B.) is in fact slightly north of Broad St. in Charleston, SC. It is definitely upscale dining for the gourmand, but not ridiculously pricey and very casual on the diners end of things (in stark contrast to the tie- and apron-wearing servers and ornate interior).
S.N.O.B. has a entirely gluten free menu in addition to the regular menu, which you can peruse on their website. They also have certain daily specials that are gluten-free. The waitstaff seemed very knowledgeable about gluten-free ingredients and cross-contamination in the kitchen and plating (server ensured a separate plate for bread for shared charcuterie plate). They also design meals around local, sustainable ingredients (we had green figs!).
Oh and how divine everything tasted! The liver and head cheese on the charcuterie plate were amazing! I had tuna crudo (avocado, citrus, arugula, radish, basil oil, citron vinaigrette) and beef carpaccio (thinly sliced raw beef, red wine Dijon vinaigrette, capers, Pecorino Romano) as my dinner, both of which conformed more or less to my paleo/FODMAPs leaning! If you have Celiac Disease or if you are healthy as pie, definitely, definitely eat here!
How apropos, a National Geographic article on traveling with Celiac Disease!
“In Italy, for example, the government screens for celiac in children by the time they reach school age. Those who test positive receive subsidies to help pay for expensive gluten-free groceries.”
Our healthcare system doesn’t seem to operate on a preemptive/preventive plane. One can get a tax break for gluten-free food items, but you have to document the prices of normal food and receipts for gluten-free versions as proof, and I don’t buy many gluten-free alternatives (though I DO pay more than I used to for a refrigerator full of meat, fruit, veg).
