Last night, my husband and I were going out for dinner, and there was too long of a wait where we started out, so we pushed on to try a restaurant that had been recommended by our daughter. In Crystal Lake, 1776 offered great menu in a tastefully appointed restaurant. Although we don’t frequently drink wine, their selection was extensive, and award-winning.
The room was a bit dark, so I don’t have photos to share, but the dinners were quite delicious and artfully presented. My husband chose the jambalaya (the seasoning was just right), and I had the daily special, grilled scallops.
A real bonus – the room is not too noisy for conversation. More and more, that has become a consideration in our restaurant choices.
It was only after our dinner that I was checking reviews online, and I found out that the owner of the restaurant is celiac, so is very attentive to menu options that are gluten free. I hadn’t even asked about this when we were ordering, since I had a bottle of Glutenease with me, so I had planned on having the table bread.
Have any of you been introduced to this product? I had been told about it by a friend several weeks previously, and have been experimenting occasionally. I haven’t been disappointed yet. I can eat table bread and regular pasta. I need to discuss it with my physician.
I highly recommend 1776 for a fine dining experience. We plan to go back again soon.
