Walnut Room Rolls Out New Gluten-Free Menu and Beverage Options


WEBWIRE – Monday, March 25, 2013

Denver, CO, March 25, 2013 –– The Walnut Room’s two locations have expanded their gluten-free offerings to provide more options for customers avoiding gluten.  In addition to offering individual, gluten-free pizzas (made from Udi’s Gluten Free Pizza crust), the pizzerias have added gluten-free bread for its wide array of sandwiches and a flourless torte.

The Walnut Room restaurants have also expanded their gluten-free beverages to include the Strongbow Cider at the Broadway location (2 N. Broadway) and Magners at the Walnut Street eatery (3131 Walnut St.)

Gluten intolerance is on the rise in the United States, affecting an estimated 6 percent of Americans. However, it’s estimated that as much as 15 percent to 25 percent of the population is choosing to go gluten-free.  Gluten is present in breads, pastries, pastas, pies, and dozens of other wheat-based foods. Even some gluten-free foods such as French fries may be contaminated with gluten if they are fried in oil in which breaded foods have been prepared.

Given the pervasiveness of gluten, it can be difficult for people with gluten sensitivity to find familiar comfort food such as pizza, sandwiches and desserts on restaurant menus.

“We are proud to offer our gluten-sensitive customers more choices to make their dining experience more varied,” said Leslie Odell, Director of Operations. “We’ve worked hard to find high-quality, gluten-free products that will enable diners to enjoy a much wider range of our menu offerings. Our gluten-free sandwich and pizza selections will be available on the $6.50 lunch special at both locations, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Monday through Friday, as well as for home delivery.”
 
About the Walnut Room
Launched in 2005, The Walnut Room arose out of owner John Burr’s vision to combine his expanded rehearsal studio business, Soundstructure Studios, with a place where local musicians could relax after a rehearsal session and enjoy St. Louis style thin-crust pizza, sandwiches, and beverages. That concept evolved into a full-service restaurant/bar and live-music venue, the Walnut Room in Denver’s River North (RiNo) neighborhood, where bands can hone their performance skills and music fans can enjoy some of the area’s best talent. The Walnut Room has hosted a range of fledgling local bands as well as established national acts, including Chris Isaak, Jewel, the Flobots, Churchill and The Fray. In 2009, Burr opened a second Walnut Room on South Broadway and Ellsworth Avenue in southeast Denver. Both Walnut Room locations offer lunch, happy hour, dinner, a late-night menu, takeout and delivery, and catering options. Check websites or Facebook for current lineups and upcoming events.
