Gift Cards for Gluten Sensitives: Darden Restaurants

I used to feel the same way about gift cards as I did when a guest would come over for dinner bearing a bottle of Yellow Tail purchased from the 7-Eleven down the road from my house — that they didn't really put any thought into it at all after I spent a ton of time planning a menu for the wonderful meal they were about to consume.

Darden Restaurant Gift Cards for Gluten Sensitives

I've not changed my view on the Yellow Tail thing, but I've completely changed my opinion on gift cards – especially when they are from stores that I love.

Over time, I've realized that gift cards are a great way to budget for the holidays, perfect for last-minute gifts and hostess gifts, they're more likely to be used than another tie or sweater.

Gift cards work really well for people on your list that you may not have a close relationship with (think co-worker Secret Santa gift exchanges, your mailman, your kiddo's teacher, etc.)

Darden Restaurants – Gift Cards for Gluten Sensitives

If you're looking for a gift card for someone that has a gluten sensitivity, I recommend Darden Restaurants Gift Cards.

Darden's family of restaurant brands include Bahama Breeze, The Capital Grille, Eddie V's, Longhorn Steakhouse, Olive Garden, Season's 52 and Yard House.

While their kitchens are not gluten-free environments, each restaurant offers a selection of items without gluten-containing ingredients. I've listed links to Darden Restaurant's gluten-sensitive menu's below for easy reference.

My favorite has to be The Capital Grille. I'm addicted to their Calamari with Hot Cherry Peppers, Sesame Seared Tuna with Gingered Rice and their Grilled Asparagus with Lemon Mosto. My husband can't get enough of their NY Strip and Au Gratin Potatoes.

I really like the fact that all of the servers that we've had were prepared to answer all fo the questions that I had regarding their gluten-sensitive options. It was nice to be able to ask a server if they had Tamari and not get a “Hmmm???” as a response.

So, be a good dinner guest, don't stop at 7-Eleven for Yellow Tail. Hit up a CVS or Walgreens for a Darden Restaurants Gift Card or buy one online here.

Darden Restaurants Gluten Sensitive Menus:

Notes: Bahama Breeze does not offer a gluten-sensitive menu but the chef can make suggestions.

Disclosure – if you happen to buy a Darden Restaurant Gift Card from a link in this post, I will make a couple of bucks. And when I say a couple of bucks, I mean it. It would take about 50 people to buy one $25.00 gift card each for me to earn enough money for my typical dinner there. I just figured I'd tell you that because well.. you should know.
