Gluten Free Girl: Green Restaurant

Green Restaurant
2289 E Beltline Ave NE, Ste. B
, Grand Rapids, (616) 447-8294

Item: Jalapeno Chipotle Cheese Burger with Bison
Price: $13.49, plus $0.60 for a GF bun

If you're following a gluten free diet, one thing you might not get enough of is quality bread. At Green Restaurant, located on the East Beltline between Biggby Coffee and Noodles & Company, the homemade bread is so tasty that owner Mike Meyer sells it by the loaf. At $7.99, it's gluten, dairy and egg free, making it ideal for vegans, too.

Green Restaurant also offers a variety of local organic and all-natural meats. Burgers can be ordered with bison, elk, veggie, turkey, lamb, grass-fed beef or the burger of the month. (Price varies depending on which patty you choose.)

My winning combination is the Jalapeno Chipotle Cheese Burger with bison meat on a gluten-free bun. It's made with jalapenos, cheddar cheese, lettuce and a homemade chipotle aioli. Oh, and did I mention it comes with a side of homemade gluten free buttery garlic chips that are the next best thing to Crack Fries? One word: delish!
