News & Notes: December 4, 2015

The California-based, classic-rock themed Yard House chain opens its first area location tomorrow at the Moorestown Mall (400 Rt. 38, 856-722-5620). The from-scratch (CYA) "gluten sensitive" menu includes appetizers, salads, steaks and seafood. Drinks include four different hard ciders.

South Philly BYOB L'Angolo Ristorante (1415 W. Porter St., 215-389-4252) offers gluten-free fusilli (prepared in separate water) and can make several entrees gluten free.

Touch of Italy, with two locations in Southern Delaware - Rehoboth Beach (19724 Coastal Hwy., 302-227-3900) and Lewes (101 Second St., 302-827-2730) offers a gluten-free menu that includes gluten-free pasta dishes.

Northern Delaware now has a gluten-free bakery to call its own. Sweetopia (888-576-2598) offers delivery within 10 miles of the Wilmington/Greenville area for a $5 charge. The menu includes a variety of cakes, cookies and sweet breads.

If you missed Tuesday's blog post, you can read my review of Rittenhouse Square's homey Waffles & Wedges, which offers gluten-free waffles and variety of potato wedges.

Tomorrow is the 5th Annual Valley Forge Beer & Cider Festival at the Greater Philly Expo Center in Oaks, Pennsylvania. Attendees will be able to sample 14 different hard ciders as well as Spiked Seltzer, which I wrote about in October. Tickets are still available for the 12:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. sessions. The event will help support the local Committee to Benefit the Children (CBC) at St. Christopher’s Hospital in their efforts to improve the quality of life for children and families who face cancer, leukemia and serious blood disorders.

Have a great weekend!
