On a recent staff social outing to our neighboring restaurant Cafe21, we were delighted to learn that Chef Leyla is now creating gluten-free, vegetarian, and vegan options, including a beverage made with coconut, almond milk, and turmeric (pictured above). This is a similar recipe to our post-dessert coffee that we will be serving at our 5 Year Anniversary Cake Walk Event.
Cafe21’s fantastic presentation reminded us not only of how much we enjoy their food and drinks, but also how the restaurants in the Gaslamp are changing and adapting to contemporary tastes, and how the presentation of the food itself has truly become an art form.
We also look forward to welcoming our newest neighborhood restaurant around the corner, Saltwater, as well as Métl Bar & Restaurant, and Gaslamp Breakfast Company, all within walking distance of the gallery.
