Parents’ Night Out
DATE: Saturday, February 23, 2019 , at 7:00 p.m.
LOCATION: Maggiano’s, The Shops at Riverside, 70 Riverside Square, Hackensack, NJ
Please join us for our second Generation GF Northern NJ PARENTS’ NIGHT OUT and enjoy the company and conversation of other parents of gluten-free kids!
Maggiano’s is great at accommodating gluten-free diners. The manager said that the dressings and sauces are all gluten-free. They offer gluten-free pasta, and the chicken, steak, salmon, and tilapia can all be cooked without breading and made gluten-free. The chef will come out to the table and make sure that anybody with a food allergy or restriction is taken care of. Plus, the ice cream and creme brulee are gluten-free, too!
Please note: We will split the check, including tax and tip, by what each person ordered.
TO REGISTER, please email GenerationGF.NorthernNJ@gluten.org with the number of parents attending.
