$45 for family style pizza and pasta, and bring your own beer and wine; no wonder Eleven B has become an ideal group dinner location. Unfortunately, NOT ideal for us in the nobread crowd. I went to Eleven B recently for a birthday party and assumed I wouldn’t be able to eat anything, so I went equipped with almonds in my pocket and potato chips in my bag. However, to my delight, I left dinner pretty full thanks to all the salad starters and platters of grilled chicken. Yes I would have preferred the pizza and meatballs, but I was happy to see that nobread options DO exist…
Off of the main menu, I recommend the cold antipasto, spinach with goat cheese salad (nodairy for me), and mescalin mix salad to start. If you like mushrooms, the grilled portobello mushrooms are also gluten free and the burgers are gluten free when you order them nobread (I don’t think I saw one burger ordered in the restaurant). The “homemade specialties” at Eleven B are 100% off-limits and this section of the menu should really be named “pasta and breadcrumbs.” The last section of the menu is titled “chicken.” I thought this section would be the answer to all my problems, but it is STILL pretty tough to order from! The 7 chicken entrées shrinks to 2 and you are left to choose from the grilled chicken with sautéed vegetables (tomato, artichokes, and broccoli) and the sliced chicken breast with portobello and sundried tomato. If you want to supplement your meal with some veggies, the broccoli and spinach side orders are perfect.
Would I come back here again? For an event or birthday- sure. But there are A LOT more restaurants out there serving better quality and more allergy sensitive foods.
