Ledlow is a sister restaurant of Downtown favorites Bar Ama, Baco Mercat, and Orsa & Winston, and like the others, the restaurant has made a name for itself in the Downtown dining scene. The food and ambiance of the restaurant are both awesome, and dishes are meant to be shared, which is great because it allows you to experience more of the menu. The food is clean, healthy, and tasty, and the majority of the menu is gluten free, too! At lunch essentially everything is gluten free except for the sandwiches and toasts, and at dinner, almost the entire menu is GF, and with the exception of a few dishes, what isn’t gluten free can be made GF! …
What amazes me most about Ledlow is how simple, yet elegant the food is. Simple vegetable and lettuce dishes are turned into decadent entrees that taste just as great as they look. To begin, I ordered the lemon-y blistered green beans with kumquat, capers and grated egg; this dish was my absolute favorite of the meal and a definite must order. I also ordered the Early Spring Salad with blood orange, endive, sugar snap, dill, and whipped goat cheese. This dish is one of the prettier salad dishes I have ever seen and it is one of the more popular salads on the menu. Lastly, I dabbled in the Farm Salanova which is organic lettuce, pumpkin seeds, ricotta salata, raisins, and herb dressing; this is a great, light salad option to wet your palette as you gear up for a large meal. In terms of entrees, the majority are gluten free and the dishes that are not GF are pretty evident. For example, the Chicken Schnitzel, Beef Shoulder dressed in cream of wheat, and the Crushed Meatball entree are all obvious no-go’s, but the Pan-Seared Branzino, Grilled Flat Iron Steak, and Confit Duck Leg are nobread approved and calling my name!
Delicious meal, cool outdoor dining space, and a menu that caters to the NOBREAD crowd; I highly recommend adding Ledlow to your list of Downtown restaurants to try! The staff is super friendly, too, and I appreciate their care and attention to diners with allergies and food restrictions!
