Thanks to the rising prevalence of celiac disease and gluten sensitivity, consumer demand for gluten-free foods has reached an all-time high. At UNION Restaurant and Bar Latino, we understand how serious gluten sensitivity can be, and although we do not advertise ourselves as a gluten-free restaurant, we have a variety of great-tasting, gluten-free dishes on our menu to accommodate specific dietary sensitive.
