K38 - Las Olas
Just ate at the newest installation of the K38 empire, Las Olas, at the Forum Shops at Landfall (in the out parcel). The manager (I think his name was Teddie) told me they now have a new stand alone kitchen (for all their restaurants) that makes all the chips in a dedicated fryer and that they now are gluten-free (unlike in the past). He also told me that for people like myself with severe food allergies (or auto-immune reactions in my case) that they can do all the prep at Las Olas in a separate clean part of the kitchen to address cross-contamination issues. I was truly astounded by this manager's knowledge of gluten-containing sauces, items, etc. on menu! There are many restaurants where we all can tell the staff is "winging it" and really barely understand the issue -- NOT the case here.
