The menu at Gigi’s on Fairmount is styled on Small Plate Appetizers, Salads and Soups, and a variety of Bruschetta. They also offer 3 entrees at dinner which your server will describe as they change daily. There are a number of items on the menu that are naturally g-f but the restaurant carries g-f bread (Udi’s) so even the Bruschetta can be accommodated.
On my first visit to Gigi’s our table shared an olive medley and cheese platter that were both substantial and beautifully presented. We also had salads that were plentiful enough to be entrees. Of the three entrees offered on the day I dined 2 of the 3 were g-f. My choices were Seared Scallops on garlic grits and Braised Lamb Shank over mashed potatoes. Both dishes included a lovely selection of beans and carrots in the plating of the entrees.
The dining experience at Gigi’s was very pleasant. Our server was gracious, attentive and knowledgeable. The room is a bit on the dark side but there is candlelight and reflections on all the mirrored walls so the room appears large and welcoming. The adjacent lounge has a bar and lovely sofa and cluster seating for a group gathering. On nice weather days the sidewalk patio looks to be quite welcoming.
While the wine list is limited it includes some very wonderful wines from around the world. Our party enjoyed a Savignon Blanc from Australia, a Montepulciano from Italy, and a Pinot Noir from Oregon. Cocktails are also served at Gigi’s.
