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.

  1. It is a darling place but a year ago I got sick because they made my gluten-free bread in the same maker that they made the other sandwiches in.

    1. Harriet,
      Thank you so much for noting the problem you had at Gigi’s!
      It is a good reminder to all of us to share with every server, every time, the importance of the handling of foods prepared for us.
      As a side note, when this happens to me, I email or call the restaurant and let them know.
      They cannot fix what they don’t know is broken.
      Plus making contact will inform as to how receptive they are to being told about issues.
      Also, we invite you to continue sharing your experiences at our site – the network is just one more way to keep us all safe.
