If a sign reads "gluten-free," it's safe to assume that someone is either selling gluten for zero nickels or celebrating the delayed emancipation of the lone citizen in the land of Glute. Viva la evolution of eating with today's Groupon: for $14, you get choice of two pizzas (a $19 value) plus an order of wings (a $10 value) or tofu nugettes (an $8 value) at Perch, located in the Artist Resource Centre (up to a $29 total value).
Perch feeds the people with an eclectic menu highlighted by gluten-free pizzas topped with vegan and carnivore-friendly accoutrements. The barbecued pulled pork, marble cheddar, and slaw on the #10 entice adventurous eaters and enthusiasts of the number 10, and chefs cover the #1 in familiar standards of tomato, basil, and mozzarella in a balsamic reduction. Vegan options abound and include temptations such as the #4, layering yams, arugula, and cashews atop vegan cheese. For an appetizer or ironic dessert, the tofu nugettes and wings come accompanied by choice of barbecue, maple, Thai peanut, hot, or "lu~icide" sauce. Though not included in today's Groupon, diners can grab gluten-free beers and dessert while enjoying Perch's decor of clean, modern lines balanced by green cushions, a sparkling chandelier, rotating artwork, and a resident tightrope walker.
