Stoney River Steakhouse

My brother-in-law and his family live in Cumming, Georgia, a suburb of Atlanta.  They have a 13 year old son who is a Food Network addict and budding foodie.  His favorite restaurant in the world is Stoney River Steak House, an upscale chain with a handful of locations in the Southeast (primarily Georgia, Maryland, and Tennessee).  

Stoney River does not have a dedicated gluten free menu, but the waiter at the Roswell, GA location was knowledgeable and recommended the Coffee Cured Filet Mignon, which has a coffee, molasses and brown sugar glaze, served with caramelized shallot mashed potatoes.  Mmmmm.  It was wonderful.  
The restaurant is well known for it's rolls, which is unfortunate for the celiac diner, but the waiter brought me a little plate of fruit to make up for it.  (He admitted he stole it from the kitchen; it's not standard policy).  It was hard to feel too sorry for myself when I was presented with a plate of illicit berries.  Why is forbidden fruit always the best?

All in all, I have to agree that Brandon has good taste.  Now if I could just get him to stop ruining his steaks by ordering them well-done....
