We were staying in the hotel across the street. There is a parking garage adjacent to the hotel 21c. Fabulous hotel by the way.

Lots. Almost all of the burgers without the bun, all of the mussels, there's a steak and fish tacos with gluten free corn flour tortillas. There's also a gluten free chocolate torte dessert!
