Lucky 32 - Gluten Free Menu Update

I heard from the General Manager of Lucky 32 in Cary recently. I had previously written about their GF notations on their regular menu and gave the warning that this in fact means "Guilt Free" and NOT Gluten Free.

Lucky 32 does indeed have a Gluten Free menu available upon request and I have placed portions of it below. The menu may have items on it that are actually no longer available but they indicated they do attempt to keep it up to date.
-Lucky’s Lunch
Turkey, havarti cheese, carrot sticks, and fresh fruit.

Slices of both dark and light moist roast turkey meat from all natural free-range birds raised locally for us, sit atop a bed of crisp mixed greens. Bacon, red onions, toasted pecans and Granny Smith apples add brightness and diversity of flavors. The salad is finished with four slices of avocado, blue cheese crumbles and blue cheese dressing.

-Citrus Chicken Salad
Bright and complimentary flavors are the hallmark of this delicious salad. Chicken breasts (7 ounce) have been marinated overnight in a mixture of lemon peel, garlic, Dijon mustard, sherry vinegar and herbs. The chicken is grilled, sliced and placed over a bed of mixed greens. Four wedges of fresh pear, green onions and toasted walnut breadcrumbs garnish the plate. Please ask your guest for choice of dressing.

My husband and I ate at Lucky32 last night for a group Christmas party. We ordered from their gluten free menu and even talked with the waitress about specifications. Before the meal was even over, my husband was sick and knew immediately that he had been glutened. :( We are not convinced that Lucky32 is knowledgeable enough to provide 100% gluten free menu options.

Has anyone else had a similar experience?

His amount of suffering was indicative of more than just a little gluten or cross-contamination.
