Where to find a gluten-free bag of doughnuts in Carytown

There's a delicious gluten-free doughnut now available at Burtons Grill in Carytown.

Why it matters: It's National Doughnut Day, and Burton's is one of a handful of local places where folks who can't or don't eat gluten can reliably find the fried treat.

The big picture: I am a big fan of gluten and eat it whenever possible, but I have a few gluten-free friends who I dine with regularly and definitely don't appreciate it when I mock them for it.

  • Yes, but: I say if I, a gluten-positive individual, am willing to split a gluten-free anything, I can say what I want.

Zoom in: Boston-based Burtons Grill, which specializes in being aggressively dietary restriction-friendly, opened its first Richmond location last summer.

  • The entire menu is available with gluten-free options, including at Saturday and Sunday brunch when diners can find the gluten-free bag of doughnuts.
  • $10 gets you a baker's dozen of house-made cinnamon doughnuts covered in powered sugar and served alongside a cream cheese dipping sauce.
  • And I, a gluten-positive diners, can attest, they taste just like the real thing, if not a little better. Like funnel cake in a bag, but possibly healthier because of no gluten?

The bottom line: These doughnuts are fantastic.
