Blackie’s Bulldog Tavern
Hanging out at a bar isn’t the easiest way to avoid grains, but sit a few feet from the beer and Blackie’s offers the state’s most inventive approach to protein-rich eating. You can take the really clean approach: Tuna poke with avocado and pineapple is a summer ritual. But regulars gravitate toward the pulled pork nachos, one of the paleo power plates with braised brisket and two sides, or even the shwarma-style Baffoni chicken piled onto corn tortillas. There are even several gluten-free beers, a cider and cocktails for those who can’t forgo a tipple.
