Eating paleo means more than just scarfing down meat. A commitment to an ancestral lifestyle includes outdoor activity, a sense of play, and eating the whole, natural foods available to our hunter-gatherer forebears. There's no room in the diet for grains, especially wheat, which plays well at places that are sensitive to gluten intolerance. The kitchen at Shine Restaurant is entirely gluten-free, but that doesn't mean its dishes are free of flavor. The finest example of this is a brunch option of a moist, lightly smoked trout filet atop mashed and crisped sweet potatoes with a side of citrus-drenched chard, all drizzled with an avocado Hollandaise. Packed with bold flavors from the earthy greens, tangy sauce and succulent fish, this is not typical diet food; instead, it presents richness and variety with love and flair. For those who may want to stray from the strictest interpretations of paleo, Shine also features a nano-brewery that turns out a successful, hop-forward gluten-free ale.
