Element 47 in The Little Nell does not offer specific menus for food allergies — such as allergies to nuts, gluten or dairy products. However, the servers at Element 47 are well equipped to answer any questions about ingredients in the various dishes for any guests who need to avoid certain foods. Many dishes on the Element 47 menu are devised without wheat, dairy and nuts. People avoiding gluten or dairy may want to consider the Nantucket Bay scallop ceviche with avocado, the Maine lobster with sunchoke and Meyer lemon or the duck breast and confit duo with amaranth, fennel and kumquats. Further, the kitchen can sometimes omit ingredients from dishes to make them appropriate for guests with food allergies. It’s just a matter of communicating your needs and special requests to your server. Or, you can call ahead, and let the restaurant know of your food allergies and the kitchen may be able to prepare appropriate dishes for you.
