BRIDGEwater Bistro prepares dinner with no “reservations”

When I discovered I was gluten-intolerant about five years ago, gluten-free cooking was just in its infancy.  We decided at the time that we should see if we could rework some of our most popular recipes to be gluten-free, without sacrificing quality and taste. Sure enough, we found that our chowder, our fish ‘n’ chips were just as good made with other starches and flours.  We were able to bake tasty, moist gluten-free dinner bread and light dinner rolls.  We don’t try to be completely gluten-free, but our guests will find almost 90 percent of our menu is just naturally wheat-gluten free.”

When Ann and Tony Kischner opened the Bridgewater Bistro in Astoria after 25 years operating the Shoalwater restaurant in Seaview, They transformed an 1896 waterfront building, right at the base of the mammoth Astoria-Megler Bridge into one of Astoria's most dramatic dining rooms, where seafood takes a starring role. The kitchen takes advantage of what's fresh and seasonal–including what is grown on site. Savor each bite as night descends on the Columbia.
