Host:  Lise
Restaurant:  Atomica Pizza & Wine Bar

Meet in the residence Lobby at:  5:45 pm
Description:  I discovered Atomica while searching for gluten-free dinner options and decided to give it a try.  This place offers fresh Italian food in a clean and modern venue.  My favourite selling point on this one: Gluten-free pizza, pasta, and Panini!  Tested the club house Panini - it passed the test with flying colors, can't wait to try another one!  I hope you will join me! 
Of course, the regular food is good too, those were tested as well.  Antipasto, Panini, salads, pastas, ice cream, desserts, wine, coffee...don't forget, most ice cream is gluten free.
