We did make reservations for dinner the following week. Friends from Cooperstown were in the city and planned to meet us at Gemma for dinner. We requested Sam as our server. Billy was the manager working this particular evening and he sat with us and again discussed our concerns with the allergy and cross-contamination issues. While we waited for our friends George, Tina and Aidan to join us, we ordered for the boys. They shared a huge plate of sautéed green beans, mushrooms and roasted potatos, followed by spaghetti with plain marinara sauce. I ordered a French martini (or possibly 3). Armed with epi-pens just in case, my husband and I watched the kids devour their veggies, then dig into their plates of spaghetti. For desert they had the dairy, egg and nut free cupcakes that I made a day earlier.
