For those of you in Northern to Central New Jersey, there is a great Italian place in Lyndhurst, NJ - Michael's Riverside.  The owner (the actual "Michael") has gone gluten-free himself and has added a gluten-free menu.  There are also items on the "regular" menu that they can make gluten-free upon request.  While I was talking to him he explained how they cook the gluten-free food separately and avoid any cross-contamination issues.  Our office holds many parties there and yesterday was my first time there since going gluten-free.  I got the eggplant parm with penne - my first experience with gluten-free pasta - and I couldn't tell the difference from the "normal" stuff.  It was awesome!!

I just discovered an amazing Italian place in Clifton, NJ - La Riviera Trattoria.  The chef's daughter is Celiac, and she works in the restaurant with him (he's also the owner).  They have a full gluten-free menu... as in a full 2-sided menu.  They use separate pots/pans, dishes, etc.  They are a bit pricey, in my opinion, but well worth it!  I went with a non-gluten friend and she said the gluten food was really good too.  They get their pasta imported from Italy and sell it there in the restaurant too.

 

If you call ahead and let them know you're coming, they'll have gluten-free bread ready for you.

 

Apparently they have gluten-free parties on Monday nights - I think she said once-a-month.  The restaurant is closed on Mondays, so it's just the gluten-free people mingling and feasting on everything from pizza to pasta to seafood to dessert.

 

Check out the "Our Story" link on their website for more background information:

I just started a "Northern New Jersey Restaurants" thread - maybe one of the admin folks could move this conversation over there?  Please?

I think I found a fix... I started another new Northern New Jersey Restaurants thread and included a link to this one as the first post to get it started.  Probably should have just done that in the first place... sorry...

Thank you! I travel fairly frequently to Teterboro, NJ and I've only recently gone gluten free, but I'm so glad I found this!
