I've noticed New York seems to be very gluten friendly, wish I lived there! Anyhow, there was a post on here somewhere else that said to visit www.glutenfreerestaurants.org. I went there and the majority of the restaurants were in New York. :)

Sounds good in NYC. How about when traveling to Europe. We are going to see our daughter in France and then traveling to Ireland. Any hints on how to travel with Celiac's. What a nuisance.

Thanks to everyone for posting on this thread! I took a day trip to New York yesterday for my friend's new baby's naming ceremony, and *I* got to pick the restaurant that we would eat at afterward, so I chose Gus's Place. The food was good, and it was so nice not to have to worry about cross-contamination! (We even managed to park right outside the restaurant! Can you believe that? It was just our lucky day!)

Check out the Celiac Chicks Website, they list places in NYC as well as other places in the US that are gluten-free.

There is a bakery in Brooklyn that has a lot of gluten-free stuff to eat as well...

Yep...I live in NY also. I've heard of numerous restaurants that zippy10 mentioned, but I rarely ate out before being diagnosed, and therefore, don't eat out now, either. For travelling to NYC or anywhere else, there is a website: http://glutenfreerestaurants.org/. I hope this proves helpful for you wherever you go. It won't work for small towns, obviously, but for big cities, this site will provide a few options. Hope this helps.

Hi, back again with a quick "edit" to my post. At Silly-Yak.com, there is a long list of NYC restaurants that accommodate to Celiacs:

I was diagnosed 6 years ago and am always looking for restaurants, fast food and others in my area that have gluten-free menu. I've read about Outback, however there isn't one closer than 45 minutes away and it's usally a hour plus wait to get in. :(

Does anyone know of any places in Westchester County, New York :blink: I live in Yorktown, so the Northern part of the county is best. :rolleyes:

Thanks,

Diana

There is a restaurant in Manhattan called "Jean-Georges." It is at the Trump Hotel at One Central Park West. It is a very expensive restaurant but they are very accomodating to people with Celiac Disease. When I went to eat their, I told the waiter that I was allergic to dairy and gluten and he asked if I had Celiac Disease and I said yes and then he called over the maitre'de who took my order and the chef prepared all of these delicious entrees with sauces and everything was gluten free. However, for dessert the only gluten free items are fruit and sorbet.

I've heard so much about that bakery -- and though I'm only a subway ride away, I've never been there!....never really bothered to go :o I know I should, but I haven't.

To DHA

(Westchester info):

There are 5 places listed on http://www.glutenfreerestaurants.org/index.php for the county. So far I've been to Gedney and Ciao and they have wonderful food. Also, I've been fortunate with helpfull waiters at Mighty Joe Youngs in Hartsdale. These three are all mid-southern Westchester near White Plains. There are others that I have not tried including some in Dutchess and Orange counties which may be closer to you.

I see that this was posted several years ago.

Sad to update that Brooklyn Diner, which I visted yesterday, is no longer worthy of being listed here. Staff was unwilling to clean the grill to make me a burger, repeatedly brought me foods I could not eat after I asked numerous questions and was very up front that I couldn't have anything that contained wheat or flour on my plate.

Then when I asked for recommendations of what would be safe given their preparation, I was told "Nothing really. Maybe a dry salad?"

It is just plain gross that they would be cooking wheat products touching raw meat. That can't be good for anyone.

Good restaurants to add to this list:

Blue Smoke (BBQ)

Nizza (Italian/French) - has a separate gluten-free menu with gluten-free pastas/bread/desserts

Sambuca (Italian) - has a separate gluten-free menu with gluten-free pastas/bread/desserts

Pappardella (Italian) - separate gluten-free menu with gluten-free pastas/pizzas

Rosa Mexicano (Mexican) - separate gluten-free menu (75% of their regular menu is naturally gluten-free)

    • I'm actually scared to go to the doctor and could use some advice
      I suspect I am dealing with vitamin deficiency, but I'm afraid that if I go to a specialist they're going to think I have MS. As a person with pretty bad health anxiety, I can't bring myself to make the appointments I know I should make. I presented to my GP about 9 months ago with fatigue and a bizarre tingly feeling in my lower left leg. I was also suffering digestive distress, but I've lived with that off and on my whole life, so that was the least of my worries. My blood tests showed that my B12 level was 280. They didn't turn up any other issues, but then again she did not order any other vitamin level tests, only thyroid and routine bloodwork. She called my B12 level "on the low end of normal" and put me on oral supplements. When we retested 6 weeks later, it was 1100 and she told me to drop it back because that was too high and too much B12 can cause health issues, too. I'm confused by that because I've read that it isn't possible to take too much. I started a new career in a new town, and simultaneously began to feel better. The fatigue went away first, followed by the tingling and other stuff. Still plagued by both extremes of digestive distress. Maybe I should also mention that I was diagnosed with GERD at age 29 and have been on PPIs for 10 years. At that time, nobody ever mentioned investigating my GERD at such a young age, just put me on the pills and said stay on them. A gastroenterologist concurred after a very brief office visit. Well, I can be bad about taking my medicines, so I got off the B12. I figured maybe my earlier issues were stress-related. Now my symptoms are back, but worse. I have tingling and some aching in the leg. I have a sensation in one spot on my upper arms like the skin is burning, but no rash or redness. I have the C extreme of digestive problem, only alleviated by taking lots of magnesium citrate capsules. Sometimes I feel easily chilled, like waves of goosebumps. I am working to get off the PPIs in case they are inhibiting my absorption of vitamins. My mom has had really bad IBS all her life, plus eczema, headaches, etc. I'm back on the B12 for about 5 days but have experienced no relief yet, however I do remember that it took about 2 months to feel better the last time. Getting ready to move, on top of being really scared about these health issues, is making me crazy. I'm only 40 years old!!! Here are my questions: 1. Do I go back to the GP and ask her to order a celiac blood test? I know NOT to go off gluten until I am tested. 2. Do I ask for a referral to a neurologist or gastroenterologist instead? 3. Do  I wait until my mom's gastro appointment next month, when she plans to ask for a celiac blood test? See if hers is positive? 4. Do I keep driving myself insane with the worry that I have a degenerative illness? Can anybody identify with any of this at all? 
    • Eeek confused! Positive biopsy, negative blood test???
      I would hope they would check for the other reasons for the endoscopy results.  A GI might not check for all of those so you may need to check with your regular doctor to start that process.
    • Depression / anxiety issues
      The second link I gave you was to a series of online video courses, you can try those for free to see if its something you think might help. There are also a lot of worksheets you can download, the first link had some I think but there are plenty of others out there if you search online.  Finally I had another look and found this: http://www.getselfhelp.co.uk/step1.htm  Which looks like a decent 7 step program Obviously its not as good as a dedicated session with a CBT counsellor, but the above may give you some tools you can use, especially when your thoughts are spiralling into a destructive circle. You could also search to see if there's any group sessions in Melbourne, that's how the NHS delivers it, they would be cheaper and there's really no need for one on one CBT, because it's more about delivering knowledge of the toolset. I approached it very sceptically but found it of some use, although at the time I was still under the gluten influence so it never tackled the root problem. The game changing aspect of discovering this is that you now know why the psychologist sessions didn't hit the mark, how could they when the root of your depression was your illness? My sessions now are far better and more enjoyable than when I was under a gluten fog.  Aside from all this the other advice holds, eat well, exercise, get sunlight every day and the longer you're on the diet the better you should get.  Oh and at least NI put up a hell of a fight in the Euros, hope you got to see that down under!
    • Depression / anxiety issues
      How long did this last ? 😳
    • Depression / anxiety issues
      Funny enough that a naturopath at a mind & body convention that I attended last week said I was also deficient in selenium. You put your finger into a small holder (Similar to having your heart rate checked) she said I'm deficient in b vitiams, selenium vitiam d, she also said Somthing about having a lot of mercury in my body, to be honest it all went over my head as yet another thing to deal with so I haven't looked much further into it as it was all just to much, I have a print out of the results that she gave me tho, I'm going to look into it. Thank you for taking your time to reply to this thread

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
