gluten-free Restaurants On Long Island

19 posts in this topic

My son's First Communion is in April. I need to find a restaurant I can safely eat at. Mama's is too far to drag the whole family to. I love their food. Cafe Baldo I'm not crazy about and its in my town. Are there anyother places in Nassau County? I want to be able to enjoy my son's day. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Donna

Hey Donna,

They don't have a gluten free menu but Cafe Bacci (or Bacci Cafe, I forget which it is) on Old Country Rd in Westbury, is great for these type of events and they will be very accomodating for you. I went to a party for a Christening there several months ago, and they couldn't have been more helpful. I had a delicious rosemary chicken breast with roasted potatoes and deliciously seasoned vegetables.

I'll let you know if I can think of anywhere else.

There is a gluten-free restaurant in Wantagh too, but for the life of me, I can't remember what it is called. I know they have spaghetti and meatballs, lasagna, pizza--lots of favorites. Is Wantagh too far away?

I actually live in Wantagh. The restaurant is Cafe Baldo. I have eaten there the food is alright. I was just wondering if there was something else.

Jillian,

I know what restaurant you are talking about. I'm definitely going to look into it. Would you believe I'm considering going up to Westchester for my son's party. Have you tried Four Doors Down in Buchanan?

Thanks for the suggestions.

I live in nassau county and the only other place I come up with (besides what has already been mentioned)are the steak places on northern blvd on north shore..I know one of them has gluten free menu online, maybe Ruth's Chris?? ANd peter lugar steaks are supposed to be gluten free. Not sure if you are a meat eater but most of those restaurants are very nice and I'm assuming would be very accommodating...htey also have private party rooms if you are having a large crowd...

Good luck!!

P.S. - and please let us know if you find any place different...

PF Changs in the Source Mall has a gluten free menu and it's a good place to go with a big group.

Legal Seafoods is great! We went there for my birthday and the managers take care of all the gluten-free orders. They were sooo great. We ordered the gluten-free calamari (which was not good, ps avoid the gluten-free fried seafood, not exciting) and we tasted it and dint like it at all but i figured wed bring it home and cook it with some sauce or something and they offered to take it off the bill for us. Soooo great there.

Also charlie browns steakhouses are really good and have gluten-free menus and great for big parties. Not sure where they are in nasssau but there is one in commack right off the sagitokos pkwy

Hey If you are planning on coming down to Westchester to go to Four Doors Down, You should go to Seasons instead. I have never been to Four Doors Down, so I would know if it's good or not. But On the other hand, I have been to Seasons and I know the owners, it's a great restuarant and it's a great place for parties. My dad was talking to the chef the other day about how much I like the restuarant and he explained to my dad that they are extra careful and he show him the kitchen.

Great suggestion, but I think that may be really far for her (and her family) to travel. That is easily 2 hours from where she is in Nassau county.

What town is this restaurant in? I have family in Briarcliff Manor and Ossining. I'm willing to make a trip for good and safe food. I have eaten at Ciao in Eastchester and that was worth the trip. Only 45 minutes away. Thanks for the info.

    • Are you vegan or vegetarian?   I am concerned about your lack of protein and fats in your diet.  These diets can work when you are also gluten free, but as a celiac you can be malnourished.  It is hard to heal when you are slowly starving yourself.   No offense, but some newly diagnosed celiacs end up with food disorders.  Perhaps working with a dietician can help.   What actually are your blood glucose levels?  Did you know that just as Hashimoto's is common with celiacs, so is type 1 diabetes?   Ask your doctor for antibodies testing for Type 1 diabetes (TD1), if your blood glucose levels are not in the normal  range.  You can develop TD1 (LADA) at anytime.   For adults there is a "honeymoon" period which can last for up to five years.  Be on the watch for other AI issues (besides TD1) too.   It is so important to monitor your health after a celiac disease diagnosis!  
    • He was not IGA deficient.  I'm still hoping we can convince the base GI to approve his referral.   Thanks for that thread about TTG Igg.  That's exactly what I was wondering. 
    • Star Anise Foods  rice paper and spring rolls are gluten free they have brown and white rice versions. I have not had issues with these in the past when I used to use them. Should be able to find them on amazon.
    • Hi strawberrymoon, If you are having a blood sugar problem, that can cause nerve damage and tingling.  Nerve damage is often associated with diabetes.  You can ask your doctor to check your A1C level to get an idea how it has been doing. It would probably help your glucose levels to stick with a paleo style diet, avoiding most carbs.  Carbs and meats have a different affect on blood glucose.  Carbs tend to spike blood glucose while meats even it out. There are a lot of negative changes that can happen with high blood glucose.  It is wise to try and get it under control ASAP.  My brother has lost most of his vision in one eye now from high blood glucose.  And he has the tingling symptoms you described.  The tingling can progress to pain in time.  My brother chose to ignore his diabetes and is paying the price for it.  He is doing better at it now but the damage is done. Yes, B-12 deficiency can cause those kind of nerve symptoms.  But if you have high blood sugar that is the more common cause.   Diabetes is not a rare condition.
    • I have been living in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, for two years, and finding gluten-free food is proving more difficult than I thought, even if I am cooking my own food. Wheat flour, called "bot mi" in Vietnamese, seems to creep into a lot of stuff nowadays. What's more, manufacturers do not feel it is important to list bot mi in the ingredients on a food's packaging unless it is a principle ingredient in the food. In other words, soy sauces or wraps with just a tiny bit of wheat flour added to add a touch of thickness or pliability are not guaranteed to list the ingredient. For some genetic reason, Vietnamese people are not nearly as susceptible to food allergies as Westerners - it probably has something to do with exposure to less hygenic foodstuffs having built up an immunity over hundreds of years - so it is not really considered important to split hairs in that department over here. Anyway, I love rice paper but have often gotten glutened by it when I have it. Can any celiac who could tell if a product had gluten by more than just the ingredient list on the back let me know a definitively gluten-free rice paper brand? I know that very few rice paper brands actually list wheat flour in the ingredients, but I don't 100% trust the ingredients list for products made by Vietnamese companies. Call me paranoid. By the way, I have a neurological condition that irreversably breaks down my immune system when I ingest gluten, so I don't want to experiment with trial by fire here.
