I'm going to New York City next week. Does anyone know if there's a list of gluten-free friendly restaurants I could consult?

Hi Janet,

I hope you get this before you go to New York, but if not, you can use it for your next trip. I live in NYC & am newly diagnosed, so I am just finding out there are several restaurants that have gluten-free menus or will prepare food that is fine for those with celiac disease, but I haven't tried any of them yet.

The three I know for sure are: Bloom's Delicatessen Cafe (350 Lexington Ave @ 40th St., 212-922-food; has a gluten-free menu, including gluten-free french fries); Gus's Place (Greek restaurant at 149 Waverly Place @6th Ave., that's in the Village; 212-645-8511; has a gluten-free menu); Risotteria (270 Bleecker St., also in the Village; 212-924-6664; lots of rice dishes, has a gluten-free menu and all their menus are annotated with gluten-free selections).

Also, if you feel like taking the subway into Brooklyn, there is actually a gluten-free bakery, Josef's, at 1712 Avenue M (718-336-9494). Take the Q train to Avenue M. The baker is himself gluten-intolerant and is a big fan of Bette Hagman's cooking and recipes.

Finally, for anybody in NY or visiting NYC, there is a website that regularly reviews good restaurants to go to if you have celiac disease. It is www.celiacchicks.com.

Since there are so many people in NY, it seems, on special diets and more & more recognition of health and dietary concerns, you will generally do well if you go to hip neighborhoods (the Village, SoHo., Park Slope & Boerum Hill in Brooklyn, etc) and to more upscale restaurants and explain clearly what you need...try to stay away from regular coffee shops, greasy spoons, and any chain-type restaurant, (but fortunately NY doesn't have too many of those). I've managed to have a couple of safe meals out just by being careful. Good luck, & hope you manage to have some good food.

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:

That's very helpful! I am so excited. I never like to eat out but hopefully can enjoy the city. Last time I basically ate only apples and plain fish. So, this should be good!

A few more things...there's a Fairways (big grocerystore-type thing) on 74th and Broadway. It's really packed all the time, but the second floor has a lot of gluten-free foods that are also less expensive because they're not in a healthfood store...

Don't know of any healthfood store locations in midtown, but can list some uptown if anybody will be going there or is willing to go out of their way for them...If anybody wants any help or whatever, you can PM or e-mail me.....being from the city I hope I could have at least something to offer..... :)

As far as the glutenfreerestaurants list, I can say the ones in Westchester have all been fantastic (about .5hour drive from Manhattan). And if you have the time, take the ride out to LI for Cafe Baldo's gluten-free pizza. I have not been to any of the ones in the city itself. Snacks and what-not, WholeFoods has a huge selection of gluten-free stuff and a pamphlet identifying some of them.

    • Could this be celiac or is it really just IBS?
      Are you sure you had the complete celiac panel?  Here are the tests:   -Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA and (tTG) IgG -Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and (DGP) IgG -EMA IgA  -total serum IgA and IgG (control test)     -endoscopic biopsy - make sure at least 6 samples are taken   VERY IMPORTANT:  Keep eating gluten daily until ALL testing is complete or the tests can be inaccurate.     (Source: NVSMOM -- 😊)   Here is more information from a reputable site (and not just info from a crazy cyclist on the Internet!):   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/   IBS, in my opinion, means "I Be Stumped!"  It is just a cop out!  So is the "stressed" thing.     I also had my GB out too.   It was a non-functioning (0% per HIDA scan), no stones, and rotting.     You seem to have many celiac disease symptoms.  Verify (obtain copies of your lab tests) to see if you got the complete panel. You might just have had the TTG IGA and TTG IGG tests.  Good for screening but it does not catch all celiacs.  My TTG tests are always negative even on follow-up testing.  The DGP test catches a positive for me.  My biopsies revealed moderate to severe damage.  If my celiac-savvy GI did not order the complete panel, my celiac disease diagnosis would never have been caught.   if celiac disease is really ruled out, research mast cell disorders.  The flushing and GI upset sound familiar!  You can have more than one thing going on!  But I would put my money on celiac disease!            
    • tightness in throat after eating gluten?
      I've noticed that if I accidentally eat gluten, for the next few days I have this tightness in my throat. It feels like my throat is closing. It's not constant, but comes and goes throughout the next 1-3 days. My hands have also been itchy. Is this a normal symptom for celiac or gluten intolerance, or could it possibly be an allergy? I haven't been tested or diagnosed with celiac or anything yet, so I'm still not entirely sure. All I know is that gluten makes me very sick.. But especially with the itchiness and tight throat.. I'm allergic to acetaminophen and my reaction is similar, so it just makes me wonder. What do you think?
    • Diagnosis and Test Results
      I am sorry that you are sick!  😔.  I think you need to find out which celiac antibody tests were given.  Often just the TTG Is ordered for initial screening.  This test catches most, but not all celiacs (like me!)   You also need to see if they gave you the igA deficency test too.   Here are the tests:   -Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA and (tTG) IgG -Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and (DGP) IgG -EMA IgA  -total serum IgA and IgG (control test)   -endoscopic biopsy - make sure at least 6 samples are taken   VERY IMPORTANT:  Keep eating gluten daily until ALL testing is complete or the tests can be inaccurate.     (Source: NVSMOM -- 😊)     http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ You can go gluten free, but knowing if you have an autoimmune disease is helpful.  celiac disease is genetic (you have the genes, but so does 30% of the population and that's why the gene test is used only to exclude celiac disease and not diagnose it).   All family members should be tested even if they are symptom free.   I hope you figure it out and I am sorry that you had such a horrible experience.  
    • amalgam dental fillings - remove or not?
      My friend, I'm sorry to hear of your pain. I don't know if mercury is related, but I will give you my brief experience. I went through so many health issues, medications, and dr's and nobody could find anything wrong with me, but I knew something was wrong. I've been through many doctors, shots, pills, etc and nothing helped. For me it all came down to gluten. I had blood tests that shown the antibodies and the endoscopy that proved I had celiac, which I don't think is needed. If your body makes the antibodies I can't help to believe you have it. Anyway, long story short. If you are sick, you are sick and if a doctor can't find the reason, move on to a new doctor. Celiac, at least for me was simple. Stop eating gluten and every other health problem goes away. I have 30 + year old amalgam fillings and I feel amazing as long as I don't put anything in my mouth that isn't naturally gluten free, which means I only eat meat and vegetables. Our bodies are all different. I guess my only advice to you is if you're sick, your sick. Nobody lives inside your body but you and you know best if you feel better. Don't be afraid to stand up for yourself. 
    • healthy bread recipe?
      Ok thank you for the input! I am happy to hear what you think about her biopsy. Her GI is actually getting a second opinion from the celiac specialist. Our appointment is in a week. I have always thought she had celiac too. I asked them to do a biopsy years ago and they did but it was normal. She has more neurological symptoms than GI. She has headache and POTS. But she was reacting to all kinds of foods all of the sudden a few months ago. The low histamine diet really helped and she tolerates more foods now. I make almost everything from scratch, there is no gluten anywhere in the house and I don't use gums because she and I react to them. Breakfast is the hardest. Eggs are high histamine, she can't have oats, can't have fermented foods (yogurt), Breakfast is a nightmare. Many fruits and veggies are high histamine. She eats the ones she can tolerate. That's why I was asking about breads. What do you eat for breakfast? Are flax seeds safe or are they like oats? I can't find any flax seeds that say certified gluten free.

      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.
