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.
