Hello, I am new to the gluten-free lifestyle after testing positive for celiac. I think I can cook some gluten-free dishes and learn what to and what not to use around the house but I love eating out! I live in Somerville NJ and have found two restaurants by me that offer a gluten-free menu (Alfonsos and Chimney Rock Inn).

Is anyone else from the area that can suggest any in NJ or NY? I've done some google searches but have not been able to find that many. Thank you so much for your help...I'd love to be able to continue to eat out and follow a gluten-free diet.

Diagnosed with celiac disease on 12/28/11 after positive blood test and biopsies after family member died of intestinal cancer caused by undiagnosed celiac. I do not have any GI symptoms but do get frequent headaches. I am trying to be 100% gluten-free for three months to see how my blood tests come back and if my headaches go away. Really, I'm just getting started with all of this and trying to figure it all out =)

It depends on how far you want to travel. You can look for Outback Steakhouse (Hamilton and maybe Edison?), Bonefish Grill, and PF Chang's (one of those in Princeton). In Central NJ there is the Blue Rooster in Cranbury, which has a limited menu but understands gluten-free, Blue Bottle Inn in Hopewell which marks its menu with gluten-free items (a bit $$$), and usually the Brothers Moon in Hopewell can find you something gluten-free. In Lawrenceville, at the Lawrenceville Inn there is now Buds and Bowls, which is only open for lunches, but caters to gluten-free and vegan - everything is gluten-free unless you want normal bread for your sandwich. There are various places that claim to have gluten-free stuff, like Chuckles Pizza and Naked Pizza, but they don't segregate ingredients and cross-contamination is a strong possibility. Uno is another chain with some gluten-free offerings, although I haven't found anything there to write home about. The biggest selection of gluten-free items (not a restaurant, this is stuff to take home) I have seen is at DeLiteful Foods on Quakerbridge road in Lawrenceville. I found ice cream sandwiches and soft pretzels there! In NY there is Risotteria, although I thought I heard it may have been closed temporarily and I have not been there, but it gets good reviews.

If you like Malaysian food (similarities to Chinese and Thai), there's a great place in Chatham, NJ that has quite a few gluten-free options -- they have a printed-up gluten-free menu and at least some of the staff know enough to explain how they altered the dishes to be ok. My best friend lives in Chatham and I eat there whenever I visit her: http://atasteofasianj.com/

Here's an update to my earlier post. The manager of Naked Pizza in Ewing showed me around after we had some e-mail exchanges, and they do seem to know how to keep the crust, sauce, and cheese segregated, although I wouldn't count on any of the other toppings. I just ate half a gluten-free pie with no ill effects, and it was pretty good. Just being able to go somewhere and buy a pizza that I don't have to make myself is going to be a treat. So Naked Pizza in Ewing gets a thumbs up.

I went there recently and had a similar experience. I found the manager very helpful. I was excited to have this as an option for when I get a pizza craving.
