Visiting New York City - Some Questions?
0

4 posts in this topic

Hello,

We are a family with 2 kids (one is our 15 year old celiac daughter) and will be visiting New York in September as part of a 3 week trip to the USA from Australia. We haven't booked any accommodation yet for New York but will probably stay around Midtown. I have done quite a bit of research regarding eating gluten free in New York and know that there are plenty of options. I like the sound of Risotteria in the West Village. If we were to stay around say Midtown how difficult would it be to go to Risotteria? How much would a cab cost? Is it easy to get the subway there. Where are the best places to buy gluten free foods - Wholefoods? Any other suggestions for gluten free restaurants in and around Manhattan? Thank you!!

G'Day Amber,

Thanks for visiting our city for your holiday! You've come to the right place for gluten-free food, not to worry! Manhattan is a very compact place. If you are staying at a midtown hotel, you can get anywhere quickly, easily and safely by subway. Some places will be walking distance as well. Taxi's are always an option too and comparatively inexpensive compared to most big city taxi services.

There is a very nice list of gluten-free restaurants with reviews here: http://aglutenfreeguide.com/restaurants

Some of my personal favorites include:

Bistango (Italian) where both gluten-free and non gluten-free family members can enjoy a great dinner.

Friedman's Lunch (open at dinner too)

Lilli and Loo (Chinese)

Mozzerelli's (Amazing Pizza by the slice, which is very rare)

S'Mac (Mac and Cheese)

Risoterria

As far as Grocery Items, Whole Foods is certainly a good option although most stores have plenty of gluten-free options these days.

I visited Australia for a short time in 2005 but that was pre-gluten-free

With 2 kids, I would suggest just taking a cab. From Midtown to the West Village will probably take 10 minutes or so (depends on day/time) and shouldn't cost more than $10-15 (though if you hit traffic, that meter keeps clicking). If it is your first time to NYC, you might love walking back (especially if you've eaten a big meal!), but you really need to like walking because that could take 45+ minutes. Regardless, I always choose the walking route because no matter how many times I'm in NYC, there's always more to see. If you're strategic about it, you could walk past many landmarks, parks, etc.

Just ate at Mono on Irving between 18/19th on Friday night while in town from California Had one of the best meals in my life .

ask for the food allergy chart. It outlines what you can/can't have for any common food intolerance. Waiter was very knowledgeable and helpful too

    • I have intolerances to a few foods now, so I was wondering about that.. I love cashews though, and a month or two ago I was eating them all the time with no problems at all. I mean, could I really have developed an intolerance to them since then? I don't know if they're made on shared lines (it didn't say on the package so I assumed they weren't), but I'll give them a call. I'm really, really sensitive to cross contamination. Even if something is just made in the same facility (but not on shared lines) it will make me sick. If that's not it, then I'm not really sure
    • Research with KP and find a celiac-savvy GI in your area ( read the biographies). and ask your PCP/GP for a referral to that specific GI (not his buddy).  Ask the GI for the rest  of the celiac panel or proceed with an endoscopy/biopsies -- 4 to six.  Keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete.  Document and request in writing.  Do not worry about symptoms.  There are over 300 of them and some celiacs have none!   Research all that you can about celiac disease.  The University of Chicago has a great celiac website that has testing Information etc.   Poet me know how it works out.  Hope you feel better soon!  
    • I react to both wheat and barley.  I've opted to just go completely gluten free, for the sake of simplicity and my sanity.  I don't have a diagnosis of celiac disease, but I strongly suspect it.  Unfortunately, I'm not willing to endure the misery of staying on gluten long enough to pursue further testing.  I just know I need to avoid the gluten grains, so I do.  
    • I think that we have to remember that celiacs often develop intolerances due to our  damaged guts.  Our guts do not ncessarily heal either (usually adults) for  a variety of reasons even if their symptoms improve (see links below).   Nuts are just plain hard to digest.   I can not tolerate almonds, but can handle walnuts and cashews in small amounts.  I can eat peanuts too, but resort to Peanutbutter after a Glutening as it is easier to digest (maybe I have to learn to chew better!  😀)  My nut symptoms have  nothing to do with gluten as I have purchased certified gluten-free nuts and suffered with the same symptoms.  .   https://www.verywell.com/celiac-disease-when-will-your-small-intestine-recover-562341 http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/treatment/ http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23936873 i call the manufacturer when I suspect the manufacturer is sharing the line or if I just want to know.  I bought some Black English walnuts and called the company.  Those are the only nuts they process and they do not have any flavored nuts.   if you really want to test your theory out, buy some nuts from Nuts.com (certified gluten-free).   See if you get a reaction or ask your GI to retest your antibodies (which should be done annually anyway).   I just hate to have Planters get a bum rap when you do not really know for sure.......😥    
    • New to forum! Appreciate all of the information.  I have Kaiser as many of you do.  My ttg is 1.18 (Kaiser <90), iga 31 (Kaiser <90). I have emailed my pcp in regards to where we go from here.  Is this a positive result or just a little above normal like Kaiser will tell me? I have had conflicting symptoms of some sort of inflammatory problem for 9 years.  I am almost convinced that this might be my answer. Can anyone give insight?
