We went to Lumi last night for dinner, which is part of the gluten free restaurant program. For those that live in NY or anyone who plans on visiting this is a must go to. The food was incredible!!! I was debating whether to get the pasta because I've ordered gluten-free pasta in some of the restaurants that offer it and it wasn't very good. I didn't really want to order it and then be disappointed or even order it and have it taste like my same Tinkyada that I make myself at home. Fortunately they offer it so you can order any of the main pasta dishes as an appetizer portion so I figured I'd do that and then get lamb chops for an entree, so even if I didn't like the pasta I still had a main dish I was guaranteed to enjoy. I got a pasta that had shrimp, asparagus and tomatoes. The sauce was a bit like a wine sauce with garlic. OMG.. this was the best pasta I've ever had - even before being gluten-free!!! The entire meal was great and the service was phenominal.

Lumi is a must!!!

I just went there last night. The best!

First off, the gluten-free menu is an actual menu with prices on it and everything. It's not one of those dusty laminated sheets that they hand you reluctantly after you've asked for it four times and called ahead etc.! And at first I was going to ask them if this was truly the gluten free menu because there were so many options and there wasn't a big honking "GLUTEN FREE MENU" title at the top. But then when I looked closely at the pasta section, it's noted that the pastas served are rice pastas etc.

It's just a really really nice place. It's not a chain. It's comfortable and pretty and it doesn't seem like the sort of place that would have a gluten-free menu...if you catch my drift. But then all of the food was delicious -- I had an appetizer portion of a seafood pasta that was to die for! -- and fourteen hours later, I'm still symptom-free!

So thanks, Jillian, for recommending this place. I never would have tried it otherwise because they're kind of low profile.

I'm going to be in NYC next month and would like to try it, can you give a physical address for it because the website link isn't working for me.

Thank you, Susan

The address is 963 Lexington Avenue. They are on the corner of Lexington and 71st street. It's only a few blocks from the 4,5,6 train which makes it really easy to get to.

is this restaurant good for a bacherlotte party.?

I would say it depends what your idea of a bachleorette party is. If you're the type that just wants to hang with a few girlfriends, have some wine, good food and a nice atmosphere to gossip... then yes.

If you are looking for a crazy, loud restaurant where you can act inappropriate (lol) and just do whatever you want and wear a feather boa... NO!

Is it your bachleorette party?
