Hey!! I'm going to NYC in a few weeks, what are some good restaurants? I've been to Peters' and it was awesome.. but I was curious where else I can go!! thank you :)

I'll just post most of an old reply I made on the travel thread...

1. RISOTTERIA - this is an absolute must. It's by far my favorite gluten-free restaurant in the city. It's on the corner of Bleecker Street and Morton Street in the West Village (near the 1 train (Christopher Street stop) or the A,C,E,B,D,F, and V trains (W4th street stop)). It's a great little Italian place with a good selection of pizza, focaccia sandwiches, and risottos. They also have great gluten-free breadsticks (they come automatically, you don't even need to ask) and desserts. The menu automatically lists all of the gluten-free options, and they pretty much make everything in a "regular" and gluten-free version. It's my own personal version of heaven, and it's about 3 blocks from where I live in New York, so I'm here quite a bit.

2. Babycakes! - Gluten-free bakery on the Lower East Side. www.babycakesnyc.com. It's a cute little place with a lot of great options, and it's sugar-free and vegan as well (I promise that they still taste great). I think you take the F train to Delancey Street and walk down to Broome Street, but I would look up their address and look up the subway directions on Hopstop (see below) to be safe.

3. Mozarelli's - I just tried this the other day (23rd Street b/t Park and Madison) - it's only open on weekdays, but you can get pizza by the slice, and it's REALLY really good!

Someone took care of all the GFRAP restaurants, but I've heard a lot of those are great as well.

When my daughter and I go see our Lyme doc every few months, we always stop at Risotteria. My husband, who is not gluten-free, said that their breadsticks are good breadsticks, not even considering they are gluten-free! Don't go expecting soft, doughy breadsticks, though .... they're great breadsticks, but they are not soft.


gluten-free 12/05

diagnosed with Lyme Disease 12/06

RISSOTERIA!!!!! I can't stress it enough, it's like crack, you just want more and more and more! Not to mention the first time i ate there and HAD pizza in public i cried! I'm a nerd but it's so exciting! You HAVE to get dessert too! I vote for the carrot cake. If there are a few of you in your group I also recommend being VERY bossy and tell people what to get, make sure everything is different and then pass all the plates to you so you can try everything! That's the rule with my friends when we go out. Just come VERY hungry, did i mention the all you can eat breadsticks?! AND PS there is a girl there that is really cool and if you take some of your meal home she will slip in a few extra sticks and not charge you! I think I'm going there for dinner tonight now that I think about it....

I like baby cakes, but to go to a bakery and actually EAT something is just a beautiful thing! The staff doesn't get excited with you, that kind of sucks.

To be honest i live in the city and the only place I go to is Rissoteria...I just love it too much to try something else...

I tried Rice and got SICK SICK SICK! So I say don't go there.

There is always the outbacks too. But REALLY go eat and have a WONDERFUL trip!

PS There isn't a lot around Times Square, so don't try.
