For Christmas I am most likely getting to go to New York!! We will be staying by Rokefeller (you can see the ice skating from out the window!) Are there any good gluten free resturaunts around there, or actually anywhere in NYC? I will be with 4 people that eat gluten, so it would be great if it was somewhere that specialized in gluten-free but tasted super good! Thanks for any sugestions!

NY is celiac heaven :)

There aren't any restaurants right by Rockefeller Center that have a gluten free menu, but there are tons of options. For a quick bite for lunch there is Hale & Hearty in Rockefeller Center (they have soup & salad). All the ingredients for their soup is on the back of the card with the name of the soup, and you can just ask to see the card. Almost all of their soups are gluten-free, with the obvious exceptions (anything with pasta). There are Hale & Hearty locations all over the city, but there is one right there.

You can take the F train which is right in RC to West 4th street, to Risotteria, which has gluten-free pizza! A favorite of everyone.


One of my favorite restaurants is Bistango. You can either take a cab to or take a short walk to Grand Central and then take the 6 train to 28th street and walk down a few block. They can make just about anything on their menu gluten-free and I heard recently started making pizza aswell. This is a great place for a nice lunch or a casual dinner. But if you go for dinner make reservations. It's a small place and a neighborhood favorite, so it gets filled up. The food is awesome. They even serve bruschetta on gluten-free bread that is amazing.


Another favorite of mine, is Lumi. This is the perfect place for a nice romantic dinner or just a quiet dinner with a group of friends. It's a wonderful atmosphere and the food is incredible.


Another place with great gluten-free pizza is Mozzarelli's. They are on 23rd Street, b/t Park & Madison. You can either take the 6 train or the N/R to 23rd Street and it will put you just down the street.

Check out this site for more restaurants in NYC with gluten-free menus, but those are some of my favorites.


Don't be afraid to go to restaurants that don't have a gluten-free menu though. I eat at restaurants all over the city and have only been glutened once. I simply tell the server that I am allergic to wheat & gluten. Many know it's celiac; and even when they don't this is not the first time they've heard it. NY'ers are used to anything and everything - not much phases us or comes across as high maintenance ;)

Thank you so much! That was such a huge help!!

Yeah, we will def. try out non-gluten-free resturaunts, but since I am from Texas and dont know of anywhere that serves gluten-free pizza or anything, I figured that I might as well try a couple of places out!

Thanks again!

Glad to help. Make sure you go to Risotteria. This is a must for every celiac in NYC :)

Ditto on this!!!! Even my gluten eating husband thought the breadsticks were some of the best he's ever had!

Sambuca has excellent Italian food, I shared a family style sized pasta dish with a non-celiac friend and she couldn't even tell it was made with rice pasta. They also have pretty good bread and an amazing gluten free brownie. The service is always great, and they go out of their way to make sure you're comfortable and your food is safe. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who misses a good Italian meal!

Kareng, I am a bit concerned by your statement here.  I no longer have "out of control" DH, but smaller, more scattered, and more readily resolving (for the most part) flareups.  And it may be that I am just having what would be "normal" for a person in my situation, being 'only' 13 months into the gluten-free diet.  I will readily admit, and perhaps should stress, that the situation is very much better than it was before I went gluten-free, including the fact that my former GI symptoms have tot
