I'm going to NYC for the first time since being gluten free. I'm starting a new thread because all the old ones just go through a list of gluten free places in the city. I'd like to know where you have all gone for a fancy dinner out with my gluten-eating boyfriend. We'd like to go somewhere special :)

I'd like to know where you have all gone for a fancy dinner out with my gluten-eating boyfriend.

Well, I've never gone for a fancy dinner with your boyfriend (sorry, I couldn't resist), but I have a couple of recommendations for Italian restaurants--both have gluten-free entrees in addition to "normal" food:

Sambuca

20 West 72nd Street (just west of Central Park West)

Tel:212-787-5656

www.sambucanyc.com

Food is served in large portions meant for sharing.

About 6-8 blocks north of Lincoln Center.

Lumi

963 Lexington Ave. at NE corner of 70th Street

Tel:212-570-2335

www.lumirestaurant.com

Sidewalk dining is available in the summer.

A few blocks from many of the museums on the east side of Central Park.

Enjoy your dinner!

Ken

Call one of Mario Batali's restaurants. I think he does gluten-free at each of them

For somewhere special I would most definitely say Lumi. The food is delicious and it has a wonderful atmosphere. Exactly what you want for a nice, quiet date.

The atmosphere isn't as special (don't get me wrong, it's a nice place, but Lumi just is very quaint), but I'd also recommend Opus 82. The food is delicious.

Thank you all!!! I've very excited about this trip but I'm also incredibly nervous. I don't usually eat out and the thought of eating out and then taking a subway with no bathrooms somewhere kinda gives me a mini anxiety attack......
