There have been numerous discussions on this board about various restaurants in New York--most of them have gotten positive reviews.

I have enjoyed meals at:

Sambuca

Lumi

Nizza

Nice Matin

Candle 79

Lili's 57

Risotteria

Friedmann's Lunch

A good source of recommendations (especially for NYC) is: www.glutenfreerestaurants.org

Also, does anyone know of a bakery in NYC where I can buy fresh gluten free bread? (sandwich-type bread, not cake)

Tulu's, my favorite cupcake place on 11st & 1 ave sometimes has bread (although personally i didn't love it). The Whole Foods by me (White Plains) now carries Udi's Breads UNFROZEN in the bread section so I guess that's closest to "fresh".

Babycakes has AMAZING doughnuts, crumb cakes, chocolate chip banana bread, etc.

As others have said, Bistango, Mozzarelli's and Risotteria are all AMAZING! Lumi is fantastic for special occasions.

They're not exactly places we go as NY'ers but they do have at least one location each in the city that I know of so it's worth mentioning that Outback and Pizzeria Uno have gluten-free menus.

I haven't been but there is a place on the UWS called Cafe 82 that does a lot of gluten-free events.

Peter's on the UES is a diner type of restaurant with a HUGE gluten free menu. Great for comfort food.

The Heartland Brewery by Port Authority has a gluten-free menu. So far only this location has it (which is really annoying since the one in Times Sq. is literally outside my office building).

Also FANTASTIC are Pala, Emporio and Rubirosa.

Check out this site as well: http://www.meetup.com/Celiac/boards/

If you ever travel outside the city to Westchester or Long Island there are tons of great restaurants with gluten free menus in those areas also.

It might just be me...but I wasn't all that impressed with Babycakes. I mean it was good but I wouldn't make that haul out to get them again if I were in town.

I think it depends what you get. Honestly, I don't love their cupcakes. I had them once and never got them again. I do have friends that love them but I wasn't a big fan. However I think the doughnuts are incredible and I could eat their blueberry crumb cake and chocolate chip banana bread all day, every day!

NYC may be the best city in the world to be Celiac. There are tons of choices, and more every month. There are also options at all different price points.

For Italian, Lumi, Bistango, Emporio, and Nizza are all very good. Risotteria is a must try and is always the first that you hear about upon Celiac diagnosis, and I enjoy it, but it's not my favorite. Really, the gluten-free Italian restaurant market is pretty saturated these days.

Mozzarelli's is the only NY style by-the-slice pizza place that offers gluten free. I go there all the time for lunch. Most of the others are sit down, whole pie style.

S'Mac is good and cheap, Mac and cheese. Cafe 82 or Peter's for diner fare. Ruby Foo and Lilly and Loo make Chinese. Ruby Foo is pretty much a PF Chang's clone.

At this point though, there are options in nearly every neighborhood of Manhattan, and even Queens, Brooklyn, and Hudson County, NJ have multiple options. If you know what you want, you can generally find it gluten-free somewhere in NYC.
