Visiting New York City - Some Questions?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello,

We are a family with 2 kids (one is our 15 year old celiac daughter) and will be visiting New York in September as part of a 3 week trip to the USA from Australia. We haven't booked any accommodation yet for New York but will probably stay around Midtown. I have done quite a bit of research regarding eating gluten free in New York and know that there are plenty of options. I like the sound of Risotteria in the West Village. If we were to stay around say Midtown how difficult would it be to go to Risotteria? How much would a cab cost? Is it easy to get the subway there. Where are the best places to buy gluten free foods - Wholefoods? Any other suggestions for gluten free restaurants in and around Manhattan? Thank you!!

G'Day Amber,

Thanks for visiting our city for your holiday! You've come to the right place for gluten-free food, not to worry! Manhattan is a very compact place. If you are staying at a midtown hotel, you can get anywhere quickly, easily and safely by subway. Some places will be walking distance as well. Taxi's are always an option too and comparatively inexpensive compared to most big city taxi services.

There is a very nice list of gluten-free restaurants with reviews here: http://aglutenfreeguide.com/restaurants

Some of my personal favorites include:

Bistango (Italian) where both gluten-free and non gluten-free family members can enjoy a great dinner.

Friedman's Lunch (open at dinner too)

Lilli and Loo (Chinese)

Mozzerelli's (Amazing Pizza by the slice, which is very rare)

S'Mac (Mac and Cheese)

Risoterria

As far as Grocery Items, Whole Foods is certainly a good option although most stores have plenty of gluten-free options these days.

I visited Australia for a short time in 2005 but that was pre-gluten-free

With 2 kids, I would suggest just taking a cab. From Midtown to the West Village will probably take 10 minutes or so (depends on day/time) and shouldn't cost more than $10-15 (though if you hit traffic, that meter keeps clicking). If it is your first time to NYC, you might love walking back (especially if you've eaten a big meal!), but you really need to like walking because that could take 45+ minutes. Regardless, I always choose the walking route because no matter how many times I'm in NYC, there's always more to see. If you're strategic about it, you could walk past many landmarks, parks, etc.
