Risoterria

5 posts in this topic

I went to NY/NJ over the Memorial Day week-end and made a bee-line for Risoterria as it was so close to the hotel I was staying in.

All I can say is.....if you want to go into carbo Nervana, do not miss a trip here when in town!  

 

The risotto is phenomenal and perfectly prepared and they have about 25 different choices of combinations and offer 3 types of risotto rice to choose from.....some I have never heard of.  The salad I had to start with was extremely fresh and crisp and the dressings are top notch...loaded with flavor, without the gluten.  They offer up home made gluten-free bread sticks, which are crispy on the outside and chewy delicious on the inside.  All fresh and warm from the oven and they keep bringing them when you run out.  I made a piggy of myself....it's almost mandatory.

 

Then there is dessert.....which I usually never order but hell, they had chocolate eclairs.   :)   I couldn't believe it and bought 2, one for each day we were there.  They were really, really good and looked and tasted like a real eclair...not some sorry, gluten-free excuse for one.  A REAL ECLAIR, people.  

 

OK...there is a downside.  It is pricey but anywhere you eat in NYC, that is seriously gluten-free, will be pricey.  I thought it worth the price because I do not dine out all that often and this was a special treat.  The eclairs were $8.00 each but they were a good size.  The gluten-free beer is pricey and the wine I thought no more than restaurants at home. Just bring your paycheck and don't worry about it because it was definitely worth the price. I'm glad I don't live near there because I would be broke.  But I will eat there when in NY!  Best of all....not an inkling of sickness was felt.  And it was something special to be able to order and tell them once you are gluten-free and say nothing more.  They truly get it.

 

I think I am still on that endorphin buzz from the meal..... :D

It's worth the extra money just to go to a restaurant where I don't have to worry at all. Even at places known to be celiac friendly, I still worry a bit. At Risotteria they told me that the few things that are not gluten-free are made elsewhere and brought in prepackaged. Quite the reversal!

Now isn't that a beautiful thing!   :D

Risoterria is AWESOME.  I've been to New York twice since diagnosis and have made a point to eat there both times. Almost everything is gluten free, the Risotto is great, they've got a huge selection of gluten free beers, and they've got great baked goods.  They even make a gluten free 'twinkie' that tastes much better than the real thing!  If I lived in the area, I'd be there all the time.

 

I would add that it's a tiny, tiny restaurant, so it's best to go at an off-peak time or to be prepared to wait outside, as they don't have much of a waiting area.  But it's totally worth it!

    • I've still got slow transit time, and have to work pretty hard to be regular. My last colonoscopy my doc complained about things not being very cleaned out. I had a horrible time with the prep. Thought everyone did till I spoke to my husband about his experience, and he's had a bunch of them. I have my big 50 colonoscopy coming up in December... any tips or tricks on making the prep more pleasant or work better so the doc doesn't yell at me again? (He almost stopped the procedure. I was pretty out of it but I do remember the angry tone of his voice.)
    • One of the toughest things about purging gluten from your diet is the change in taste you'll undoubtedly experience. Since gluten-free breads are baked without the benefit of the almost magical baking properties of gluten, finding a practical – and tasty – substitute can certainly be ae a challenge.

    • Your spleen is on your left side, and is part of your lymphatic system (deals with fighting infections etc.). So not surprising or unreasonable for there to be some pain here due to swelling in response to gluten exposure. I also get this as well. When I first starting having severe symptoms, I actually thought I had mono because of this. Now I only get it if glutened. As a side tip, I'd say avoid any pizza from a restaurant, even if they proclaim it to be gluten-free. All of their toppings, sauces and surfaces are likely highly contaminated from making and preparing the regular pizza bases. Hope you feel better!
    • Omg that sounds divine! Thank you!
    • @Jmg For sure. I think whatever one's consensus is on the validity of gluten causing problems for those diagnosed with NCGS, one has to admit that these people do have a real problem, even if it's one we don't fully understand. Articles like this do a disservice to that fact, which as you say is nuanced. There are also other autoimmune diseases that seem to respond to the GFD for reasons that we don't understand either. It's also problematic as from reading that one-line asterisk on celiac disease, people come down very hard on people who lack a formal diagnosis, not realizing that this is the majority of those with celiac disease. I'm in this camp and so I avoid providing the more nuanced "various doctors I have seen are about 99% sure that I have celiac disease, but I don't have a positive biopsy/blood because the gluten challenge would kill me." If I tell people that I am not taken seriously, despite the fact that many serious medical conditions are diagnosed purely on the basis of described symptoms and response to specific medications for that disease.
