Best/safest Gluten Free Restaurants In Nyc?

I am going to NYC this Saturday with a bunch of friends - I will most likely need to eat lunch and dinner with them. I haven't been to NYC since my diagnosis. My friends are all understanding about it, and i sent them the Yelp results for gluten free restaurants in NYC, which was organized into neighborhoods (very helpful!)

 

The friend we are visiting lives in Hell's kitchen, and I know we plan on visiting Central Park, but I'm not sure what else we'll be doing. Can anyone recommend great gluten free places near those areas? I can go by the Yelp reviews, but I was just curious if any places stood out to anyone.

 

Thanks!

There was a recent thread on this, so you can do a search.   In Hell's Kitchen area, you are near  5 Napkin Burger, which has a gluten-free bun (I don't bother with it) and the one near me has a dedicated fryer for the delicious french fries.

 

Last time I recommended Nizza but someone said the quality might not be what it was.  There's a quick serve place called Little Beet in the 50s which is all gluten-free.  In Times Square, Ruby Foos has a decent gluten-free menu, but it's pricey.  Near Central Park on the Upper West Side, Pappardella has acceptable gluten-free pasta and knows what they're doing, but it's not a 'hot' Italian restaurant.  There are also options at Pain Quotidiens, which are everywhere.  A Thai restaurant called Topaz in the 50s has many gluten-free options (you have to ask) and I don't think I've ever gotten glutened there.  Almost any deli has Kind bars and decent fruit.

 

Enjoy your visit!

Hey there! This is my area of expertise!  :D

 

I personally think that good food is worth making a trip for, so if I were you I would go to Bistango (Italian) for dinner. There are two locations - one in Murray Hill and a second one just opened on the Upper East Side. Enjoy the yummy gluten-free bread and save room for dessert! Pala is another place that I love - my favorite gluten-free pizza in the city. You'll need a reservation for both of these places. 

 

However, my two cents about the areas that you are interested in:

-Lily's 57 (asian/thai/ect). Pretty good and my general choice in the area. 

-Nizza - but someone told me the other day that she got glutened there twice. I've never been, but that's because I didn't find their menu all that exciting.

- Ruby Foo - I've never been there. Too expensive and touristy.

-Five Napkin Burger

-Heartland Brewrey

 

I have never been told that Le Pain Quotidien has gluten-free options. I'm sure they say their soup is gluten-free, but there is so much bread and flour there that I'm never going to eat there myself.  :unsure:

 

Honestly I don't think that Hell's Kitchen/Central Park South is the most exciting area for gluten-free food (or food in general). If I were you I would take a ten minute subway ride to go somewhere better  ;)

No way! I didn't know that Friedman's Lunch has another location. It looks like they opened up pretty recently. I would second that recommendation :)

Thanks for the suggestions, everyone! :)

 

It's unfortunate that I can't do my own thing here - or that I wasn't going with just one friend or my boyfriend. I am going with 4 other girls and we're meeting up with a guy friend that lives there. He has certain places that he wants to show us/have us eat at - and despite the fact that i researched nearby gluten free options he still mentioned a great place in the Brooklyn area that he wants us to try (he didn't give a name) yet he doesn't know if they have gluten free options.  <_<

 

About ready to just pack my own food and eat at the park while we walk while they eat at the restaurants. It's very frustrating to put time into researching to make it easier for others, just to have the efforts rebuffed in favor of some random pizza joint that may or may not have gluten-free options.

 

Anyone else been in a similar situation? Last year we went to see him around the same time and I wasn't diagnosed yet, so it wasn't as difficult. Going away to the city for a day should not be such a hassle, especially when I put the work in beforehand.

I know how hard that can be.  The good news is that if it's a trendy brooklyn restaurant, chances are they will have gluten-free options.  See if you can get him to tell you the name.

Well, that sounds promising. :) I did ask him, but I haven't heard back yet. I try very hard to not "play the victim" or demand extra attention for this, so it's just disheartening that some of my friends can't meet me halfway. I told them I don't care where they go for dessert, I don't need to go to a gluten free bakery or something, I just want to make sure I can eat a safe lunch/dinner. I don't think that's being difficult. 

 

Stressful!  :rolleyes:

 

Another friend did say that if the others pick a non gluten friendly restaurant, that she'd go with me to a gluten free place. That was nice of her.

Since it sounds like you will be in New York for 2 meals, it would be reasonable to eat at least one of those meals at a gluten-free friendly restaurant.  Your friend may not be used to the idea of you needing to be gluten free.  For some of my family (like my in-laws) it took a long time for them to adjust to the idea of choosing a restaurant based on this new criteria.  Saying that, I love visiting New York because I feel they are used to dealing with such diverse people with diverse allergies and health needs.  This is a list of restaurants I have compiled so far, some of these restaurants are in the location you will be in.  I have been to Nizza's and did not have any issue.  I also Love Love Love 5 Napkin Burger-- the burgers are amazing and I am a french fry addict.  Anyplace that has a dedicated fryer is awesome to me!  My family knows if we go to NY that always means at least one trip to 5 Napkin Burger!

 
Bloom's Deli --Lexington & 40th (midtown)
 
Nizza restaurant 45th & 9th (Hell's Kitchen, near times square)

Thank you so much! This helps. Yeah, you're right. I'm still getting used to it myself. It's a huge adjustment. That's great that NYC is so gluten free friendly! I wasn't sure. I went to Maine back in September and they were great! I'm glad I have some specific options to look into. I figure if it's such a big deal, I can go to one of the restaurants myself and get something to go, and then eat it at Central Park.

    • Before ordering the endoscopy, you would think they would order the complete celiac panel.  Not all celiacs (like me) ever get a positive TTG (I do test positive to the DGP, but negative to the EMA and TTG).  You would think that the additional blood tests would be way more cost effective than going directly to endoscopy.  The endoscopy usually is still considered necessary for a celiac diagnosis, but there does not seem to be strong evidence that she has celiac disease other than a family history.   Some celiacs are seronegative negative, but your daughter was only negative on just one of the celiac tests.  So, she MIGHT be seronegative.  More investigation is needed.  She is NOT IgA deficient, at least for celiac testing (for celiac disease this test is just a control test).   The DGP test seems to be better for small children.   I do not have the complete health history of your child, but I would seek a second opinion before going to an endoscopy at this time with only one test result.  Try to find a celiac-savvy GI -- one who follows what the American GI Association  recommendations for celiac disease and what the Mayo Clinic or a large celiac research center recommends for testing protocol. https://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/it-mmfiles/Celiac_Disease_Diagnostic_Testing_Algorithm.pdf https://gi.org/guideline/diagnosis-and-management-of-celiac-disease/  
    •   Hello linzk8! I would suggest you to go with natural foods as you are allergic to latex. One of my friends had the same problem. She also had latex allergic. She used Indian nuts to lose weight purchased from the official site of Nuez Dela India and achieved a success. You can also check the same. Eating at the right time is also important. Avoid eating very late at night. It's fine to eat in between meals, but limit your proportions. Never starve yourself! Hope this could help you!
    • My family visited Peru (my 13 year old has celiac) last Christmas, and we found Peru rather gluten free friendly. Peru is the land of corn and potatoes, and they have lots of grill meats.   Their cooking ingredients tend to be naturally gluten-free.   We did the 4 day Inca trail hike to Machu Picchu, and our chef did a great job making gluten-free meals for my daughter.  
    • Most physicians follow the joint commission’s guidelines on prescribing HTN medications which usually begin with a diuretic and calcium channel blocker (the amlodipine) - see below. Is it possible that your bp was still not controlled on the CCB (amlodipine)? So the ARB was added? Again, I’d just like to say that just bc a drug does have certain adverse effects does not mean you will have them, but I understand if you would not even want to take the chance, given a previous history of celiac disease. http://www.aafp.org/afp/2014/1001/p503.html “In the general nonblack population, including those with diabetes, initial anti-hypertensive treatment should include a thiazide diuretic, calcium channel blocker, angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor, or angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB). In the general black population, including those with diabetes, initial treatment should include a thiazide diuretic or calcium channel blocker. If the target blood pressure is not reached within one month after initiating therapy, the dosage of the initial medication should be increased or a second medication should be added (thiazide diuretic, calcium channel blocker, ACE inhibitor, or ARB; do not combine an ACE inhibitor with an ARB). Blood pressure should be monitored and the treatment regimen adjusted until the target blood pressure is reached. A third drug should be added if necessary; however, if the target blood pressure cannot be achieved using only the drug classes listed above, antihypertensive drugs from other classes can be used (e.g., beta blockers, aldosterone antagonists). Referral to a physician with expertise in treating hypertension may be necessary for patients who do not reach the target blood pressure using these strategies.” Drugs for BP in different classes work by different mechanisms. It may be worth it to print out those huge, long drug information sheets and go over them with a fine toothed comb. As for CoQ10, have you checked for coupons online? Can your doctor write you an Rx and get your insurance to pay? They might say it’s on OTC and you have to pay out of pocket, but it may be worth it to find a way around that - would a prior authorization do the trick? I don’t know, just bringing up the questions. In the report you cited, these concluding words were to me, chilling:
      “Therefore, we suggest the possibility of a class effect.” Losartan, olmeseartan - doesn’t matter. And I'll say it again, there must be a way to disseminate this information more widely as I had no idea about this adverse effect, and never heard any docs speaking about it either. It really warrants wider sharing. Finally, one person who is often an overlooked resource is your pharmacist. They have just tons of knowledge and should be able to talk to you in some depth if asked, in an articulate, easy to understand way. They may even be able to do some digging and research for you. Plumbago
    • Plumbago et al, Thanks for letting me know  about the "artan" drugs being ARBs. I think Cyclinglady was right the Losartan research is not free and thus not public. I saw the link with no abstract but wanted to read it to confirm as you noted in your ETA that it was another "Artan" drug Losartan causing the problem. I believe it is. I found a great (after more digging) review of all the "artans"/ARBs or most of them about whether they can contribute to sprue symptom's in addition to Benicar. here on wiley as studied by the alimentary pharmacology and therapeutic journal (AP&T) for short. http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/apt.14176/full I wish I knew how to post the able alone it is very informative.  Please scroll over the table to the end of it since it even tells how long to expect before your sprue symptom's/conditions improve IF the "artan" drug is causing your symptom's which I find the most helpful thing about the table.  They also note histological feature (degree of villi blunting) to expect on biopsy. They note Losartan can cause "total atrophy of duodenal villi" by their reporting. I also recently had an issue with my potassium levels so I feel sure it is the Losartan. I remember reading a study about how losartan was better at the "chronic cough" I had developed using Lisinopril so I changed to Losartan a few years ago . . . now I find I could of been making my GI symptom's worse. But to answer  your other question since I began taking Folic Acid a few months ago my BP numbers went down to a healthy level of 120/80 or less sometimes . . . but with medicine. I had already been thinking I wanted to try get off the BP medicine (for good) so this is more motivation. C0q10 worked well but it is too expensive for me to take all the time! I called my doctor to have them put me back on Amlodipine/Norvasc and I can't remember why I changed off that medicine to begin with now.  I do remember needing two medicine's back then to control my BP so maybe we stopped the Norvasc instead of the Linsinopril. But now that they have put me back on Norvasc I hope my potassium levels will correct themselves. I just don't feel safe anymore taking Losartan after learning it could be making my GI symptom's worse or causing the to be unreliable. I first thought my touch of D. was from an antibiotic round but when kefir didn't get me back on track I suspected something else when my Vitamin D levels showed up low too again! Thanks everybody for ya'lls great suggestions and good research on my behalf. I also recommend this verywell article if you are still having GI problems and you suspect an "artan" like ARBs BP medicine and looking for a medicine that might have less severe  or more manageable symptom's for your lifestyle because it comprehensively list's the medicine's by drug types. https://www.verywell.com/hypertension-drugs-1745989 no medicine is without a side effect as (I) am learning but I never thought sprue would be one for my BP medicine and why I prefer Vitamins when I can find out which one too take. Now that I have the Norvasc approved as a replacement for the Losartan I might see if my BP goes up again if I stop my medicine all together as I was hoping the Folic Acid might help me with it (without medicine) and it explains why I was low in Folic Acid to begin with again. posterboy,
