Gluten Free Restaurants In Nj

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello, I am new to the gluten-free lifestyle after testing positive for celiac. I think I can cook some gluten-free dishes and learn what to and what not to use around the house but I love eating out! I live in Somerville NJ and have found two restaurants by me that offer a gluten-free menu (Alfonsos and Chimney Rock Inn).

Is anyone else from the area that can suggest any in NJ or NY? I've done some google searches but have not been able to find that many. Thank you so much for your help...I'd love to be able to continue to eat out and follow a gluten-free diet.

It depends on how far you want to travel. You can look for Outback Steakhouse (Hamilton and maybe Edison?), Bonefish Grill, and PF Chang's (one of those in Princeton). In Central NJ there is the Blue Rooster in Cranbury, which has a limited menu but understands gluten-free, Blue Bottle Inn in Hopewell which marks its menu with gluten-free items (a bit $$$), and usually the Brothers Moon in Hopewell can find you something gluten-free. In Lawrenceville, at the Lawrenceville Inn there is now Buds and Bowls, which is only open for lunches, but caters to gluten-free and vegan - everything is gluten-free unless you want normal bread for your sandwich. There are various places that claim to have gluten-free stuff, like Chuckles Pizza and Naked Pizza, but they don't segregate ingredients and cross-contamination is a strong possibility. Uno is another chain with some gluten-free offerings, although I haven't found anything there to write home about. The biggest selection of gluten-free items (not a restaurant, this is stuff to take home) I have seen is at DeLiteful Foods on Quakerbridge road in Lawrenceville. I found ice cream sandwiches and soft pretzels there! In NY there is Risotteria, although I thought I heard it may have been closed temporarily and I have not been there, but it gets good reviews.

If you like Malaysian food (similarities to Chinese and Thai), there's a great place in Chatham, NJ that has quite a few gluten-free options -- they have a printed-up gluten-free menu and at least some of the staff know enough to explain how they altered the dishes to be ok. My best friend lives in Chatham and I eat there whenever I visit her: http://atasteofasianj.com/

Here's an update to my earlier post. The manager of Naked Pizza in Ewing showed me around after we had some e-mail exchanges, and they do seem to know how to keep the crust, sauce, and cheese segregated, although I wouldn't count on any of the other toppings. I just ate half a gluten-free pie with no ill effects, and it was pretty good. Just being able to go somewhere and buy a pizza that I don't have to make myself is going to be a treat. So Naked Pizza in Ewing gets a thumbs up.

I went there recently and had a similar experience. I found the manager very helpful. I was excited to have this as an option for when I get a pizza craving.

    • Hi, I am a 24 year old male , with no family history of Celiac.  I have low testosterone.  they did a Biopsy today and during the scope the Doctor said I have Gastritis in upper stomach.  My lab are as follows:   Immunoglobulin A, Qn, Serum 132 90-386 (mg/dL) F Deamidated Gliadin Abs, IgA 3 0-19 (units) - Negative 0 - 19 - Weak Positive 20 - 30 - Moderate to Strong Positive >30 F Deamidated Gliadin Abs, IgG 2 0-19 (units) - Negative 0 - 19 - Weak Positive 20 - 30 - Moderate to Strong Positive >30 F t-Transglutaminase (tTG) IgG 21  H 0-5 (U/mL) - Negative 0 - 5 - Weak Positive 6 - 9 - Positive >9 F Endomysial Antibody IgA Negative Negative  F t-Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA <2 0-3 (U/mL) - Negative 0 - 3 - Weak Positive 4 - 10 - Positive >10   I am wondering the probability that I have celiac?
    • Get pictures if you can and contact GFWD if true and perhaps we can inform others better about this issue.
    • First this is a old post please check date, second, are you celiac/been tested? You should probably see about a gluten challenge and testing if you have not. Or are you confirmed to have a gluten/wheat allergy? What kind of testing was done to determine this? Or is it a NCGS gluten issue? Sorry for the questions but different people have different issues and it is a bit hard to address them without more information. Perhaps start a new thread and feel free to introduce yourself. We always welcome new members and are glad to help out. You mention allergy but also mention swelling stomach/gut which is is sometime a celiac reaction generally.  
    • My husband & I used to be beekeepers. It would be almost impossible for wheat protein to get into honey. The honey is inside the hive; it's not like it's laying out in the open in a plate or a bowl. Here's a hive.: https://www.mannlakeltd.com/10-frame-traditional-growing-apiary-kit-wood-frames-painted?gclid=CjwKCAiA4vbSBRBNEiwAMorER1htsezzCA5djegusWEGx_DzRHG4xePYQIxxd1paGZy4ibxMR_dSFxoCFUoQAvD_BwE The bees have a narrow opening at the bottom of the hive where they enter & exit & when they enter then they climb upward inside the hive. The bottom section is the brood chamber where the queen lays eggs & eventually become bees. At the top of that section is something called a queen excluder which is generally a metal screen type thing with holes in it. The queen is larger than the workers so the holes are smaller than the queen in order to keep her in the brood chamber. This is so she doesn't go laying eggs all over the hive. The workers fit through the excluder allowing them to go to the supers (boxes) above where the nectar is deposited in honeycomb & turned into honey & when a cell is full, they cap it off. You've seen honeycomb before. So when harvest time comes, the beekeeper takes the full (of honey) supers off the brood chamber & replaces them with empty (of honey) supers so the bees can start filling those up. The full supers get taken to what we call the honey house which is where extraction takes place. Here's a YouTube video of honey extraction. As you can see, this is not anywhere that other food is being made or prepared. Other food does not get done in honey production. It's a class all it's own. There's not going to be any wheat barley or rye there.   
    • I noticed my  gluten sensitivity problem started 2 yeats ago after I had my gallbladder removed.  I had to figure it out on my own what my problem was .my sister -who is a nurse practitioner -suggested to me that maybe I am allergic to gluten? I asked her what is gluten ?that was two years ago I have noticed a definite correlation between all my gastrointestinal problems starting after my gallbladder was removed.  as soon as I accidentally ingest gluten my stomach swells up so tight it feels like it will burst have a terrible pain right at the site of where my gall bladder was removed.  I'm so thankful for the site I've learned so much from all of you it is a hard road to travel to try to find things and you can eat that will not make you sick keep posting. I think it gives all of us encouragement! thank you.
