Visiting New York City - Some Questions?
0

4 posts in this topic

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.

Just ate at Mono on Irving between 18/19th on Friday night while in town from California Had one of the best meals in my life .

ask for the food allergy chart. It outlines what you can/can't have for any common food intolerance. Waiter was very knowledgeable and helpful too

    • I used to worry I was having a heart attack. The symptoms, a pressing, intense chest pain on left side of chest lasting several minutes sometimes. I went through extensive cardio tests and when they turned up negative was told to live with it. I had bouts of it through my life until I went gluten free for entirely different symptoms. Getting rid of those pains was an unexpected but welcome side effect. It's unpleasant and scary but at least if you know that's the case you have an explanation. Don't let that stop you from seeking medical advice if it persists or is different in any way however.  This is, as ever, good advice: Just think about a busy pizza place on a weekend. Flour in the air and on the hands of kitchen staff. Someone phones in an order. Are they 'really' gluten free or just (insert stereotype) hipster posers impressing their friends with their fad diet. Either way no time to change gloves or use different tools. etc etc. It's a high risk environment.  It sucks, but in these first few months particularly you're better errring on the side of caution.   
    • ???? Lundberg do not use oats in ANY of their products. check the grains section http://www.lundberg.com/products/grains/ I guess try lotus if it still bothers you.....you might be like me and all grains/carbs cause some kind of gut issues. I had to go paleo/keto.....thought for years it was just bad gut bacteria but ended up being another AI issues that reacted to carbs.
    • Unfortunately I have a intolerance to oats so Lundberg bothers me. Thanks so much though. 
    • Thank you guys! Great info and I'm researching your suggestions RIGHT now. I am sure I will have questions - I will ask my doc about vitamin deficiency testing and I will NOT do that gluten challenge!
    • Oh wow!  I haven't been here in days because I have been POURING over the most recent SIBO literature!  Have you heard of Dr Nemechek?  https://www.nemechekconsultativemedicine.com/ His approach is very simple and essentially you STOP using probiotics and start taking Inulin.  It is all very fascinating and falling in with what we are seeing with our daughter. In a nutshell he says that the bacteria that has overpopulated is "damaging" the system (second brain).  That they are meant to stay in the colon but start to grow out (for multiple reasons) and expand into areas of the intestines that should be populated by other area specific bacteria.  They slowly take over and expand out further.  Probiotics feed EVERYTHING and make the SIBO worse and Antibiotics kills EVERYTHING and does nothing to solve the problem either.  There is one antibiotic - Rifaximin that stays in the colon and does not permeate its walls.  Other than that he suggests that you FEED the good bacteria and allow them to thrive and naturally win back the territory.  Inulin is the food that they eat and taking Inulin (Chickory root fibre) will nourish the healthy bacteria.  3 months ago we stripped away Gluten and dairy and saw HUGE results and then lost them.  We also introduced a very high quality multi-strain probiotic.  Dr Nemechek says that the fact that some people see gains when they go gluten-free/DF because they essentially "starve" the bad bacteria and there is a bit of a dying off.  But it is not fixing the core issue and often you can see food intolerances and symtoms worsen even though you are still gluten-free/DF.  This is EXACTLY the dynamic we are seeing with our daughter.  She is eating AIR but is still in pain and now her Sensory issues seem worse than ever (thanks to the probiotic maybe)? He also says that the healthy bacteria secrete an acidic compound that kills off the bad bacteria which also explains why some people feel better when they consume ACV. I find the entire thing fascinating!
