Strictly Gluten Free
, Long Island, NY View On Map
In November of last year I wrote about a local entrepreneur seeking to open an entirely gluten free supermarket. Steve and his wife Angela have been tirelessly working on making their dream a reality. Well, their work has paid off and they've finally opened! With their final location confirmed in East Northport, and all sales racks and products purchased they had their grand opening earlier this month from December 16th-18th. The hope is that in several weeks their ECommerce site will be open for business, allowing for the purchasing of items online!

While many places like Whole Foods, Trader Joes, Wild By Nature, and Stop and Shop now offer gluten free products which are clearly labeled and often separate we know sometimes these products are not actually gluten free even though they say so on the front. Therefore, we gluten avoiders still spend much time reading labels. At Strictly Gluten Free, Steve makes the effort of having companies confirm their gluten free certifications, even when items say they are gluten free. He holds items in the back and will not put them out for sale until he receives a confirmation, so you know that a product is 100% gluten free when you are buying it here. It is a relief to walk into a store and KNOW you can come out with a delicious product.

Steven has done a great job at networking with food distributors, organizations, and companies to offer a wide variety of products. Many unique products are being offered here that I have not seen in other stores.

Their store is sure to be a great asset to the local community, and I have no doubt it will continue to grow!

Pane e Vino
Providence, Rhode Island (RI) View On Map
A few weeks ago I enjoyed a delicious gluten free dinner, in the company of good friends, at a venue located in Providence, Rhode Islands' historic Federal Hill district - otherwise known as "Little Italy". I was anticipating an especially satisfying dining experience, and I'm happy to say Pane e Vino delivered.

Pane e Vino, Italian for "bread and wine" welcomes you the minute you walk through the entrance doors of the handsome historic building. From the hostess' greeting to the warm amber interior lighting, Pane e Vino is filled with charm.

Pane e Vino opened its doors in 2002, with a vision of serving "fresh, simple and honest" comfort food, similar to the food he grew up eating with his mother and grandmother. The separate gluten-free menu was introduced a short 6 months ago, which consists of a vast selection of gluten-free offerings.

The GF menu noted many of the items on the regular menu could also be modified to be gluten-free and "though the kitchen is not 100% gluten-free, the chef will take precautions to avoid cross contamination by preparing the meal on cleaned surfaces". Our server was accommodating and knowledgeable about the gluten-free menu and I was immediately at ease.

Though Pane e Vino is well suited for a romantic dinner for two, it accommodates families and larger groups as well. The restaurant offers a fixed price gluten-free Trattoria menu ($19.95 per person, which includes antipasti, entree, dessert and coffee/tea) which is available Monday through Friday from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. and all day Sunday.

Distrito
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (PA) View On Map
Despite his growing culinary stature, Jose Garces hasn't forgotten that those with gluten intolerance enjoy dining out too. The Philly-based Iron Chef has created dedicated menus for many of his restaurants, and even those that don't have a standalone bill of fare are able to accommodate gluten-free patrons. Distrito rose to the occasion at our recent dinner there.

Knowing that we were going to order a variety of dishes - most are served tapas-style that foster sharing - we passed on the guacamole and stuck to the entry-level tortilla chips and a pico de gallo salsa. Complimentary spicy peanuts also ready the palate.

Everyone ordered tacos of their choosing; for three of us, it was a trio of flat-iron steak tacos seasoned in a tomato-horseradish marinade with truffle potatoes. Our younger son played it safe with chicken. We also rounded out our protein quotient with a large chicken-and-chihuahua cheese enchilada and roasted pork tamales.

We just couldn't pass up dessert. Notwithstanding the name, the four of us shared the "El Fuerte for Two." The sinful flourless chocolate cake was served a la mode with espresso ice cream drizzled with vanilla mousseline.

The Ginger Exchange
Cambridge, Massachusetts (MA) View On Map
Saturday night, my friends and I ventured out for sushi. I had already resigned to eating mine without soy sauce, but when we got to The Ginger Exchange I discovered that not only do they have gluten free soy sauce, but they have an entire gluten free section of their menu. As always, I was very excited. So excited that I just had to get the gluten free pad thai instead of sushi. We also split some gluten free fresh rolls to start. My friends still got sushi and it looked great.

With lots of gluten free options for me, and good sushi, dumplings, and never ending beer for my friends, The Ginger Exchange turned out to be a great place to go. It's always nice to be pleasantly surprised by restaurants you know nothing about.

Kesté Pizzeria
West Village, New York City (NYC) View On Map
I've been hearing about Kesté Pizza for a long time and I recently had the opportunity to check it out for the first time. My friend suggested that we check it out because of the restaurant's gluten free pizza, served up on Mondays and Tuesdays.

Upon our arrival we were promptly seated at a tiny table. I'm still adjusting to the size of many restaurants here in New York after the spacious life in Los Angeles! The restaurant only has three options on its gluten free menu: Mast Nicola, Marinara, and Margherita. I was starving when we sat down and quickly placed an order of the Margherita pizza.

We caught up over wine and were surprised when, after a short time, our pizzas were served at our tables. I immediately dug in because I was too hungry to resist. What immediately jumped out to me was the crust; it wasn't crunchy and flavorless like many gluten free crusts but was instead soft and spongy. It was very chewy and definitely had a consistency which more closely resembled gluten-filled crusts like Domino's. Had I known how large the pizza was going to be, I would have suggested that we split one. Instead we both left with leftovers.

I would definitely visit Kesté again but do have to mention that the meal was a bit expensive, totaling about $25 on my end. While I left with some food for the next day, Kesté may have to remain an infrequent treat.

Trattoria Mollie
Santa Barbara, California (CA) View On Map
Tonight we decided to get dinner and then put up our Chrismukkah decorations. We went to Trattoria Mollie's so that we would have plenty of energy to put together our fake tree that has made it through two cross country moves. I had a salad with a lemon dressing and shaved parmigiano. It was nice and light. I then had the Medaglioni di Melanzane alla Piastra con Speck al Profumo di Pesto. This consisted of grilled eggplant with mozzarella, smoked ham and pesto sauce. I then had gluten-free pasta. You heard right... ANOTHER restaurant that offers GF pasta! Are we lucky or what?

I had the Spaghetti con Pancetta e Ricotta salata. It was GF spaghetti, smoked Italian bacon and ricotta cheese in a light tomato sauce. It was quite yummy. They use the Trader Joe's brand rice flour pasta. To finish off the meal, they made me a small portion of their Panna Cotta. This naturally GF dessert had a wonderful chocolate drizzle and was surrounded by a strawberry sauce. I don't know how we got anything done after eating the amount that we did.

Seasons 52
, Chain View On Map
Last Sunday evening we went out for dinner, an opportunity to wrap up the Thanksgiving festivities with a meal that included no leftovers. We decided to visit Seasons 52 in Kansas City, a relatively new-to-the-area restaurant located in a picturesque area of the city, especially during the holidays. I knew I wanted to dine with them because they have a dedicated gluten-free menu, offer fresh, local food and everything on the menu is 475 calories or less. Sounds right up my alley!

When it came time to order food, I had questions. See, they have a vegetarian menu, a vegan menu and a gluten-free menu. But the gluten-free menu does not include a vegetarian entree. No need to fret, our server said she would ask the chef what could be done to make the vegetable plate on the regular menu gluten-free. That's right, the server knew she could ask the chef for help adjusting a menu item to fit my needs. She came back and told me he would make a gluten-free vegetable entree for me. YES! My dinner was absolutely delicious. Roasted squash, a plentiful serving of asparagus, savory mushrooms, a large beautiful plate of vegetables...It was an incredible meal.

The Bald Strawberry
Cape Canaveral, Florida (FL) View On Map
If you live here or are visiting the Central Florida area and you are craving a "gluten free beach day" this is where you want to go! The owners of the shop, Linda and her "apprentice" son, Joseph, are as warm and inviting as all the goodies within. On this visit they were serving both gluten items and gluten free, but had two separate kitchens, which made me feel extra safe in eating their food items. Since then they have gone completely gluten free....they have obviously become quite a hit! : ) I, as I am sure many others have felt this feeling too....felt like I had found the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow that afternoon.

I purchased several items. A loaf of bread, some gooey chocolate bars, chocolate chip cookies and snickerdoodle cookies. The bread was moist and very tasty.... and it had been quite some time since I had enjoyed a slice of delicious soft bread with butter so I was in heaven. It was perfect to enjoy with dinner that night and for sandwiches during the week.

Linda and Joseph serve delicious sandwiches and pizza....and even a breakfast pizza. You can choose from several bread types as well as try one of their 3 sandwiches: The Joe Cool, The V Club, or the Rockin Rueben, or build your own. I chose to have a turkey with avocado, red onion, spinach, fresh basil and provolone cheese.

The front room of The Bald Strawberry is set up with a few tables and bar stools for you to sit and enjoy some coffee and sweets. Linda has also decorated 3 separate rooms with comfy seats and different themes for you to sit and enjoy some coffee, tea and sweets or wait there while your sandwich or pizza is being made/cooked for you.

So whether you live in the Central Florida area or are visiting the theme parks or taking a cruise....and gluten free....The Bald Strawberry is a delicious, warm and fuzzy, 100% gluten free bakery with awesome ambiance and wonderful owners. ?You will want to come back again and again.

Matanzas Innlet Restaurant
Saint Augustine, Florida (FL) View On Map
When we go on a trek somewhere I always have to preplan on where I can safely eat. I don't have to do that when going to Palm Coast. This was probably our fifth visit and each time we come we make a stop for lunch at The Matanzas Innlet Restaurant. If you are in the St. Augustine area and are looking for a delicious and safe gluten free meal this is where you want to stop. The Restaurant has a separate area where they prepare the gluten free food and their menu has several appetizers, soups and varied meals (seafood, tacos, pizza and pasta), as well as a dessert. The pasta used is a rice pasta and make sure you specify gluten free corn tortillas for the tacos. The gluten free meals were added to the menu by one of the owners, who was diagnosed with celiac. All the staff have been trained to avoid cross contamination. It's sometimes amazing what happens when you have been gluten free for a bit and have been limited on your choices for appetizers, dinner and desserts. All of a sudden you find yourself ordering desserts when you have not in years. Thank goodness we were going to get some exercise after this on the rocky beach!

Mitchell's Fish Market
, Chain View On Map
Recently I was driving through the Winter Park Village shopping area and had passed by Mitchell's Fish Market. It looked like a great place to eat with outdoor dining and "Fresh" caught my eye. I like fresh and that often can easily lead to an easy to do gluten free meal. I quickly googled it and immediately came up with Mitchell's gluten free menu, which includes appetizers, meals and desserts. This Friday we had the opportunity to try it out. Mitchell's was one of those restaurants that definitely "Got It". They will do their best, they have trained staff, designated gluten free utensils, and a clean work surface to prepare your meal! Yea! While going out to eat always will put us in a position to get "glutened" these simple precautions can lessen that chance almost entirely. Thank you Mitchell's! I did not feel like I had to pray before my meal today, a true blessing. So definitely if you are searching for a safe and delicious gluten free meal - Try Mitchell's out!

Picazzo's Organic Italian Kitchen
Sedona, Arizona (AZ) View On Map
My first introduction to Picazzo's was by way of a take-out gluten-free Milano pizza which was brought back to our hotel in Sedona, accompanied by a slice of organic cheesecake. The Milano, topped with sweet caramelized onions, was one of the best gluten-free pizza's I had ever tasted, and the cheesecake was a little slice of heaven, if heaven rained a mildly sweet raspberry sauce. Yes, that good.

Looking forward to dining in the next time, we headed over to their location on Highway 89A. Both Picazzo's upscale casual dining room and cozy bar area, were packed with diners of all ages. In addition to a variety of organic gluten-free pizza, there is also a large assortment of gluten-free appetizers, entrees, and sweet endings to choose from! Gluten-Free pasta options included organic Ancient Harvest Quinoa Pasta, brown rice spaghetti, spirals, or penne and most anything on the menu could be modified to be gluten-free. Owner Rick Freedman, a Sedona resident, started the restaurant in 2002, but in 2010, decided to go all organic. Picazzo's menu now consists of fresh, organic and local ingredients, nitrate-free meats, and non-GMO oils to create even healthier meals.

Picazzo's servers were helpful and very knowledgeable about Celiac and gluten-free. In fact, our server's mother had coeliac and she mentioned several of the servers at Picazzo's either had coeliac or were gluten-sensitive. Picazzo's is a delightful gem for the gluten-intolerant, and though this was probably far from reality, in my own mind, I imagined every table had a least one gluten-intolerant diner! While cross contamination is always a possibility, I felt unusually safe dining here. Whether gluten-intolerant or not, Picazzo's is an enjoyable dining experience.

Angelica Kitchen
East Village, New York City (NYC) View On Map
I went to Angelica Kitchen in the East Village earlier this week for dinner. I've been to Angelica Kitchen a few times before, but it's definitely been at least a year since the last time I ate here. Angelica Kitchen is a vegan restaurant - they serve nothing with animal products, dairy or eggs. For my main dish, "Occupy Wild Rice" came with wild rice-tofu cakes including arame, sauteed onions, celery & tofu cheese; served over roasted leeks glaze & drizzled with sweet potato-tahini cream. Accompanied by broccoli & roasted turnips; garnished with mustard greens, escarole, arugula & teenage lettuce.

Overall, we enjoyed dinner. Angelica Kitchen is not an upscale restaurant but the food is still pretty good and it's not expensive. I've been here a couple of times and will probably go back again. Angelica Kitchen only takes cash and they don't accept reservations. Angelica Kitchen tells you which of the Daily Specials are gluten-free so for example "Occupy Wild Rice" and "Thursday's Noimaki" as well as the "Thursday's Salad" were all gluten-free as was the black-bean soup. On it's regular menu, Angelica Kitchen doesn't list which items are safe for celiacs. You have to request the gluten-free menu which they'll bring you in a binder.

Native Foods Cafe
, Chain View On Map
There is a great addition to the Bridgeport Villiage Shopping Center in Tualatin Oregon. We have dined twice at Native and have been very pleased. Ask for the gluten free menu! The salads are wonderful and the service rates 5 stars. They started in Palm Springs and have expanded to Chicago, Los Angeles and now the Portland area with more locations to follow. Very unique, different and delicious. *Note: If you visit a new location like in Tualatin Oregon, ask for the manager on duty to explain that you need your dish 100% gluten free. They are very curtious and go the extra mile to make sure you will be back!

Bunky's
Madison, Wisconsin (WI) View On Map
I'm sure anyone who's been gluten free in Madison for more than a month knows about Bunky's. It seems like they've been catering to gluten free diners in Madison before it was cool to do so. I think that one of the main reasons that they're so great is because the owners have a family member with gluten intolerance and they really seem to be on a mission to provide great GF food to the community. If you've ever been to Bunky's you know that the atmosphere in the restaurant is one of a kind. It's part grandma's house, part Middle Eastern marketplace and all uniquely Bunky's! Their move to the new location on Atwood a short distance away from their original Atwood location did not dampen the unique style of this restaurant.

I vaguely remember ordering a couple different items when I first ate at Bunky's before I discovered the magic that is the pesto pizza and I have to admit that it's now the only thing I get there. It's been so long since I've had anything else except for their desserts that I can't honestly comment on anything else on their menu. They do have GF pasta available with most of their pasta dishes and can do any of their pizzas on the GF crust which is made by Silly Yak Bakery. This past Tuesday I was there with a friend and as always ordered the pesto pizza which has pesto as the sauce with spinach, basil, cheese and artichokes on top. I always get the large size so that I have some to take home for the next day. As always, it did not disappoint. Silly Yak also carries Bunky's pizzas frozen for preparation at home and I have gotten these in a pinch, but I really prefer getting them made at the restaurant.

As I alluded to above, Bunky's also makes amazing gluten free desserts - the difficult part is saving room for them when the entrees are so delicious, but I always seem to find room. They always have several GF options and this time I had the chocolate mouse pie which was light, fluffy and heavenly. I've had several of their desserts and they have all been excellent! If you're in the market for great gluten free food in a cozy, quirky atmosphere, Bunky's is the place to be! Enjoy.

Paprika Cafe
Monterey, California (CA) View On Map
We hopped in our car and headed down Highway 1 to Carmel Valley for Labor Day weekend. I did a bit of research before our trip for potential restaurants and stops, and found what looked to be an excellent gluten free option in Monterey, CA called Paprika Cafe. I adore any Mediterranean influenced meal. Something about the cuisine makes my taste buds sing. The food is light, delicious, yet satisfying.

We entered the tiny cafe and Christophe, the owner, warmly greeted us. Christophe is not just the owner - he's the waiter, the chef, the busy boy, and the cashier. He welcomed us as if we were guests in his home. When I told him of my dietary restrictions, he smiled and said he could absolutely take care of me - that I could have any of the vegetarian or meat platters, but that he would switch the pita bread with some warmed corn tortillas and the tabouleh with a spinach salad. How nice to have someone who immediately understands and also has thought ahead about substitutions so you can still enjoy a full meal! I chose the garlic chicken based on the Yelp reviews and my word, I was not disappointed.

Masala Dosa
San Fransisco, California (CA) View On Map
Dreamy, delicious Indian food is finally available gluten free in our neighborhood, the Inner Sunset. Masala Dosa recently opened and when we saw that were offering South Indian food along with the widely available Northern Indian cuisine, we knew we were in for a treat. Masala Dosa serves your traditional curries but also a thin crepe dish called a dosa. The dosas are made with rice flour and are usually gluten free, naturally. Inside is a choice of filling, usually a mix of spiced potatoes and onions. The dish is always served with sambhar (center), a soup made of lentils, and various chutneys. Here, they have a coconut chutney that's out of this world.

The staff is incredibly welcoming to those with food allergies or dietary restrictions. We've been here several times and while the menu is extensive even with my dietary restrictions, I always order this traditional masala dosa. From first bite they hooked me, and I find myself craving this at odd hours of the day.

I tried Delicious Pizza Restaurant, in Glenn Cove, NY and was very glad I did. I had gluten free penne pasta with amazing marinara sauce. YUM! I don't think you can quite comprehend how deep this bowl is! It was never ending!! I was so very proud of myself for being able to eat this much. It was delicious pasta, perfectly cooked (not overcooked, not mushy) and the marina was just sheer perfection. Delicious Pizza Restaurant truly does make delicious pasta!

Legal Sea Foods
, Chain View On Map
Flying from Philly to Pittsburgh last week for work I found myself with a few hours to kill in the Philadelphia airport. I decided to treat myself to lunch at Legal Sea Foods because I knew they had a gluten free menu. It's pretty rare to find gluten free food in an airport, so this was a nice treat. I ended up getting a cesar salad with grilled shrimp. It was very good and even had gluten free croutons on it. Like when I ate at Legal Sea Foods in Boston, I was served warm gluten free roles and the manager brought over my meal and informed me that they took my food allergy very seriously. A nice touch I think.

relish
Allentown, Pennsylvania (PA) View On Map
I found Relish online and made a point of going when I was in Allentown, PA. They have so many gluten free options for breakfast, lunch, and dinner that I was sad I only had the time to go once. For such a casual place, the menu is pretty impressive. For breakfast they have pancakes, french toast, waffles, omelets, and eggs benedict. For lunch they have numerous salads and sandwiches. At dinner they add on some appetizers and entrees.

I was bound and determined to get the mac and cheese, and seeing as it was only a side dish, I got the Thai Cobb Salad to go along with it. The macaroni and cheese, unfortunately, wasn't as good as I was hoping for. It consisted of globby gluten free pasta with some cheese on it. I was expecting more of a bechamel cheese sauce, but I guess I was just hoping for my mom's mac and cheese and that's not really fair. For dessert I got some amazing cheesecake to go from Moondance Desserts.

Despite not loving the mac and cheese, there are so many other things at Relish I want to try: blueberry pancakes, eggs benedict, asian pear salad, fresh grilled chicken wrap, southern pulled pork sandwich, pizza, mini potato pancakes, crab cakes, mozzarella sticks, tropical tilapia, pork chops, gluten free ravioli, and pretty much everything else. I can't wait until my next meeting in the Allentown area. I'll definitely be stopping by Relish again.

Henrietta's Table
Cambridge, Massachusetts (MA) View On Map
We had a nice celebratory dinner with our family at one of our favorite restaurants, Henrietta's Table in Harvard Square. Henrietta's Table is famous for their brunch, but it is an equally appealing dinner option too. This is another great Cambridge restaurant that celebrates local produce.

I have been to Henrietta's Table several times and have always found the staff to be accommodating and helpful with my food allergy. This trip was no different. The staff is always willing to go back and check on various items. Many of their menu items are naturally gluten-free. When I informed my waiter of my allergy and he immediately knew what I was talking about and said to order away, that almost everything on the menu was ok (except the lamb) and if it wasn't, the dish could be modified to make it suitable. It's so nice to look at a menu and see options rather than restrictions. I found it hard to make my choice with so many great options, but I eventually decided on a special: grilled swordfish with butternut squash puree and parsnip chips.

For gluten-free diners, your options at dessert are more limited than dinner, but that is to be expected. The good news is that they do have a nice range of dessert wines and ice creams and sorbets to offer. It was a fantastic meal. I would really recommend Henrietta's Table to any gluten-free diner.
