Chimu Peruvian Cusina and Steak
Brooklyn, New York City (NYC) View On Map
What would be a trip to the US without trying some traditional Latin American food? I don't think I have ever seen a Peruvian restaurant in Sydney, so Chimu was a first time experience for me. I love experiencing different cultures, especially the traditional cuisine.

The ambience in Chimu was extremely vibrant, alive with chatter and bursting with delicious smells. Again, the wait staff was right on the ball and serving us within minutes of being seated. We ordered our meals and before long we were off and away experiencing the culinary delights of Peru. My dish was a medley of cold seafood in a fresh dressing with Peruvian corn. As you can see from the pictures the corn was gigantic. Others had a variety of foods from steaks to soups and assorted accompaniments. I personally enjoyed my dish and from the buzz around the table, so did everyone else. Some of us did struggle to finish our meals, as these were all extremely large.

The restaurant itself is quite big and extends to an outside courtyard. The walls are all decorated in bright colours with assorted cultural artefacts. Similar to the Manhattan Inn, do not let the front door deceive you. Inside, Chimu is truly another world, leaving behind the dirty graffiti covered storefront.

Manhattan Inn
Brooklyn, New York City (NYC) View On Map
From the front of the restaurant the Manhattan Inn does not look like much, but don't let looks deceive you. Our waitress seated us at the back of the restaurant, which has a very large and beautiful sunroof. The tables surround a grand piano, which lies in the middle of the floor under the sunlight. It truly is a beautiful setting on any night of the week.

Our waitress was very attentive to our whole table, especially as I explained to her my gluten and lactose free requirements. The Manhattan Inn does have gluten and lactose free options, but you just need to ask for these. After we ordered we had the pleasure of listening to a brilliant pianist who began playing early in the night. The ambience of the Manhattan Inn was alive from the beginning we arrived and was only getting more crowded as its sheer popularity became apparent to us.

The meals all came out in a timely manner, except for mine. So, I waited and I waited and yes I waited some more. Everyone was finished their meal and I was asking the waitress for a second time for where my meal was. Turns out the chef forgot, so I was served a late but completely free meal. No complaints from me. Free food is always good. The meal itself was great food. The chicken was tender and the vegetables had beautiful flavours. I was not too keen on the burgers I saw the girls eating though, which had thick greasy oil seeping out. Not appealing, but they said the burgers were extremely tasty.

Overall, the experience we had at the Manhattan Inn was a lot of fun, combined with great entertainment and free food. If you are in Brooklyn I would advise you to check this restaurant out for either a quick bite or relaxing dinner.

Asia De Cuba
Madison Avenue , New York City (NYC) View On Map
This was one of my absolute favourites in NYC, which I plan to go back to the next time I am in town. Upon entering the restaurant you will feel the glowing red ambience that instantly calms you. The one thing that I really notice in restaurants is the seating because bad seats make for a very uncomfortable meal. Asia De Cuba offers white leather upholstery that is well padded and designed to have you eating and drinking for hours.

The thing that stuck out most to me when booking this restaurant was the fact that they offered gluten free menus, which of course they did. The menu was a cut down version of the original menu with some modifications, but you still have plenty of options to choose from. We ordered half from the original menu and half from the gluten free menu to share. The service throughout the night was great with wait staff continuously offering our table drinks, including water and fast food service. Each of our meals was large in size and beautifully presented. Of all the plates we ordered each offered its own flavours and was delicious. Accompanying the meal were beautiful cocktails, which we thoroughly enjoyed... maybe a little too much.

I thoroughly recommend going to Asia De Cuba for dinner, not just for the food but the experience. Do make sure you book ahead as it is a popular spot for New Yorkers.

Hard Rock Cafe
Theatre District, New York City (NYC) View On Map
The Hard Rock Cafe was surprising because I did not think they would accommodate for gluten free food options, however I was wrong. Before dining here we did ask if they had gluten free food on the menu and sure enough there were plenty of options for me. The food was good, not the wow factor, but for a cheap night out it is a lot of fun at the cafe. The chicken wings were super yummy and great to have some that were gluten free. My main was average, but I could not complain, as it was what I expected for the style of restaurant.

The atmosphere was absolutely alive at the Hard Rock. The restaurant was packed out and buzzing with life. The decorations make it fun to read the walls and follow the history of pop culture. The service on top of it all was fantastic, which is one of the upsides of paying tips in the US. Because everyone is working based on tips, service is usually top notch, unlike Australia where many times you are waiting hours for just a lousy glass of water.

Also on a side note, if you are taking friends or family there for a birthday let the staff know on the down low. They will later come out during dessert and take your friend to the middle of the restaurant, get them up on a chair and have everyone singing happy birthday to them. Its great fun and everyone gets a laugh as we did!

The Bombay Bistro
Boulder, Colorado (CO) View On Map
This restaurants offers a homemade gluten-free naan to soak up all the delicious gluten free indian food. Need I say more. Try it, you'll love it. I went to this restaurant with my husbands family. We had an entire table of dietary restrictions including dairy free, vegetarian and gluten-free. Thankfully, the chef was able to accommodate us and we all were able to share about 6 different dishes. It was wonderful!

Suki Thai
Boulder, Colorado (CO) View On Map
Suki Thai is one of those places that doesn't catch your eye. It's in a small strip mall near the college campus of CU, however the fresh ingredients at this noodle house are fantastic. Almost the entire menu is gluten-free (I think one of the owners has a gluten-intolerance). All gluten free menu items are labeled GF. They cook each noodle bowl in a new pot and you can watch everything being made while waiting in line to pay. Red coconut curry is my favorite and for extra kick, try the GF Suki sauce! To make this an even better experience lunch costs under 10 bucks.

Centro Latin Kitchen and Refreshment Palace
Boulder, Colorado (CO) View On Map
I have to admit, I have been to Centro about eight times and I always order the same thing. I am sure most of the food is delish, but I really LOVE the habenero pork tacos. They are spicy and remind me of food I would find on the Baja. The black beans on the side and achiote rice are excellent complements to the spicy tacos. Yum! I hear the enchiladas and veggie tacos are good too! Talk to the wait staff- they know all about gluten-intolerance. Almost anything on the menu can be made gluten-free and made with corn tortillas. Eat here, but don't forget to have the best and most refreshing cuban mojito along side your meal!

Boulder, Colorado (CO) View On Map
On any given day you can walk into Salt, have a fancy cocktail made by the infamous mixologists and dip your gluten free bread into fresh butter. I love SALT because the food is comforting, perfectly flavorful, and not pretentious. The ambiance is industrial meets vintage meets super chic. Somehow it works beautifully and the patio is great for people watching along Pearl Street. Cross contamination is always an issue when eating gluten free and having Celiac, but SALT is knowledgable of their made to order food! There is even a separate fryer for french fries to avoid cross contamination. Talk to the waiter to explain your food allergy/intolerance and they will definitely help you out! One of my favorite menu items is the never ever burger with vermont cheddar cheese, pickled onions, house-made ketchup on top of a seasonal green salad...and never ever meaning, no hormones and no anti-biotics...ever. I've also had the Rosemary Rotisserie chicken with garlic and olive oil and local roasted veggies (carrots, onions and potatoes). SALT uses seasonal ingredients so the menu changes according to the local farms. My favorite spirit is the Rum Mint Sangria with dancing pines rum, fresh mint, triple sec, lemon juice and white wine.

The Garden Cafe
Woodstock, New York (NY) View On Map
After spending a few days in the city, we headed to a wedding in Woodstock. I could not believe our luck when a stone's throw away from our B&B, was a sign saying "Pizza - Gluten-Free!"

What!? Really!? Turns out the restaurant, The Garden Cafe, features vegan food and serves gluten-free pasta, breads, and amazingly delicious grilled, gluten-free pizza! Not only was gluten-free pizza on the menu, but it was being cooked on a huge grill out in the lovely garden. After tasting how good this pizza was, I introduced myself to John Barbaro - the pizza grill is his gig at the restaurant. John told me he makes his gluten-free dough with "some rice flours, water, and fresh herbs," and those ingredients - combined with it being a thin crust - and cooked on the grill is what makes it so good. (I'm hoping to get some measurements soon!) Those of you who are gluten-free know just how hard it is to find a great pizza crust! My son proceeded to have three of these pizzas during our two day stay in Woodstock. John also let my little guys "help" at the grill, while telling them about a dessert pizza he makes with chocolate, peanut butter and whipped cream! Oh my! Thank you, John!

G-Free NYC
, New York City (NYC) View On Map
I was thrilled to find G-Free NYC, a gluten-free market - just 4 blocks from our hotel, on the upper west side. On the second day of our trip, in the pouring rain, under a huge hotel umbrella (that my boys wanted no part of), we walked to the market. We were greeted by the owner, Lynn Shute, who immediately offered us a delicious, gluten-free chocolate, chocolate chip cookie. Lynn showed us around her super cute, warm store, fitted with a huge, soft, wooden butcher block in the center. It was here we found gluten-free Heaven Mills Cinnamon Rolls that my son would be having for breakfast everyday on the rest of our trip. We also grabbed a couple boxes of The Grainless Baker Cheddar Snackers, which were fantastic! Lynn offers fresh baked goods from a number of sources, and the shelves and freezers are packed with things like biscotti, pastas and frozen pita breads, small pizza crusts, complete boxed gluten-free meals, and more. I wish this gem of a store were near us in LA, but should you find yourself looking for gluten-free in NYC, please don't miss G-Free NYC!

Earth Matters Organic Cafe
Lower East Side, New York City (NYC) View On Map
This is a great cafe in the Lower East Side, which I absolutely loved. I found this one lunchtime when the girls went to Katz deli, which did not cater for Coeliac's. To my surprise I found Earth Matter's right around the corner tucked away in the street. Earth Matters is an organic cafe that makes all the food on site, so everyday it is fresh and exciting. The cafe is broken up into two levels, so you can order downstairs and then tuck yourself away upstairs to enjoy your food with a great book or tap away on your laptop. There is also a grocery section in the cafe, if you are looking for organic ingredients to take home with you afterwards.

I ordered the wild rice and chicken pesto combo salad, which was delicious. Afterwards I was still feeling a little puckish, so I ordered the wild berry smoothie, which has no diary. Another great plus for the cafe. There are not only gluten free options, but also plenty of lactose free items on the menu. I ended up falling asleep in my chair in the cafe just soaking up the afternoon sun. I will definitely be going back to Earth Matters next time I am in NYC.

Tony DiNapoli
Times Square, New York City (NYC) View On Map
Now if you are looking for something more substantial to tuck into over lunch then Tony is your man. This restaurant was situated in Times Square only a few steps from our apartment. What Tony does not advertise is that they have gluten free pasta and pizza options, but you need to ask. We had a very enthusiastic and super helpful waiter who helped us to navigate our way through the giant menu. I kept it simple for lunch and ordered the gluten free spaghetti bolognese, whilst my friends ordered the gluten options. The food portions were typical American style, which were huge. I was struggling to finish my pasta, which was immensely enjoyable. The quality of the food combined with the prices was well worth the stop at Tony Di Napoli's. I would suggest this restaurant for either lunch or dinner, you really cannot go wrong here. Its basic Italian, but fills you up and keeps you coming back for more.

, Chain View On Map
This is a fast food restaurant with a twist. Freshii provides both pre-designed salad suggestions or you can create your own salad from their extensive ingredient menu. The best part is there are plenty of gluten free options on the menu and the staff understand what this means. I was completely bombarded with the suggestions, so I chose the chicken, blueberry and spinach salad. The meal was great for a quick bite to eat, whilst cruising through Times Square sightseeing. The salad was fresh, crisp and refreshing with a great price to match. If you are going there try a salad, you can't go wrong because you can completely design it yourself.

Slate Street Cafe
Albuquerque, New Mexico (NM) View On Map
On a recent rendezvous to Albuquerque, I had the most wonderful meal at Slate Street Cafe. Many of the staff follow a gluten-free diet and the owner has a family member with Coeliac Disease. Yay! The food here is amazing. It is presented well, it's fresh and full of flavor. Plus a drink in the wine loft before the meal is a nice touch. They have a separate gluten-free menu, just ask the hostess when you take your seat! My meal included a peach glazed seared salmon with sauteed green beans, sugar snap peas, snow peas and a spicy kiwi-mango salsa. Awesome! All the salads are gluten free and the one that caught my eye was the grilled peach and prosciutto salad with spring greens, asparagus, golden tomatoes and shaved parmesan.

Zinc is an awesome place to listen to music and have a wonderful meal. The hostess, chef and waitress were all knowledgeable about my intolerance and assured me that I would have a safe meal. It was wonderful! I had the New Mexico raised steak and a mixed green salad with homemade champagne vinaigrette. I will be back.

The American Grilled Cheese Kitchen
San Fransisco, California (CA) View On Map
If you're in San Francisco and looking for a big lunch, you should check out the American Grilled Cheese Kitchen! As the name implies, they offer a variety of different types of grilled cheese sandwiches including ones made with gluten free bread!

The place offers some indoor seating but most tables are outside and it gets crowded, so there can be a wait for tables.

I ordered a Gluten Free Mousetrap. This was made using Tillamook Sharp Cheddar, Creamy Havarti and Monterey Jack on Gluten Free Bread. The sandwich was delicious but huge! Half of a sandwich was really more than enough for a meal! Also, all grilled cheese sandwiches are served with an orange. They also sold an assortment of gluten free potato chips by the brand, Deep River Snacks. I had the Rosemary Potato Chips and they were amazing!

San Fransisco, California (CA) View On Map
Another great place that didn't have a gluten free menu but was very accommodating with a gluten free diet, was the restaurant Boulevard. Here I started with the Bruin Farms Tomato Salad. This included buffalo mozzarella, shaved market squash and parmesan colatura tuile, pine nuts and arbequina extra virgin olive oil. For my entree, I enjoyed the Pan Roasted Hawaiian Walu and Gulf White Prawns which came alongside butterball potatoes with grated heirloom tomatoes, chili flake and parsley, baby artichokes, fava beans, and lemon relish. And for dessert, I had the Chocolate Angel Pie. This was a tainori chocolate mousse with a vanilla meringue crust, banana caramel and chocolate sauce with bananas foster. It was delicious!

Tavern 27
Laconia, New Hampshire (NH) View On Map
This is, hands down, the BEST gluten free find EVER. I cried, literally, with joy because everything pretty much amounted to my gluten free version of heaven. Laconia itself is a medium sized town set within a few lakes in lower New Hampshire. The buildings are a mix of old, Victorian and modern and the atmosphere seemed full of relaxation and a simple connection to life and the environment that you can rarely feel in a town. Tavern 27, soon to be The Mystic Meadows, fits right in and includes a restaurant, golf course and a little antique and boutique called Magical Mystery Store. It is Tapas Style food with an American twist, making it ideal for trying a number of their dishes at one meal. The elegant menu was simple and contained many items which are made gluten free, with mainly only the obvious items seeming to be non-gluten free friendly. An added bonus was a gluten free dedicated fryer, a rare find in most chain restaurants so it is incredible to find this in a tiny non-chain.

Everyone was incredibly nice, friendly, helpful and open to discussing anything and everything we had a question about. The owners explained that they went with gluten free options because one of their mother's was gluten free. Making GF food is a challenge that they love.We tried 7 dishes and we made two separate orders, because what we ordered the first time was so good we had to try more. Items came out at different times, making it easier to savor every little bite, and boy was that needed. We topped it off with a Rootini (Root beer and Ginger Martini), a Bards and complimentary bottle of ionized water. In total, everything came to about 100 dollars well spent on GREAT food and company. For tapas this price is great for the amount of food!

Pat's Pizza
, Chain View On Map
An old Coca Cola Sign with the words 'gluten free crust caught our eyes and had us making an instant u-turn at almost 10pm at night. Pat's pizza is a small chain located throughout Maine who offers not only gluten free alternatives to every one of their pizza's but also Wood Chuck Hard Ciders, perfect to end a long day! This place was clean and spacious, but most importantly every table had trivia pursuit cards! What fun! Our waitress was very helpful in describing the kitchen procedure for gluten free cooking, which was a cautious and caring procedure. Pizzas were cooked on their own dedicated gluten free pans used only for the gluten free pizzas and were served on a sheet of wax paper so they don't touch the plate.

I ordered the Auger and Ruben Pizzas and have reviewed many gluten free pizza places but this place takes the gluten free cake, or pie in this case. The crust, which I am not sure was made there or purchased elsewhere, is the perfect thickness and texture that is genuinely reminiscent of non-gluten free Pizza. This is of course hard to come by for gf crusts. Both The Auger had pesto,chicken,provolone cheese, tomato and cheddar cheese. It tasted like something you would purchase at a gourmet pizza place in New York City. As I said, WOW. The Ruben Pizza was a Ruben sandwich on a pizza crust, a simply unique and delicious Idea. The only mistake made was that the pastrami for the Ruben was actually ham, none the less still delicious! I really could find nothing wrong with Pat's Pizza, although GF Pasta may also be a big hit and benefit to their menu!
