Crosby Street Hotel
Soho, New York City (NYC) View On Map
We went to eat at the Crosby Street Hotel on Sunday for dinner and it turns out that they have a fantastic gluten-free menu.

What I like the most about the Crosby Street Hotel is the decor. It's fun to just walk around because the interior design is so interesting :) When I arrived to dinner, I was seated between two tables, both talking about politics. I think they might have been from DC. My friend arrived shortly after I did, and we took a look at the menu which is gluten-free friendly.

I ordered the House Salad to start and then the "Flatbread, hummus, smoked eggplant dip, guacamole, olives," which is delicious on its own. BUT what's amazing about Crosby Bar is that they have gluten-free bread and pasta so they were able to substitute in gluten-free bread for the flatbread and it was really really good.

I love this bar and it has been added to my top places to eat in NYC if you're gluten-free :)

The Oar House
Dahlonega, Georgia (GA) View On Map
It was my birthday yesterday and that meant research was needed to find a fabulous new place to eat a gluten-free meal. There are a number of Atlanta-area restaurants with gluten-free menus/options, but since our daughter was with her grandparents, we opted for a restaurant in North Georgia called The Oar House.

Why did we choose The Oar House when it is about an hour drive away? They make almost everything from scratch and they offer a number of gluten-free menu items. They also understand the gluten-free diet because their former chef, Leanne, has Coeliac Disease. Chef Leanne made it her mission to create gluten-free versions of menu items that would please all customers. Since she has moved on, the current chef has kept on with their gluten-free menu offerings of homemade bread, entrees and a chocolate chocolate chip rum cake that is 'slap your mama' good.

The Oar House sits next to a river in an old house that has been transformed into a restaurant. It has pretty eccentric decor, twinkly lights outside and a patio/deck that overlooks the river. We walked in the door tired from the long drive and were quickly escorted to our seats. We had already specified my dietary restrictions, so they had gluten-free bread ready for me and walked me through the menu.

They can modify most anything on the menu, but they couldn't modify the crab cakes. I quickly chose the duck, but to my surprise the chef offered to make us a complimentary appetizer that contained crab meat, as we had driven such a long way and it was my birthday. The appetizer consisted of three sliced tomatoes topped with a crab-meat mixture and asparagus. It was quite beautiful and tasty, so we knew the rest of the meal would be wonderful.

My duck was tender, juicy and paired well with the lavender honey sauce. I had sauteed spinach and asparagus for my sides because their wild rice contains orzo. My husband had the blackened salmon with corn risotto (fish special) and ate every bite. They brought me out the chocolate chocolate chip rum cake with a candle and topped it off with a shot of rum. It was light, flavorful and the perfect way to end the meal. They also have a solid wine list, so we had a bottle of German wine from the Mosel region where my husband was stationed 25 years ago.

Our food was wonderful, the staff was so accommodating and the bill was very reasonable. We would highly suggest making the trek to The Oar House in Dahlonega! We will definitely be going back later in the Spring to sit outside and take in the picturesque view.

St Petersburg, Florida (FL) View On Map
I found this great little restaurant, O'Bistro while I was visiting the health food store, Nature's Finest Foods, next door. I always thought this place to be a strict sandwich restaurant and therefore passed it up until now. I popped in for a salad and while looking at the menu, I saw a "GF" and a "GFA" next to certain menu items. When I inquired about what it meant, "GF" stood for Gluten Free and "GFA" stood for Gluten Free Adaptable.

I ordered the All Natural Sirloin Steak and Brie Panini "GFA" which meant that it came without bread which was fine with me. The steak was richy and tasty with just enough brie to mix with the taste. My dad had the Ruben Non "GF" and he said it was exceptional so I assume it would be pretty good without the bread "GFA".

The food was very good and I would definitely eat here again. There are many options for the Gluten Free and Gluten Eating public alike. I am attaching a file of the menu for everyone to check out. There are some very original food selections.

Red Jacket Mountain View Resort
North Conway, New Hampshire (NH) View On Map
This hotel cant be beat if you are looking for family friendly and convenient in location. Josh, the head chef, took 15 minutes out of a busy saturday night to discuss all the gluten free options they had for our family. I am a doctor who deals with gluten intolerance and I have yet to see a hotel be more gluten friendly than this one is.

The water park is a perfect ad on to a day of skiing. Its no joke with lots to do. Probably the best indoor water park in the northeast. Skiing is 5 minutes away at Cranmore, which is also family friendly.

This was our first stay at this bed and breakfast and we cannot wait to go back. The place is immaculate, spacious, and inviting. The family and staff were wonderful! Our daughter has coeliac disease and the gluten free baked goods and breakfasts offered were fabulous. We all looked forward to getting back to the house after long days of skiing and couldn't wait to see the baked goods that were waiting for us! We can't wait to visit again!

At Journey's End Bed and Breakfast
Saint Augustine, Florida (FL) View On Map
Tim and John genuinely want their guests to have a good time in St. Augustine and go out of their way to make everything go well. The B&B is extremely well run, the breakfasts delicious, the advice relevant and accurate. I have coeliac disease and Tim made sure I had gluten-free breakfasts and even baked fabulous gluten-free cookies for me. The location is perfect. We only used our car once in a three-day stay, and otherwise could easily walk to everything.

Food For Thought
Williamsburg, Virginia (VA) View On Map
A wonderful place to eat. I found the atmosphere very pleasant. It almost had a coffee shop feel to it, like we could have stayed there all night. A great place for family dinners, friendly get togethers, and an all around good time. The service was outstanding. The timing of the food was perfect not too quickly where I felt I was rushed, but not too slow where I looking for it. They have a decent wine and drink list. Being a coeliac, I really enjoyed their gluten free menu. While obviously not as expansive as the regular menu, it was still quite big. I cannot even remmeber what my wife ate, because my ribs were soo good. They were perfectly cooked, almost falling off the bone. Would go back everytime in Williamsburg for sure!!!!!

Second St
Williamsburg, Virginia (VA) View On Map
This is how impressed I was with the Second St staff. I gave this restaurant great reviews, and our dinner was almost a complete disaster. I'll explain. The power kept going out b/c of a blown transformer down the block. They had a back up generator, but it still effected the kitchen equipment. The managar and our server continuously updated us on our meal. Even after the addtional wait, not too much, b/c honestly we didn't notice unless they came over. Once our food came out, it was perfect temp and tasted fantasitc. I have a gluten allergy and they have a decent sized dinner and lunch menu. My meal was great. I had the gluten free Crab Cakes, which are a slightly modification from the regular crab cake dish. They were an A+. Also, the cornbread skillet smelled ridiculous. I could not eat, but my wife raved. Would go back in a heart beat.

Manhattan, New York City (NYC) View On Map
Located within walking distance of Broadway, Nizza NYC is a great pre- or post-show restaurant. Nizza's food is inspired by both French and Italian cuisine and offers lunch, weekend brunch, and dinner menus. Nizza is a member of GFRAP so the entire staff of Nizza NYC is well-versed in gluten-free dining. As soon as you mention you are gluten-free, you will be given a gluten-free menu and delicious gluten-free breadsticks with your own dipping oil. The signature dish at Nizza NYC is socca, a crispy, naturally gluten-free, chickpea pancake cooked in a brick oven. It is the cross between a really thick pancake and a pizza and is delicious. Nizza NYC also offers La Veneziane corn pasta for their pasta dishes. Ask about the gluten-free desserts which tend to rotate on the menu.

Greenwich Village, New York City (NYC) View On Map
GustOrganics is the first and only certified organic restaurant in New York and America's first restaurant to use 100% USDA certified organic ingredients. GustOrganics holds a very dear place in my heart. In early 2009, I read a random article that mentioned this restaurant had a gluten-free 'hempanada' (This was a play on the classic empanada but made with gluten-free hemp flour.) I contacted the restaurant and was immediately inspired by their owner, Alberto Gonzales. He was so passionate about his organic restaurant and was eager to learn more about catering to his gluten-free clients. Over a couple of months, I worked with Alberto on perfecting his gluten-free menu. By February 2009, GustOrganics had easily integrated a gluten-free menu with their already amazing organic menu. Soon after, GustOrganics joined the GFRAP program and the rest is history. Tip: The GustOrganics organic cocktails are delicious!

Heartland Brewery Midtown West
Times Square, New York City (NYC) View On Map
Conveniently located at the Port Authority Bus Terminal and just steps from Times Square and Bryant Park, Heartland Brewery Midtown West is an awesome option for both commuters and tourists. In conjunction with GFRAP, Heartland Brewery-Midtown West launched their gluten-free menu in the summer of 2010. Nachos, chicken wings, BBQ shrimp, and mussels are just a few of the gluten-free options on this lively brewery's menu. The label clearly identifies all of the gluten-free items and the servers are happy to answer all of your questions. Currently, the Heartland Brewery Midtown West sells the gluten-free Bard's Tale Beer to accompany your lunch or dinner.

Tip: At this time only the Midtown West location of the Heartland Brewery offers the gluten-free menu. Don't get confused with the other six locations in Manhattan!

Soul Dog
Poughkeepsie, New York (NY) View On Map
Soul Dog has been in my dining repetoire for years. They always have the best music playing and the grown-ups can play Connect Four. When I was diagnosed with Coeliac, I went from casual diner to serious patron. Soul Dog is the go-to place for the gluten-free, because almost every menu item is gluten-free. They offer 20 toppings for their Hot Dogs, all on a tasty homemade Gluten Free bun. Yesterday, I ordered a Dog with guacamole, chipotle sour cream, Soul Sauce and a side of their killer Soul Fries. This is an eatery chock full of choices. Go there and bask in the comfort of Mac and Cheese, Fish & Chips, Pizza, Jalapeno Hush Puppies, Grilled Cheese, BLTs, Sloppy Joes, soup, salads and on and on.

If you're still with me and haven't already thrown your coat on and are out the door, it gets even better. So far, they are the only eatery that I have come across who serve baked goods. There is a serious lack of sweet endings for meals when you are gluten-free but here you will find fresh-made cupcakes, magic bars, chocolate chip cookies, and much more. Tiffany bakes many of the goodies and presented my g-free companion and I with something she calls "Cake Balls". If you've been missing chocolate chip cookie dough then this is the dessert for you.

I had the chance to speak with owners, Adam and Jenny and find out why they do what they do. Four out of five members in their household either have Coeliac disease or suffer from gluten intolerance. Therefore, they are sensitive to the needs of our community and they cook what they miss. According to Adam, Soul Dog is growing up and out in a big way. They sell their packaged bread, which is named "Food For All", to local stores and restaurants. Well, it's become so enormously popular that they are running out of room at Soul Dog to bake it and as a result are really close to mass production.

We had a wonderful 30th anniversary meal at Seasons 52. I have coeliac disease so I called ahead to ask if they could offer gluten free options. When we arrived, I was handed my own menu that clearly specified options. My husband ordered off the regular menu. The food, service, desserts and drinks were wonderful. Flavors fabulous. Healthy options. A great dinner.

Andy Nelson's BBQ
Baltimore, Maryland (MD) View On Map
Football is in the air. What goes better with football than food? Andy Nelson's BBQ is the place to get all your football eats. With a history in Baltimore football, Andy Nelson himself is an icon. Andy played for the Baltimore Colts in 1957 and when he was not playing football he was cooking BBQ. From a Gluten Free perspective there is no other place in Baltimore to get BBQ.

Most of Andy's menu is Gluten Free, except for the cornbread and sandwich rolls. Chicken, beef, and pork, they have it all and it is all good. In addition to their meats, their side dishes are also Gluten Free. Nothing goes better with BBQ than coleslaw and theirs is amazing. The potato wedges are baked not fried, so they can help you keep your New Year's resolution for one more week. Their sweet tea is the perfect drink to wash it all down. Andy Nelson's offers a dine-in restaurant experience, as well as, bulk orders and catering. For football fans the atmosphere of the restaurant is part of the experience. Football memorabilia lines the walls and Andy Nelson himself could end up bringing you your food. Bring on the playoff season and the BBQ, Andy Nelson's is the place to go.

Brown Palace Hotel
Denver, Colorado (CO) View On Map
My husband and I were married at the Brown 4 years ago and go back every year to celebrate our anniversary. The Palace Arms is by far the most luxurious and high class restaurant in Denver. When we are not willing to spend the money for the Palace Arms we have high tea. I have a gluten allergy and they always freshly prepare gluten free scones and finger sandwiches for me. I could not recommend this hotel enough for staying, dining, or using the spa. You will always get the most upscale service and accommodations!

We had our 'last night on Edisto' dinner here, having heard so many good things. Their people are superb, the host even recognizing my voice from a telephone conversation! Our server was extremely knowledgable, understanding my Gluten Free needs, making wine recommendations, and offering recipe suggestions. (Do note that they are only open for dinner, and do not answer the phone before 5:30 pm.) Really a very enjoyable evening.

Curly's Bar and Grill
Lackawanna, New York (NY) View On Map
I recently heard about Curly's as a great restaurant to visit, but they also had a lot of gluten free options on their menu. Not only did their menu choices blow me away, it was some of the best pizza and pasta I have ever had. Mary was our server and she was such a delight - more than willing to share stories with us about Curly's history, and she just added to the atmosphere, lighting, music and food that was already creating a wonderful dining experience. The gluten free, fresh baked, chocolate chip cookies were heavenly! We will definately return.

I made this reservation based on Cheryl, the owner's, exceptional telephone personality. When booking I noted my wifes dietary requirements.Upon arrival we entered the gluten free capital of MD. Cheryl went out of her way to provide excellent home made goodies, all safe to eat. No one would go wrong at this clean, tidy, loving establishment. Enjoy it when you can, just make sure you tell Cheryl you are GF when booking!

Rosa Mexicano
Miami, Florida (FL) View On Map
What a great Mexican restaurant this was -- probably one of the best I have ever tried. Our concierge at the Hotel suggested this little place to us. We found the ambiance to be upscale and very inviting. To start we ordered the Guacomole en Molcajete which is a guacomole prepared tableside (seriously a cool experience) and served with gluten free tortilla chips and small, round, warm corn tortillas (also GF). We all loved this appetizer! It was sooo delicious and it was made to our taste in terms of spiciness. We also ordered chicken tacos and they too were delicious. We shared an order of tacos between two people and we found it to be more than enough food. Also the tacos are served in those small, soft gluten free warm corn tortillas which were served with the guacomole. It was definitely more authentic than any taco I have ever had and delicious too. Hopefully, I will find another Rosa Mexicano some day, so I can revisit the experience.

Flatbread Co
Paia, Maui, Hawaii (HI) View On Map
We found this Pizza place in Paia, a cute little hippie town at the beginning of the road to Hana. This little pizza joint has its own wood/brick oven. You can watch them make your pizza from beginning to end. They also happen to offer an excellent gluten free pizza crust. All of their meats and vegetables are as local or organic as possible. Their meats are nitrate free as possible. I think I ordered a pepperoni, mushroom and pineapple pizza. I loved the crust but I have to say I am not a big fan of nitrate free pepperoni, it just doesn't have the zing which I like. Go figure I like the taste of unhealthy meat better? Anyways, I loved the concept of this place. They even have a list of all the farms from which they source each pizza topping. So cool to see!
