Friedman's Lunch
Chelsea Market, New York City (NYC) View On Map
We arranged to meet our friends and their small baby at Friedman's Lunch since they offer lots of lighter gluten free options such as sandwiches and salads and are conveniently located to the High Line which we walked afterwards (highly recommended). Despite the name, Friedman's Lunch offer breakfast, lunch and dinner. Chelsea Market reminds me of a slightly sanitised version on Brixton Village; small, independent restaurants offering good value food in a converted former warehouse. Next door to Friedman's is a health food store with many naturally gluten free options (fruit, veg, cheese etc) but strangely we didn't find any specifically gluten free items there.

Friedman's operate a no reservations policy and we had to wait around 40 minutes for a table, although not entirely the restaurant's fault. A table had become available before our friends arrived and their policy is to only seat complete parties so we had to wait around 20 minutes for the second table. Since I was in New York I chose the grilled pastrami Reuben sandwich. This sandwich came served with sauerkraut, Gruyere cheese and Russian dressing, and a very generous portion of pastrami, all on toasted gluten free bread. I was impressed that almost all items on the menu could be gluten free. The waiter explained they also have a separate fryer so if I wanted to have the herbed fries, these would be safely gluten free. Who am I to refuse chips on a cold day?!

Unsurprisingly I loved the tangy Russian dressing. Since N and I met when we sat next to each other at work in Moscow, it seemed quite an appropriate choice. We enjoyed many great meals while we were in New York but I think the food here might've been my favourite. I liked the relaxed atmosphere, friendly service and the excellent quality and range of gluten free food on offer.

Tu-Lu's Bakery
East Village, New York City (NYC) View On Map
I have heard about this bakery for years in the gluten-free community. Founded by Tully Phillips (diagnosed with gluten-intolerance 2008) and business partner Jennifer Wells (diagnosed with celiac in 2009) this cozy 100% dedicated gluten-free bakery has a gorgeous selection of cupcakes, donuts, muffins, cookies & cookie dough balls, paninis and more. The boys ordered a cupcake each, and I ordered a 12-pack variety of mini-cupcakes with assorted fillings, because I just couldn't decide on one larger one, and enjoyed nibbling while walking along the street. The vanilla butter cream icing was the BEST.

Madison Square Park, New York City (NYC) View On Map
After a stroll through Central Park, it was time for an early dinner and the boys were asking for pizza. I noted that Mozzarelli's served gfree pizza, so we hopped in a cab. When we arrived to Mozzarelli's the aroma of garlic and basil greeted us. This eatery, owned by 2 brothers, is small, casual, clean, and serves a variety of (award-winning!) gluten-free pizza, and by the slice no less, which is RARE. The staff preparing the pizza assured me they do everything to avoid cross-contamination and given the option of variety (yay), I chose two different slices and both were DE-licious! The crusts were crisp and fluffy, and the ingredients fresh. Mozzarelli's also offers salads & gluten-free pasta dishes (ziti, penne vodka, basil pesto, penne alfredo, penne goat cheese primavera), a few gluten-free desserts (including Teramisu), and a large variety of gluten-filled pasta dishes, specialty sandwiches, etc. There are also gluten-free cookies and a few other gluten-free packaged items for purchase.

Nobu 57
Uptown, New York City (NYC) View On Map
I was fortunate to dine at Nobu 57, in NYC. If I had to summarize the experience into one word, it'd be WOAH!! Expensive, oh yeah (but, what isn't in New York?)!! Worth it? Read on! Most importantly, the staff is fantastic, and extremely knowledgeable about what items are gluten free. When I asked if Nobu was accommodating, if I'd have options to choose from, whether or not the server knew those options, cross contamination issues, etc., I was met with an of course face - best face ever!! Nothing eases this Celiac like knowing my body is in good hands and I wont be sick thereafter.

I read some reviews and saw from fellow Celiac's that the Chocolate Bento Box was gluten free. It's a dark chocolate coulant and sesame crisp. Best way to describe this? INCREDIBLE!! The delicious chocolate brownie like dessert below has chocolate flowing on the inside as well. What an incredible way to start a meal!! Next up, Nobu Combination Lunch, I chose the chicken meal, and it comes with miso soup, salad and rice, as well as sushi. I haven't had miso soup in some time, most make it with soy sauce, but, Nobu, oh no! It's gluten free!!

Last up, chicken, rice, and bean sprouts. I'm a huge bean sprouts fan. These were cooked differently, still crunchy, but, also really tasty - a vinegar taste, that went perfectly with the chicken. And the chicken, so moist, and simple, yet so tasty. Was this meal costly? Yes! Felt akin to a rent payment!! Worth it?! YES! Worth every penny, especially for Celiacs. You have an extremely knowledgeable staff, amazing food (and dessert!!), and a gorgeous atmosphere.

Colicchio & Sons
Chelsea Market, New York City (NYC) View On Map
All I can say is wow! They were well-versed in gluten-free and totally got how careful I needed to be. They put me 100% at ease and it was by far one of the best meals I've ever had.

Grilled octopus for an appetizer and a halibut entree that I'm still drooling over. Plus, they brought me out my own gluten-free bread and a gluten-free dessert without even ordering one. A great night all around and a special shout-out to the bartender Bennett for his martinis and to our server Lorraine, who went above and beyond the call of duty for me. It's the first time I ever hugged my server after a meal. Maybe Bennett's martinis had something to do with that.

Friedman's Lunch
Chelsea Market, New York City (NYC) View On Map
I reached out to a friend for any advice and she came back with a suggestion of Friedman's Lunch, located in Chelsea Market. She said the owner's wife had celiac disease so he knows his stuff. The menu was a celiac's dream. Almost every item could be made gluten-free. I went with the pancakes. I wasn't disappointed. At all.

East Village, New York City (NYC) View On Map
Last week I checked out a L'Asso, an Italian restaurant in the East Village that can prepare every pizza on its menu gluten free. We went on a weeknight at 7ish and had no problem snagging a table for three. We sat towards the back with a great view of the large, open kitchen and had attentive and friendly service.

The gluten free pizza only comes in one size, so I knew I was on my own in choosing the flavor. Ultimately I opted for the Tartufo pizza, served with portobello mushrooms, pesto, choice of smoked or regular mozzarella, rosemary, truffle oil. I went for the regular mozzarella option and was quite pleasantly surprised by the pizza when it was brought out - it was huge! There were about 8 slices in the gluten free size so it is definitely enough to split with another two or three people depending on your appetites. The pizza, like so many other gluten free options, is a thin and crunchy crust. Overall I enjoyed L'Asso's pizza and the restaurant feel.

Park Slope, New York City (NYC) View On Map
One of my favorite Italian restaurants in Park Slope, Brooklyn is Fornino. They offer an assortment of gluten free pastas and pizzas. The pasta they use is made out of corn flour and the pizza dough they use is made out of brown rice flour. I've tried both the pasta and pizza and they are excellent! As far as the pasta, I've had the penne pesto primavera and as for pizza, I've had the margherita classica pizza.

Park Slope, New York City (NYC) View On Map
Being on a gluten free diet, I don't often have the option of running into a cafe and picking up breakfast on my way to work or school. However, Naidre's located on Park Slope's bustling 7th Avenue between 11th and 12th streets has Everybody Eats' gluten free rolls readily available. I've had these rolls toasted in the morning with cream cheese and have been to Naidre's for lunch and enjoyed their Turkey and Cheddar sandwich on a gluten free roll and their grilled cheese on a gluten free roll. Naidre's offers an assortment of gluten free options, as well as, vegetarian and vegan choices. They also usually have some sort of gluten free bakery item such as a macaroon or cookie

Bogota Latin Bistro
Brooklyn, New York City (NYC) View On Map
Bogota Latin Bistro in Park Slope, Brooklyn is a Colombian and Pan-Latin restaurant. The restaurant has gluten free, vegetarian and vegan options clearly marked on their menus. They also have two dedicated gluten free fryers. Bogota Latin Bistro offers an extremely large variety of gluten free options for brunch, lunch and dinner. For brunch, you can even get gluten free pancakes with powdered sugar, fruit and maple syrup! So far, I've tried the plantain chips (which are on the table if you dine at the restaurant), the blue and yellow corn tortilla chips with guacamole and pico de gallo garnish, the white arepa, and the tortilla soup. The tortilla soup is a chicken soup with a spicy chipotle broth, tortilla strips, avocado, sour cream, jack cheese and cilantro. If you order this item for delivery, they pack each of these items in separate containers so that the ingredients in the soup are not soggy by the time they arrive.
