Citifield Stadium
Queens, New York City (NYC) View On Map
In some last minute Friday night planning my friend invited me to a Mets game. I hadn't been out to the new Citifield Stadium and, having no pressing Friday night plans, thought it would be a fun way to spend a Friday night. An added perk, of course, is that Citifield has a gluten free stand that I would be able to check out and report back about.

The stand is a bit out of the way - I believe it was behind section 126 but don't take my word for it; instead, make sure you ask an employee. It is by The Marketplace, so you can also ask employees where that is if you need help searching this out.

Anyway, we went for the gluten free burgers with cheese and we were both very satisfied with our purchase. The stand also sells Kozy Shack pudding, Redbridge beer, brownies, sausages, and hot dogs. The burger cost somewhere around $7.50 which, in my opinion, isn't that bad for a gluten free burger at a ball park. At events like this I'm used to overpriced food and, coming from Manhattan, $7.50 for a burger is a steal.

Even better, however, is that the burger was good! The bun didn't fall apart and crumble as so many gluten free buns are prone to doing; instead it remained composed as we devoured our dinners. The game was really fun despite the Mets losing to the Cincinnati Reds. Who doesn't love a baseball game on a beautiful summer night, right?

Spring Natural Kitchen
Upper West Side, New York City (NYC) View On Map
I've been wanting to check out Spring Natural Kitchen for a few months now and finally had the opportunity the other night. While I had walked by the restaurant before I didn't take into account how large it was; the restaurant is spacious and sizeable, not what I normally expect from a restaurant in New York City. I was famished when we went so made sure to order a lot. It wasn't a difficult task because the menu is marked with a (gf) for everything that is or can be prepared gluten free. We split an order of the Seafood Risotto, the Yellowfin Tuna Tartare, and a salad (which one I am now forgetting). It's been a few weeks since I visited so the details are a bit hazy but I can say definitively that Spring Natural Kitchen is amazing. We loved all of the food, the atmosphere, and the helpful waitstaff.

Pip's Place
Upper East Side, New York City (NYC) View On Map
The other day my friend Alison sent me an e-mail about the opening of Pip's Place on New York's Upper East Side. As I walked up to Pip's Place I was struck by the neighborhood it is in; there are a lot of coffee shops and restaurants nearby. I'm very infrequently that far up in Manhattan and, when I am, seem to be on the west side more often than the east. Anyway, I walked into Pip's place and was instantly greeted by employees behind the counter. The shop also immediately greeted my eyes with visions of beautifully presented gluten free treats with everything from cupcakes to the bakery's own "Heath bars." I went a little wild and ordered a brownie, a chocolate chip cookie, and a Heath bar... but hey, I was doing a half marathon the next day so I deserved it, right?

I sat down with my treats at the small bar/counter that is opposite the cashier and dug right in. My first stop was the chocolate chip cookie. I normally wouldn't order a chocolate chip cookie as I think it is a bit boring, but I decided to go for it to have a wide sampling of Pip's baking. The chocolate chip cookie was soft and tasted as if it had just come out of the oven. It was definitely better than a lot of other gluten free chocolate cookies I have had which are often too crunchy and end up tasting stale. My next treat was the "Heath bar," a layered bar with mashed up Heath bar on top. This was amazingly delicious; as a huge fan of Heath Bar candy I loved how Pip's replicated the flavor of the Heath Bar while amping it up with a creamy chocolate underneath the crunchy top.

When I arrived home I tore into the fudgey brownie alongside a glass of Trader Joe's almond milk. The brownie was delicious, filled with great flavor and it was perfectly chewy. Just as importantly, it didn't crumble upon first bite as so many gluten free baked goods do. I loved all of the treats I picked up from Pip's and will definitely be visting again to try out some new snacks. The location is small but offers an open kitchen so you can see exactly what is being baked. I have my eyes on the Chocolate Cake for my next visit..

Manhattan, New York City (NYC) View On Map
I learned about Pappardella on twitter a few weeks ago and have been excited to try it ever since (see, twitter can serve a purpose). I've been meaning to eat healthier recently, but tonight I accidentally ate gluten free garlic bread, gluten free bruschetta with a fava bean spread, gluten free pasta bolognese, and flourless chocolate cake with hazelnut gelato and caramel sauce. Oh, and my brother had the gluten free salmon dish and I tried some of that too. Oops! Don't worry, we shared it all but the pasta.

But here's the thing, with all their gluten free options, I had a hard time deciding. The gluten free menu was huge and covered everything from appetizers and salads, to pizza and pasta, to meat and fish, to dessert. They use Schar for their pasta, and I'm pretty sure their bread as well. The gluten free substitutes were pretty good, but next time I would be interested in trying one of their naturally gluten free dishes such as their grilled rack of grass fed Austrailian lamb with caramelized cipollini onions, and creamy parmesan polenta, or the grilled NY strip steak served with a port wine reduction and garlic mashed potatoes. And after that I'd like to try their pizza.

Pala Pizza
Bowery, New York City (NYC) View On Map
I recently had the opportunity to dine here. I was the first in our party to arrive and was immediately welcomed by the maitre'd who offered me a seat at the bar while I awaited my company. While we waited for the last of our group to arrive we took our seats and peered over the extensive gluten free menu. Once she arrived we dove in to ordering and were assured by our waiter that we were not going overboard in our ordering.

We decided to start with the Arancini, a plate of fried risotto balls filled with spinach and mozzarella cheese and made it in a dedicated gluten free fryer. It's rare that I stumble across a gluten free fryer so I knew I had to order up something that was fried to take full advantage of the opportunity. For our entrees we ordered a smorgasbord of food. For pasta we ordered the Tonnarelli, prepared with fusilli pasta, porcini mushrooms, parmigiano cheese, parsley and rosemary. For our pizza selection we ordered a Bufala Cruda, made with buffalo mozzarella, cherry tomato sauce; a Fungata, prepared with porcini, portebello and shitake mushrooms, and assorted cheeses; and finally a Spinaci topped with spinach, ricotta, cherry tomato sauce, mozzarella, and garlic.

Not too shabby of an order, eh? Needless to say, we did quite a number on the pizzas and pasta leaving barely any to take home. I think the best part of my meal was hearing each of the girls say that they couldn't differentiate the gluten free pizza from gluten-filled pizzas they had eaten in the past. The crust was delicious, flavorful, and unlike many of the overly crunchy and thin gluten free pizzas that I often encounter.

I loved everything about Pala, from the superb waitstaff, delicious food, and unique options available to gluten free eaters; perhaps best of all was the wonderful company. I can't wait to go back to Pala and explore the enormous gluten free menu... I already have my eye on a few options for my next visit! Do you love it or do you love it?

Scottadito Osteria Toscana
Brooklyn, New York City (NYC) View On Map
Recently, I got to try out Scottadito Osteria Toscana, an Italian restaurant in Park Slope, Brooklyn. They offer gluten free pasta and include pasta entrees on their brunch, lunch, and dinner menus. I went for brunch and had a delicious gluten free penne pasta with melted brie, arugula, and truffle oil.

Ruby Foo's
Times Square, New York City (NYC) View On Map
Tonight we decided to try Ruby Foo's in Times Square. I heard of Ruby Foo's awhile ago but hadn't tried it yet for two main reasons: 1) it's pretty expensive, and 2) I hate Times Square. Anyone that lives in New York avoids Times Square at all costs. Full of tourists walking really slowly, there is pretty much nothing a person living in New York needs to do there. But, wanting to try somewhere new, my brother and I decided to give it a try. The gluten free menu has three appetizers, three entrees, three sides, and two desserts. We shared the Chicken Lettuce Wrap for an appetizer and I got the Mongolian Orange Chicken for my main dish. They were both fine. I wouldn't recommend Ruby Foo's for people living in NYC, but it is a good option for people visiting the city that may be in Times Square anyway.

West Village, New York City (NYC) View On Map
Risotteria is one of the most well known restaurants in New York City for gluten free food. The menu includes several appetizers, salads, pizzas, paninis, desserts, and of course, many risotto options. The vast majority of the menu is gluten free. Menu items are noted if they are gluten free, dairy free, and/or vegetarian. Everyone starts off with gluten free breadsticks, whether they are gluten free or not. The staff is very knowledgeable on food allergies and I've always felt very comfortable eating here.

I've been to Risotteria numerous times and have tried a little bit of everything off the menu. I've never had anything I didn't like. This is a great place to order a few different dishes and share with your companions. If you can, leave room for their gluten free éclairs! With a no reservation policy and only 20 seats in the restaurant, I suggest arriving early and with only a few friends.

From their gluten free breadsticks, to their risotto, to their many desserts, Risotteria shouldn't be missed by anyone in, or visiting, New York City.

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.

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.
