Below are all of the gluten free restaurants I’ve tried in New York City within the last year or so. You can click the restaurant name to be directed to their website and menus. I’ve tried to note what I’ve eaten at each place and what I like or dislike about each. Check back as we travel to NYC often and will be adding to this list regularly!
Bistango – two locations in Manhattan offering brunch, lunch, and dinner menus with all items available gluten free. This is a great option if you find yourself nearby, but I would advise calling in advance to make sure they have gluten free options available. When we dined here, they were unfortunately out of gluten free ravioli and it was the item I most wanted to try. There is a large variety of options and the gluten free flatbreads are very tasty.
By The Way Bakery – 100% gluten free, dairy free, and kosher pareve bakery with four locations in the NYC metro area. I’ve been to both the Upper West Side and Upper East Side locations. This is hands down my favorite place for gluten free treats in the city and I will go out of my way to grab a few pastries. We’ve tried several cupcake flavors, breakfast breads, and even our wedding cake was made here!
Etcetera Etcetera – Italian fine dining located in Hells Kitchen offering a wide variety of options for both lunch and dinner. Many of the salads and entrees are gluten free and there are three gluten free pasta dishes. I’ve had the ravioli and it was just mediocre, but a great ambiance and a great option in a pinch.
The Milling Room – a beautiful fine dining restaurant and bar on the Upper West Side that serves seasonal American fare and often has several gluten free entree options and their panna cotta should not be missed! Be sure to check their menu in advance and call with any questions regarding gluten.
Nizza – Italian fine dining located just outside of Times Square with a dedicated gluten free menu. This is hands down my favorite gluten free restaurant anywhere. The service is excellent and the food amazing. We love the pizzas, the gnocchi, and the ricotta cheesecake. We’ve tried several other items and it seems you can’t go wrong. If you are in NYC, you must try Nizza (gluten free or not).
sweetgreen – amazing salad bar with fresh, seasonal, healthy, and ethically sourced menu options located throughout the city (and other cities, too). Their website denotes gluten free items and you can also sort by other dietary preferences. The winter harvest bowl is one of the most incredible salads I’ve ever eaten.
Tali Restaurant – Sadly, it was reported that this restaurant has permanently closed. 100% gluten free casual dining in Flatiron that offers a variety of pizzas, pastas, sandwiches, and salads. We had a late dinner here and enjoyed the beets and baby spinach salad and Margherita pizza. We were way too stuffed to try to dessert, but we will be back for sure.
tap NYC – 100% gluten free casual dining on the Upper West Side with a fantastic selection of crepes, breads, salads, coffee, and tea. I have eaten here a few times for breakfast and brunch and have never been disappointed.
