NYC Gluten Free Restaurants

Below is a list of NYC restaurants/bakeries that I highly recommend visiting. Of course there are many more in this great city, but these are the ones I will always go back to again and again. I’ve also included my recommendation of dishes to try while you’re there!

Several of these restaurants are 100% gluten free. Several are NOT 100% gluten free but are very careful with cross contamination and take celiac disease extremely seriously. 

(Disclaimer: All opinions are my own. I only recommend restaurants and bakeries that I love. However, I am not a doctor and cannot be held responsible for any food related reactions you may have.
