This is my new favorite restaurant in NYC! Bistango was the high of me and my boyfriend's weekend. I am gluten free and dairy free and the restaurant was already accommodated to them both. Scott, our waiter, was excellent! He provided us with recommendations that were phenomenal. I cannot preach about this place more!
Glutened, most likely because of a common cooking surface or utensil. Even though we were paranoid and made sure they understood celiac disease was more than just an upset tummy and that common utensils are enough to contaminate.
I totally understand that in any kitchen where there's gluten, cross contamination can happen – but as a business that labels itself as being totally understanding to people with celiac disease and gluten intolerance, this was a huge disappointment. The facts that their floors haven't been mopped in probably years, and that the menu was a confusing mess – should have been big red flags, but we wanted to give them a chance.
We used to go in to Papa's quite a bit, but due to his location and our work schedule it hasn't been possible for a while. Well we finally got over there and so glad we did. New Menu was excellent to be able to tell what was okay or could be done gluten free. If it doesn't have Bread, Wrap or Roux it's probably good to go! We had the chicken po boy over rice, red beans and rice, coleslaw and applesauce. Yumm!!!! Thanks Papa and Mama for training your staff. They actually asked when we ordered Gluten Free: "Is this a preference or allergy". We said allergy and they said we ask because the allergy requires special handling, changing gloves, getting items from another area, etc. Wow thank YOU!!!!!
Amazing food, atmosphere, and staff at all of their locations. Their gluten free menu is extensive. Their queso is delicious and I've had almost all of the gluten free tacos and I havent been disappointed! My two favorites are the one with the mushroom, and the one with the barbacoa.
Just so you know, the one with the mushroom, and the one with the avocado, have the mushroom and avocado covered in cornmeal. It freaked me out when I got it, but then saw it was just cornmeal so it's safe to eat, and it was nice to have some change like that!

This is a nicer burger joint than your typical fast food place. Its pretty much on the same level as a Smashburger. You can get the burgers lettuce wrapped, so that is a nice convenience. I enjoyed this place and will definitely be back.
Zio's has an extensive gluten free menu. When I asked my server about some things, like if the gelato was gluten free, he tried to go get the answer and someone told him that it wasn't, but he wasn't too sure of the answer. It was plain chocolate gelato, with no cookies, so it was fine. my point is that I do agree with another reviewer's comment about the staff not being able to answer questions. However, the sheer size of their menu is good enough for me. You will not be limited to a salad or burger with no bun here!
No GF marked options, but all curries are safe. Love that they have brown rice that can be swapped for white rice and that their lunch special allows me to have a curry, rice, and tom yum soup (also safe) for around $7.

Whenever I'm in the JAX area a stop at Tommy's is a must-do. Love that they feature "Tommy's tomato pie" that naturally comes without cheese (as I am dairy-free as well) and that care is taken to ensure that the pizzas really are gluten-free. The crusts come from Still Riding Pizza Co. and are big enough to feed 1-2 people easily.

First time I have had Chinese food at a restaurant since I was diagnosed almost 5 years ago. So nice to be able to safely have Chinese food! I am a super sensitive celiac and I did not get sick. Cute diner-style atmosphere for low key dinners. :)
