    Amazing gluten free options! I had the buttermilk fried chicken sandwich with rosemary fries, something which I would never dream of being able to have anywhere else. The food was outstanding, best gluten free meal since being diagnosed coeliac 3 years ago!

    Decent restaurant w/very good gluten free menu and cross-contamination procedures. Came here for brunch with several people and the food was fine - I ordered the salmon benedict, which I liked a lot. Husband got one of the specials for the day (duck hash, I think) and thought it was just ok. We also ordered gluten free pastrami sandwiches to go and they were not great. The pastrami was tough and gristly and parts of it were inedible. The staff was friendly and was very up on gluten free/celiac and avoiding cross-contamination. I'd definitely go back - hope the bad pastrami was a fluke and not what they usually serve!

    Awesome. Delicious. Menu with GF options. Knowledgable about Celiac, and they take the appropriate precautions.

    Can't arrive 20 minutes prior to brunch ending... Food may be good, but bad service will ruin an experience EVERY TIME!

    this place is amazing- went to their new location on 31st & 6th for dinner, twice. Everything I've and my guest have had has been great. I usually get the buccatelli with mushrooms and add grilled chicken. I also get herbed fries as a nice appetizer to snack on. Guests have gotten the tomato soup and fish tacos. The beer is great as well.

    went there and had pastrami Reuben it was amazing. a little on the pricey side for a sandwich that comes with no sides but it was probably the best Reuben I ever had and it was like 3 inches thick. I thought it was well worth it

    I'm so sad to give this place a bad review but it has to be done. First time I went there I enjoyed my overpriced meal and decided to give it another go. Today I had a turkey sandwich and asked for a gf roll. Halfway through I realized that there was something wrong. It didn't taste, look, feel or act like gf bread. I know UDI's makes amazing gf bread but this wasn't it. I asked the server if it was absolutely gf bread and he replied "yes, it's on a rectangle plate". I guess that's how the servers differentiate. But I wasn't convinced. I wish I had asked him to bring it back to make sure bc now I'm home sick and miserable.

    went here for brunch, food was great. after telling the waiter i was celiac, i selected a gf beer (randomly) eager to try any. he politely told me that the beer i had selected was distilled to be gf, not naturally gf, and recommended a sorghum/rice blend instead. i was surprised, but thankful to know the staff was so educated. the energy is good too, but expect to wait a while on a crowded day in chelsea market.

    Best GF sandwich I have ever had (Apple Taragon Chicken Salad). Great selection of items that can be prepared GF (indicated on the menu with a dot). Fries were delicious and cooked in a dedicated fryer if you ask for GF fries. GF beers too. Make sure you tell wait staff you need items prepared gluten free. Server seemed very knowledgeable.

    Overpriced but offer an unrivaled GF weekend brunch. First come early to contend with limited seating, obnoxious staff & quick lunch kitchen turnover.

    They have a Gf burger bun that was so good I was truly scared I got the wrong bun. The also have gf fries. The delivery area is quite large. I can have a safe and delicious meal delivered to my office in the west village. The burger was so juicy and perfectly cooked. I was honestly blown away by how good the food was, especially for delivery. It's pricy but totally worth it.

    The first place I had a GF burger and realized I could still eat food as good as a normal person. Pricey, but worth it.
