    Found this place with this app. Went for breakfast after the Luke Bryan concert. I got the blueberry pancakes. I was very excited to try them. You get 3 big, fluffy pancakes. They were not like hockey pucks. Even though I was full I ate them all because they were so good. I would definitely eat there again. I did not have a reaction.

    What an amazing experience! Knowledgeable staff and delicious food! So much to choose from....Appetizers, entrees and dessert! We had veggie potstickers (gone in seconds) burgers with fries (bacon cheeseburger was best thing ever according to one of our kids), steak, mac and cheese (amazing) and brownie sundae and apple crisp (yum)! This was one happy gluten free (celiac) family!

    So many delicious GF breakfast options. We had a breakfast sandwich, wrap and potato hash---all gluten free and labeled as such when they came out of the kitchen to ease any worries. They were super tasty! My one compliant is that the coffee was awful, both the drop coffee and americano we ordered were very bitter.

    Great place. Very friendly and helpful to our family while visiting NYC. Restaurant was very busy for Sunday brunch but they still took time to care for our GF needs and make certain we were happy. Chicken and waffles is fabulous must have for Celiac. Where else can you get fried chicken and waffles that taste awesome?

    Hoped for the best, but....tried takeout. When we got the order home, we had received the wrong foods (we had paid more for lamb, got ground beef), didn't get the aioli sauce that was supposed to come with sweet potato fries, etc. as a result, we were afraid to eat anything because we couldn't tell if the buns or Mac and cheese were gluten free-$70 for a meal we were too nervous to eat! Won't be back!

    I've heard good things through social media about friedmans .. Had an awesome lunch there today. The servers were knowledgable and almost care free about it because they are accustomed to celiacs coming in which made me more comfortable if that makes sense. I ordered the burger with sweet potato fries (all fryers are gf) and when my order came out there was a little gluten free sign in the burger. This makes me feel very safe eating my food! Food was delicious and I will most definitely be back for more!

    Food either comes out on a different sized/shaped plate or with a toothpick flag in it. Breakfast, lunch & dinner -- I've tried many things. All delicious. They don't take reservations so be prepared to wait. Fried chicken & waffles for celiacs? ✔️😁

    Super good GF sandwiches with homemade chips! Nearly everything on the menu can be made gluten free and gluten free foods are served with a pick that clearly says gluten free on it and our waiter also asked if we needed to be dairy free. Although I don't need to eat dairy free, it seems they can accommodate that as well. Knowledgeable staff and celiac safe haven. Yum!

    Amazing food! We met with friends for brunch. They come here often for the food but not the GF food. Everything on the menu (pretty much) can be made GF. I had the fried chicken and cheddar waffle. It was AMAZING. I ate it slowly to savor the flavor. I haven't had a waffle in 7 years that wasn't a frozen Van's. The waitress was great and there no cross contamination issues. We will definitely be coming back here.

    This place is so amazing. From the atmosphere to the attentive staff, we had a great visit. Our waiter was so helpful, knew every ingredient in the dishes, and was able to make knowledgable suggestions regarding modifications. Also loved that everything can be made GF, but also has non-GF options. Perfect for mixed GF/non-GF families. Exclusive fryer and kitchen space for GF prep. Definitely a must try in NYC!!

    Awesome find. Pride themselves on gluten free, most of the items on the menu are. Square plates for GF food, but ran out so they have little flags that say gluten free. My food was great, had the pastrami hash with a small fruit cup- best fruit cup I've ever had, not the standard boring fruit- had pomegranate, blood orange, orange and grapefruit. Will be back again when I am back in the city!

    I'm not GF but this is a great place. Everything except for a couple items can be GF. Served on a square plate instead of round, gluten, plate. They even flag it with a GF toothpick. The wife had fried chicken and waffles and a beer for the first time in years. Her dish ended up tasting better than mine.

    Finding a Gluten Free friendly restaurant is very difficult, especially one you can trust and properly manage cross contamination. Too often we go thru the paces of meeting with the head chef or manager, only to have a cross contamination mistake erode any trust.After some research on FindMeGlutenFree, I came across “Friedman’s” in New York City. In a word, FINALLY! We walked into the 31st location just before dinner time with great anticipation. It’s been quite some time since we’ve been able to eat at a restaurant comfortably. Shawn, Friedman’s Director of Operations, happen to be at the door when we arrived and seated us. He was very patient and listened to our story of recent woes. Then he spent a generous amount of time, talking directly to my daughter, answering her questions, calming her fears/concerns, and depicted the detailed efforts he and his staff focus on to make their Gluten Free customers safe, both in and out of the kitchen.The food was excellent, Ethan, our server was very attentive and continued to ease our concerns through dinner, and at the end I had a very happy daughter…and a great meal.Turns out the owner's daughter has Celiac and was the impetus for this Gluten Free haven.I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
