About Me

GF diet since 2009


  • Stir Crazy

    5 starsJuly 25, 2015

    4422 Palisades Center Dr, West Nyack, NY 10994

    Final update: they are closing July 28th, 2015. GF sauces for the market bar (create your own stir fry). For the picky eaters you can make it exactly how you want. GF sauces are not at the bar, just ask for them. Update: the cook meticulously cleaned and sanitized wok and ladle before cooking. One of the only places where you can actually see how they are preparing your food.

  • Yum Yum Noodle Bar

    5 starsJune 29, 2015

    275 Fair Street, Kingston, NY 12401

    My absolute favorite stop between Upstate and Downstate NY. A warm bowl of yummy goodness. UPDATE: Between summer 2014 and 2015, ALL broths and proteins (except one) are now GF as they use GF soy sauce across the board.

  • O'Toole's Restaurant Pub

    5 starsJune 04, 2015

    118 Quaker Rd, Queensbury, NY 12804

    Great wings and extensive GF menu with dedicated fryer! One of the best GF Ruben sandwiches I've ever had.

  • The Burger Garage

    5 starsMay 16, 2015

    25-36 Jackson Ave, Queens, NY 11101

    Really tasty burgers. Very soft GF buns.

  • Yanni S Gyro Express Cafe

    4 starsApril 30, 2015

    28 Pleasant Street, Monticello, NY 12701

    Nice and inexpensive Greek restaurant. They can accommodate as most Mediterranean places can.

  • Don Antonio by Starita

    5 starsMarch 12, 2015

    309 West 50th Street, New York, NY 10019

    Did I just eat the best pizza ever? Possibly! I think the only way to be sure is to put this side by side with Pala and do a true taste test. Either way, this is by far the best GF pizza in midtown, possibly NYC and maybe the best in the world.

  • Restaurant Phayathai

    5 starsMarch 10, 2015

    1235 Rue Guy, Montreal, QC, Canada H3H 2K5

    Excellent food. Friendly service. It was well worth the 2km walk from the hotel.

  • Banzai

    4 starsFebruary 28, 2015

    95 South Central Avenue, Hartsdale, NY 10530

    If you bring your own soy sauce, they will cook the hibachi in the kitchen separately. Soup is GF (they don't put the fried onions in). Salad dressing and hamachi sauces are not. They are familiar with GF requests but I don't understand why they can't just get a bottle of San-j and save everyone the trouble.

  • Plum Tomatoes Pizzeria

    5 starsFebruary 01, 2015

    420 Beach 129th Street, Rockaway Park, NY 11694

    GF Pizza and Pasta. They were very accommodating and cooked a tasty grilled chicken parm dinner with side of GF spaghetti. The best part, is there were no additional charges for the preparation or pasta!

  • Mannino's Italian Kitchen & Lounge

    1 starsJanuary 17, 2015

    2158 Jericho Turnpike, Commack, NY 11725

    Terrible! GF pasta dish came with floured chicken. Service during the business lunch rush was beyond horrible.

  • Franco's Metro

    5 starsJanuary 17, 2015

    1475 Bergen Boulevard, Fort Lee, NJ 07024

    They don't have a GF menu but are happy to accommodate. Had grilled chicken parmigiana with GF penne, which was the best I've ever had. They brought out complimentary bruschetta for the table and a bowl of the topping for me.

  • Smashburger

    5 starsDecember 13, 2014

    New Hyde Park Rd, 1608 Marcus Avenue, New Hyde Park, NY 11040

    Just so good

  • Amore Pizzeria & Pasta

    5 starsDecember 04, 2014

    1 Kent Pl, Armonk, NY 10504

    Good Italian. Friendly service.

  • BGR The Burger Joint

    4 starsNovember 14, 2014

    20 South Moger Avenue, Mount Kisco, NY 10549

    Update 11/14/14 - This place has CLOSED. They have an Udis sign right on the front door. Order taker knowledgable of what sauces (mojo) are not GF and which fries are GF ( regular only).

  • 97 Lake Sports Cafe & Restaurant

    5 starsOctober 18, 2014

    97 Lake Street, White Plains, NY 10604

    Update: 10/18/14. They have closed. What a loss for the GF community. If you want to eat GF food that's really bad for you but tastes oh so good, this is the place to go! Tonight I has GF Caesar salad with croutons, chicken wings, onion rings and apple crumb pie. Their GF menu is crazy. Things you never thought you could eat again like fried shrimp, hoagies, onion rings, etc. Enjoy it all just don't go on the scale the next morning.

  • Eat Healthy Deli

    5 starsSeptember 15, 2014

    24 Little Falls Rd, Fairfield, NJ 07004

    It so refreshing to walk into a deli, order a sandwich, and walk out feeling totally normal. It's a little expensive of course, but well worth it. I'm so fortunate that one of our remote offices is 3 miles away so I can go here for lunch when visiting. One of the best GF cupcakes I've ever had too.

  • Glaze Teriyaki Grill

    5 starsSeptember 10, 2014

    638 Lexington Ave, New York, NY 10022

    Simple, quick and very tasty. Great work day gf lunch option.

  • Olympia Cafe

    5 starsAugust 28, 2014

    4208 Northlake Blvd, Palm Beach Gardens, FL 33410

    Most menu items are GF. Very tasty, not salty Family friendly.

  • Ba & Me

    5 starsJuly 11, 2014

    26 Upper Main Street, Callicoon, NY 12723

    Interesting little outdoor Vietnamese cafe. Only open midday Thurs. - Sun. Most items except the sandwiches are GF. I had a really tasty chicken rice bowl. All food is locally sourced and organic.

  • BareBurger

    3 starsMay 26, 2014

    265 N Central Ave, Hartsdale, NY 10530

    It's good. Smaller burgers than most places (which isn't a bad thing for portion control) We went there on a Saturday and they ran out of Chicken at 5pm. Really?

  • Papazzio Restaurant

    5 starsApril 12, 2014

    39-38 Bell Blvd, Bayside, NY 11361

    Upscale Italian with a very extensive GF menu. Without asking, the owner came over and explained the CC procedures in detail. They have a GIG certified kitchen. Most importantly, the food was awesome!

  • Calcutta Wrap and Roll

    5 starsMarch 07, 2014

    465 Ashford Avenue, Ardsley, NY 10502

    Take out-ish Indian with really great food! The menu has 13 GF appetizers, 29 GF entrees, numerous sides & desserts.

  • Little Crepe Street

    5 starsFebruary 20, 2014

    29 East Main Street, Mount Kisco, NY 10549

    GF crepe is so good and soft!

  • Rhong-Tiam

    5 starsFebruary 11, 2014

    31 E 21st St, New York, NY 10010

    It's just a takeout place with a few stools but the food is SO GOOD! Many GF options.

  • Chuck E. Cheese

    5 starsFebruary 09, 2014

    250 New York 59, Nanuet, NY 10954

    No need to worry about cross contamination as the pizza comes out in a sealed bag with plastic pizza cutter. Hey it's a cheap frozen pizza but at least the kids can participate with their friends.

  • Fountain Diner

    4 starsFebruary 01, 2014

    31 South Central Avenue, Hartsdale, NY 10530

    They have White and Multigrain udis. It's a typical NY diner that has everything so they can easily make you something safe like Grilled Chicken, Baked Potato and Veggies. CC could be an issue so be sure to ask.

  • The Dome

    1 starsJanuary 18, 2014

    14 George Street, New Town, Edinburgh, United Kingdom EH2 2PF

    They have a Gf menu but I got horribly glutened here and was unable to eat for 48 hours afterwards.

  • The Little Yang Sing

    4 starsJanuary 18, 2014

    17 George Street, Manchester, United Kingdom M1 4HE

    An unexpected find. In town for work and coworkers decided on this place. Expected to have to explain GF and was instead given an actual GF menu. A limited but varied menu containing appetizers, soups and entrees.

  • Lombardos Marketplace

    4 starsDecember 27, 2013

    1203 Mamaroneck Avenue, White Plains, NY 10605

    Gluten Free Pizza, Pasta and Entrees. Good food, prices and portions.

  • Epstein's Kosher Delicatessen

    3 starsNovember 24, 2013

    387 North Central Avenue, Hartsdale, New York 10530

    GF bread for sandwiches. They have a GF menu but be very careful about cross contamination, nothing is truly separate here. Example: I'm sure they use the same ladle for soups as I've found noodles in my GF chicken rice soup.

  • Sherry Lynn's Gluten Free Bakery

    5 starsNovember 19, 2013

    961 Troy Schenectady Road, Latham, NY 12110

    It's been a summer staple of mine for 2 years. Unfortunately they are closing in December (as a restaurant) and moving their bakery to a new location.

  • Shalimar Restaurant

    4 starsNovember 19, 2013

    180 Delaware Avenue, Delmar, NY 12054

    Pretty good Indian food and very reasonable prices. They have GF naan bread which I've never seen anywhere else. Unfortunately, it was too dry and had no taste. Everything else we ate was good.

  • Sichuan Pavilion

    5 starsNovember 14, 2013

    480 Westchester Avenue, Port Chester, NY 10573

    Small, family run Chinese restaurant. Most items on their menu are listed as "can be prepared GF". Food was excellent although more expensive then typical for the portion size. In my option, worth it if you are eating safetly at Chinese, which is rare. Also parking is a little tricky.

  • California Pizza Kitchen

    4 starsNovember 02, 2013

    365 Central Park Ave., Scarsdale, NY 10583

    New GF pizza was surprisingly good. Looks like they take the new GIG procedures seriously.

  • Wendy's

    5 starsOctober 24, 2013

    91 Saw Mill River Road, Elmsford, NY 10523

    This Wendy's just reopened after a complete rebuild. The friendly manager always remember I order GF. Usually grilled chix no bun and baked potato. She told me that they now have separate fryers for the fries at this location.

  • Luca Bella

    5 starsOctober 05, 2013

    206 Mamaroneck Avenue, White Plains, NY 10601

    The owners of the former Ianelli's have reopened a few blocks away after a 4 year absence. I fondly remember their awesome food (pre GF days). I'm happy to say their amazing home made sauces taste exactly the same, even over GF pasta. They have Pizza, Penne and Ravioli.

  • Enzo's Antichi Sapori Restaurant

    5 starsOctober 01, 2013

    111 Bedford Road, Armonk, NY 10504

    Upscale Italian. They can make "anything" GF. Pasta, entrees, you name it. Warm GF bread was brought to table. They have GF breadcrumbs too if you want breaded items.

  • 5 Napkin Burger

    4 starsSeptember 15, 2013

    2315 Broadway, New York, NY 10024

    Really tasty burgers! They have GF buns but the burgers are so massive I got mine on a lettuce wrap instead. They have a dedicated fryer and the fries were awesome.

  • Local Organic Bites & Ice Cream

    5 starsSeptember 14, 2013

    75 South Greeley Avenue, Chappaqua, NY 10514

    Nice little organic / healthy cafe. They have GF bread and sandwiches, vegan soups, salads and interesting flavors of organic ice cream. You may even catch a glimpse of President Clinton here as he and Hillary frequent the downtown Chappaquua shops.

  • Ruby Foo's Times Square

    1 starsSeptember 09, 2013

    1626 Broadway, New York, NY 10019

    Limited GF menu. Waiter asked if I was GF by choice or if it was a real allergy? Does that mean they'd make the food "more" carefully? They messed up my wife's non GF order twice. My GF orange chicken was tasteless. It was as if there was no sauce at all. The only reason we went was because someone had given us a gift card. $82 including tip for lunch for 2 adults and 1 child. If you are in NYC and want GF Asian, there are many better options.

  • Thai Angel Restaurant

    5 starsSeptember 09, 2013

    1812 Veterans Memorial Highway, Islandia, NY 11749

    Great Thai Food. Most items GF. Staff very knowledgable. Lunch special includes soup salad and entree, all GF! Super clean bathrooms too.

  • Yankee Stadium

    4 starsSeptember 05, 2013

    1 Bronx, NY 10451

    2 GF hot dogs and a red bridge. Awesome way to spend an afternoon. Attendants at GF stand very friendly. Ridiculously expensive even for Yankee Stadium. A Red Bridge is $9.50!

  • Pizza Fusion

    5 starsSeptember 01, 2013

    33 Godwin Ave., Ridgewood, NJ 07450

    Some of the best GF pizza. I love that you can customize everything and they also have DF cheese.

  • Papa Razzi

    3 starsAugust 25, 2013

    159 Newbury St, Boston, MA 02116

    Gluten Free pasta was good. Had to ask for bread multiple times and it basically a Pizza crust, rock hard with olive oil and herbs. Waiter asked if GF was an allergy or choice so they could alert he kitchen.

  • Turkish Cuisine Westchester

    5 starsAugust 17, 2013

    116 Mamaroneck Avenue, Westchester County, NY 10601

    Unpretentious Mediterranean. The owner, Apo, is one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet. He is also the chef and cooks everything from scratch behind the glass counter. I feel very safe eating here since he knows all ingredients. Many dishes are naturally Gluten Free. Some examples of excellent customer service:Every time we go in, without asking, he brings me cucumbers to dip into the hummus instead if bread. He knows our son by name and gives him a big hug when we go in. He remembers our order modifications every time. 4 years ago we came in with our baby. The owner's wife came over and offered to hold the baby so we could eat in peace for a few minutes!

  • Brooks' House of Bar-B-Q

    5 starsAugust 07, 2013

    5560 State Highway 7, Oneonta, NY 13820

    Great food, friendly service and ridiculously inexpensive.

  • Mr. P's Mountain Smokehouse

    5 starsJuly 30, 2013

    1106 U.S. 9, Schroon Lake, NY 12870

    Completely GF BBQ place in a small Adirondack town. Great Texas style food. One of the owners is Celiac. Everything is smoked out back. Right off I-87 if you are headed upstate.

  • S'MAC

    5 starsJuly 13, 2013

    345 E 12th St, New York, NY 10009

    GF / DF Mac and cheese that actually tastes awesome. This review is for the 33rd st location. Much bigger space and easier seating.

  • Grist Mill Restaurant

    5 starsJune 23, 2013

    100 River Street, Warrensburg, NY 12885

    Upscale dining in a small Adirondack town. Incredible views of the river rapids (restaurant is located within an old mill). Many dishes are already GF without modification. Waitress knowledgable and chef accommodating. Expensive but worth it.

  • Shane's Rib Shack

    4 starsMay 31, 2013

    7 Southside Dr. Clifton Park NY 12065

    Good BBQ. GF menu posted right at the ordering counter. Quick service. Sort of like a Chipotle but BBQ.

  • Ali Baba Express

    5 starsMay 29, 2013

    287 Canada Street, Lake George, NY 12845

    Ali Baba Express is an awesome Turkish restaurant in Lake George. While there is a risk of cross contamination here (they make their own lavash bread from scratch) I've never had a reaction. The meats, rice and veggies are all naturally GF.

  • The Greek Cafe

    5 starsMay 03, 2013

    731 Route 211 East #107, Middletown, NY 10940

    Excellent small town Greek restaurant. Many items GF and it says so on the menu. Unlike many places, they hand make their own gyro meat. It doesn't come from a food service distributor so it doesn't have any breadcrumb fillers in it. Really nice staff too.

  • Le Pain Quotidien

    5 starsApril 27, 2013

    30 Purchase Street, Rye, NY 10580

    Took my four year old for lunch. Had GF 6 veggie quiche. They offer open face sandwiches on GF crackers. Lots of organic, vegan options. Quinoa in lots of things. Food was excellent. Not huge portions but I prefer it that way. 30 mins later we realized that we lost the mood ring the kid had bought at the toy store next door. Went back and waiter had saved it for us! Great service. Cross contamination could be a big problem here as they make their own breads. As someone who is only gluten sensitive, I was ok with it.

  • Elegante' Restaurant & Pizzeria

    4 starsApril 22, 2013

    851 Main St, Honesdale, PA 18431

    Decent GF offerings considering the town it's located in. Pizza, pasta and beer.

  • Pizza 2000

    5 starsApril 11, 2013

    337 Halstead Avenue, Harrison, NY 10528

    Great service. GF pasta was cooked perfectly. Very kid friendly. Very reasonably priced too.

  • Dock's Oyster House

    4 starsMarch 16, 2013

    2405 Atlantic Avenue, Atlantic City, NJ 08401

    Old school seafood steak house. It's been there since 1897. Lots of raw bar, steam lobster, steak so lots of naturally GF items. Make sure to verify side items as the menu didn't indicate the steak came with onion rings but they did. Had an excellent reasonably priced meal with no ill effects.

  • Buddakan

    3 starsMarch 16, 2013

    1 Atlantic Ocean, Atlantic City, NJ 08401

    Fancy Asian fusion place. Some menu items are naturally GF or can be prepared GF. I had the pad thai which was too spicy and not sweet enough. Staff were good. It's expensive about $70 per person including drinks.

  • Cafe 2825

    5 starsMarch 16, 2013

    2825 Atlantic Avenue, Atlantic City, NJ 08401

    Old school Italian place. Better than anything you'd find in a casino. Owner is very hands on and made me feel very safe. Everything is made from scratch so he knows all ingredients. They have GF pasta and can make most entrees GF. He created an off menu dish for me that I would have never tried otherwise and it was amazing. Expensive but so worth it.

  • China Sea of Absecon

    5 starsMarch 10, 2013

    662 White Horse Pike, Absecon, NJ 08201

    Down in AC for a conference and pleasantly surprised. GF Chinese as good as midtown manhattan. Wide variety of options.

  • Chat

    4 starsMarch 10, 2013

    1 Christie Place, Scarsdale, NY 10583

    Upscale American bistro with diverse GF menu at dinner. About 12 items. I had the risotto special which was very good. Lots of families with kids at 5pm and then clientele shifts at 7pm.

  • Buddha Bodai

    4 starsMarch 02, 2013

    5 Mott Street, New York, NY 10013

    100% vegetarian Chinatown restaurant. This is not Americanized Chinese food. They have fake meat for all dishes much of which is made with wheat gluten. However, they do also have a bunch of GF items. Food was interesting and not what I was used to. It's also Kosher. I'm not sure how much I trust their kitchen for CC but it was certainly an experience.

  • Nizza

    5 starsFebruary 19, 2013

    630 9th Ave, New York, NY 10036

    Great food. Perfectly cooked pasta. Amazing bread. Friendly service. Reasonably priced.

  • Uno Chicago Grill

    2 starsFebruary 17, 2013

    14 Martine Ave, White Plains, NY 10606

    Staff is very friendly but we are always disappointed by the food. Yes it's a chain so I guess I shouldn't expect perfection. Last time we did take out here was a big old breadstick sitting right on top of the GF labeled entree with the words "GF no breadstick."

  • Meli-Melo

    5 starsFebruary 02, 2013

    362 Greenwich Avenue, Greenwich, CT 06830

    A really wonderful place. Kid friendly. A welcomed change from you typical GF experience. They have crêpes. Many many crêpes and ALL can be made GF! Savory entree crêpes can be made with 100% buckwheat and dessert with sweet rice flour. Lots of soups and salads too. Oddly, while they have something as unique as GF crêpes they don't have any GF bread for sandwiches but who needs that when you can get a crêpes!

  • La Bottega

    5 starsJanuary 26, 2013

    49 Covert Avenue, Floral Park, NY 11001

    Really excellent place. Owner Paul is very knowledgable and super friendly. Food is consistently great! They have GF soups, entrees, pasta and uniquely, paninis. Any of their long list of Italian paninis can be made GF with special bread or they'll customize whatever you want. This is a small local chain but this location is the best one of the bunch.

  • Frankie & Fanucci's Wood Oven Pizzeria

    2 starsJanuary 23, 2013

    301 Mamaroneck Ave, Mamaroneck, NY 10543

    Pizza was very dry and too burnt.

  • Downtown 731 Restaurant

    3 starsJanuary 23, 2013

    731 Saw Mill River Road, Ardsley, NY 10502

    Food was decent. Kitchen backed up at lunch time with only 5 other customers. Biggest problem is that it's way too expensive. Lunch portion of Chicken Kebab was $16. In Tarrytown you get the same for $13 plus a huge Greek salad.

  • Lilli And Loo

    5 starsJanuary 19, 2013

    792 Lexington Ave, New York, NY 10065

    The best GF Chinese anywhere.

  • Mozzarelli’s

    1 starsJanuary 19, 2013

    38 E 23rd St, New York, NY 10010

    When in the city on weekdays it was my go to lunch place. GF pizza by the slice? Yes sir ! However once went on a weekend, very quiet and pizza turnover is much slower. Got VIOLENTLY ill. Worse than a gluten reaction this was a food poisoning reaction.

  • Bartaco

    5 starsJanuary 12, 2013

    1 Willett Avenue, Port Chester, NY 10573

    Everything on the menu except 3 things is GF. They also have GF beer.

  • Bangkok Kitchen

    4 starsJanuary 07, 2013

    391 Bloomfield Avenue, Caldwell, NJ 07006

    Menu says "most items are GF." Owner is knowledgable. Not the the best Thai food I've ever had but very good and I feel comfortable eating here.

  • Positano Restaurant and Pizzeria

    4 starsJanuary 06, 2013

    245 Berdan Ave, Wayne, NJ 07470

    They are willing to adjust most entrees to be GF. Pasta was typical corn based penne and a little dry. Too little sauce (we did take out so I was unable to ask for more)

  • Tony's Brothers Pizza

    1 starsJanuary 06, 2013

    20 W Oakland Ave, Oakland, NJ 07436

    They put breaded chicken cutlet into my GF pasta dish. Obviously, their chef is not trained on the basics of GF.

  • Mama's Cheese Bread Factory

    5 starsDecember 04, 2012

    594 Federal Rd, Brookfield, CT 06804

    Amazing Chebe type bread. Very unexpected find. Great food, friendly service and free samples for new customers. Prices are a bargain too.

  • Porter House

    5 starsOctober 21, 2012

    169 Mamaroneck Ave, White Plains, NY 10605

    So nice to have a sports / Irish bar with knowledgable staff and great GF options. First of all, they carry Estrella Damm Daura beer which is 1000x better than that swill Redbridge and its only $6. They also have 5 different brands of GF cider. They have canyon bakehouse hamburger buns for burgers and sandwiches. They don't charge extra for GF either. Go out with friends, watch the game and enjoy a real bar meal!

  • Cafe Rustica

    5 starsSeptember 29, 2012

    200 Middle Neck Rd, Great Neck, NY 11021

    Really excellent for GF. Very extensive menu. You can even get GF breaded chicken parm. Make sure to mention GF when first sitting down an they will bring you special warm, soft breadsticks.

  • Mocha Bleu

    3 starsSeptember 29, 2012

    1399 Queen Anne Rd, Teaneck, NJ 07666

    Decent option for when our family (some of which keep kosher) and myself for GF. They charge $6 extra for GF pasta which is obnoxious. However, they do have a few homemade GF deserts.

  • Golden Wok Cafe

    5 starsAugust 09, 2012

    875 Saw Mill River Rd, Ardsley, NY 10502

    Unbelievably extensive GF menu for a Chinese restaurant. You can order all your favorites like General Tso, chicken broq, noodles, soup, spare ribs, etc.
