The Promenade Shops at Clifton, 850 New Jersey 3, Clifton, NJ 07012
Excellent authentic BBQ. All the meats are gfcf. The only gluten items are obvious things like bread, and they will change gloves if you ask for gf. Most items are dairy free except fairly obvious things like sweet potatoes and a side that has cheese. A little pricey, but an entree and two sides can be a meal for two.

Lots of interesting choices for burger toppings, and dairy free friendly. Ask for the allergen list. They say the fries are safe but I forget if they are a dedicated fryer. Our favorite of the many burger joints. A little pricey, but the add-ons aren't as expensive as most places, so you can get creative with lots of toppings.

Great food "that happens to be gf and vegan". Sticky buns TO DIE FOR. Donuts pretty good, a touch dry. Chocolate PB crisp bar also amazing. A few savory options - we split a delicious pot pie. The decor is clean and cute, plenty of seating, good music, friendly staff.
2190 W Burnside St, Portland, OR 97210
Uber friendly, and really delicious food. Able to accommodate dairy free/vegan, though the vegan waffles are an extra 1.50, so it was a little expensive. Waffles served all day. Tiny place, kinda felt like eating in an eccentric aunt's kitchen, but the owners were so warm that it was very nice.

Can't recommend based on my one visit. I couldn't convince the server that coconut milk is not milk, and he only reluctantly got me rice without cream (I ordered a"vegan" dish") but he still wasn't convinced that cream was milk. Maybe I just got a bad server, but it didn't inspire much confidence in their ability to handle allergies.

Great restaurant, great service, great gf experience. GF items marked in the menu. Dairy free options also. GF beer selection was omission pale, omission IPA, and Tweasonale. Split the wurst platter with a friend - you can't go wrong.

Just a corner grocery, but they had a great selection of gf beers & a few snack foods (incl. Tate's cookies). I found two beers I'd never seen before.
167 Chrystie Street, New York, NY 10002
Several gf beers, including some that are very hard to find/rare. Dozens of interesting ciders and meads too.
153 Park Ave, Rutherford, NJ 07070
Cupcakes are great! Lots of frosting. Usually only vanilla & chocolate gf, but there was an awesome pumpkin flavor the last time I went.

Have eaten here dozens of times without a problem. Ask for the allergy book at the hostess station - gf options are listed, along with the top 8 allergens. Beware that the seasoning mix is not gf, nor are the fries (i ask for steamed veg instead). The book gives you the modifications to request - no bun, no seasoning, etc.. They make the best lettuce "bun" around, though!
700 Bloomfield Ave, Montclair, NJ 07042
We were very happy with our brunch. I had a soy latte and their fantastic homemade hash & eggs (sans the eponymous toast, the dish is gf & milk-free). There were numerous gf options including pancakes, I believe. Staff seemed knowledgeable.

Boo hiss! This location will NOT make lettuce wraps for burgers. No idea why, since I haven't had problems elsewhere. I asked on two separate occasions just to be sure. If you don't mind eating a patty in a foil wrapper, though, at least it's gf. And the fries! Not A+ fries, but pretty good. Also, it's nice, for once, to have something to munch on while you wait - peanuts - unless of course someone in your group is allergic!

Excellent treatment of gf. Not so many options were dairy-free, which was disheartening. Really, I didn't think it was very good risotto. It was okay. But, then, we're food snobs, so you might love it. Still, I'd rather head a few blocks over to Souen (macrobiotic) or around the corner to Home (great but pricey). If you do go, get a drink at the Blind Tiger Ale House across the street, who started carrying Green's at my request ;)
637 Wyckoff Ave, Wyckoff, NJ 07481
Ate here once - very good (and I'm picky about good tacos), pretty authentic, and the chef/owner/manager was willing and able to help w allergy questions. Dairy free isn't a problem either.
240 Hackensack St, East Rutherford, NJ 07073
Many gf options available, even Green's beer and Doc's cider. Ask for the Celiac Menu. You have to cross-reference that with the regular menu to see what specials are available that day. My favorites (dairy-free also) are the vegan polenta lasagna and the stuffed acorn squash. Pricey, but you can easily get 2 or 3 meals from the leftovers - enormous portions. Great wine list, too. Great for a group our biz meal, bc the menu has a lot of variety (maybe too much!) and you can safely order your gf meal here without having to draw too much attention to yourself - a rare luxury for us, right?

Good chinese for dine-in or takeout. GF menus right on the counter and takeout containers are marked GF, which is comforting. Sesame chicken is good; my favorite was the similar Chicken with Honey Walnuts. Also like the coconut chicken soup. it' not cheap, but I could usually make two meals out of the takeout order.
