Dig Inn has become my go-to for a quick, safe, gluten-free meal. There are locations throughout Manhattan and maybe beyond. I'll copy/paste this review to the three locations I have been to.

This is a build-a-bowl kind of place with a good homecooked vibe. The only things that have gluten are the farro base and macaroni and cheese. There are clearly marked on their menus. Staff are knowledgeable and should be able to clue you in on any seasonal items that show up. I typically get rice, kale salad, cauliflower salad, and chicken breast with the garlic aioli sauce. I have also tried and very much enjoyed the salmon and the meatballs.

This set us is chipotle-style where you pick your base and they add toppings from a buffet. Most of the selections are gluten free. The food is really fresh and well prepared, with a Mediterranean and middle eastern flair. Great proteins and roasted colorful veggies.

Editing to say that sometimes it’s hit or miss with the service. They don’t seem to have a standard protocol for allergens and many times the employees don’t speak English and/or they look at me like I’m crazy if I ask them to change their gloves. But the food is good regardless, you just have to coach them a lot and be patient.

Good food and good food safety!

I said gluten allergy and they immediately changed gloves and washed hands. Then when someone else forgot to, they apologized unprompted (before I even realized it could be a problem), changed gloves, and remade the bowl for me. They clearly all understood the importance of avoiding cross contamination and I felt very taken care of. I will certainly be coming back!

This was a great and reasonably priced option for the GF eater. The online menu is not as informative but the onsite menu has clear GF and other allergen information. The chef was also on site when I ordered and listed the ingredients in the homemade dressings too! So delish as well and with healthy and fresh options.

This is a build-your-own plate restaurant (not dissimilar to Poke or Chipotle), but with all fresh gluten and other allergen labeled ingredients and items. Protein bowls with hot or cold vegetables. They have their own homemade drinks too.

Unsure if/how Dig Inn has changed in the past few years, but a few years ago I had an allergic reaction at one of their NYC locations because they did not disclose that soy sauce (the regular kind with wheat) was used in cooking the broccoli.

If you’re looking for quickly prepared fresh food, this is the place. The menu indicates food allergens, including gluten free. My personal favorite is the GF salmon bowl and brownie (made with sweet potatoes!) They also have a selection of sandwiches, bowls, salads and desserts that DO contain gluten (check the menu). The staff is always welcoming.
