We’ve been in NYC for 3 days and are at Friedman’s for the third time! The menu is just varied enough that we had different things each day for breakfast and are now here for dinner. My kids are happy to have fries!!

This food was amazing. 2 celiac had a ton of choices on the menu. We were amazed. Super charming atmosphere. We had fried chicken sandwiches, tomato soup, and the most amazing brownie milkshakes I have ever seen gluten free or not. Delicious food right in the theater district.

Amazing food and service!! They have a dedicated gluten free fryer and everything on the menu has a gluten free option. I had the fried chicken sandwich super tasty. The Brownie milk shake was out of this world. The servers are performers and were so talented. I have celiacs disease and didn’t get sick at all which is rare. I highly recommend this restaurant!!

I’m giving four stars because they’re safe and have a lot of gluten free options, but the missing star is the food was not that good. The burger was bland and overcooked, the chicken sandwich was dry and needed a sauce, and my friend’s soda was completely flat. We got there 1.5 hours before closing and half an hour before closing they turned on the lights and rushed us out. If you need a very safe eating experience or are craving something on the menu I’d recommend for that, but for me it wasn’t the quality I expected. Maybe it’s better at lunch.

Let the server know we had Celiac and were told anything could be modified to be gluten free. Ordered fried chicken sandwich with fries and pastrami sandwich with house made chips. No issues from the food and the Seasonal Spritz drink was delicious. Atmosphere was fun, with singing servers between 5ish and 9pm.

I didn’t enjoy this location that is inside The Edison Hotel. The food wasn’t nearly as good as the Herald location. They also have live music but it’s show tunes and SO LOUD that we couldn’t have a conversation at all and had to sit there staring at each other and occasionally awkwardly got sung to and asked to contribute money. The singers were talented but they need a much larger venue than the small space inside the dining room. A $22 burger and fries should taste much better than it actually did. We were really disappointed after enjoying the Herald Square location so much.

So great to have GF breakfast! This location did not have GF French toast, which we had at a different location yesterday. The kids got pancakes. They were huge - three gigantic pancakes. We actually should have had them share. Could have saved $20. So good and felt super safe.

Everything on their menu (minus Matz balls & Matz ball soup) can be prepared GF. Tons of options. Had the spinach & artichoke dip (was more of a liquid than a dip) and fresh fried corn chips. Pretty bland for a $12 app, but was a huge portion. Had the fried chicken & waffle. Also bland but chicken batter was the best I’ve had in a while. Waffle was fluffy which is hard to come by for GF!! Everything GF comes marked with a orange flag!
