    Wow wow wow!!! We had the fried pickles, macaroni and cheese, pastrami Reuben, chicken and waffles, and a brownie sundae. I would recommend all of it! I can’t wait to go back.

    I reviewed this restaurant once already, but I can’t say enough good about this place. 99% of the menu can be done gf and they are super knowledgeable about celiac and take it really seriously. All the food, gf and otherwise, is simply amazing. Well worth the prices, worth the return trip, worth it, worth it! Breakfast (including gf bagels!), lunch, dinner, dessert (gf pie!)

    We recently enjoyed a fantastic meal at Friedmans. We were told by our waiter that 99% of their menu can be adapted to gluten free. My 13 year old daughter, who is a coeliac, enjoyed a feast of burger & chips followed by a delicious brownie in a cup. She also tried their cheesecake which was a real treat ! She was delighted ! Would definitely recommend this restaurant for coeliacs ... completely safe. Thank you ... we will definitely be back on our next trip to NY. Rachel (Dublin, Ireland)

    This was a DREAM for any celiac; super tasty food with lots of options and a great experience with friendly staff. Got to have fresh made waffles, fried chicken, and potstickers for the first time in so long. I wish I wasn't too full to try their dessert menu a tee the tasty meal- I highly recommend!

    99% of the menu was gluten free and the rest of it can be made gf!! Dishes made with gf precautions come with a little flag in them to mark. The staff was knowledgeable and helpful! I got the chicken and waffles, and it tasted completely normal: the waffle was delicious and true chicken was crispy and not greasy at all!!! Prices were kinda high (but I mean, it’s NYC what do you expect?) definitely and new favorite!!!

    Wow. Truly a great restaurant for GF. We arrived about 40 minutes before closing time and we didn't feel rushed or that we were putting them out. Had the best GF mac and cheese ever. Correction - best mac and cheese ever! I had the reuben - it was fantastic! Dedicated fryer - so fried things are GF. We had the spinach and artichoke dip - again it was amazing. None of the food was even average - it was all great. We would highly recommend and plan to go back on our next trip. Well done!

    This place is amazing!!! What a gem in NYC! We are here twice during a weekend stay..once for breakfast and once for dinner! Staff is so knowledgeable. Food was amazing.. several things that aren’t typically gluten free at your typical restaurant. Amazing fontina Mac and cheese, brownie dessert, pancakes..but also good quality food.. an amazing kale salad as well! You have got to go here!

    As a newly diagnosed Celiac diner I was very nervous about my trip to NYC. This is by far one of the best restaurants for gluten free dining. The staff is very knowledgeable and everything on the menu is made gluten free. I was able to eat French fries and even apple pie for dessert!!!

    I came here for dinner and breakfast and the food is phenomenal. Almost everything is gluten free and they are extremely knowledgeable. I had a wonderful salad for dinner AND fries! For breakfast I had eggs with toast and my mom ordered pancakes that were delicious. Highly recommend. We never had to wait for a table and the food came fairly quickly!

    Excellent! The menu does not indicate which is gluten free, but everything on the menu can be made gluten free except the matzo ball soup. The chef at this location has celiac disease. Had the Reuben sandwich and the fried chicken sandwich. Both were delicious! No reactions!

    Went for lunch before a matinee and worked out great. By noon it was filling up but not bad. I liked this Friedman's much better than the one in Chelsea Market. I'd go here over Senza next time (we went there for dinner).

    They advertise that they have an extensive gluten free menu which they do. However please beware - all of their gluten free bread items; bread, bagels and buns contain dairy. Since a dairy intolerance is so common with celiac individuals I was surprised at this. They had no non dairy gluten free bread options for sandwiches, toast, etc.

    My favourite place to eat in New York. So many options and almost everything can be done gluten free including the fries. They ask for allergies before placing an order and everything gluten free comes out with a flag on it. Are there every morning for breakfast and the rest of my group who are not celiac also loved this place. You have to visit here!
