Gone downhill...Food is mediocre; service, ditto. Poor job listing allergens/ingredients, noisy, dirty, overpriced for what you get. Management got greedy...used to be better
The chocolate is fabulous, but the bowls are a bit dry (meat) and although there is some good flavor....I don’t see us making a special trip.
Gluten free and dairy free!! Deli style with focaccia and bread to die for.
Very GF and paleo friendly. If you are sensitive to nuts however, be wary. Most dishes seemed to have nuts in the recipe.
Everything was marked and they even asked while making my food whether I had any additional sensitivities/allergies. Tons of options for dining in or taking out.
Tasty food, but I broke out in hives after so something in it wasn’t gluten free. I had the eggs + biscuit.
LOVE it and my friend esme who i was visiting. i asked her where i'd be able to find some gluten free things for lunch and she took me to this fantastic place where i could eat ANYTHING i wanted! i'm so happy that dedicated gluten free kitchens are springing up. i really like the buffet line/cafeteria format at Hu, everything i've eaten here has been very good or better, and there's so much variety it's super hard to decide what to get! my only "complaint" is that the portions are so large it means i can only get 2 or 3 different items. i'm more of a tapas-style eater so i'm looking forward to going back one day when i can take leftovers for many meals/snacks back to wherever i'm staying rather than only a lunch while i'm out and about in manhattan.
No need to worry here! All healthy options. Great atmosphere too!
Ordered delivery to hotel, arrived within 25 minutes. Soup was great but the free foccacia bread they provided was a tiny piece and really dry. Was tasty but not amazing
Everything is gluten free and full of taste!
They have great hot food and they're shelf products are delicious and fun! Whenever I stop by for lunch, I also grab a bag of gf granola--it's the best. Really.
Can’t even believe I stumbled upon a GF Paleo place while in NY! Had a fantastic dish of root mash with curry chicken - delicious. Bought several desserts to go for the rest of my trip - Paleo brownie, Paleo cookies and a slice of carrot cake. Also great were the grainless focaccia bread which came with the meal. Love the dinner bun made with a combo of almond and coconut flours. Entire place is GF which makes eating and ordering completely stress free.
Food is gluten, dairy and refined sugar free. Great choice excellent food.
Pros: healthy and tasty gf and paleo friendly. Water is filtered and clean. Hourly staff are great. Nice decor. Great concept. Food is clean eating. Cons: inconsistent pricing. Different employees tell you different prices for numerous items. Portions are never the same. It depends on who serves it to you and whose watching over them. Rarely any consistency. Staff keeps changing. Pricing needs to be in writing on the boards for each and every items including individual items to go, so there is less confusion. Not just for the main items they serve. Pricing per ounces and pounds would be helpful when buying sides and single items. Needs to be in writing on the boards. The kitchen managers are not always polite when an issue occurs. It depends whose there that day. No longer a pleasant experience when buy between $100 and $200 dollars in food at a time. Which used to be often. Also, the lines need barriers ropes to control crowds when busy. Things get confusing and messy for patrons during the crowded times. People argue and get stressed.
Love this place--tonnes of cafeteria style options, all delicious, deserts! Never gotten sick.
Extremely GF friendly! Most items they serve are GF and Paleo! A nice place to grab a snack, breakfast or a quick bite to eat/take-out!
Thankful for places like this.... My standards are somewhat complex... GF DF Organic Paleo ....and I want my food to taste good. These guys don't think that's too much to ask.
LOL Kate is it not safe for Celiacs..... wallets? Phony review. This is a DEDICATED GF FACILITY. If you got sick it clearly wasn't here. Met the team at the GF Expo - they were very passionate and I'm excited to visit more often.
This place is amazing! Not only is the entire place free from gluten but also dairy too! I felt very safe eating here and the selection is endless! It's buffet style and made me feel like a normal person while still keeping healthy! Will come here every time I am back in New York!
Absolutely fantastic. Had a breakfast bowl with a base of cauliflower purée, sautéed veggies, and an egg on top. So full of flavor! And a side of rotisserie pineapple with cashew cream...beyond description. I've never had so many choices for GF food, especially as a vegetarian (note: my hubby is an omnivore and had plenty of hearty meat choices). Can't say enough about this place.
Absolutely not safe for celiacs.
The entire menu is GF! The food is a bit pricey, so watch out. But if you are traveling and in need of a hearty, high quality GF meal, this is your place. The seating area is casual and the time I was there it was packed.
Totally GF. Delish.
I love that they are all gf but... A bit overpriced on the hot items. Be careful of the grab and go stuff. There are no prices on them and they are really expensive! I got a meh chicken salad for $14 when $6 would be too much!!! Also the cashiers are rude and apathetic.
Yes (it's safe for Celiacs) Yes (the food is delicious) Yes (it's expensive- whaddya want, it's New York!)
So delighted when I came across this place by accident. The food is delicious, packed full of taste, and reasonably priced - a main plus two sides for less than 20 dollars and I was stuffed!! I took three non celiac friends and they loved it too. Can't recommend this place highly enough.
I tried this place for breakfast on Friday while on an overnight trip to NYC. They are 100% gluten free ( among other food allergens) and Paleo/Primal. To say I enjoyed it would be an understatement. When you walk in, the atmosphere is really alive. They have a few seats to the right and a 'bar' where you can eat, more like a counter. I think they called it a 'mash bar' since they also make smoothies. Coffee is made behind counter as well. You can see/ pick out your fruit for smoothie. They also have a bakery case. It all looked amazing. I had a strawberry Paleo muffin, so yummy. At the back, they sell their own products like granola, Brownies, chia pudding, chocolate bars( I bought the dark chocolate banana). It was very rich and delicious. I ordered two plates so I could eat one on the train on the way back. I had a Paleo wrap with egg whites, sweet potato hash and veggies. I was so full but had to finish, I loved it! For the train I ordered Jordy Cakes with cashew cream and berries. They were banana pancakes and almond flour I think. The cashew cream was amazing. There was also seating upstairs. Chairs were made out of tree trunks, so cool looking. Coffee condiment area had coconut sugar, coconut milk ( which I love in my coffee), almond milk, among other alternatives. I highly, highly recommend this place. If I lived in NYC I would probably go broke from eating there every day, you could not keep me out of this place. Can't wait to go back, nor soon enough!!
One of my favorite places to eat! Taste great and I feel great when I'm done eating. Love their packaged food as well as sit down restaurant.
This establishment is not only gluten free, it's practically Paleo/Primal (there are some dairy and some sweeteners, but minimal use of both), and everything is well labeled. Staff is very knowledgeable. Friends, you have the entire menu to choose from! Go and enjoy! Even my hubby, who has no dietary restrictions and eats like a bachelor when I'm not around, loved what he got. Definitely returning the next time I'm in NYC. Also: try the roasted pineapple. OMG! So good. If these guys put out a cookbook, I'm getting it.
The entire place is dedicated gluten free. It's also soy free (among other things as well). Delicious real food. I never get sick here. It's the one place I can always count on. Have been numerous times!
Hu has become my go-to lately whenever I find myself in the city. As other reviewers have noted, the entire menu (with the exception of the beers) are GF, and as such I check my worries at the door. Most dishes feature a short list of ingredients, but everything I've had so far has been wholesome and delicious. The stuffed squash is particularly good, as is the meatloaf and the 'Diesel Parker' - a grain-free lasagna consisting of vegetables, cashew cream, and topped with ground beef. Be advised though, if you have issues with coconut ingredients, Hu uses them pretty extensively in their dishes.
It wasn't bad, it wasn't great though. My Jordy Cakes were a little on the bland side, though the cashew cream and berries were very helpful on that front.
All gluten free.
Great food, completely gluten free. Nice to have a place to go without table service. Good for quick meal on the weekends.
Awesome place. Felt great after eating here. No junk in any of the food.
Amazing food! Love that I can eat anything, and it tastes so good! Will definitely come back!
Expensive but so good.
A dream come true. Loved the food, the people, and the atmosphere. I wish they had one near me!
This place is phenomenal. It is like a gluten free paradise. They have tons of amazing options for paleo diet too. The roast chicken is succulent, the cauliflower purée is amazing, the chia parfait station is decadent. I hope they open more branches at some point in the city.
This place is the real deal. The ENTIRE restaurant is gluten-free! Nice atmosphere, nice staff. We had an all-around awesome time here. No table service, though, but it's fast and convenient.
