Oovina Latin Kitchen is dedicated gluten-free restaurant right in the heart of Midtown, NYC.  And I didn’t even know it existed until last weekend! Adjacent to the lights of Broadway, this ambient latin kitchen offers a perfect pre-show menu for a dazzling gluten-free dinner. We were in the area to see Oh Hello at the Lyceum theater,...

Senza Gluten is a completely gluten-free Italian restaurant nestled on an expectedly bustling street in downtown NYC. I had passed its botanical street front [pictured left] several times and made many a mental note to try this place out.  With a name like Senza (Without) Gluten, how could I have waited so long!? Considering Senza’s quaint (that’s...

 It was 11:45am on Tuesday when I decided I was hungry.  And not just hungry – hungry for BREAKFAST. Sadly, my gluten-free golden child, Hu Kitchen, stopped serving breakfast at 11:30AM, not only leaving me out on a lunchtime lurch but also striking a sensitive nerve with me [cue childhood flashback montage of justmissing McDonald’s breakfasts]. I...

I have been gluten free in New York City for a decade.  Needless to say, I have tried many a glutenless menu in my day.  Very few have had as many options, offered such peace of mind AND have been as absolutely delicious as Bistango’s Ristorante’s on 29th St and 3rd Ave.  In my opinion, Bistango is the holy grail of [gluten-free] Italian...

I will admit, I am a Mets fan.  Morever, though, I am a New York fan.  MoreMoreover, I am a gluten-free food fan.  So, when people offer me Yankees tickets, which happens oddly often, I dig out my pink Yankees hat and muster up some team spirit because, not only is Yankee Stadium a huge NY attraction, it is also home to the Gluten Free NY Grill–...

It was an overcast, on-and-off rainy day on Tuesday in New York City.  Since I was a kid, I have always associated rainy days with macaroni & cheese.  I don’t know why, exactly — I guess my Mom didn’t want to go out in the rain and just whipped up a box of mac-con-queso and called it a tradition.  In any event, the association...

image from dinosaurbarbque.com This past weekend, I threw on some forgiving leggings and headed to Dinosaur Barbeque (where elastic waistbands are not optional) for a meal to conquer all meals.  In case you didn’t already know, Dinosaur BBQ, with six locations across NY (as well as in NJ & IL), is the BBQ place to BE.  From the fun down-home atmosphere...

“Gluten free cupcakes.”   There are few combinations of words in the english language that, when strung together, make me as happy as these three words do.  To be honest, when I first heard about this gluten-free bakery, I didn’t want to get my hopes up.  Being gluten-free for nearly a decade, I have long pined for the sweet, spongy rapture that is the cupcake.  I’ve been disappointed by the imitation cake treats that Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s have thrown at me but I’ve long figured,...

 “Pip, Pip, Hooooray!” For Thanksgiving and Christmas, we custom-ordered gluten-free apple and pumpkin pies from Pip’s Place: gluten-free bakery in NYC.   I remember when I first went gluten-free, I had to bake anything I was craving from scratch.  The pre-packaged imitation bakery treats just never got the job done for me.  I’d...
