Thanks for letting me know! It has been removed from the site.

Gluten free restaurant options

I just wanted to bring back this topic so I could mention that Pizza Pizza has introduced a gluten-free crust for those of us with Celiac Disease.

Currently, it is only available at come locations in Toronto but I hope they expand its availability as it is very good!!

Caution - the pepperoni contains wheat!! Please check ingredients before purchasing:

Magic Oven relocating?

I think possibly another reason they survived is because they actually cater to people with dietary restrictions - like they have vegan and gluten-free options for pizzas, pastas and cakes.

As a person with Celiac Disease, I personally have never tried their regular wheat crust or pasta so I can't really comment on those. I don't like their gluten-free rice flour crust (it tastes weird) but I can understand other Celiacs being excited by the fact that they can order safe foods from a menu like that... those people probably haven't discovered Il Fornello's gluten-free pizza :P

Gluten Free Dining

I came across this website, which lists all of the restaurants in NYC that offer gluten-free meals or bakery items -

Some have already been mentioned here by other users. Maps and links to each place are available on the site as well.

Baby Cakes
Sugar Free, Wheat Free, Gluten Free, Vegan

Bistango Restaurant
Charming Italian Restaurant located at 415 3rd Avenue (At 29th St & 3rd Ave) New York, New York 10016

Bloom's Delicatessen Cafe
Dinner style menu with large portions

Mexican fare made from fresh ingredients and, like the rest of the food, the guacamole (Gluten Free) is not from a mix so its pretty easy to find something safe to eat. The waitstaff knows the ingredients is helpful with related questions.

Candle 79
Vegetarian dining at two Manhattan locations

Carrabba's Italian Grill
This Italian restaurant is located throughout the United States and offers a gluten free menu along with their standard offerings in a casual, warm, festive atmosphere.

(I am hesitant about adding this one... I went there once and they told me the fries are cooked in the same fryer as everything else gluteny, even though they list them as wheat-free. I was unsure if the other "wheat-free" menu items were indeed wheat-free or gluten-free - like the corn bread and dosas. Maybe I'm just paranoid :p)
