My first few weeks in New York have been amazing but a total whirlwind and I hoped I could blog more often to share all the great gluten free finds I have made. You can keep up to date on my daily food diary via twitter though just follow me on @glutenfree4tea . The first thing that’s great about eating out gluten free in New York is the amount of places that offer it, I have found or stumbled across so many restaurants, cafés and shops all over the city that offer gluten free menus or gluten free dishes. It’s also so convenient here, I ended up getting alot dinners to takeaway which is perfect if you are working in the city or need something quick for lunch or dinner. Here are my list of finds so far;
Murray Hill and Upper East Side
Il start with one of the best, a 100% gluten free bakery! I was very lucky that one of their cafés is right by where I am currently staying so I have already been a few times. They have the most delicious fresh baked cakes, cookies, brownies and cupcakes. Plus they do a special grilled cheese sandwich on their home baked bread. Definitely Continue reading
The Gilbert Scott is the stunning restaurant inside of the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel and I recently got taken here for lunch by my very kind relatives who were visiting London.I can see why they chose here, its beautiful inside the hotel and being led to the restaurant felt abit like walking through Hogwarts, the dining area is equally as grand.
The meal started off well, after explaining about my gluten allergy they promptly brought me my own portion of gluten free bread and butter, which I always think is a nice touch so you don’t feel left out when the rest of the table can dig into Continue reading
2 Oxford Place has recently opened its doors in Leeds and is the city’s first 100% gluten free restaurant. In fact I’m sure its one of only a handful in the country that can make this claim, even in London I only know of a couple. I was already planning a visit back home to Leeds this weekend and heard that 2 Oxford Place had just opened so I had to Continue reading
Anthony took me out for a lovely dinner last week to Fredrick’s in Angel, Islington. He wanted to try out his new Taste Card he got a trial of a few weeks ago so he looked on their website for somewhere nice around Upper Street that had a good taste card offer. Fredrick’s was advertising buy one get one free on all courses which seemed excellent value considering this place is one of the top destinations in Angel and main courses range in price up to £28. It is a really nice venue for a date or special dinner, with a lovely conservatory area at the back and some interesting trees growing in the middle of the restaurant!
