Gluten-free in New York
I get many questions about how easy it is to eat gluten-free in New York. New York is a big city filled with diverse dietary requirements, so waiters will not be surprised if you request gluten-free dishes in restaurants. Quite often, there will be a variety of gluten-free dishes on the menu, or the standard dishes can be adapted to suit your needs. However, there also are restaurants and bakeries that are known to be partially or entirely gluten-free. I have made a selection of them for you here.
There are a few supermarkets in New York that offer a great variety of gluten-free products. Definitely check out Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s. Both chains have multiple locations across Manhattan. These supermarkets are not cheap, but you will be able to find anything you need there.
