Mango Sticky Rice At Pure Thai Cookhouse
Its an unusual choice, but this Thai dish is one of my favorite desserts of all time. Its also naturally gluten-free.

For those unfamiliar with the crave-able treat, its generally served as a bed of warm, sticky coconut-flavored rice topped with coconut sauce and slices of ripe, sweet mango.

Corn Cookies At Schmackarys
The goofy name may be embarrassing to say out loud, but this bakerys gluten-free offerings are anything but shameful. One can walk in on any given day and find delectable gluten-free cookies in intriguing flavors like Monster or Yogi Bare . My personal favorite is Sweet Corn, a cookie made from corn flour, cornmeal, sweet corn, cranberries and pecan bitsthe perfect blend of salty and sweet.
Schmackarys also has an online menu that helpfully denotes which of its daily offerings is gluten-free.
Schmackarys, 362 West 45th Street, www.schmackarys.com

Its a 100% gluten free NYC restaurant that makes bagels .
Youll also find some sit down brunch options which look fantastic.

Friedmans: Celiac Safe Fried Chicken & Waffles
This is the final restaurant in the Celiac-must-eat trifecta the other two being Senza Gluten and Bistango.
The food is what I would call upscale American think burgers, sandwiches, salads, etc. Almost everything on the menu can be made gluten free and the best part is the gluten free flag that marks your dish as it is served to you.
But I visited for one thing, and one thing only. I walked in, asked for a table for one, sat down at the communal high top, and waited in anticipation.
The waiter walked over. I made eye contact. He asked how I was doing and what I would like to eat.
I said Im a celiac, and I would like the fried chicken and cheddar waffles with habanero honey gluten free please.
The rest is history!
They have several locations across the city and do a great job of catering to those of us with celiac disease. They have dedicated fryers and prep areas. Its a great place to grab a quick breakfast or lunch.
I didnt make it back for seconds, but once was enough for me to know that it is a celiacs paradise. Order the fried chicken and cheddar waffles extra habanero honey.

Gluten Free New York Restaurants: Includes Bakeries Lunch Spots Great Dinners And More Last Update: August 24 2021
I rarely wrote about having celiac disease when I started this site, as the focus was not food. Now that food figures prominently, I get more and more questions about travel with food restrictions. Its part of why I dedicated a full chapter to food allergies in my book, and started my own celiac guides and translation cards for travelers. At the bottom of this post, Ive included other resources for those wanting to visit New York as a celiac.
Red highlights = 100% gluten free
I visit New York every year, so this post is a living tree and I update with additional restaurants and bakeries, as well as newcomers to the gluten free dining scene. The first 10 here are places I loved during my summer visits.
1. La Esquina. Go on a nice day. Order from the takeout window and sit across the street in the park. Warning: you might need to fight off pigeons whilst eating. My favourites: Carnitas tacos , chicken tinga tacos, elote. Staff was very knowledgeable about gluten free eating, and celiac disease.

Bagels are a New York specialty, and you shouldnt be left out just because you have celiac disease.

The Little Beet & The Little Beet Table
I want to profusely thank the Endless Distances reader who recommended The Little Beet to me via Facebook! The Little Beet Table is a 100% gluten free, sit down restaurant. There are also five The Little Beet locations across the city, which are fast-casual grab and go places. I was walking down the street when I passed The Little Beet close to Rockefeller Centre. We were hungry so we just popped in! Other gluten free travelers know how rare this experience is not having to hunt around for an appropriate restaurant! Anyway, the food here is stunningly healthy. There are so many yummy options it was hard to choose, but I went with a beet-based falafel bowl which was crispy and perfect.

Senza Gluten Cafe & Bakery
I mentioned Senza Gluten in the 100% gluten free restaurants section, but they also have the Senza Gluten Cafe & Bakery! This is a more casual setting, where you can either sit down or grab some pastries to go. Im a sucker for eclairs so obviously thats my pick, but you can also get fresh bread, muffins, cakes, danishes, and so much more.
- Senza Gluten Cafe & Bakery // 171 Sullivan Street, Manhattan
Noglu Nyc: Gluten Free Croissants & More
Ive been to the Noglu in Paris, but I actually had no idea they had a location in New York City. I vividly remember NoGlu being one of the first places abroad that reinforced the idea that gluten free food can be amazing.
While I was planning my trip to NYC, I came across Noglu, and when I mapped it out, it happened to be just a few blocks away from where I was staying on the Upper East Side. SOLD!
Its a dedicated gluten free bakery in NYCs Upper East Side that makes everything from little apple tarts, to breads of all shapes and sizes, a range of cookies, muffins, cupcakes, scones, and CROISSANTS.
Since being to NoGlu in Paris 6 years ago, I dont actually think Ive had a croissant. Its not that I dont like croissants, its more that I never see them made gluten free.
Go for the croissants, stay for the cupcakes, tarts, baguettes, sandwiches, crepes, toast, and the rest of the gluten free goodies they have to offer. Well worth a trip out of the way you can hit Noglu and By the Way in one trip theyre a handful of blocks away from each other.
Head to this gluten free Bakery for breakfast or lunch, then hit the nearby Met, take a stroll through Central Park, or just wander.
