Great Gluten Free Restaurant in NYC

Do you love to eat out, but often find your gluten free choices very limited ? Or does the waiter say they made the meal gluten free but after the meal, your stomach tells you differently?

I like to find restaurants that really understand gluten free cooking and offer a wide variety of choices. Last weekend I found a winner .

I went to see a Broadway show in NYC Friday night with family and good friends and made reservations at a delightful Italian restaurant that boasted a gluten free menu. The ambiance of the restaurant was typically New York City, small and crowded, but the service and food were excellent. We asked about their gluten free choices, and they brought us out a special full menu that included, pizza, pasta, bread, appetizers, soup, salads, meat, fish and chicken entrees, beer, wines, desserts etc. I was pleasantly surprised from the get go. Two of us were gluten free, and we really enjoyed our complimentary gluten free bread basket and dip, the chick pea crust pizza appetizer ( we ordered artichoke topping- very tasty) tomato cream soup, and our entrees. My friend chose a seasoned grilled salmon with asparagus and eggplant puree side; I chose a gluten free pasta dish that was excellent. Our other guests, all of whom were not gluten free, ordered off the regular menu. They enjoyed pastas, chicken entrees, and fish entrees that they said were outstanding. We ended the dinner with one of their specialties, a freshly brewed (at the table) pot of Ethiopian coffee (came in decaf as well). We were too full for dessert, but both the gluten free and regular desserts looked good.

If you are in NYC and looking for a good gluten free restaurant, I recommend Nizza Restaruant on 9th Street between 44th and 45th. In addition to the food, the service was excellent. The service was fast but they didn't rush us. The seven of us were able to enjoy appetizers to coffee in about an hour. In addition, they had both inside and outside seating and the prices were moderate.

If you know of any good gluten free restaurants, please share.
