I was born and raised in New York. I grew up 30 miles outside of Manhattan, went to school 90 miles north of the city, and have been working and living here for more than 10 years. I run the NYC Celiac Disease Meetup group which has grown to more than 1500 members since I started organizing events for the group in 2005. I have established some really great gluten-free and Celiac connections in the city and I consider myself a New York City Gluten-Free Expert.
I am always happy to help you navigate this great city. I’ve put together some great tools that will help you find gluten-free food in the Big Apple.

Gluten-Free friendly reservations with Open Table
I I frequently use this tool to make reservations in New York City. You can alert the restaurant ahead of time about your dietary needs which is a nice perk to making your online dining reservations. I’ve also written an article for OpenTable about gluten-free dining tips. You can read the original article here.
Gluten-Free Map of New York City
This map is a labor of love. Restaurants in NYC come and go very quickly. I update this map on a regular basis but please call ahead to confirm the restaurants are still open and that the restaurant is still serving gluten-free food.
Note: While some of these restaurants are certified through the Gluten-Free Restaurant Program, the majority are not. Please use this list as a guide of gluten-free friendly locations.
