Gluten-Free at Broadway Bites in New York City

Urban Space NYC continues to bring awesome markets to public spaces in New York City. The latest opening is Broadway Bites at the intersections of 33rd Street and Broadway, a hugely busy location in the heart of Manhattan. Just steps away from Macy’s and the Empire State Building, Broadway Bites is a great place to stop for a bite to eat and a rest.

As with all of my excursions, I am always on the look out for gluten-free food. Broadway Bites pleasantly surprised me when they reopened on October 6th. There are many options throughout the open-air market that were gluten-free friendly.

Palenque Homemade Colombian Food
Fryer is used for only yuca empanadas and yuca fries. Arepas are also gluten-free, except for the vegan option.

Onigiri by Tampopo
Sushi-like rice balls with gluten-free marked on the menu. Ask about sauces

Bangkok Bar
Server said everything but the Thai Basil Chicken Rice Bowl was gluten-free.

Two Tablespoons
Gluten-free chili and mac-and-cheese!

Bar Suzette
Gluten-free crepes available, but the griddle is shared! Must be cleaned between preparation.

Macaron Parlour
All macarons are gluten-free.

Broadway Bites is open daily from 11am to 9pm. I suggest going after 2pm and avoiding the midtown lunch rush. This market is only open until November 14th, so don’t delay stopping by for some gluten-free food.


As with any gluten-free dining, it is your responsibility to ask about the gluten-free options and other allergens at each vendor.
