I was born and raised in New York. I grew up 30 miles outside of Manhattan, went to college 90 miles north of the city, and have worked and lived in New York City for more than 16 years. I ran the NYC Celiac Disease Meetup group for more than a decade and grew it to more than 2,000 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 am the (un)official 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 New York City.

Gluten-Free friendly reservations with Open Table
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.

This map was updated in April 2022 but only for the 100% gluten-free restaurants and bakeries.
