Del Posto

An amazing gluten-free homemade bowl of pasta is difficult to come by. Which is why, if you are looking for the best of the best, you have to be willing to shell out some cold hard cash to get it. Enter Del Posto, the colossal Italian restaurant located on Tenth Avenue in Chelsea with extraordinary attention to detail. Your own personal “captain” will walk you through the menu while another server fills your water glass as another places your handbag upon a small stool so it doesn’t sit on the floor. But the best part of this restaurant is not the decor or the service, it’s the fact that chef Mark Ladner perfected the recipe for their signature...

The Farm Table

The Farm Table

When driving back to NYC from Vermont after a weekend of skiing, there is little to choose from for food along the way unless your ideal meal is Burger King, Roy Rogers or McDonald’s. That’s why when I spotted a sign for The Farm Table on I91, it was like a beacon of food heaven luring me off the highway. What I was in for was a much better-than-expected meal. Not only did the menu sound amazing, 80% of it was offered gluten-free. I had a few questions; what is a Kringle Candle and why is the name attached to a gluten-free farm to table restaurant? Turns out, soy based Kringle Candle was started by the son ofΒ Michael Kittredge, the man who started Yankee...

One Lucky Duck

One Lucky Duck

Shortly after opening Pure Food & Wine in 2004, raw food enthusiast Sarma expanded her raw food empire by putting out her first cookbook and opening her adjacent juice bar/takeaway; One Lucky Duck. Situated around the corner from her signature restaurant, as well as in Chelsea Market, One Lucky Duck serves not only takeaway dishes, but also tons of packaged raw goodies, juices & desserts. Honestly, if I could afford to eat at Pure Food or One Lucky Duck daily, I would. Β I happen to love raw/vegan food when prepared correctly. And did I mention, everything (except 1 or 2 items) on the Pure Food & Wine/One Lucky Duck menu is also gluten-free.Β  A note to the...

Hampton Chutney Co.

Hampton Chutney Co.

  You no longer have to reside in the Hamptons to enjoy the Hampton Chutney Co. After meeting at an ashram (a hermitage, monastic community, or other place of religious retreat for Hindus.), Isabel & Gary MacGurn decided to open an Indian inspired eatery in 1997. In 2001, they expanded to NYC in two addition locations. Specializing in gluten-free dosasΒ (large, crispy, sourdough crepes) & gluten-free uttapams (same as dosas, just served as a pancake), I knew it was only a matter of time before I tried this spot.   Named after their famous chutney (Cilantro, Curry, Mango, Tomato, Peanut, Pumpkin (seasonal)), each order comes with your choice of sauce. I...
