The Grey Dog

With so many delicious restaurants/cafes in the Nolita/SoHo area, it is rare that I frequent one particular spot. That is, of course, unless you are The Grey Dog’s Cafe. With several locations throughout NYC, the are rather easily accessible and a must go, especially if you are gluten-free. With salad, sandwiches, burgers and omelets, there is something for everyone. And as a bonus, they have gluten-free bread – so all their sandwiches can be made for the Celiacs/gluten intolerant. Can’t decide between a salad & a sandwich? Get both – with their salad/sandwich combo:   Yes, that would be the GF bread. And here is the same salad plus...

Siena Tavern

He may not have won Top Chef, but Fabio Viviani certainly came out on top. The season 5 fan favorite teamed up with restauranteurs David Rekhson & Luke Stoioff to open Siena Tavern; a rustic Italian restaurant/bar in River North, Chicago. The inspiration for the spot came after the team took a weeklong trip to Italy and immersed themselves in the culture and more precisely, the food. Peep the vid below: After hearing such amazing things about the restaurant, I made it a top priority to dine there while in Chicago. Knowing it was Italian, I was concerned about whether or not there would be a lot of gluten-free options. I was happily surprised to see that Siena Tavern...

Spain Part IV: Ibiza

Spain Part IV: Ibiza

The last thing we expected to come across while strolling the streets of Ibiza was a healthy eatery. Lo & behold, a sign bearing the words “green juice” hit us like a hammer on a nail. Upon further inspection, we realized Passion Cafe not only served up healthy eats, but had a gluten-free menu. We knew immediately it was a must go. And so we did…that night for dinner.   Since we were pretty much on a roll with ordering the same entrees at every meal, we decided to keep it up and all got:   Simply Amazing. We also shared:     And for dessert:     And…   The pictures speak louder than words – delicious....
