Paleo & Gluten Free Restaurants in NYC!
New York City is one of my favorite places on earth. I recently spent 10 days visiting family in NY, four of them in NYC. I was determined to eat everything I possibly could. If you follow my instagram, you know that eat I did.
Prior to my trip I spent a lot of time researching safe places for me to eat. I can’t stress how helpful this is for traveling with a food allergy or diet concern. I’m a complete foodie and want to make each meal count, so I take the extra time to research menus, cross contamination procedures, and reviews before I travel. I mentioned in a previous post, Packing Paleo: Gluten Free Travel Tips that we find it really helpful to program allergy & celiac safe restaurants into google maps on our phones, so no matter what happens (like every subway you need being closed for repairs) it’s super easy to find a safe meal.
I use paleo as a template, not a place of perfection, so some of the reviews will include non paleo foods. While I didn’t stick to strict paleo in the city (cause all the FOOD!), I was extremely careful about eating gluten free. If it’s important for you to eat strict paleo and you can actually resist the gluten free breadsticks from Risoterria sticking to paleo is pretty easy to do. To save you time on the research, here is part one of my favorite Paleo and GF restaurants in the big apple.
