5 Napkin Burger NYC

5 Napkin Burger is another one of my favorite gluten-free-friendly restaurants in the city. I have found the staff to be very knowledgeable and understanding of gluten allergies. I even had a server who was gluten-free himself. 5 Napkin offers gluten free buns, beers and fries! What more could you ask for? They offer a pretty big menu with good variety. I recommend looking over the menu and selecting a few meals you are interested in then ask your sever if they can be prepared gluten-free. My favorite burger is the Avocado-Ranch (minus the ranch because it’s not gluten free!) with a New Grist beer. 

Gluten Free Mexican in NYC!

Dos Caminos has become my go-to Mexican restaurant in the city. The servers are very knowledgeable and understand gluten sensitivities. As always, it’s important to notify your server of your gluten allergy when you are seated. Almost everything on their menu can be prepared gluten-free! The kitchen even puts a label on your plate to indicate a food allergy, so there is no mix up! I have been told that they try their best to make sure the corn chips (for the salsa and guacamole) are fried separately, but they can’t 100% guarantee there aren’t any slip ups. Instead, you can ask for veggies to eat with your guacamole. I have only been to the Dos Caminos on 3rd  Avenue, so make sure to discuss your gluten allergy with the staff at their other locations. I recommend the chicken or mahi-mahi tacos! And of course a Margarita!
