One of the most common questions I see in the nut allergy community is “where can I find nut-free ice cream?!?” Here’s the answer: A La Mode Shoppe in NYC, a 100% nut-free ice cream shop with dairy-free and gluten-free options as well
Top Chef finalist and The Chew co-host Carla Hall has officially opened the doors to her first restaurant: Carla Hall’s Southern Kitchen. Her speciality dish? Hot Chicken, a unique spin on traditional style Southern fried chicken with an extra layer of added heat (six to choose from to be exact)! The best part? Carla Hall’s Southern Kitchen is an 100% nut-free kitchen.
Of the 550 pizza places in NYC, only 25 offer gluten-free pizza. In the mood for just a slice instead of the whole pie? Youâ€™re now limited to about 5 spots. Options for those wanting gluten-free pizza by the slice in NYC are pretty dismal, which is why when I heard that Vinnieâ€™s Pizzeria in Brooklyn was creating made from scratch gluten-free pizza by the slice, I wanted to learn more!
Prior to my gluten intolerance, eating at restaurants was a regular occurrence for me. Once I transitioned to a gluten-free diet, I felt afraid to go to restaurants in fear that I’d be gluten-ed. However, living in fear is no way to live at all, especially in a city like NYC. Determined to not be restricted by my gluten intolerance, I’ve found quite a few spots that are not only safe to eat at, but go out of their way to accommodate those with food allergies.
Last night my husband and I ventured to Blue Smoke. I’d read about the lengths that they take to accommodate diners with allergies, and I must say it was one of the best experiences we’ve ever had.
