Gluten-Free Dining Post Hurricane Sandy

As you may know I wrote a blog post earlier last week on #DineOutNYC & #EatDownTipUp this incredible movement to help the New York Restaurant community get back up on their feet, as well as their workers, who tirelessly feed us day in and day out after Hurricane Sandy.  Both have created such buzz and response and it’s so incredible to see a community pull together in the face of such a tragedy.

I wanted to follow-up with some great resources/tips for those in need of gluten-free dining.

  • Open Table NYC:  You can sort by gluten-free restaurants by neighborhood and many restaurants have posted if they are re-opened or are still closed
  • Locate Special Diet:  This wonderful allows you to search based on your dietary needs by city
  • Yelp:  Yelp allows you to search by gluten-free restaurants as well and I’ve seen some restaurants posting as to their “open” or “closed” status

There are also some really great gluten-free food writers & food bloggers who can be resources for you if your not familiar with NYC’s gluten-free dining scene.  Here is a list of my fav’s:

The Best of Gluten-Free Awards just recently awarded New York City a “Best Of” award for being on of  “2012’s Best City for Gluten-Free Living or Travel.”

So many people in New York and New Jersey are still without the basic essentials.  You can donate to the Red Cross

Make sure your prepared in case of a natural disaster by checking out this write-up and links from the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness.
