New York City voted the Most Celiac Friendly City!

I have a major love for New York City. I am excited to both live and work here and try to take in everything this lovely city has to offer on a regular basis. I have been an avid traveler over the years and I have come to realize that living gluten-free in NYC is really not a big deal at all. There are four Whole Foods in Manhattan alone, there seems to be a health food store on every fourth block, and there are at least 14 restaurants that are part of GFRAP in the city. We are truly gluten-free blessed in the great city of New York.

In January, New York City was voted the Most Celiac-Friendly Destination by GlutenFreeTravelSite. This site echos my thoughts about having Celiac Disease in NYC. "Awareness is good, and restaurants are eager to stay relevant by catering to the fast-growing group of diagnosed Celiacs lobbying for more dining options."

For those of you who are considering visiting New York City for the first time, you can feel comfortable traveling and eating gluten-free here. For us "natives", we need to continue to support all of the gluten-free establishments that cater to the gluten-free and Celiac communities.

Here is a recent list of restaurants in New York City and the outer boroughs that are part of the Gluten-Free Restaurant Awareness Program.
