Gluten-Free Fun on Katie Going Global
Back in January, I connected with Katie of Katie Going Global through Twitter. Katie's blog is a travel blog first and a gluten-free blog second. Her tales of traveling to Egypt, Wimbeldon, and much more are really exciting and inspiring. After exchanging a few emails, Katie asked me to contribute to her website with an article about being gluten-free in NYC. This contribution has inspired me to put together a series of reviews and recommendations from NYC for my readers. I answer at least three emails a week with people asking me for tips on gluten-free dining in NYC so I am going to consolidate my emails and start posting my recommendations.

Here is an excerpt from my posting for Katie Going Global:

Gluten-Free in New York City 
As a gluten-free blogger living in New York City and the lead organizer of the New York City Celiac Disease Meetup group, I am often contacted about the best gluten-free places to eat in NYC. I am excited to share a few of my favorite gluten-free restaurants and tips for dining out in New York City with you, so grab an unlimited MetroCard and go explore!
I am a big fan of restaurants in the Gluten-Free Restaurant Awareness Program (GFRAP), a program sponsored by the Gluten Intolerance Group. This program “facilitates a relationship between individuals with celiac disease and other forms of gluten intolerance, and restaurants.” We are lucky to have more than 20 GFRAP restaurants in New York City. These restaurants are able to accommodate gluten-free diners with a modified menu and they are often very knowledgeable about gluten-free dietary restrictions. As a reminder, please discuss all of your dietary needs directly with your server and/or manager. 
Any visitors to NYC are welcome to join the NYC Celiac Disease Meetup group for one of our upcoming events. With more than 1,200 members, we are the largest Meetup group in the country and offer online support and local events to the gluten-free community. You can see our calendar of events here. 
As an additional tool for those of you traveling to New York City, I have put together a Google map of restaurants, bars, and markets that cater to the gluten-free community. I update this map regularly, but I still suggest you call ahead to make sure your destination is still open. NYC restaurants tend to turn over quickly at times, especially in this economy. You can view my Gluten-Free Fun in New York City map here.
