Eating out in New York City with food intolerances

Updated: Feb 21, 2019

September 2015.

New York is great for eating out, no doubt about that. There is literally something for everyone even me with my many intolerances! New Yorkers are definitely fanatical about food and with Paleo making such a big impact along with stores like Whole Foods, it's a winner for me.

Whenever I go to New York I am always a regular at Hu Kitchen.

Union Street station is the nearest stop, and  it's on 78th Street & 5th Avenue. It is a Paleo restaurant, serving organic, paleo food, there are some vegan dishes, juices, raw desserts, etc. as well. Well suited for Gluten Free foodies, everything is labelled.


You can eat in or take away. This is my top favourite NYC haunt!

Granted, they're not known for presentation but has

amazing food I can eat. Not to mention the prices are quite reasonable. I tend to sit down for a meal and treat myself to a gorgeous dessert, returning later to get take out if our hotel room has a fridge :)

Thelma on Clinton was a brilliant restaurant recommended by my husband's colleagues. They had a good selection of gluten free, and the chef was clearly interested in healthy eating, and had experimented with some raw, and vegan dishes. Later we found out why, the owner is gluten intolerant! Nice atmosphere and friendly staff. I will definitely be back. Nearest subway is Delancey Street. www.thelmaonclinton.com

Frere De Lys is a French restaurant and wine bar up on 87th Street and 1st Avenue. They are friendly and knowledgable about their ingredients. Nice food, and french sized portions!


Zengo is a Latin Asian fusion restaurant in mid-town. They have a separate gluten free menu, tasty food, and great ambience.


If you have recently been to New York and have any other recommendations please leave me a comment. It would be great to try some more places next time too!
