Gluten Free dining in Middlesex county

  • 9

My wife was diagnosed with Ciliacs disease. We are having trouble finding restaurants that servr gluten free food. Any ideas? We live in woodbridge but dont mind traveling a little ways to find a good place. We are also looking for places to eat a reasonable lunch at. Thanks

  1. Not far from the southern Middlesex County Line. Never eaten their gluten-free food, but they're serious about it.. they have separate utensils and preparation area for it.

    There's also www.GFdelights.com, which appears to be a listing of gluten free restaurants.. there are 19 in Middlesex county, though most appear to be chains (and Piquant is out of business).

    1. This is totally not in Middlesex County... but if you ever find yourself in South Jersey, Pasta Pomodoro in Voorhees has an extensive gluten-free menu (see pages 9-10 of the menu on their website). They sponsor some celiac dining events and have won awards for their GF cooking. I haven't had any of their GF items but their regular food is delicious! Service can be hit-or-miss on weeknights but is pretty reliable on weekends.

      1. Just got this email ad for Gluten Free dining on Tuesdays at Chimney Rick Inn in Bridgewater. It's just past the Middlesex County border off off 22. http://www.chimneyrockinn.com/ftp/ad_...

        1. Main Street Trattoria has a gluten free menu (Metuchen).
          I think Bonefish Grill on Rt 1 across from the mall has one also.
          Skylark Diner in Edison on Rt 1 accommodated my multi food allergic son (allergic to wheat and barley and others but not celiac, is ana, carries epi) in November.

          1. Not in Middlesex, but this may be helpful if you are in Somerset or Hunterdon Counties: The front page of the March 4, 2010 Hunterdon County Democrat has an article that a chef at Alfonso's 202 (Raritan Township, east of the Flemington Circle) developed a gluten free pizza dough. In addition to selling gluten free pizza at the Raritan Alfonso's, the article mentions that the Alfonso's in Somerville also sells the gluten free pizza, and that the dough can also be purchased frozen. Good luck.

            Here is link to article, I think: http://www.nj.com/hunterdon-county-de...

            1. I saw a sign yesterday on a storefront in Fords, off New Brunswick Ave, across from Siperstein paints (not sure what the street name is...). "GLUTEN FREE DINING COMING SOON". IDK if this is an old sign, new or opened and closed (not very helpful I know...). BUT maybe someone else will see the post and know more.

              1. re: nyebaby37

                they are finally open after a long set up. I have not tried them, but they are next to Mama's Boys Pizza who's address is 341 Crows Mill Road Fords, NJ 08863

                  Fallon's Bake Shop is where you are referring to nyebaby37 and andrehladek. They are finally open! I met the owner and her parents, very nice people. Picked up a delicious loaf of fresh bread, after sampling a piece. Right now they are cash only establishment, and menus are being printed. A sampling of what was available today were: red velvet whoopie pies( cream cheese filling), red velvet cupcakes with a non-dairy icing, sandwich white bread, Italian bread (with and without sesame seeds), chocolate chip cookies, and chocolate chip muffins. The sandwich loaf was $7.00, but compared to other GF breads I've tried, it's by far the best.

                  Also available is a 10" cheese pizza, and cheese ravioli, which was $11.50 for a dozen.

              2. Not too sure about Middlesex Cty, but I use this list of NJ Restaurants that have Gluten Free menus whenever I'm looking for somewhere new to try: http://glutenfreedairyfreenj.blogspot.... The same site has quite a few reviews as well but they all seem to be in the Northern part of the state.
