Help! Celiac in Park Slope!

I was diagnosed last week with celiac disease and hoping that this board -- and you -- will have great tips for where to eat out without poisoning myself, especially in Park Slope. Feel free to recommend other sites, blogs, etc. I'm a rube, but at least the PSFC has plenty of things to stock my pantry with.

      Thank you! Thank you! I did a celiac search but not one for gluten free. Huge help!

      I did some research on this for my visiting sister with Celiac Disease. Some random information:

      There is a gluten-free bakery at 3rd and Carroll. Google it. You order in advance, mostly.

      There are a couple well-respected gluten-free restaurants in Manhattan. I got my sis and her boyfriend a gift certificate to the Italian one in the Village (really!), and they reported it was excellent.

      I also got her some gluten-free bread at Trader Joes, and she said it was the best she'd ever had. I see a lot of gluten-free products at TJs, so that will be a good resource for you.

      Here's hoping you feel better soon!

        The Italian place you are talking about was probably Rissoteria? They have g/f pasta, pizza, sandwiches, beer, etc. Babycakes (gluten free bakery) is nearby.

        Relax! And welcome to the tribe. Being diagnosed with CD today is significantly easier than it was when I was diagnosed 20 years ago. Very few restaurants cannot handle a GF diet- its up to you to be aware of what you can and cannot eat- and be diligent. Concentrate on what you can eat, not what you can't and you will be fine...
