        www.bistangonyc.com . Great menu; affordable prices. We've never had a bad time there.

          My favorite is Pala:


          The gluten-free pizza is so good that I had to double-check with them that my order was indeed gluten-free. They use a dedicated fryer for the apps and other fried foods (I had delectable stuffed squash blossoms earlier in the Fall)... well worth a visit.

          Lili's 57 (asian food) has a gluten-free menu -- the gluten-free tempura is a real treat:


          I concur with Bistango -- it's friendly and has a nice menu and good food.

            Bar Breton has lots of gluten-free menu items, and they're clearly indicated on there. The burgers and crepes are good.

                Risotteria in the West Village is another good option.

                  Risotteria is good when it's good, and nastily awful when it's bad, including a rude attitude of "we won't correct any problems". On my last visit there I was served a mediocre pizza (I didn't complain about it -- I accepted its slightly soggy crust and cold sausage) and inedible carrot cake. The carrot cake was dry and impossible to swallow unless you had a heavy oil-based lubricant for it - of which I had none. It had been recommended to me by the server. I explained (nicely) that it was dry and not edible (my dining partner concurred) -- and asked if it was possible to substitute something else. The answer was "NO". We went back and forth about it and I was finally told that if I wanted to do anything at all about it other than pay the $7 for it (our total tab was around $80 for two), that I would have to come back during the day to speak to the owner. I explained it would be better use of my time to just point the poor quality of food and service whenever I had the chance. :-)
