gluten free in long island

  • 4

Does anyone know of restaurants in Nassau or western Suffolk County Long Island that offer glutin free options. I would appreciate any help in this area as this adjustment is proving to be difficult. Any type of food would be fine.

  1. Hi there, Lilyin. You have a some options. Putting aside the chains with GF items (Outback, PF Changs), there's the Bare Naked Bakery & Cafe in Bellmore,
    http://www.barenakedbakery.com/
    which is *totally* GF (the menu is on their web site).

    Cafe Formaggio in Carle Place has a GF menu:

    Mr. Miceli's Pizza in Rockville Center ha GF pizza:

    As does Pizza Bistro in Massapequa Park, and they have pasta, too.

    In fact, there are a lot of GF pizza and pasta places all over.

    La Bottega has a bunch of locations:

    but call ahead, because not all of them have the GF menu.

    For non-restaurant food items, Joan's Great Bakes:

    Best Ever Low-Carb Cakes in Massapequa mainly aims at being low carb/sugar free, but they're also GF:

    Azure Chocolate in Greenlawn has amazing stuff, including stunningly good GF s'mores--they even make the marshmallow and the graham crackers (from buckwheat, IIRC):

    For supplies:
    Jandi in Oceanside (probably the biggest GF aisle
    )http://www.jandis.com

    and Fairway in Plainview

    out in Suffolk, Cornucopia in Sayville

      That's a pretty complete rundown!

      New in Huntington: Wild Flours Bake Shop

      But make sure you check out this website, a clearinghouse for all LI guten-free info:

        Thanks for the link to Wild Flours, Erica. I'm curious about their breads: that always seems to be the Achilles heel of GF baking. I don't have celiac myself, but my sister and niece do, so I'm always on the lookout.

        hah! "Wild Flours." I get it.

    2. Thank you both for all the useful information. I feel relieved knowing that there are restaurant options as well information available that will help me deal with a gllutin free diet.
