gluten free in long island

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.

      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:
      http://www.cafeformaggio.com/

      Mr. Miceli's Pizza in Rockville Center ha GF pizza:
      http://mrmiceli.com/

      As does Pizza Bistro in Massapequa Park, and they have pasta, too.
      http://www.pizzabistrony.com/

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

      La Bottega has a bunch of locations:
      http://www.ilovepanini.com/
      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:
      http://www.besteverlowcarb.com/

      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):
      http://azurechocolate.com/

      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!

          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.
