In the largest city in the entire United States
, the availability of gluten-free meals is unlimited...
It is easy to lose your bearings in a city like New York, where everything is enormous, especially if you are not going to be there very long. So it’s a good idea to find the location of the gluten-free restaurants and stores in your zone before you leave
What can you expect to find in the largest city in the U.S. with over 8 million inhabitants
, the so-called "capital of the free world"?
This city has everything and, when you first arrive, there is too much of everything.
When you first become aware of the frenzied speed of every aspect of life in the city (even the pedestrians don’t walk, they run), you realize there is only one thing to do: take a deep breath and dive into the extraordinary multiplicity of a place in which all the contrasts of the entire world merge together
. Here the most diverse cultures live side by side, and you can find the most opulent luxury as well as the most extreme poverty.
The metropolis exercises its irresistible attraction on every person in different ways: some are drawn to its many museums, art galleries and world famous theaters
, others to the posh world of shopping, others to the trendy lifestyle of Brooklyn and the other emerging districts, or simply to the imposing views of its skyscrapers and urban canyons
. Keeping in mind a few destinations and starting points is undoubtedly wise. And it makes unplanned adventures even more enjoyable.
Naturally, the offering of restaurants and gluten-free products is absolutely amazing
and beyond all expectations. In spite of the abundance of the offering, and considering the geographical extension of the city, finding the bakery that sells the perfect gluten-free bagel will require some searching before you start.
There are many blogs and websites devoted exclusively to the subject of gluten-free eating in New York, such as www.glutenfreenyc.blogspot.com
, for example.
The Gluten Intolerance Group of North America has a page entitled http://www.glutenfreerestaurants.org
with a general guide to the restaurants. For New York there is also a complete guide of over 300 pages, "The Gluten-Free Guide To New York"
) created specially for those who suffer from gluten intolerance
